We’re off…

Thanks to everyone who took the time to leave a comment, email or tweet me with ideas for keeping the kiddos busy on our long trip down south. We’re set!

San Diego, here we come!

Here is what we have on the agenda:

  • After 4 hours in the car, we’ll stop tonight at Grandpa and Grandma’s. Then, church and lunch with them tomorrow.
  • After driving another 235 miles, tomorrow, we’ll arrive at our final destination.
  • Our very first visit to LegoLand and the Sea Life Aquarium will be on Monday. I think I’m about as excited as the kiddos!
  • We’ll spend some time at the beach and Balboa Park. The ocean is my absolute favorite place to be, even if it is a whole lot of work with little ones! And, of course the Park is amazing!
  • There will be a fun day at the San Diego ZooAnother favorite destination. Hey, every day in October kids under 11 are free Wanna meet us there?
  • We get to visit with some old friends, and meet some Twitter pals and Bloggin’ buddies. You know we can’t wait to see you, Julia! Oh, and Jen, Sugar, and Tonya – thrilled to get to meet you!
  • Hopefully we can enjoy some R and R… Well, as much as is possible with six kiddos around.
  • Then another stop at Grandpa and Grandma’s on the way back.

Sounds like quite a bit to cram in to one week, doesn’t it? Oh, but it will all be so much fun!

I will try to post a picture here and there while we are gone, but I will be sure to take lots of pictures and video to bombard you with upon our return.

I do have lots of great guests lined up for all of next week, so don’t be a stranger around here…. Please be sure to give my wonderful guests some comment love, and make them feel welcome, would you?
