Florida or Bust!

DVD player with lots and DVDs so we can create some sort of Disney-induced stupor among our children and receive only the sound of a movie blaring in our ears as sweet payment? Check.

Individual coloring books, individual sticker sheets, and crayons in little individual plastic bags so we can start the trip off in a non-combative sort of way? Check.

Copious amounts of junk food for snacking...because it's vacation and all? Check.
Sand toys, wagon to carry sand toys, towels, beach chairs, umbrella, and bouncy chair to carry to the beach so the girls can play for 20 minutes and declare that they want to head back to the pool? Check.

The 2 books that I intend to read while away? Check.

The 3 magazines that I will more than likely read instead? Check.
The pictures that are still waiting to be sent to grandparents that I fully intend to package up and send while we are away...but am only just taking them because it makes me feel better when I secretly know that I won't send them off until we get back home? Check.

Sunscreen that is intended to be sprayed on both arms for full effect? Check.

Aloe for that dang arm I seem to always forget? Check.

Camera to capture all of the kids' funny moments? Check. Burp cloths and countless outfits to change the "little spitter" into even if most of the pictures I take are of him/them/whatever are semi-nekkid? Check. We are headed to Marco Island after Nate's PT appointment in the morning. Jay has a wonderful meeting ("wonderful" meaning that the kids and I get to go with him and lounge by the beach and pool all day) down there for the rest of the week. Me loves these kinds of meetings! Be back in a few days.

Have fun. Again, great pictures. I love that Emma is trying to sit in the baby mug, and is that spit up coming out of Nate's mouth? You are amazing to have caught that in progress. I was always thrusting a burp cloth at Brenna's mouth to catch it before it got all over her and anything else near her.
