Sammy makes the grade; we head to NH

By K.J. Cardinal

While the driving range and car wash marked a great start to my April Vacation, Sammy definitely topped me on Friday afternoon when she got home from school.

When Sammy comes home from school she always brings in the mail from the mailbox out front. She came in and dropped it all on the table and then saw that her report card came in.

As you can see with the photo above, Sammy got an A, three A- and a B+....nearly straight As. You can clearly tell that living with me has rubbed off on Sammy academically :)

We were so fired up about the report card and Angie getting out of work a little early that we decided to head up to Farmington last night. We headed out around 5:30 and of course ran into a bunch of traffic.

We decided to make the most of the delay and stopped to have some dinner. Is there a better way to celebrate the start of vacation than the Tewksbury Applebee's? I doubt it.

Dinner was the typical Applebee's fare, but it was a first for Anna as she opted for the boneless buffalo wings and a Miller Lite (see left). Changing her next diaper wasn't too pleasant to say the least.

After dinner, the traffic had cleared out and we motored right up to Farmington. Meme and Papa were psyched to see Anna, even though she was a tired girl. With so much going on and so much attention, Anna was able to stay up until 10:30ish. I'm assuming she knew she was on vacation and could sleep in today if she wanted.

Last night, Aunt Kate even canceled her plans to go to the movies so she could hang out with us. Thanks Kater! As you can see, Anna definitely loves her Aunt Kate.

Today we're heading to Tiff & Pete's to see Natalie (and Andrew, of course) and then we're off to Steele Hill. Tomorrow I am going to go golfing in the morning and then to Rick Wolf's first-ever ACT race at Lee Speedway. What a vacation.
