Go West, Uncool

If you only read my blog feed or Facebook page or blog title (ye of ultra-short attention span), you were probably under the impression that, as usual, I was home last week.

Sucker!

Those who follow my Twitter feed knew that The Uncools actually took a trip West to explore this beautiful and diverse land of ours, to create memories that will last a lifetime, and to show our children what makes America the best dang country in the world without true universal health care! (Take that Bahrain … wherever the heck you are.)

So, just where did we go?

The Grand Canyon!grand-canyon-kids

Rainbow Bridge National Monument!rainbow-bridge-monument

Zion National Forest!zion-national-park

Las Vegas!downtown-las-vegas

Virgin, Utah!virgin-boobs

(OK – I Photoshopped that one a bit.)

It was, to quote my sarcastic Li’l Diva, an “amazing” trip that I will detail for you starting tomorrow on DadCentric and throughout next week right here. Meanwhile, allow me to tease you with the opening sentences of this postcard Excitable sent his best friend:postcard-crop-dad-blog

It reads:

“Currently we are heading back to Las Vegas but I’m going to tell you what we have done so far. First I puked in a Las Vegas airport toilet after a six hour flight. …”

Memories created; mission accomplished.

  3. Living that American Dream. That sometimes has to start with puking in a public bathroom.

  4. He's already puked in Vegas. That's the true Head Start Program!

    I remember my time in Vegas and accidentally hitting on a hooker. Ah, memories.

  6. This is awesome! My parents dragged us across the country (from Nashville to L.A.) when I was a kid, and it built ASSLOADS of character. I think.

    1. Zion was the best. I really dug Springdale, the little town next to it that we stayed at, too. My Love, she had some issues with creepy crawlies - that tale coming soon.

  8. Because nothing says childhood memories like puking in Vegas.

    Didn't you tell her the "What happens in Vegas" rule though? Is it safe to be writing it down as evidence???

  11. You had me laughing, because I have gotten migraines since I was about 13 years old which ended up having me puke on every single family vacation. It used to be a running gag (no pun intended) that whenever we discussed our vacations or went back to somewhere, someone would always say, "Oh yeah, Lorie barfed there."
    However, I have never been to Vegas, so your daughter has one up on me..... I have however barfed in Italy, Greece, and Turkey. =)

    1. It's the glue of relationships. Stinky, chunky glue.

  14. Looking forward to the creepy crawlies story! We stayed at the Desert Pearl Inn in Springdale. In the morning, the kids found a huge snail crawling along the sidewalk in front of our room. Not something we'd see at home!

    If you liked Rainbow Bridge, you should go to Arches someday.
