Chris and I did the only reasonable thing we could on this vacation. We left the kids with his family and headed to Tucson for two nights.
No trip to Tucson is complete without the world famous tour of the University of Arizona. It started at the bookstore with a large purchase of gear for the kids. Two U of A swimming and diving shirts and one soccer shirt (although I have wisely talked Sarah into playing soccer at my school – UNCW, someone needs to be near the beach). We are now of course broke.
Next stop on our tour 4th avenue. Which is apparently where all the “hip and trendy” hang out. Translation, great area to buy a bong, get a tattoo or a body piercing. “Luckily” we spent all of our money at the bookstore. The bars were understandably empty, it was only 6:30. I am sure things were hopping later in the night, this is just an assumption because hopping is well past my bed time.
We then did a drive by tour of the fascinating places my husband lived. I thought the places had been condemned. Twenty years ago. Kids still lived there.
I have come to the realization that I have turned into a fuddy duddy. I am absolutely petrified about send my girls off to college. I hope they are smart enough not to buy bongs although it didn’t seem to hurt Phelps.
I also did the math and the year Sophie goes to college I can move straight into a 55 plus community. Nice.
