We are afraid that Camden has officially been brainwashed by the mouse! Tonight at supper we were discussing the fact that he had to miss his baseball game today. I jokingly said that today would have probably been the day that he hit his first home run. Claremarie sarcastically said, "yeah right." And then Camden said, "You never know...dreams do come true."
Everything is pretty much packed and the kids are wired with excitement. Doing my best to keep the expectations realistic while not "raining on their parade" so to speak. We have tried to give some basic guidelines such as: please don't kick the chair in front of you on the airplane, we will be doing A LOT of standing in line, you are going to get very hot and your feet will get very tired, no we aren't going to swim with manatees, yes we will get to see Mickey (and these are just Sam's questions :-). Both kids are very excited about flying and seeing the ocean for the first time, not to mention their week with the mouse. This is our first "real" vacation with the kids so we will see how it goes. I'm just praying that the whining will be minimal and that we will have an enjoyable week together as a family. Sam had an ankle/leg injury last weekend so hopefully it will hold up during all our travels. Claremarie's birthday is Monday so we have some special plans for that.
Since the first post about this was such a hit, here is a pic of the fully bloomed clematis. Actually I just wanted to practice posting from my phone before vacation. But, isn't it pretty? I do not have a green thumb and we are overrun with rabbits around here, so I am excited when anything blooms in my yard! Sent from my Verizon Wireless BlackBerry
