This summer marks two trips for our little family. Pretty good, since we've gone nowhere for the past 5 years. We're going with the kids to Colorado in two weeks, for my sister-in-law's picturesque mountain wedding. Then in July, to Wyoming for another friend's wedding. That trip will just be me and the hubs. Two very different trips, although the destinations are in near proximity to each other. Relatively speaking.
I'm starting to think ahead to these trips. We've got lodging planned. And mostly the itinerary is taken up by wedding stuff. So it's thinking about packing that I'm doing now. Packing myself and the kids for 5 days of fun. I've got to plan ahead for that. The strategic doing of the laundry, the digging out of the bags. I'm excited, but I'm not excited. Six hours one day, 4 the next...in a car with a toddler boy who does well for about 90 minutes. Oh my.
Wish us luck!
