Vacation.... we're on vacation.

Whenever we go on vacation Dave sings and does this little dance.. I kid you not.

I'm on vacation! I'm on vacation (sung to the little diddy La cucaracha, la cucaracha)--whilst doing a little dance.

Well by the way do you know what the ACTUAL lyrics to that song are.. just a little tidbit of information for ya!

La cucaracha, la cucaracha    (the cockroach, the cock roach)
Ya no puede caminar             ( Now he can't go traveling)
Porque no tiene, porque le falta  (Because he doesnt have, because he lacks)
Marijuana que fumar.                 ( Marijuana to smoke)

Ya la murio la cucaracha    ( the cockroach just died)
Ya la lleven a enterrar       (and they carried him off to bury him)
Entre cuatro zopilotes         (among four buzzards)
Y un raton de sacristan.      (and the sexton's mouse.)

Okay... so now that you KNOW that!  ANYway, so Dave sings this little song and we head out on vacation.  This vacation went pretty darn well as far as preperation, packing, and the carrying out of the actual LEAVING ON SAID VACATION.  We  hit the road and everyone was in good moods, traffic was in our favor, all was well.

We opted to go through New Orleans as I have never in my life been... we checked to make sure they were not playing at the Super Dome-- they weren't and down I10 we headed.  As we got into town headed to the French Quarter we noticed little girls in short sparkling outfits and lots of batons... not a good sign!  The farther we got into the town the more orange blockade signs we saw.  We were one street away from Canal and realized that the parade MUST be close to starting because they werent allowing cars to turn left anymore.. so we hightaled it.  As we stopped at the next light two blocks down we realized that cars were reversing out of the intersection between US and Canal... As soon as our light turned green we got across the intersection... and barely made it out!  Whoo!

Anyway, the kids got to see a little and I get to say I have been there!  From there we headed to Pensacola...checked in at our hotel and went to eat at Steak and Shake--- yummo!
