Almost Vacation Time!

Well this Saturday is our yard sale and I am hoping for decent weather and big sales. I have so much stuff to get rid of, so I hope a lot of it moves.

We have our summer mini-vacation all planned out. We are for sure going to Como Zoo on 7/19, and then we decided on the Children's Museum for 7/20. We hit a few snags on the way- such as friends of ours who we were going to stay with are now going to be out of town. Luckily, I was able to find a really nice hotel for $79/night and they have a great breakfast, huge pool, and a playground. Doesn't get much better than that! The Children's Museum is even going to be free since it happens to be the 3rd Sunday- so they advise no strollers. Yikes. Olivia will do well, but that means Matt and I take turns carrying Jackson in the Snugli. I don't know that I like that so much. Plus, whoever isn't carrying Jackson is carrying the diaper bag backpack thing. Double yikes. So we'll see how that goes. Matt doesn't like crowds or large amounts of people, so if it's out of control- we'll do something else or come home early. I could maybe stop at the Mall of America to shop at Archiver's. Or IKEA!!! Oh.. maybe we'll do that. :) We'll see!

So I think it's going to be a lot of fun. Olivia likes our "trips" but this will be Jackson's longest car ride. We're a little nervous because of his reflux- he normally screams the entire car ride around town- so we're driving almost two hours on the way there, and then almost 3 hours on the way back (depending on traffic). I HOPE it goes well. Keep your fingers crossed.

Other than that, not much else is new. I got some picutres developed so we'll see if they turned out good. I've posted some cute ones on here already. I'll go through and see if there are any other fun ones and maybe post later.
