Packing & Looking Back

Today is a day for finishing our packing, picking up our MiniVan rental, & picking up Audrey this afternoon.

I also have on my list to make a paper chain for Rusty to help count the miles. Our first stop Monday night will be in Memphis, & Tuesday we'll drive the rest of the way to Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg. We'll make 4 paper for the Memphis leg of the trip, another for the Pigeon Forge leg, and then two for the return trip home.

Our daily drive will be approximately 450 miles (give or take a few), so we'll split the chain into 50 mile increments. As on our Hawaii flight, hopefully the paper chain countdown will help with the "Are we there yet?" questions!

So while we're waiting for our Monday departure, I thought I'd post some fun stuff from our family vacation last summer. We took all 3 kids to Playa del Carmen for a week & had a blast at our first all-inclusive vacation. We had a really cool surprise when we were upgraded to the Presidential Suite upon arrival. It was huge & beautiful and we decided that we probably would never go back to the same hotel, because how could we go back to a regular room since we knew what else was there?!?

As much as Audrey says she hates the beach, she sure had fun in Playa del Carmen!
