Is this Heaven...No, it's IOWA

Just so we can make this clear, this is Bean speaking. I am the guest blogger. We (Mippy, Mia, and I) drove to Iowa to visit Mia's brother and family. It was a lllooonnnngggg drive!!!! It was supposed to take 10 hours so it shouldn't have been too bad. Well, that wasn't exactly how it worked. We got stuck in traffic, and more traffic, and some more traffic. The GPS, named Stacy, told us that we were supposed to arrive at 5pm. We arrived at 6pm. When we finally arrived, all were awaiting to see us. We had a wonderful 6-minute dinner prepared by Mia's sister-in-law. The next morning the trio of cousins came over for the day and we went to the near-by park. We had a lot of fun. We were all sweaty by the time we were walking back, while the youngest of the trio was complaining she couldn't walk anymore. We all got back and we pounded down many glasses of water. The rest of the day, we did arts and crafts, played outside, and just had fun. When it came time to go to bed, we all layed down and were told a bedtime story by Mia's brother.

Ohh...and don't think I forgot. PENGUINS WON! PENGUINS WON-in Detroit, in front of Detroit's fans, and we beat Hossa!!!! Ha ha ha. If only you had all heard Mia screaming. People in other parts of the house thought there had been a robber and it scared the heck out of them. That goes to show just how different Pittsburgh fans are from other fans.

The next day, we went to the oldest of the trio's softball game. I never realized just how many girls play softball. It's a great sport. Afterwards, everyone came home and we all had a meal called Million Dollar Spaghetti. Boy, it's true-it's got to be worth atleast a million dollars.

Everyone have a great rest-of-the-weekend!!
PENGUINS WON!!!!! (And don't forget it!)

Well, it sounds like you all had a great time, Bean. The trip there maybe wasn't so great but all the fun later made up for it.

Yes, I heard Mia screaming all the way from Iowa. It was another nail biter but it was worth it in the end. Watched the victory parade on TV. 250,000 people still cheering.
We are the City of Champions.

Well, at least we found Mia and company. I feel the same way, Bean, I am glad they won in Detroit. Sounds like you are having a great time.

Those Pens were amazing. Even I watched them. Fun to see Bean post. Sounds like a fun vacation.

Great post, Bean!

Is Bean taking over? It does sound like you are having a good time. When does everyone come home?

Bean, I think you should hijack Mia's blog more often. You are quite entertaining. We heard Mia screaming and we're way out here in Portland. (Oregon, not Maine, but I bet they heard her there, too.) Then in case we couldn't hear her screaming, she called on the phone and screamed into the phone! Three times, I think.

That's okay BECAUSE WE LOVE THE PENS AND WE WERE SCREAMING, TOO. Tell her please to send two hats this time FOR NEXT YEAR!

Cathy said...

Has anyone heard from Mia? Did she make it home okay? Unusual not to have a post or a note that she got home okay.

Lori said...

I was wondering the same thing. Hope they made it back from the trip okay.

We're back from the trip. Everyone is okay! Mia has just been busy. I'll let her know she needs to blog!
