Hit the Road Jack

This here family is hittin' the road tomorrow. So if you happen to be up at the --crack of dawn tomorrow morning and are already reading this, then you can think of us. We will all be piled in to our little black highlander stacked high with suitcases, an assortment of strollers, highchairs, diapers and all manner of strange and unusual things you must bring when taking a baby and three-year-old away from home for three weeks, one of which will include seaside camping.

Hence tomorrow, September 16th, 2008, officially commences our first family vacation ever. Five years coming, we are finally doing it and I must admit that I have a mingling of feeling about shirking all of our responsibilities for three weeks. The original plan was for a moderate two, but due to uncontrollable circumstances we have been forced to extend our trip by an extra week. I'm definitely not complaining, but suffice it to say, I have some slight trepidations about leaving my house to the mercy of whatever spider happens to come its way... worry wart!

I originally planned to use this post to say a temporary goodbye to all of you, my readers, but my husband balked at the thought of not being able to read my innermost thoughts on the internet for three weeks and insisted that we document our little trip. So, it looks like you may be getting some updates from the road and a catalog of daily events every once in a while.

Stay tuned... The Escalante adventure continues and you don't want to miss it!
