Yes, that's right, PocoDOS...meaning our second trip up to God's country, the Pocono Mountains. This time our travel partners were other members of the extended Vileation Nation...meaning Kevin's family! We had a terrific weekend, absolutely wonderful. Here it is in bullet form:
- Thursday: Pick up Casey and Chris (the Oklahoma City Viles) at the airport and walk around the Inner Harbor. Stumble upon a FABULOUS Brazilian restaurant and eat like we'd never seen food before. Finish the evening by grocery shopping, eating ice cream, and letting Casey and Kevin get to the business of Guitar Hero. (Pictured below are: Casey and Chris, Brian and Kristin (the Atlanta Viles), Mark and Sharon (the St. Louis Hasemans), and the authors of this blog)
- Friday: Enjoy a leisurely start to the day by baking cookies and sending Casey to Dunkin' Donuts for the obligatory caffeine injection. Kevin transports Luther to Dogtopia. We drive to Albrightsville, PA where we meet the rest of the Vileation Nation. Enjoy a tremendous pasta and meatball dinner courtesy of Chris and then wind down with what else but Guitar Hero.
- Saturday: Begin the day with a pancake breakfast, then walk off the pancake breakfast. Put on our team gear (check out the pictures to understand!) and head off to the fields for some softball action. Come home (kids went swimming), watch the Sandlot, eat more, play Trivial Pursuit, celebrate Mom and Dad Vile (40 years of marital bliss!), and receive our t-shirts for our big photo the next day! Thank you, Sharon! Also, several people topped off the evening with Guitar Hero. HAPPY 40TH ANNIVERSARY, MOM AND DAD VILE!!!
- Sunday: Wake up early and begin the big process of getting a Vileation Nation photo. Accomplish goal and head home to get Luther. Grill out with Casey and Chris, then drop them at the airport. Finish the day by going to bed while it was still light out, we were so tired. So as you can see, it was a wonderful weekend! And thank you for your prayers if you prayed that the baby would stay inside for the big trip, it's still in there!
