Weekend Assignment #203: Road Trip

Karen telling us to go on a road trip for this weekend assignment.

Where to go ... If we were taking the kids, I'd probably say Wisconsin Dells. It's a relatively pain free drive from the Chicago area, and the kids would have fun. I was looking at the web site just now; it is a lot different than when I was a kid. We went when I was young, about six, I only remember one thing -- conjunctivitis. No ski teams, no skiing squirrel, I only remember sitting by the pool with my eye oozing some greenish, white stuff. Then, during the night, the ooze faeries would come and weld my eyes shut, just for fun. It was a good time! I'm sure the bacteria that caused my condition is long gone now; we should be safe.

If it was just my wife and I, we would probably go downtown, stay in a nice hotel, and eat in a nice restaurant. We did that on our 10th anniversary and it was nice. A good time out on our own.

Karen is giving us $500 to spend. We might have to use some of our own money.

Eh, downtown doesn't qualify as a road trip, but I'm intrigued about Wisconsin Dells. I expect your eyes would be safe this time. ;)

The Dells sound wonderful. Next time I'm in that area, I'm going to make a side trip out there. I'll bring eye medicine just in case :0)

Kiva: They probably sell it poolside now. :)
