|On the Road Again... Just Can't Wait to Get on the Road Again...|
Our family recently got back from such a trip. We drove across the country until we found ourselves in the state of Illinois. That is several states away from us and required three long days of driving EACH WAY. That is a total of 6 days of blissful travel in case you are counting. The days in the car really weren't that bad. We tried to visit interesting sights along the way and we all made memories to last a life time.
One such memory came about due to a movie the kids were talking about called,"The Best Two Years". The movie takes place in The Netherlands and has a joke about someone asking for sliced bread. Only instead of asking for sliced bread, the man asks for circumcised bread since the two words sound awfully alike in Dutch.

Chance's older brother asked about the joke and we told him what it meant. He blushed a little and then said,"Oh, so that is why they are all laughing!"
Chance did not hear our explanation of the joke since he was in the back of the car and there was lots of extra noise at the time.
So, we told Chance's brother who was sitting in the middle seat to tell Chance what the joke was about.
His brothers eyes got big and he said something like,"What? I don't want to have to explain it to him! That's embarrassing!"
We made him do it anyway. Chance could not hear us, not when trying to tell him details like a joke.
A light went on in Chance's eyes as he got the joke and he laughed.
You just never know what you might learn about while on a cross country road trip with the family.
