Almost Packed and ready to go!!!

I am so excited. Except for a very few weekend camping trips we have not vacationed in 4 years. The last time was because we were moving cross country. We are leaving on Wednesday early morning and I won't be around for a month. Will miss you all. My brakes are getting fixed on my car and that is the last thing to do before we are ready to go.

I am so excited. We are stopping at the grand Canyon, Petrified Forest, Chattanooga tennesee, My brother I haven't seen for 8 years, Washington DC (smithsonian!!!!) relatives in NY, Mom in Mass and friends, then taking the northern route home.


See you all in a while!

Oooo oooo oooo, take pictures! Pleeeeeeaase. We can post the best one on the resource page. :) Need a photographer? I vollunteer to come alone! LOL. I haven't been to the Smithsonian in 10 years. Oh, I love that place. Pictures, pictures, pictures. Don't they have the General Lee there now in American Culture? get a pic od all 3 kids in front of that. And if that's not there (can't remember where the photo Lee was donated to) I guess something like the Space Shuttle will do.

Well, we're gonna miss you for the month you're gone. But think of all the wonderful stories you'll have to tell us when you come back! LOL. Have fun sweety. (and take pictures, hee hee)

Best Wishes Renee! I'll be particularly interested to hear how things went. I am doing almost the same thing NEXT year! Except I will be going south to north and then west. I was thinking of taking a month as well. I have NO idea how my son will take that. Our past experiences with long travel tells me he has a good day for every bad. I just hate the bad days because he can really be bad! Are you going to stop at the campgrounds? I've been wondering where I should stop and stay. I haven't exactly mapped it out yet but there are a LOT of places that I want to see.

Well, Magic Schoolbus is over. Need to go.
