I Married Clark W. Griswold
The thing is, I didn't fully realize it until this morning. You see, we are going on our first "real" family vacation next week. We are driving down to San Antonio to go to Sea World. We'll be there three nights and Clark, I mean, Aaron, is obsessing over it. Last night, at dinner, he was talking about what time we would leave on Sunday morning. He knows I'm not going to want to bust my butt getting the kids up and out of here by 7 a.m. on a Sunday morning, but he was hinting at it. He kept saying "Well, not the crack of dawn or anything, but, you know, I'd like to get a full day in."
Today, I woke up to four emails from him (I get up at 6:45, if that tells you anything about his level of excitement). Each one was a different link to a fun and exciting activity in or around San Antonio. After all, Sea World is only one day and we have three whole days there (four if I don't completely ruin Sunday by sleeping until 8:00.)
His last email said, "Call me." I called him and he started going on and on about how awesome all these things are. Children's Museum, World of Wonder, and of course, the Alamo. He has it all planned. We'll do Sea World on Monday, Children's Museum Tuesday morning and the Alamo Tuesday afternoon. Then, on the way home Wednesday, we'll stop at the World of Wonder cave thingy and wear the kids out. Then they'll sleep and we'll have a quiet ride home. I cannot believe he has an itinerary.
I'm in awe. It's amazing what a man can accomplish when he's excited about something. And, to be honest, I'm kind of turned on by this show of initiative and determination. I'm thinking of putting on some Alamo booby tassles this evening and see what that gets me.
