Ready to go!

Finally, our vacation has arrived and we're ready to go. We leave at 3:40pm tomorrow and as you can image, the children are super excited!

Our bags are packed and waiting for the last few items to go in. Our Passports, International Driving Permit and flight itinerary are all waiting to go in the hand luggage. Still not sure how I'm going to carry all this as we treck across London to transfer from Heathrow to Gatwick - but somehow I'm sure we'll manage!

We've got some interesting items in our luggage due to the duration of this vacation (7 weeks). We've even managed to pack 2 life vests for the children as we'll be spending so much time on Grandma's boat!

The children have their Game Boys ready and all set with new batteries. Although I usually try to limit their gameboy time I think this rule will be broken once we get on the plane! We're the proud owners of a brand new stylish pink Flip Video Camcorder. I'm usually told off when I get back from vacation for not taking enough video. My excuse is always the same - the camera is too big for my purse - won't get away with that excuse this year! I'll even try to post some video online while we're away!

Please wish us a safe flight. Hope you're having a great summer too!
