Vay-cay 2011

And we are off.... like a herd of turtles.  Vacation 2011 is in full effect and I am no less than extremely READY!  I expect us to look a lot like the Griswold's as we travel down to Orange Beach, AL.  

Clark: Burn some dust here. Eat my rubber.
Rusty Griswold: Dad, I think you mean burn rubber and eat my dust.
Clark: Whatever, Russ. Whatever.

I don't think I've forgotten anything.  

I think I brought everything...including the blender.  What is a vacation without your Jimmy Buffet Margaritaville blender?  That vacation my friends, doesn't exist and something I wish to be no part of.  Seriously though.  I think I did a good job of packing the car up.  If it weren't for the highchair, blender, and pack-n-play I could have used only half of our 1 acre back seat.

Maybe one day I'll become a good kid packer.  The only thing in here for me is the red suitcase and the drinky drink bottle between the highchair and blender.  The rest is Hill's, even the's to make him and Hannah snocones.  Chip hasn't put his stuff in the car yet, but I'm sure the way he packs it will all fit in the glove box.

The dryer debacle didn't slow me down from Vacation 2011 either.  Our dryer went out today as I was washing the final necessities for the trip.  Thank goodness for the internet and a thrifty hubby there was only a 45 minute lull in the laundry.  We are back in action and I will safely be unplugging the dryer when we leave so we have no fire hazards.  No offense babe, I trust your madd dryer fixing skillz.  Yet, while my 4 legged babies are here with their keeper I risk nothing.

So, we are off...  If you see this Hoss on the roadway - - move on outta the way!  This Mama is on a mission!

And since we are meeting up with my dad, step mom and niece I expect us to have some pretty hilarious adventures along the way.  Bring on the Griswold Hawkins Family Vacation!

I leave you with my favorite Cousin Eddie quote from Christmas Vacation: "After that long drive, we could use a little private time together. Honey, why don't you run and get the kid's things. And, don't forget the rubber sheets and the gerbils."
