The Road Less Traveled...


Uh....does anyone know where that is? Anyone? Because the Michelson family has NO. IDEA.

We are off again, this time in a southernly direction. We are taking off in a couple of hours to head down to the Los Angeles region. No, not to go to the Staples Center to say fairwell to
Michael Jackson. We are checking out a factory and dropping off a mattress at UCLA. David was calculating the drive time yesterday and figured we could spend anywhere from 8 hours to 13 hours in the car for the entire trip depending on traffic. And, uh, that doesn't include stopping to feed this little munchkin. (At least there is a meal at Buffalo Wild Wings in my future!)

We will return on Wednesday night and then will head up Thursday afternoon to Palo Alto for an install at Stanford. We'll stay the night there on Friday and then
will leave on Saturday to spend our ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY in Monterey/Carmel. I have never been to that area, so I am super excited. Plus, it's our ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY!

We come home on Sunday and Olivia and I leave again on Wednesday to go to Arizona to visit Nana and Poppy for a few days before we head to Atlanta to visit Uncle Ryan.

If my calculations are correct, we'll have spent more of the month of July away than at home.

When I told Olivia that we would be road trippin' once again, she said:

WHHHAAAATTTTTT??

I'm exhausted just reading that! You guys are quite the travellers. Stay safe and enjoy your trips.

Have so much fun and I hope your travels are uneventful- in the good way!!! We'll definitely be thinking of you on the 11th... and remembering all that yummy wine we drank a year ago together!

Olivia's theme song should be Willie Nelson's "On the Road Again"!!! You need to get that song and start playing it for her to get her geared up and ready to go......on the road again!!! I can't wait till that road leads to her Nana and Poppy's house.

Oh Amanda, you're just too good of a person. I vote that you just stay home, let your husband do all the work, and spend lots of his money while he's gone. That's my method and LOOK, we've been happily married almost six years.

But then again, you did mention B-dubs...I'd probably be going too. Oh, they're putting one up just a few minutes from my house. Wanna come over? My treat.

Jill - I would be there in a heartbeat...not just for B-Dubs, but for the Beef Dip Sandwich @ Houston's and a trip to Buy Buy Baby! Oh yeah, and to kick it with you! Haha, we could stalk Jon and Kate minus Jon and 8. You know the bodyguard's office is in Rockville. Kinda makes you go hmmmm.
