Packing...

Well, we head out for the beach tomorrow and I have yet to start packing. I did wake up this morning and start a load of laundry..good for me! Anyway, instead of starting the daunting task of packing, I decided to write a bit. Anything to procrastnate. Besides, we are going ot the beach for a week, how hard could it be to pack for a family of six to go to the beach for a week...HAHAHA..I wish it were as easy as suits and towels. I guess those days are over, the days of throwing our cares to the wind, tossing in a suit, towel and toothbrush and heading off to who knows where for who knows how long. Now it is...toys, pack n plays, clothes, booster seats, coloring activities, movies, food food and more food, sippy cups, camera, charger, 2 computers, bikes, scooters, helmets...(hey, I think this is helping me with my list :)) Anyway, that is just the start. Anyone going out of town with children understands and those without children can not even imagine all the S--- that goes along with a family vacation. I use the term vacation very lightly..remember we are taking all four kids with us. It will be fun to play with Daddy for the week, splash in the ocen, and have some good 2:4 time with the kiddos. Wish me luck, with the packing that is...

I was describing our up coming trip to the beach earlier this week and the woman I was talking to said, "Oh, that is not a vacation. That is a "family trip." What a great term! Hope you have a great family trip- looking forward to seeing you when we return from ours....
