We already knew that this day was going to be somewhat lame for the most part, as it consisted almost completely of driving, with no attraction stops. We listened to Agatha Christie’s The Body in the Library and looked for anything interesting in Georgia. Let me tell you this: Georgia is a big state with not a lot of roadside attractions (unless you count taking note of the various misspellings of the word “peanut”).
We stopped for lunch in Dublin at a Ruby Tuesday restaurant. Chris ate a buffalo burger, and the boys and I all had mini burgers (mine were turkey and came without the promised garlic mayo. Fie!). This lunch stop yielded most of the pictures of the day because we were all a little punchy and extremely bored.
From there it was more driving. We finished our book on CD and I napped for a while. At about 4, we arrived in Commerce, where my folks live. We stopped at my mom and dad’s house (dad is still out of the country). We chatted for a while and she showed us the things she and dad had brought back from his travels for work. After a while, she called my sister and we decided that we would go to dinner with my mom and meet up with my sister later on.
Accordingly, we drove down to the Longhorn Steakhouse. Dinner was good and fun and I had a margarita that was passable and French Onion Soup that was YUM. We dithered over dessert and decided that Mom and I would go buy something at Wal-Mart for everyone to share.
