It would have been the mid 90s...I would have been in high school, Stuart in college, and Roger in junior high. It was Spring Break and my parents decided we needed to spend it together on vacation. We, or I should say they, decided we would spend some time in Wimberley and San Antonio which were only a couple of hours away. To make the "forced family time" more bearable there were fun little activities planned...shopping at the outlet mall, tickets to see the Spurs play, etc. (I was a teenager and loved basketball and shopping equally, okay not equally, I loved basketball more!)
My dad was in charge of our accommodations and was extremely pleased with himself when he found a great deal on a cabin in Wimberley. We would be driving distances to all the attractions, but still able to enjoy the quiet.
I remember pulling up in the Suburban to our cabin and looking at my brothers. Cabin didn't quite describe it...double wide trailer is a better description. We also found out that my dad had forgone the extra $10.00, so there was no TV. When we stepped inside I discovered that I would be sleeping on the cot that was located on the enclosed patio. I think the icing on the cake was when my younger brother, the country music buff, looked at my mom and began to sing:
So I made her the queen of my double wide trailerI'll spare you of the rest of this Sammy Kershaw "classic", but I cannot hear without thinking of my mom and that trip! By the end of the week were all laughing about our vacation...wait, we are still laughing all the years later.
With the polyester curtains and the redwood deck...
So, what's your most memorable vacation? Maybe next time I'll share about the time that Roger busted out in "Trashy Women" at Stuart and Michelle's rehearsal for their wedding!
