Year of Pleasures 9
Road tripping with the beasties. Okay so it's not always a pleasure while in the car although there are moments...like when Umberto decided the giant peach in Gaffney SC looked like a butt and we all chortled for a few minutes. There's lots of singing to punk and indie bands. But what I really love is how the kids so dig being in new places. They love walking around and seeing new things. They're game for all kinds of adventures even just exploring. And they really love hotels. I always joke that we could spend a week in the hotel down the road and they'd think it was a vacation. But I love that the beasties appreciate these moments that suspended from "real" life even if it's just for a weekend.
