Our budget summer vacation, Day 1

It's a budget year. Seems like it's always a budget year, huh?

We drove seven hours from NYC to Lexington, Virginia, making stops at Arby's and Cracker Barrel. If I didn't know better I'd say the exact same fifty old people were at Cracker Barrel the last time we visited one; it was like that Jim Carrey movie, "The Truman Show."

We pulled into the Sleep Inn in Lexington at 7pm, took a quick dip in the pool, then drove into town for dinner at a local cafe, where we were the last patrons at 8:15.

Not sure how she pulled this off, but Jennifer managed to squeeze in a trip to the local WalMart for "necessities" at 9:30.

So...not as exciting as a vacation in the Bahamas, perhaps. (But how would we know?)
