By the Numbers

Vacation round-up by the numbers:

7 states I've been in in the last week
1169 miles driven
3 planes taken
4 airports visited
2 hotels we slept in
1 vacation home
0 stops at McDonald's
$4.43 the most we paid for gas
$4.02 the least we paid for gas
3 baseball games attended
3 baseball stadiums visited
1 cowboy BBQ attended (yeah for wranglers!)
7 naps taken
427 pages read in my book
2 movies watched
0 loads of laundry done

It was a great vacation. It was so nice to spend time and have fun with the family. I need to remember this is what life if about. It's relaxing, taking things in stride, having fun and nurturing the relationships that matter.

Yay! How fun! I think there's not much better in the world than car trips! How did the little one do?

ON a side note - those gas prices are crazy! I just paid $3.57 yesterday! I guess living close to the gulf has some benefits - of course I'm also prepping for a tropical storm! :-)

Oh, and NO McDonald's??? I'm way impressed!

Wow - no fast food stops! Way to go. I'm intrigued by yur comment on my blog about hubby losing the weight after nixing fast food lunches. More incentive!

AMEN. I had something smack me in the face as a reminder of this recently. IMO it's all about that last piece.

glad you had fun.
