Off to Florida and the Smokies



We leave tomorrow morning at 3:30am!!! Everybody here is extremely excited...it has made bedtime very difficult to say the least. Wes was so confused when we were packing the van, he thought we were leaving and shed many tears when he had to go back into the house and go to bed. This will be the first trip we take with our new Honda Odyssey. So far it's proving to be MUCH bigger than our last van. We have so much extra room in the trunk it looks like I must have forgotten something...and yet, we have everything! It is truly amazing!

So wish us luck as we begin our journey with 6 adults, 10 children, 8 boys and 2 girls all between the ages of 12 and 2. The first time we descend upon a McDonalds will be a like a tour bus unloading.

Anyone know how early Dunkin Donuts opens? It's not 3:30am is it?

Ooooh...I'm jealous! Have an awesome time. How fun to be going away with 2 other families! Be safe and have a GREAT trip!!! :)

Wow, sounds adventurous! I'll be eager to hear the stories and see pictures. I know we hit Dunkin Donuts first thing when we landed in Chicago last fall--but it was around 6:00am. Isn't it open 24 hours??
Happy trails!

Hit the Waffle House!! :-) Or the truck stops are great for coffee.

Have fun and we'll miss you. Tim's got a new pork chop marinade he wants to try on you guys. I will hold the baby in til y'all get home.

Wow. 3:30. Looks like Lampen Travel Style has worn off on you!!
