but it turns out we jones' can have fun with or without you bono!
we took advantage of the opportunity to be alone together ("alone together," is my favorite oxymoron. this too would have been a great title for this post. bono should write a song with the lyrics, "alone together is my favorite oxymoron" ).
we headed off to the quaint little towns of jamestown, sonora, twain harte, and pinecrest. michael pretended to enjoy antique shopping (hmmm, i love him), we shared good food, stayed at a charming bed & breakfast, kayaked on a serene lake, had uninterrupted conversation, and took in a movie (robin hood, staring russel crow. very good if you've got free childcare, and bono is out of commission).
we're looking forward to 2011, seeing U2 in concert, and ANOTHER getaway!
What band would you most like to see in concert?
