You know how in Bridget Jones' Diary she always calls a long weekend a mini-break? I love that. Anyway, we are heading out on a little mini-break this weekend! It is all very last minute really. Nick's mom and step-dad are heading to North Carolina for a night, then over to South Carolina to visit with Nick's grandma and other family. They told us about the trip, and since we haven't taken Henry to see his Great-Mawmaw since Thanksgiving, we sorta just invited ourselves along :) Family is allowed to do that, right?
So after work today we are packing up their car and heading to a resort in North Carolina. A resort with gambling. Which somehow strikes me as funny. That I am taking my one year old for a mini-break to a casino. But you know, you gotta teach them about how "money won is twice as sweet as money earned". Okay, I admit it, that's a quote from the movie The Color of Money. I haven't even seen that movie, I just googled gambling quotes. We have been to casinos like five times in our entire lives. So...stick a "sucker" name tag on us and send us off to the poker tables! Or more likely, then nickle slots. It's going to be great!
PS. We do know that children aren't allowed in the actual casino, so we don't really expect to do much gambling. We are honestly tagging along to see he leaves changing in the mountains and to eat some of Mawmaw's lasagna. We are so utterly lame.
PSS. Don't worry ICLW folks, I did extra commenting the last couple of days to make sure I got my quota in before we hit the road!
