Did I Say Something About A Gnome?

I was looking for a particular picture on my camera this morning when I realized I still hadn't downloaded all of the pictures of my vacation yet. And that, of course, meant that I still hadn't made good on my promise to post about what a good time my gnome had on his travels. Shame on me. Really, the gnome had an excellent time, particularly when other people came up to him and commented about how lucky he was that we remembered to bring him because they had REALLY wanted to kidnap their neighbors' gnome to bring along with them, but for whatever reason or another, didn't do it. (Yes, that really happened. In Niagara Falls of all places.)

Anyway, I'm sure the Gnome would have reminded me to post this sooner, but I still haven't unpacked him yet. But without further ado, here is the Gnome on Vacation:

Don't let their small stature fool you. Gnomes are notorious for overpacking.

Gnomes in the know always fly Continental, for the ease of their advance online check-in.

Taking a moment to stretch his legs, the Gnome begins to wonder how much longer he'll have to wait before the in-flight movie begins.

Sometimes you just need a time out.

And sometimes, the reason you need a time out is because what you REALLY need is a nap.

Having successfully made it to Rochester, the Gnome realizes he needs to pick up a few things from the store.

Being a considerate house guest, the Gnome decides to make dinner one night. Since McMama is hopeless with a chicken breast, he figures he'll show her how it's REALLY done.

After picking up his luggage, the Gnome decides to stop at Bob Evans for some breakfast.

En route to lunch, the Gnome encounters construction. Thankfully, it does not cause too much of a delay.

Mmmm....homemade macaroni and cheese.

Of course, no trip to New York is complete without the requisite trip to Dunkin Donuts.

7-4-2006 2-46-13 PM
The Gnome decides to put his diet on hold in favor of some excellent ice cream from Papa Jack's. He's big on the sprinkles.

Wistfully watching the boats pass by, the Gnome contents himself by feeding the ducks at the lake.

But the Gnome's favorite part of his trip? Was the day we took him to Niagara Falls.

7-10-2006 11-30-44 AM
Being afraid of heights, the Gnome decided to pass on walking out onto the big platform overlooking the American Falls.

7-10-2006 11-35-39 AM
He's in the US! No, wait! He's in Canada! No, wait! He's in two places at once!

7-10-2006 11-45-09 AM
Checking out one of the gardens around the Falls, the Gnome feels right at home.

7-10-2006 12-48-40 PM
Not wanting to muss his hair, the Gnome is grateful for the slickers provided for his Maid of the Mist tour.

The Gnome contemplates taking home a souvenir of his time away from home. What a great vacation...!

P.S. Shut up about my blog.
