Road Trip - Part One

Sorry it's taken me so long to do this post.  The momma has been "busy" whatever that means.  She really needs to get her priorities in order.  Me then everything else!

So, last Friday the momma came home from work and had Aunt Vikki and Ernie with her.  Now this was most unusual.  Momma doesn't usually bring peoples home from work with her.  While I ate my dinner, momma loaded our bags into the car and got me ready to leave.  

Before I knew it we were on the road.  Now from Indiana to Ohio, I was not a happy pug.  See, I'm not of fond of being in the back seat of the car. I've gotten used to the car seat, but being shuttled to the back seat was not on my happy list.  Then as if being in the back wasn't bad enough, she stuck me behind Aunt Vikki so I couldn't see out the windshield!! How Rude!!

For most of the next three hours, I voice my displeasure at the seating arrangements.  I made sure momma knew this mistake would not be happening on the rest of the trip!  When we got to Columbus, we stopped to eat at place called the Claddagh.  We sat on the patio right outside where the band was playing.  We had a good time.  Every time people came out to smoke or talk on their phones, Ernie and I got lovings!!  People just love the pug!!!

There was a giant King in front of the park where we parked the car.  Momma and Aunt Vikki thought it was pretty funny.  Silly mommas!!

This is the same place where the momma got a parking ticket for her expired meter.  I told her that fine was NOT coming out my treat money!

Next thing I knew there was a huge bus making all kinds of noise across the street.  

I let them know that was not ok!

After dinner we headed to the hotel.  Momma and Aunt Vikki got into a fight with Madge (GPS).  There was a lot of construction in Columbus and she wanted them to turn on roads that weren't really roads.  Aunt Vikki finally broke out her phone and played navigator.  

After what felt like a bazillion hours, we finally got to the hotel. My first hotel stay!!  I was so excited!!

Pretty sure this was Ernie's first hotel stay as well.  He was worried about his momma escaping through the bathroom.  He wouldn't leave that spot until she came out!!

 I told momma we needed to get to bed so we could get up early and get on the road. 

Any time woman!!

The next morning, we were up bright and sort of early.  Momma didn't seem to worried about the time, but I was ready!!

Feed me so we can go!!!

Do I have to do it myself?!?!?

Finally momma got the bags packed and me ready to go!

 FINALLY!!!  LET"S GO!!!!!

Momma says we can't bore everyone with one really ginormous post.  So we'll post part two of our great adventure tomorrow!!

Tata for now . . . . 

Lotsa Love!!!

Hi Mia,
This post was worth the wait! What a great story so far...I'm on the edge of my seat for the next installment!
PS. I don't blame you voicing your displeasure in the car. Those seating arrangements are unfortunately all too familiar. And I let my mom and dad know that I'm not happy with it either!

You left me high and dry there! I can't wait for the next installment. Your adventure looks super fun. Ernie had glow eyes in the picture. Funny.

My nutty mom loves giant odd statues and things too. I don't get it.

What fun, Mia! I love hotels even though Momma is not a fan. It sounds like you had a great time hanging out with Ernie but please tell your momma that pugs belong in the front seat. Sheesh! Don't these mommas know anything?

Can't wait to read more about your road trip!
