~165 miles for a Coca-Cola~



It wasn't the hotel,
or the pool,
or the Jacuzzi that got his attention. 
Not the breakfast buffet,
 or 3 days of playing against the toughest elite baseball teams.
It wasn't the lunch out with just mom,
or the big comfy beds with 4 pillows each,
or the pizza party after a victory.
It wasn't downloading new songs for an
"Indiana Playlist" on his iPod,
or hearing his mom sing 'Pontoon' over and over in the car.
It wasn't the 104 degree temperatures, or hail storms, or rain delays. 

You want to know what was worth the 165 mile drive this past weekend?

The look on Austin's face when he saw this touch screen 
Coca-Cola machine. 
He thought it was the bees-knees.
And when his little brother and dad drove in the next day,
we had to go back to show them.
It was just that cool.

Any drink you can imagine in any flavor you can think of. 
Austin went nuts about the Vanilla Coke. 
Derek tried the Raspberry Sprite. 
Dad went for the Orange Coke.
I opted for the Indiana Water... I wasn't disappointed.

Have you seen one of these new dispensers?

So funny. We encountered one of those here. It was the biggest hit. We too have had to tell everyone about it. Such fun! Glad the trip went well.

I have not seen this! But it looks like quite the entertainment. Sorry it's so hot there. It's in the 90's here!

Goodness! They look vintage and space age at the same time! No wonder he was smitten.

Isn't it amazing the things that get them revved up? I've heard tell of these, but haven't had the experience myself....My 18 year old thinks they pretty cool too.

Well, it really is a cool machine ya know! It reminds me of Back to the Future 2 when Marty goes into the cafe and he has to ask a digitized Ronald Reagan for a Pepsi and it pops up out of the counter. Ok, so maybe it's not that cool, but close enough really!
