Kids say the darndest things

Last night, at dinner, I asked the kids where they wanted to go on vacation:

Me: "We're thinking of Gatlinburg, Tennessee. What do you guys think?"

Gage: "Ewww. That's all country there! I hate country music!"

Me: "No it's not! Besides, you don't have to listen to the music."

Gage: "How about California?"

Me: "What are you going to do in California?"

Gage: "They have lots of roller coasters there."

Me: "Oh. Ok."

Gage: "Italy! Let's go to Italy!"

Me: "What?! What are you going to do in Italy?"

Gage: "It's Italy, Mom!"

Well, yeah. Wandering around Italy sounds great to me, but to a 13-year old boy? His sister agreed that Italy sounded like fun, too. Who knew?
