Leaving on a Jet Plane

Seems like I'm on song theme kick lately. Very unlike me, since I am musically, lyrically, and harmonically challenged. Tone deaf doesn't even come close and I can't remember a lyric to save myself. I love John Denver, but I have to say I really like this version of this song, too. Not the Ben Affleck rendition, or all the Armageddon references (sorry...didn't care for that movie), but just her interpretation.

After a day of spinning, vietnamese food (spring rolls good, chicken salad, not so much), cleaning and packing, we leave out for San Francisco tomorrow. I'm really excited about this little trip. Last year we did the Grand Canyon, Monument Valley, Scottsdale to visit family, Carlsbad Caverns and DROVE all the way. I don't remember the exact mileage count, but it was mucho time in the car. With 2 kids. In the heat. Nowhere to stop for hundreds of miles. So, we're flying to California, spending 9 days in the Bay area (haven't been there in 7 years, since we moved away after our brief stint living there back in our wilder, crazier days) then heading to Yosemite for 5 days. We've never been there and I'm really excited to check it out.

Plus, the prospect of getting out of all this rain, heat and humidity is very enticing. I swear there was a mosquito on my leg today that could've been mistaken for a hummingbird. I hope the house is still above water when we get back. Stay tuned here for Bay Area Trip Journal 2007.
