My aunt came to visit
and I'm doing flips,
she says she is taking 
me on a road trip.

     What would you think if this wild, crazy vehicle pulled into your driveway?  Where would you like to go?  Are you taking a vacation trip this summer?  Where are you going?  Can you write a poem about that?


  1. Joy,
    If I were going with my aunt on a road trip in this RV, I'd set up a lemonade stand each night in the parks where we'd stay. I'd sell regular and pink lemonade with crazy straws under this canopy. This would earn me a little spending money.

    1. Linda,
      Thanks for playing along with my dream. I always love your ideas.

  2. Joy,
    Thanks for the compliment. You inspired my ideas with your cool posts about lemonade and a road trip. I loved the "flower power" on the RV.

    1. Thanks Linda,
      I drew a beach design and plan on trying a forest and a playground too.
