Each time I return from a vacation I am reminded of the small things that matter the most. Small things like an extra blanket, a case of cold bottled water (we never buy bottled water), coloring books for the kids, and good cd's for those miles and miles of road that never seem to have good music. Some of these items we remembered for this trip and others we forgot.
I think I forgot more than I remembered to pack.
Then again, I was reminded of some new items to add to my list of Do Not Forgets for Next Trip. Things such as:
Make lots of silly faces.
Find a way to stay cool from the summer heat.
Stop and take lots of pictures.
You can never be clean enough or groomed just right.
Some things from home remain the same on vacation. There just is no escape.
There never seems to be enough food with three...um four boys.
Expect the unexpected.
Flowers are gorgeous in any setting.
Lastly, something I think we can all agree upon--You can't ever have too much toilet paper on hand.
The Arizonans must agree.
