Tut, Tut

This week has been nuts. I cannot wait for the weekend.

It starts tomorrow. We're travelling up to visit RFB's brother and his partner, north of Philly. On Saturday, we'll troop on down to Philadelphia for the King Tut Exhibit, dinner on a boat, and who knows what else.

RFB became a Tut fanatic when she toured the original exhibition in the 70's, as a teenager. When this new Tutstravaganza was announced, more than a year ago, she reserved tickets faster than one would have thought humanly possible.

We'll wind up driving home on Father's Day. RFB and I had already decided to stop between Eastern PA and home for a nice Father's Day lunch. Not junk at a roadside fast food joint. We'd get a cupcake with a candle.

Last night, Monkeyboy realized that travelling to Uncle L. and Uncle B.'s house tomorrow will mean missing Field Day and the last full day of school tomorrow. He's got a summer birthday, so he's also missing the "let's-acknowledge-all-the-Summer-birthday-kids-at-once party", too. This bummed him out.

I told him about the Father's day plan his mom and I had worked out. I invited him to join me. Now we're getting two cupcakes with candles at lunch on Sunday. Maybe even three.

Enjoy the weekend and the trip. I understand that the exhibit is pretty interesting and there is much to be seen and learned.

I, myself, hated the "let's acknowledge the summer birthdays thing", it was always so patronizing.

I love the idea of dinner on a boat. Some friends and I went to Apache Junction, Arizona one time and we went on a dinner boat that sailed around a lake that was surrounded by mountains. Loved it. Have a great time and a very Happy Father's Day! Oh and happy summer birthday to your son!

Seems to me the Tut exhibit should be available to go to on Mother's Day instead....cause there are lots of Mummies there :)

Have a good road trip and Happy Daddio's Day!

Born in Arizona, moved to Babylonia: King Tut

If there is one ridiculous song that might get "Llama Llama Duck" out of my head, this just might be it.

It sounds like such a great weekend. I hope Monkeyboy is okay with missing out. the older they get, the harder it is to take them away from their world.

Visiting a King Tut exhibit sounds really cool.
Poor Monkeyboy missing his last bruhaha of the school year. I am sure that the trip will make up for it.
