So, I was getting ready tonight to drive to Wal-Mart to buy some last minute items for our trip. One of the things I needed to buy was new shorts for Blaine. Because despite the fact we have been planning this trip for almost two YEARS, do you know when he informed me that he needed new shorts??? This morning.
Of course he did.
But that's really alright because I needed to buy snacks and drinks for the van, and pick up some travel toiletries (blah blah)
Here's our van as I headed out to Wal-Mart, all gassed up and ready to be loaded with suitcases:
It's such a promising photo, isn't it? Brimming with hope and anticipation for a fun family vacation ..... driving half way cross the country, sing-alongs, the license plate game .... ahhhh, good times.
What's that funny looking scrape on the luggage carrier???
Ohhhhhhhhhh, THAT would be from where I tried to drive into the garage with the luggage carrier on top of the van tonight.
Because I'm a MORON.
Yep, vacation's off to a great start.
All the suitcases are packed, the snacks and drinks are purchased, ice chest is ready to go. Assuming I can go the next ten hours without burning down my house, stepping on a scorpion, or ripping my hand off in an unfortunate Magic Bullet incident, I think we're good to go.
