Watching from the Portable Potty!
On Friday, I was given tickets to see Sarah Palin at a rally. At the last minute, I decided to go and take the kids out of school to come, too. My son has been studying the Bill of Rights, voting and elections at school. So I thought what better way to make it all come alive than to be part of a political rally for a President/Vice-President nominee.
Of course , my son was very intrigued with the secret service men, metal detectors and the sharp shooters on the rooftops.
We were there very early but still it was jammed!!! This man told me to move up and get those kids to the front to see..."They are the future!" How right he was!
Of course, on a funny note, Mrs. Type A personality I am! We get there very early...stand there over an hour and half and that was after the line past the metal detectors...Palin gets on stage...starts to talk! WHAT DO I HEAR???? My middle child saying "I have to go to the bathroom!".
OH my...it was like the parting of the red sea...we had to squeeze ourselves from the front through hundreds of people to get to the porta potty in the BACK with an umbrella stroller!!! Then after, my son asks "Can't we go back to our spot?"
