on tour

I was talking to my brother the other day and I was tellling him how tired I was. Not mentally tired but physically tired. I needed a nap that day.

Then it dawned on me. More than any other year, this body has logged some miles on it. I'm not really one that travels a lot but I do like to travel. I began to think of where I've been over these last 9 months...


I was back and forth between Minneapolis and Atlanta for 6 months for work.

South Carolina

Me and the fam drove to South Carolina to visit my homegirl, Jimmell to celebrate her 35th birthday during the Memorial Day weekend

Kameron on the Slip N Slide

Washington, DC

Me and the fam went to DC to visit Russ and Lisa for a few days. It was Brandon's first flight. Surprisingly, he did very well on the plane. We had a ball in DC.

Washington Monument

BRANDON is chillin with Russ and Lisa's lil angels Allison and Dylan

Me and the younginz at the Washington Monument

Disney World
Me and the fam drove to Orlando to visit Mickey Mouse for the Labor Day weekend. We also attended the MEAC/SWAC Challenge football game as my alma mater, South Carolina State University defeated Grambling

Magic Kingdom

Indianapolis, IN
Mrs12 and I went to Indianapolis to check out the Circle City Classic.

Lucas Oil Stadium

In a sense...I have been on tour. LOL. Nevertheless, I feel blessed to be able to travel...especially in this economy.
The tour is NOT over. There are upcoming trips to my hometown (Florence, SC...can't wait), NYC, and LA for my 37th bday celebration. Who knows...the tour might end up in YOUR town. If you see me in the streets, buy me a drink! LMAO!!!

What a great year! I'm sure the kiddos enjoyed the traveling, and you have tons of memories now :)

LOL@ Allison's 'I need a vacation' tee. Too cute. She's a doll! Um, daddy, I think that was BRANDON chilling with Russ's children, not Kameron. Get it right (sign of old age)

I liked this post. Refreshing to see families getting outside of what's familiar to them. Loves it!

@ Queen
LOL!!! Can't believe that I wrote Kameron when it should have been Brandon. Ooops. hahahah

Allison is a sweetie. If you spend 10 mins with her, you'll want a daughter.

I won't hold it against that you were already in my area and we didn't meet up. But the next time your in the DMV, I got two drinks and a dance floor waiting for you!

Yeah, you've been hitting the miles up. Are you sure these aren't the Clinton years, cause your paper don't seem to be affected at all.

I'm trying to get back to tour speed next year. It's been a slow year for me.

I'm on award tour, with Muhammed, my man...

I'm trying to be like you on the traveling game. There's a lot of this country I haven't seen yet. I need to get to it.

If I see you in the streets of the A, I got you on a birthday drink!

Man you have been putting in your time on the go huh? LA as in Louisiana? Word?!

If we see you in the streets buy you a drink huh? You are too much! Well...I was hoping some magical way I could get to San Francisco for Halloween but I don't think that's going to happen!

I want to visit San Diego before the end of the year! Who knows I might add that to my November goals!

@ Rich
Other than the trip to South Carolina, I didn't plan any of these trips. The wife did. I have NO idea how much we spent. LOL

@ Rashan
Cool I'm with that! One day we're gonna link up here in the A

@ Ms Moore
You know my motto...ballin on a budget! LOL

@ Sincerly GO
