Off on a Trip

We are off on "vacation", off in Anniston, Alabama, to visit my husband's relatives (his Mom's side of the family) and celebrate his parent's 50th wedding anniversary.

Originally, we planned this trip thinking that we would get spend time with all his relatives (his Aunt Doreen lives here, well, in Birmingham... his Aunt Shelby lives in Atlanta, and his Aunt Pansy is coming down from Virginia for the big party... plus all the cousins) however, things have not gone as planned.

Seems most of the relatives won't be here until late Saturday OR won't arrive until Saturday. I guess that's the same, huh? Anyway, Aunt Doreen had to go to Atlanta for some event with her family and won't be back to Alabama until Saturday night. Aunt Pansy won't arrive until sometime Saturday, and the same for Aunt Shelby. We just heard from Bugman's parents and THEY aren't even here yet! They were supposed to leave yesterday but had "too much to do" and so couldn't leave until today. We talked about an hour ago and they were about 8 hours away.

So here we are... the only ones here. Bugman and kids are down at the hotel pool getting wet. I am about to go finish unloading the van (which we just bought... did I mention that? Guess not... more about that later.) Tomorrow we are hoping to go to Talledega Raceway (Nascar!) and the Motorsports Hall of Fame. Maybe some relatives will arrive by then??
