In 2012, we surprised the kids (and ourselves) with a trip to Florida. I planned this trip 3 weeks before we left for a week. Who does that? I do that...I do that more often than you would think is possible. :) *just a note...we live in California--so a last minute trip across the country is a tad bit crazy.
Prior to leaving, I packed a bag with a SMASH book, pens, scraps of paper, my Polaroid PoGo, and adhesive. I totally thought I was going to scrapbook while vacationing...I was so wrong ha ha ha...it only added to the weight of my carry-on. :/
