The 12 Days of Disney Packing

About a decade ago (maybe 8 months ago), I started planning that quintessential family vacation - the family voyage to Walt Disney World. Well, the time has come and we are on our way first thing Sunday morning. We are hoping the vacation resembles more Norman Rockwell than Clark Griswald - but who knows and who cares. We will only save the pictures where we are all smiling. In a couple of years we won't remember the trip anyhow. From the pictures, we will assume we had fun.

And since preparing for a trip to Disney is only slightly less complicated than launching the space shuttle, to the tune of the Twelve Days of Christmas - Here is my rendition of the Twelve Days of Disney Packing.

After Twelve Day of Packing, our suitcase held for us.

12 Bathing Suits
11 Toys for the Plane
10 Different Reservations
9 Extra Changes for Jaley (she's still potty training)
8 Princess T-Shirts
7 Bags of Snacks
6 Pairs of Sandals
5 Golden Visas (all sure to be maxed before our return)
4 Cans of Sunscreen
3 Walkie Talkies
2 Princess Costumes
AND A Guide Book Bigger than a Pear Tree

Wish us well on our voyage. For the record, I am posting a before picture. You can determine how well we fair when I post the after pictures in a couple of weeks.


That is life in the stroller lane. Lots of love.
