This is totally off topic... but I figured I should come make a happy post <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"> My DH gets 2 weeks of leave starting the 28th to the 13th and the only plans we really had was going to the zoo once or twice (since that only costs us like 10 dollars). Well, I was talking to my mom tonight and she asked what our plans were and I told her we had wanted to go to Sea World (military gets free passes once a year) but we couldn't afford the gas and the hotel... so she offered to pay for gas!!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/joy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="joy"> So, we get to go!! Just a quick trip, leave in the morning and drive there, go to the hotel pool and dinner then the next day go to Sea World and drive home that night but I am SO excited!!!
