Slice2012 14 of 31 Packing

We are almost packed.  The kids bags are packed in the extra storage on top of the van.   The Sam's club box of goldfish and the X-large bag of peanut m&m's are at arms reach of the kids. And the blankets and pillows are ready on each seat to keep us comfy for the 18 hour car ride we begin tomorrow afternoon.  We talked about what we all have planned to read, (Matt: Toys Go Out,  Jack: Wonder, Joey : The Battle of Jericho, Joe : 11/22/63 and Me: Wonder, The Alchemist, lots of online blog reading and maybe I'll finish Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet)  so books will be ready and of course the ipods and ipad will come in handy to keep the kids entertained with games and a movie or 2.

Whew.   Kids are ready, now it is time to finish laundry and pack myself ( so much to do and so little time).  I hate late packing nights but all worth it for VACATION!!

I first misread that the kids were packed in the extra storage on top of the van, so of course, I knew I must have missed something vital! We have a lot of the same books in our TBR piles. Enjoy your vacation!

I can't sleep the night before leaving on a trip, I hope you can. That's a lot of together time in the car. Be safe and sleep well!

Have a great trip! Enjoy the beach! Our break is the week after ours- somehow I managed to luck out and get jury duty!
