"We'll All Go"

I always tease Scott that when he dies, I am going to have "We'll All Go" engraved on his headstone. It's his motto. He says it everyday at least once. Example...
Me: "I have to run to the store"
Scott: "We'll all go"
And we all load up and go. To the store. To the gas station. To the bank. You get the picture...we all go. Everywhere. Together. He's the epitome of "family man". In fact this summer, he has only put 62 miles on his truck. Cause, well, "we all go" my car. I'm not complaining, I've seen plenty of dads/husbands who don't share his obsession love of family and I realize how lucky we are to have him. Anyway, yesterday we had a "conversation" that I found very amusing...this was sooooo Scott Smallie and I just had to share it.

Setting the scene: Scott is laying on the couch and I am in leather chair thumbing through a catalog
Scott: I think this fall, we should go to the lake for a weekend. Just me and you and stay in a private cabin somewhere....we could early Christmas shop, go to the movies, out to eat at restaurants... ones without kids menus and food in paper bags.

Me: Um hmmm, sounds nice
(Three minutes pass)

Scott: Well, actually, we could probably just leave Saturday morning and come home early Sunday so we're not gone too long

Me: Uh huh (rolling my eyes)

(One minute passes)

Scott: I guess we can bring Cate with us but we'll have to stay in a resort that has an indoor pool and maybe water park. You could go shopping on Saturday while Cate and I hang out in the waterpark..then we could go out for pizza that night.

Me: hhmmmmm (waiting for the bomb to drop)

(four minutes pass but he's not going to let me down)

*Cue Beethovens 5th Symphony* dun dun dun dun

Scott: Actually, the boys would love the lake too. And we (as in he not me) would hate to leave them behind. We could leave after school on a Friday, and come home Sunday. Rent a condo on the lake so we could fish all day (goodbye dreams of shopping), then go out to eat (goodbye dreams of "elegant lake-side dining") and ride go-carts/mini golf all night (goodbye dreams of a no-kids, no fighting, peaceful weekend).

Me: *deep sigh*

Scott: Great it's all decided (say it with me)* WE'LL ALL GO *

Two weeks ago...our first night out without the kids since September. I'm desperate for an invitation to a destination wedding where kids aren't invited!!
