The Road Trip to End All Road Trips

Katie & I were watching "Glee" last night, and I started laughing when Sue Sylvester claimed to have hung out at Studio 54 with Truman Capote and the puppet "Madam".  Katie wasn't familiar with the ever fabulous Madam, so she looked her up:
That, in turn, led us to plan the perfect storm of a road trip!  I agreed to visit the horribly frightening Center for Puppetry Arts in Atlanta, GA, but insisted that Katie had to visit TWO of my choices in exchange (after all, puppets are the most frightening things in this world).

So...our road trip will commence in Bellevue, WA with a visit to

We'll then fly to Atlanta for the Puppet Museum,

Then finish up our trip in Fredericksburg, VA, where we will visit

Civil War Life - The Soldier's Museum

 This museum is located in a strip mall in F-burg, tucked in between a convenience store and a Bob Evans.

 

Holla!  Pack your bags Katie!  The road is calling...

lol, you and Tate can join us, I'm pretty sure Katie will ditch me and head to Bell Square if I ever actually try to make her go in this museum.

Laurie said...

no, just reruns. I think the new season starts in 2 weeks. Sure you don't want to fly us to our museums Lis?

Katie said...

yeah this will be simultaneously the best and worst trip known to man... i think it's on my anti-bucket list actually :)

You know you will murdered at the doll museum, so the road trip shall be short lived.

i will make the trip to the civil war life museum since i drive past it everyday. i keep telling myself i will go there just to say i went, but then i think how boring it will be and keep on driving.

Cara said...

which do you think is scarier..a puppet museum or a clown museum?

Laurie said...

It's a toss-up as to which would be scarier. We saw a clown at Pig-out & he was terrifying. I am determined to visit that museum next time I go to VA. Though it's too cheesy to even have a website!

Puppets, clowns, mimes , midgets - all the same
