great big gulps

by all reasonable, reasonably smart accounts, we shouldn't have gone.  we should have just stayed at home.  after all, we really couldn't afford it right now.

but the thing is sometimes you just have to throw reason out the window.  sometimes you just have to pack a bag (or two...  or four...), jump in the car, and head out.

so that's what we did.

we scooped up my youngest sister and her sweetheart, loaded up the car, and took off for the weekend.

we didn't go terribly far.  we didn't go anyplace we hadn't been before.

but we went.

we went.

we didn't think about "shouldn't."

we didn't think about "later."

we just had fun.  lots of fun.  rock hall fun.  ohmygosh that's bob weir right there! fun.

we were just grateful to have a little summer adventure.

we just drank it all in,

then headed back home.

you capture

Cute play on words for Drink! And great post. Again, poetic and interesting and, oh my gosh, the pictures are amazing. I love the birds and the sky and the sunset and the interesting angles! Great post as usual.

Ditto everything Mary said. The pictures are awesome as always. Glad you threw caution to the wind and just went and had fun.
