'Twas the Day Before Vacation

and all through the house everyone was sleeping, including Suzanne's spouse.
The suitcases were out and resting with care, in hopes that the packing fairy soon would be there...

Ok, Ok.  I promise this is the last post about the Fall Break Griswold Road trip.  I can almost guarantee it.
We leave tomorrow, that's right tomorrow, and will spend at least thirteen glorious hours in the car the first day and four or five'ish hours on the second day.

My little people still have no clue, they don't even know that today is their last day of school.  Not even sure at this point how we are going to explain WHY they are not at school.  I think we've landed on that we are going with the Mister on a business trip and spending some extra family time together.  Sounds legit, right?

We decided at the last minute to do costumes for the adults as well as the kids.  That means of course that we are ordering and shipping them to our resort so we can have for the first ever family Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party.  After failed attempts to find a costume for me that was not "sassy".  I have enough sass that I don't need it in my costume, plus I think I might look ridiculous.  We have settled on an old stand-by ...don't laugh.

Should be interesting.  I'm a little scared, a tutu is way more forgiving than a body suit.  We might decide to not to it.  But you never know when a Super Suit would come in handy.  

I would be lying if I didn't tell you I was all sorts of anxious about pulling off this surprise.  I cannot tell you how much time I have spent planning everything.  It's been borderline obsessive (or maybe not so borderline, tough call).  The last time I planned our trip out like this the reaction was not quite what I expected.  

So I'm trying to prepare myself for it this time around too. The disadvantage this time is the unknown. This is the first road trip and that we are doing.  We also are going to attempt to go eighteen'ish hours without having to tell them.  Any guesses how this will play out?  

Until next time, I will leave you with this.  

See ya real soon!
