The van was loaded by 1 PM, except for the electronic stuff and perishables.
Herself couldn't contain herself, so we had cake and prezzies at lunch (at the unheard of hour of 11). Much picture-taking ensued. Then, we had cake and prezzies at supper, too. I was able to put off the hotdogs (the requested birthday meal) until supper. Himself got too much cake, and went bonkers after supper (sorry, bro!) He then crashed into a little puddle of freshly-bathed boy at 8 PM, and is still zonked right now. I fully expect both of them to be bouncing up at any moment, since today is the Big Trip.
It looked like much fun was had yesterday. From all indications, much fun will be had today....once we get to the beach. Driving, not so much.
Gotta do a wee bit of websurfing - I checked out NASA on Friday, but the posted prices were, pardon the pun, astronomical. I want to see if they have any cheaper prices - we'll be pretty close to them, and I think both kids would love to go.
Also need to upload pictures of yesterday to the gallery.
