Road Trip Quotes
Saturday, August 16, 2008

The last seven days have been a fun-filled whirlwind. From Texas to Oklahoma to Missouri to Arkansas and back to Missouri. We've been in the pool, in the river, in the lake, and at the amusement park. Whew.

Spending more than 20 hours in the van this week (with 8 more hours 'til we get back home, after a pit stop tonight in Tulsa), we've had lots of time for some good conversation.

Ryan: Mom, I'm STARVING.

Me
: Ryan, you are not 'starving'. You don't even know what 'starving' means.


Ryan
: Yes I do. It means you're hungry enough to eat your brother.


Better keep your head up Dylan.

Lauryn, our West Texas girl, is not used to the hilly, curvy roads of the Ozark Mountains. She let out a terrified shriek down every steep hill, and yelled at her Daddy to slow down. The boys, on the other hand, had their hands up in the air like they were riding a roller coaster, yelling "Faster Daddy!"

Jonathan: Boys, please stop pointing out all the big hills coming up. You're scaring Lauryn. Tell your sister she's going to be okay.

Dylan: [in a sappy sweet voice] It's okay Lauyrn...you won't fly out the window.

Ryan: [equally sappy] Yeah Lauryn...it's okay...you won't die.

Thanks guys. Real comforting.

I hope to be back to my normal posting soon. In the meantime, here's one picture from the trip: Jonathan dunking Ryan's hair in the icy, bitter cold waters of the White River, while I tickle his belly. Parenting at it's finest.
