Fat Bottom Girl Said What

When my ass talks, people listen.

Worth Every Penny

Gas money for a 7 hour drive to and from Colorado and a case of tired ass- $130.00

Accommodations for a 2 day stay, and food including fried pickles and tasty treats from a little French bakery  – $420.00

1/2 Day White Water Rafting Trip for 2 on the Arkansas River complete with a totally unplanned swim in said river – $125.00

Look on my son’s face as he tells me this is the most awesome trip ever and that he wants to do it again tomorrow – Priceless

  1. It sounds like you had a great vacation!

  2. The river has been running fast this year. I had a blast when I did the trip after I moved out here. Loved it!!

  3. Wonderful!! So great to take the time (and money!) to do these kinds of trips when your kids will really enjoy them – what a great memory you’ll both have forever…

    Sounds like a great time. Nothing beats a great vacation with family.

    • So had to please a 13 year old, so it made me feel really good to finally have picked something he really liked! Lol

      • You can score extra points if the activity yields a small wound. Nothing gushing or needing stitches, just a nice little bloodletting he can show off to his buddies at school in conjunction with an epic tale of survival.

        “Dude, check it out. I fell off a MOUNTAIN!”

        Translation: I fell four feet off trail and spilled my Reese’s Pieces.

        “Check my scar, it’s sick. I bled for a [bleep]ing HOUR!”

        Translation: My Mom made me hold a rolled up square of toilet paper against my leg for an hour in the car so she wouldn’t have to scrub two drops of blood out of the carpeting.

        “The Rockies are extreme, man, you can DIE! I almost DIED!”

        Translation: They made me sit down until I stopped whimpering but then they found a butterfly suture and a spare can of Redbull and I bounced back to the car like a Golden Retriever puppy.

        It’s all in the presentation.

      • It was the best! Will definitely be doing it again. And he actually fell at Garden of the Gods and got all scuffed up. Lol

      • Like hockey goals and dating, if it didn’t leave a mark, it didn’t happen.

      • Like that sentiment!

  5. Colorado ‘effin rocks, but then I’m a bit biased, having done a blissful 12-year stint there.

    Lately, I’ve been describing the remoteness to people, how you can drive for an hour or so out of Denver and find a dozen different places to pull over, slip on a backpack, and hike in holy silence without another living soul in sight for six straight hours. Nature’s Xanax, baby. How I miss it. (sigh)

    *finishes off the zinfandel.
