Our Vacation

The time has finally come to be leaving for vacation.  Abigail and Josiah are so excited and so are we.  Please pray for us.  We have a long car ride ahead of us.   For the past six months I have been collecting something for their prize bag that will hopefully keep them entertained on the trip down.  We are going to be in the car 10 hours the first day.   We will take a timer and set it for 60 minutes, and when each 60 minutes are up Abigail will hand me a ticket.  This allows her and Josiah to get something from the bag.  I choose for her though because there is a method to the madness!  I tried to keep candy to a minimum.  Just a few fun and different things.

Here are some of the things in the bag:

For Abigail who is 6 years old

small handmade chalkboard and colorful chalk
colorful pipe cleaners
new first reader books
coloring books
ring pop
kids national geographic
puzzle buzz from Highlights
glow in the dark sword
game tin of hangman
bendaroos (walmart had these in small packets)
kaleidoscope
silly puddy
small packet of jelly belly (Cold Stone Ice Cream Flavors)
light up yo yo
a big lollipop

For Josiah who is 3 years old:

small handmade chalkboard and colorful chalk
colorful pipe cleaners
coloring books
ring pop
glow in the dark sword
color wonder color explosion
animal sticker book
silly puddy
light up yo yo
a big lollipop
small characters from looney toons, mickey, Yo Gabba gabba,
little cars
several character books like mickey, elmo etc.
bendy critters, like lizards etc.
magna doodle (old one but held back a while)
bunny peg game (like the game on the tables at Cracker Barrel) He likes moving those around.  I realize the pieces might be everywhere in 5 min. but it is still 5 min. of contentment from Josiah.

Here is a link to Travis’ post on his shopping experience with Josiah.  It is cute.  Travis bought me a gift for our tenth anniversary and tried to keep it a secret, but children cannot.  I am excited to receive it though.  Travis made reservations at a Wolfe Gang Puck restaurant at Downtown Disney and he will give me the gift there.  I am so excited!!!
