Beach Bound

Tomorrow we are Beach Bound or Bust...we are headed down to the gulf for our annual family vacation at the Phoenix X (conveniently located next door to the Flora-Bama)! Jody and I opted to pack the car tonight in the cool 81 degree weather vs the projected 88 degree and isolated storm weather predicted for 3:30 tomorrow, plus we didn't have 2 extra helpers since we did it after they went to bed!
I was pretty proud of myself...I think I really cut back on the "necessities" for this trip! Both kids have been really looking forward to the beach all week. Sunday, Banks decided to make a grocery list - he would think of something he thought we needed, I would spelled it and he would write it down. Notice the circled item on the list: That would be beer...for his daddy of course! Wednesday night, they both excitedly brought down their suitcases. We noticed that Mary Reese's didn't look empty. When we unzipped it, this is what we discovered...

Every princess needs at least 6 pairs of shoes for a week at the beach! We will be pulling out after Jody and I put in a full day at the office. Hey, someone has to pay for the $3.89 per gallon gas to fill up the family truckster! The first and only stop will be another family tradition...Peach Park in Clanton, Alabama!!!

Next time he should try to spell the words on his own...to get ready for Kindergarten! Stretch them out for him and he can write the sounds he hears! I know you will love this comment!
Love, Auntie Stacey
