Grandma and Grandpa await our arrival.
You can catch a nap in the car
Until we get there.
Climb aboard the plane, run the obstacle course,
Man the gun, pet the animals,
Bounce and splash and dance.
Guzzle lots of water to keep yourself cool.
Feast on hamburgers and hotdogs
With a tray of fries.
Watch the colored lights splash against the night sky.
Beware the boom, sizzle and pop.
Absorb the beauty.
Grandma and Grandpa await our departure.
You can rest your head in the bed
When we get home.
