"DESTIN"ation Non-Vacation Part One

We're Ba-aaack.  (said in a mocking Poltergeist II voice)
We had a great time during our "DESTIN"ation Non-Vacation.  In my last post I may have made it sound like it was a vacation.  Actually this was a work trip through and through.

Work Trip Part One:
Mill Visit
Monroeville, Alabama

Matt had a business meeting at GP Cellulose (don't tell Matt but I programmed this as "GP Cellulite" in my 'GP'S when I dropped him off.  (The littlest things amuse me.))
 There's my Matt (Daddy) off to talk to the mill about working with them in the future.
(fast forward:  they asked for a proposal after the meeting!  Go Matt!)
Once we dropped Matt off at work we did the only other thing you can do in Monroeville, Alabama.  We visited the Old Courthouse Museum.
This was the courthouse they re-created in Hollywood to film "To Kill a Mockingbird."  Turns out Harper Lee (the author of To Kill a Mockingbird) grew up here in Monroeville, Alabama.

I thought this was pretty cool.  I even told Lauren and Tyler to try to remember this because one day they would read the book and be moved by it.  They blinked their eyes at me and ran into the next room ready to explore.

PS.  Not only did Harper Lee grow up in Monroeville, Alabama but so did Truman Capote, you know, the one who wrote Breakfast at Tiffany's.  While I was there I thought about writing a novel myself.

Don't forget about your favorite littlest brother when you pen that bestseller!
