Leave-ing... On a Jet Plane!

That's right, my friends.  After a last minute change of plans, we have decided to FLY to Florida with the kids.  

While I am extremely happy about this new development (I believe my exact words to Nick were: "I'd rather have 3 hours of screaming on a plane than 20+ hours of screaming in the car."), it has added a whole new level of complexity to the trip.  Packing? For a family of four with two small children? For 8 days?  C-R-A-Z-Y.  It probably doesn't help that I am a natural-born over-packer.

It also probably doesn't help that I seem to have an unrealistic impression of what 50 lbs actually feels like.

Alas, our bags are packed, we're headed to stay with the in-laws tonight, and then, bright and early tomorrow morning, we depart for the Happiest Place on Earth!

I think I just might burst with excitement before we even get there.

Good call on flying. My guess is that your kids will do amazingly well on the plane. I'm still jealous, by the way! Hope you guys have so much fun, though. And I am fully expecting DAILY bloggy updates. :)
