I'm feeling a bit discombobulated today. Things are starting to run together as we're preparing to leave on vacation soon, and I'm hoping everything gets taken care of. Earlier this week, Mike's work car broke down, to the point that the company isn't going to replace it, and he is flying to Chicago (hi Katie) next Thursday to pick up his new car and drive it back. Plus Abie's volleyball games start next week. Plus we're leaving on vacation next week. Oy! See what I mean by life happening? Life is happening a lot around here lately :)
Last week, when life wasn't so busy happening, I was able to put together a couple of vacation bags for the girls. We're driving to Orlando (hi Tammy) and I know they're going to get bored of DVDs, tables, iPods and DSI's at some point. So I stumbled across some great finds in the dollar aisle at Michael's.
I picked up travel journals, car bingo, magnetic checkers, magnetic tic tac toe, sleep masks and fun tissues. I remember many a car trip with my sister, passing the time with car bingo and magnetic checkers. I was SO excited to find these :)
I wrapped all of these up and placed everything in the bags. As the girls get bored, or restless, they can reach in and open up one of the fun little presents. Not anything big, but something a little fun to help pass the time.
Are you guys taking any road trips this year? I'm SO excited for ours. We're going to have a blast and I can't wait to go!!! In the meantime, we have a nice relaxing Memorial Day weekend planned. I hope you have a great Friday/weekend and I'll see you soon! Thanks for stopping by!
