My Favorite Vacation Moments

I have been very blessed in my life with the opportunities my parents gave me to travel.  We may not have had the biggest house or drove the most expensive car, but I will tell you we TRAVELED!  I love vacations and I pray Im able to take my son as many places as I have been. My husband never got to travel much, so I love to live through him when he gets to experience a new place.  My SIL was telling me this hilarious story about a scorpion on her pillow while she was at Gatlinburg. Now, she did not think it was funny one bit, but it made me think I should share some of my favorite funny memories. I think I will share one a day, or it will be just too long a post.
So here are my 11 favorite funny vacation memories in no particular order: 
Why 11 you might ask...Because I thought of more than 10, but less than 20. 

1.  Tampa, FL(2007)--We are at the Tampa airport. My grandfather who has had many stints put into his heart sets off the alarms as he walks through the scanning devices.  They decide to pull him over to the side and "hand-scan" him.  He is standing there 70 something years old, with no shoes on and his hands up in the air.  He is SO mad at this point, I guess he just snapped. He begins to yell, "Yeah, thats right, IM A TERRORIST, IM A TERRORIST." My parents and my husband and I are standing at the side yelling   "SHUT UP GRANDPA! THEY WILL ARREST YOU!"  They must get this all the time, because they actually let us all go.

  1. This is hysterical! Poor James. I love it!

    BTW, that scorpion was TERRIFYING, even at the size of a dime. But I admit, it's funny now. Not so much at the time. Thanks for sharing this!
