Yet more Maddie-isms....

We are on the way to the funeral home last night (2 hours drive) And we are about 1 1/2 hours into it (maybe a little bit more). and we get the dreaded question from Maddie..."Are we there yet?" Kyle said "nope, not yet." Maddie says "Oh yes we are! Read that sign!" (pointing to a sign on the road)" It says YEP! YOU'RE HERE!"

Let me start by prefacing that there is a joke here in our house about Parades following my husband. Last year when our bestest (yes I homeschool) friends Spike and Lori came down and camped with us for the weekend we took them around downtown Madison. We went for lunch at The Downtowner (ok SUPER YUMMY). For some reason, Kyle, Spike, and some of the kids were outside. Lori and I had taken the rest to the potty. Keep in mind, this was an average weekend...NOTHING going on. When Lori and I came out of the bathroom we went outside and there sat the kids with handfuls of candy. I said "What happened?" Kyle said" I dunno! I was just sitting here and a parade went by!LOL" no kidding. They were just sitting there then all of a sudden a couple floats went by on the street throwing candy lol. So now back to the story...

We are now leaving the said funeral home and we are seeing flashing lights. There were police and firetrucks everywhere. Keep in mind it is a Thursday night. Kyle says "Its a parade I tell ya! They follow me everywhere!" Sure enough we get up there and there are people everywhere..for what? A PARADE! LOL We turn down various side streets trying to avoid it when we hear Maddie yelling from hte back "I WANT TO GO!" I said "Babe we can't go we have to get home. Maddie replies" Well Put some gas in my butt and let me over there!" LOLOL

We thought there was going to be a parade as people were sitting in lawn chairs by the road when we came by.
