The Countdown is On....

 SIX DAYS until I am vacation bound!
I will be sitting on the beach with my toes in the sand and a drink in my hand!
I seriously can.not.wait.
I need this vacation badly.

Today I finished packing the kids bags.
It feels SO good to have that checked off the list.
Now I will focus on cleaning my house and packing for myself.
Luckily my husband packs for himself. :)

First, I packed for the Princess
then was Mr. Monkey's turn
and last was my Superhero
Next was packing the "entertainment" to keep them busy/happy during the car ride!

I big puffy heart the Fancy Nancy books, and this one is adorable.
Of course, you can never go wrong with stickers, barbies and baby dolls!  I love Monkey's dinosaur bag. (It's one of my favorite things.)
He loves Handy Manny, so I'm hoping that the book will hold his attention.
And, he got a new batman action figure b/c he has really been into those lately.Superhero loves to draw so I made sure to purchase plenty of paper and pencils to keep him occupied.
He also loves to read so I bought a few new books for the trip.
The Indiana Jones action figure will thrill him.
(His Daddy and Grandpa are going to take him to see that movie during vacation time.) ~~~
Last, I packed the beach towels and swim toys.

Basically, I have 5 days, 7 hours, 32 minutes and 8 seconds left until vacation time.
Can you tell that I am excited???

You need to get one of those countdown widgets and put on here. I so need a vacation too. My next one though will be supervising a bunch of teenagers at church camp. :0)

Amanda said...

I just love that holiday feeling!
My kids are looking forward to seeing the Indianna Jones move too.
Thats a great bag that youv'e got the towels in.

Wow, I'm impressed that you have packed all of your children's gear 5 days out.

Hopefully, now you can just focus on the excitement of getting away.

Can I just say how very impressed I am?!? Five days before vacation and you already have the kids packed! I always mean to do this, but always end up running around like a crazy woman at the last minute. Life would be so much easier if I managed to do it your way.

We love the Fancy Nancy series, as well!

You are amazing!!! Super-mom is a very accurate description of you :o)

Can't WAIT to see you guys Wednesday - I'll bring over all the camera stuff and the polka-dot bag, and the box of clothes. Sorry I didn't get back in town early enough to run it all by yesterday... Oh, well. You know me, I can never get away from my parents before 9 or 10 at night on Sundays.

Anyway, can't wait to see you in a couple of days here! Love ya!

Lisa said...

Wow--and I thought I was organized!
You are going to have an awesome trip (it is all in the planning afterall ;) )

Ahh_mazing....I am usually packing the morning of the trip (and that usually means a stop by Target to get those last minute items). I am trying to plan a fun vacation for the kids and I for the end of the summer. I'll start my packing before hand, looks like a better way to do things. :-)

Enjoy your trip. I am sure it will be wonderful.

Joy said...

Sounds like you have everything planned and ready to go!! I am jealous- while you are having fun- I will be packing! Enjoy!!

Amy said...

It sounds like you are ahead of the game! I hope you enjoy your vacation. =)
