vacation planning stress

We leave soon for our first real vacation. We have gone out of town twice before  over night but have always stayed with family and ate at familys house. This is the first time we have had to deal with hotels, resturaunts, ect. It is so stressful trying to play everything, make sure we have enough clothes, a few toys, tooth brushes, and all the other stuff. I never realized really how much went in to a vacation.

I SO miss the days when I was a kid and would go on vacations with my grandparents(they took us all over) all I had to worry about was packing my clothes and showing up. lol It was so much easier.

I definatly plan on doing that! We arebringing our camera and our video camera to make sure we get lots of pictures. Our kids have never been to the ocean before so we are excited on taking them. Plus the place we are taking the,, my grandparents used to have a house so I spent a lot of time down there growing up, but haven't been back in over 10 years, so I am so excited to see it all again.

We always use lists. Everyone makes their own list and checks it over.
