As the Wonder Pets would say, “We’re going to the beach, the beach, the beach.” For his birthday, Pierce got a dvd player from Paul and me, and dvd’s from everyone, so he’ll have movies to watch if he gets too bored on the way there. I think he’ll enjoy the drive, though. Dean’s very good in the car and I’m guessing he’ll sleep most of the way. And Gab, of course, won’t be a problem. She’s got her dvd player, too, though, if the trip gets too long.
We usually try to take it easy and not rush down there. We have a couple usual stops and that really helps break up the 7-hr-drive. All in all it’s fun. Hopefully we have everything we’ll need and I didn’t forget anything major, like one of the kids.
