Trip to West "By God" Virginia

We took a little getaway trip to West Virginia prior to Easter with most of the family. (We missed the # 2 guy and gal because he had to work and she was out of town.)

As always, we enjoyed being able to get together, have some time to chill-(we call this “front porch sittin’), and have the traditional LOROBI’S Pizza night!

Whenever we make a trip “home”, it just wouldn’t be the perfect trip without our Lorobi’s Pizza!

When I went on the internet to try to search for some info on Lorobi’s, all I could find was several plain address listings and this review page. I was reading the review and agreeing totally with the statements and then I realized that the reviewer was our niece!

(Great review Melissa aka: greengoddess85-otherwise know as our niece). She is a real fan and has even taken frozen Lorboi’s home to Wisconsin in the past.

Teddy got to have his first Lorobi’s experience:

You can tell he is a true member of the family because he liked as much as everyone else does!!

We didn’t really do anything noteworthy on our trip but we definitely like having all the family members take time from their busy schedules to get together. We were glad that Guy # 3 and his gal could get away from school and get to come!

It is always a little crazy with all the dogs (5 at one point!), people to feed (19 at one point), and babies to watch (1 little Teddy Bear!) It was good seeing the relatives and catching up.

As a side note regarding the trip: the weather was really rainy and we had lots of tractor-tailer “mist” to deal with…not my idea of a good time.

I do give extra bonus points to the hubby because he let me listen to a book on tape while we were driving in. I gotta confess that it was a romance CD and it was a real enlightening experience for him. (I'd tell you the title to the CD but I'm not sure either one of us would live that down!!)
He said at one point that he thought the CD was really boring (we didn’t get to the “good” parts while he was listening-haha!). I was surprised that I didn’t hear more sarcastic remarks about the book from him.
I did have to chuckle though because he totally got lost in the relationships and asked a question about the heroine “Gabby”. I started explaining and he said, and I quote, “How in the world did you get all of that out of what we just listened to??”

Needless to say, I put him out of his misery and let him listen to his music shortly after that!!

It's good to finally have proof that we were there... normally in the WV pictures, or the "Weekend at the grandparent's" pictures, or the whatever pictures... we always seem to not show up in those pictures... so... it's good to have some proof of our existence in WV.

Jeff, I'm glad you didn't get left out. I didn't know you were feeling neglected!! Big boys somehow subtly get replaced by little babies in some areas. You are still my baby, but isn't our little baby a cutie?

It was something about British accented Pirates and upper class British accented socialites being one in the same family. So, I gather that all British speaking people are upper class pirates. And this is what she reads all the time. Seems like a waste of time to me!

All I've gotta say is that piece of pizza went through alot for that picture... but I think Teddy's Uncle Jeff still wants to give him some lemons!

I admit that I am the mystery Lorobi's critic! I only wish that I had been in WV with you and that shelby could have had her first piece of lorobi's with teddy! My mom will be carting some pizza to FL for me this month. As for the book on CD, i salute you uncle Tom for sitting and listening with little comment. No way would that fly in our car!

I miss you all! Love Melisa
