The excitement is mounting at our house. Kate can't even fall asleep thinking about it. We have spent the weekend packing, cleaning, and preparing for it. Monday we'll be waking up early for it. It's finally here...our BEACH trip.

Friday I went to the library. What could be better to read on the beach than my childhood favorite, Island of the Blue Dolphins. I also checked out Life of Pi for Brandon, although I'm tempted to read it again too. And how about Harry Potter and Roald Dahl's Witches on audio-CD for some listening excitement in the car.

I bought enough FOOD at Wmart to last us a month (in case we serendipitously get stranded there)

We also purchased our first TENT.

The house is CLEAN. (by my standards)

I did all the LAUNDRY, our swimwear is packed, along with some sweatshirts for around the campfire.

The CAR is filled it with gas and the oil changed.

We're ready to get our fill of sand and sun.

Would this be your idea of a vacation? No TV, no computer, no phone, no shower, no make-up, no school, no housework?

Have fun! i am glad your house is clean. That makes the vacation worth it when you come home to a clean house.

It actually does kind of sound fun! At least you don't have to worry about germs in a hotel room.

Have fun and hopefully the beach will live up to your standards!

Bury BD in the sand for me.

That sounds exciting, but I still don't know where you're going! Have fun!

We love the beach. May I enjoy your vacation vicariously? Can you pack me in your suitcase?
