leaving on jet plane (and a chance to win a Blackberry Playbook)

I should be packing right now. Getting ready for our trip.

Probably not sitting in my underwear in front of of the computer.

But, here I am.

With a list of things to pack.

Kids that want to crawl the walls in excitement.

Fear that I’ll forget something or leave something undone.

But this awaits…


and this….

Castaway Cay

and for Nathaniel? THIS.

Disney Food

Lots and lots of that.

This is the first time our family has gone on a vacation or a trip anywhere that didn’t involve visiting relatives.

We love our relatives.

It’s time for this trip.

After a stroke. Peyton’s cancer. 18 months of separation. Moving. Two more strokes.

We sort of need this trip.


Would you like to win a Blackberry Playbook? Yeah, this!

We’re giving one away for Autism Awareness Month!!
