If you own a GPS, you've heard that word more than a few times! ;)

Keith's birthday is coming up soon, and he's been wanting a GPS. Bass Pro Shops had them on sale last weekend. We decided to get one as Keith's b-day/Father's Day gift. (Now he can use his Father's Day gift to navigate us to my Mother's Day Gift. Hee hee!)
When Keith goes on business, he's always trying to navigate his way around a strange city. Well, Pittsburgh isn't strange anymore, but Pittsburgh is tricky! The roads are on different levels. On a map, they appear to connect. In reality, you'll be driving along on one road, and the road you want to turn on is a zillion feet below you! Last time Keith was there, he called me and asked me to look up some directions for him on Mapquest because he couldn't get back to his hotel. Hopefully the GPS will make his next trip a little easier.
Grandma & Papa came along (drove, actually) with us, and after purchasing the GPS, we headed up to New Buffalo, MI to eat at Redemak's. I haven't been there in years. We used to go there in high school. (Uh, did you know that, Mom & Dad? My friends & I would say we were going out for dinner. We did. In Michigan.)
So Alex had his first trip to Michigan...all 60 minutes of it! ;)
By the way, don't try to stop at a grocery store with the GPS still going. All those turns in the parking lot make the GPS lady (Suzy, according to Keith) really angry. ;) "RECALCULATING!!!!!!!"

HAHA! Tony and I think it would be fun to have a smarth-mouthed GPS lady. We want her to scream, "What are you doing?!" "Would you turn around already?!" Hehe. You're going to love the GPS. You'll wonder how you managed life without it. :-)
