Vacation Pleasures

Our bags are packed,

The mail has been forwarded,

The lawn is mowed,

The dog has been boarded.


All appliances are unplugged

And the house is secure.

I walked through the rooms

One more time to be sure.


The car’s filled with gas,

The oil has been checked,

Everyone’s gone to potty,

And now we’re all set.


With maps in hand

And smiles on all faces

We pull out of the drive

Ready to see interesting places.


The anticipation we have for our four hour trek,

Falls to our feet when we hear from the back,

“I’m thirsty.”, “I’m hungry.”, and “Are we there yet?”
