Columbus Wrap-Up now with "Quinn and Colin Video Extravaganza!"

by CajunKate

So Bydee and I got home at about 12:30 Monday morning from Columbus. As we rolled out of town, the weather matched our shared mood. Boo-hoo! We did not want to leave!

Here are the top ten things I learned on our Columbus trip:
#10. Holiday Inn Express' breakfast bar is the shiznit.
#9. It is possible to gain ten pounds in five days.
#8. Schmidt's must figure out a way to ship their creampuffs.
#7. It's not easy to go from days with an 86 degree high temperature back to Louisiana where, on the night we returned, it was 86 degrees at 9:30 PM.
#6. A three year old who can do an eyebrow waggle is the most hilarious thing I've ever seen.
#5. All copies of
Scamper the Penguin should be torched immediately.
#4. A dad who buys his daughter a Garmin Nuvi, a portable GPS map system, is awesome because when his son takes the wrong exit, and his children end up on the way to Lexington, Kentucky, Garmin Nuvi will save their a**es by giving them new directions! Then his son will quit making fun of his daughter's Nuvi obsession, AND his kids will get to see the Bluegrass Parkway and a cool castle.

#3. I will forever regret not getting a picture of the billboard for a strip club that read "Big Jim's Boobie Bungalow- Exit NOW!"
#2. Dragging a laptop, cell phone, Garmin Nuvi, MP3 player, digital camera, and a video camera with you on a 1,034 mile journey is totally worth it!
#1. I want to see my nephews more often than once a year; therefore, I must devise a clever plan to spirit them away from their parents so that I may feast on their delicious cuteness EVERY DAY!

As promised, here's the "Quinn and Colin Video Extravaganza," which will totally back me up on my #1.

You are SO good!! But you know that don't ya? ;o) Thank you for everything! I loved the video extravaganza just as it was; however, Tim has a request. He wants the wrestling scene to have "Eye of The Tiger" in the background. Seriously, we both LOVE your work! We love you and Bydee so much. Thanks so very much for coming!
