Well if it isn't my favorite brace of quadrangular, marigold felines.

Here's hoping you'll be able to keep up... I'll type more slowly, okay?


And no... you didn't use enough "!'s". I believe you missed two.

this one ! and that one over there -> !

Welcome to the crazy train!

I don't know how they do it in Canada, but here...unless you show your driver's license to everyone you meet, you can be 16 as many times as you want.

Nope. Not that common.
I've turned 21 for the 13th time last month.

We go to Vegas.
Hey now...I had a sleepover for my sweet 16.

I bit.

"Okay, honey. Why are you looking forward to your 16th birthday?"
She nonchalantly replies. "Well, you know. You turn 16 and you get a car."
Where was this information when i was 16? Again...I got a sleepover!!!

Ok granted, I had a car since i was 12...but still...It was a hand me down anyway, so it didn't count.

Sounds like our household.

That means that I broke Ruby.
I think you and T-Man really need to get together someday...You can run each other ragged, while me and Ruby just stroll along behind, actually ENJOYING ourselves, instead of whizzing past everything and then coming back and getting the *look* when you don't remember certain things.

In this day and age, they are expensive flying out of anywhere. We spent months changing flights to get a cheaper deal and that is just to California from NM.

I had my arguments in order.
1. We've already been to WDW, it'd be nice to go somewhere else.
2. The kids are getting older. Who knows, now that Elle is turning 16, if she'll be able to travel with us much longer. School, job, boyfriend, etc.
3. My parents took me when I was young (10 or so) and I really enjoyed it.

All Ruby said was, "Let's go for it."
So much for preparation...Again, Ruby is just like me. T-Man starts talking about travel ideas and I've gotten to the point where i just say, "OK"...

Sounds good to me...I'm living vicariously through you this trip, since i will never have the chance to go out there and see any of it...

So our Itinerary is Paris, Cologne, Munich/Bavaria, Venice.
Awww...taking the wife's ideas into account...Nice one!

We did not, repeat, NOT go to Disneyland Paris. Yes there was a little Disneyesque bit during the trip... but it wasn't that.
I'll come along. Do I need to sneak into luggage? Hide in a cage and act like a dog? Whatever...

You did! Welcome aboard, Marita!

(Whoa. That was close... Too close. I originally typed "Welcome aboard, Marita" and forgot the comma. I don't want to give anyone the impression that you're that kind of girl.

You might be. I just don't want anyone to get the impression from me.)

Hi Smidgy! Welcome to looney tunesville. I know, I know. No going to Europe until you can manage getting the big guy on a plane.... whithout waking him up. Just how many vikes would that take, anyway?
