Confirmed: I Can Plan A Getaway At Moment's Notice

In just a few short hours me, the two teenage boys and Jason will be off to St. Louis.  It's one of the most impromptu trips I've ever planned. 

Logan belongs to the city's Track & Field team and is competing this weekend for nationals in St. Louis.  I knew that some time ago.  What I didn't know is that he reeeaaaally wanted me to go.  It wasn't even for the reason that I didn't want to go in the first place but I didn't know how I'd be able to afford the trip, get a hotel booked, and get off work.  After a lot of praying, finagling, and budgeting I was able to get the trip planned in three short days. 

It's not a big whirlwind vacation but we're excited to do something different from the norm and watch Logan compete at what he does best.  Watch out St. Louis, here we come!

That's awesome that you pulled it off. Chris & I have pulled off weekends nearby (RI or NH) with a weeks notice or so, but those are only a short drive.....you rock.

That's impressive. I can't even plan an impromptu trip to the grocery store without falling to pieces. Good luck to your track star!

I use to do this a lot when my son was younger. We would decide we were going on a trip & sometimes the next day we were gone! I loved these trips & really miss taking them. It seems nowadays we are just to busy.
