Greener pastures... or something like that

Well, I'm going to be on the road again this week. This time, my hubby is heading to Boise and then Portland for work, and since he's driving, the boys and I are tagging along for the ride (again). It's nice to be able to do that, even though it means having to take care of two young boys in a hotel room (with no car - aka no escape) during the days. It's worth it to see Daddy at night, instead of being separated for a whole week. And I also get to travel and see fun cities and do fun stuff at night.

The last (and only) time I went to Portland was when I was a teenager, probably fifteen or so. I remember it being VERY green. And gorgeous. I hope it lives up to the memories I have! I'm really excited to see it again. Anyone have suggestions of fun things we should do at night, when my hubby is done with his meetings?

So, my blogging may be a bit sporadic this week, but you never know. Wireless internet + nap time might = lots of blog posts. You'll just have to wait and see! Here's hoping to the kids doing well in the car, getting lots of reading and writing done (ha ha, we'll see), and having a fun trip!
What fun plans do you have this week?

I hope you have a great trip and the boys don't give you too much trouble! I know car rides can make anyone a little nutty, but I remember the hell I gave my mother after a 17 hour drive with me and my two sisters, we weren't always the best behaved!

Plans for the week, hmm, work which is no fun, but laying by the pool, dinner and a movie with the hubs and a BBQ on Sunday with friends!

Oooh wish I were going on a vacation road trip. We desperately need one. Have a great time! I wish I could offer advice, but I've never been there, myself.

Have a great time and I hope nap time is great!

OOOh road tripping and a mini vacation sounds fun.

This week I'm finishing up final projects and prepping for exams - last week of school for...well, a week.
