The Big Trip
So, you may have heard that we went to New York. My sister and brother-in-law are living on Long Island, so the three of us went along with my parents (Mimi & G-Dad). We had about 10 days of fun and have spent this week recovering. We drove to Tennessee on Friday. On Saturday, Hollis played his first round of golf with his own "weal golf bats". They were a gift from a friend of Mimi's who's son was done with them. Originally, John had planned to take him out for 18 holes, I laughed at him in my head. We ended up "playing" 9 holes and by the 7th Hollis was asking to be carried. I told him that wasn't in my caddie contract. On Sunday, we all piled into G-Dad's "snazzy" new van and headed for New York. We made it to about Allentown, PA where we stopped for the night. The best part about the hotel was that it was across the street from an amusement park. Hollis and G-Dad went out early in the morning to watch the roller coasters and I am pretty sure everyone in the hotel heard about it. On Monday we finished up our drive to New York and of course went the wrong direction and ended up fighting NYC traffic, at least I wasn't driving! We arrived at Melanie's house Monday afternoon and relax there the rest of the day. Earlier on Saturday, while debating which of Mimi's big trucks would be able to take the trip, someone mentioned that Melanie had a truck for Hollis at her house. The first words out of his mouth on Monday afternoon were, "What kind of truck you have?". Don't let it be said that he is not paying attention. Hollis was able to experience his first ever ice cream truck on Monday. He choose the rainbow popsicle, always a classic.
