Things I've Learned on the First Day of Vacation...

1. Packing light really is a matter of opinion.
2. 4 adults and 2 babies require more room than 3 row seating crossover.
3. You can keep to a time schedule WITH two babies!
4. Eating breakfast for under $3.00 can be done... 2- 20oz. drinks and a 12inch. flat bread sandwich from Subway = yum!
5. A 2 hour ride can fly by when you're having fun!
6. When choosing a random gas station... choose one CLOSEST to the exit ramp.

7. When someone speaks to you in the random gas station far away from the exit ramp... no matter what they say... the proper response is "What's up?"
8. If you choose not to respond (which I chose to do)... they may ask you if you speak English AND assume you are a prostitute... (which happened to me today)
9. When the gas station attendant has to tell the people "Leave her alone, she's not from here" you have picked the WRONG gas station.  Another sign would be the police officer who had a car pulled over giving us strange looks and fearing for my life but still taking pictures so I could blog about it later!

10. When stopping at a scary gas station your bladder can not fully relax causing you to have to stop AGAIN at a safer location!
11. Babies don't do so well in fancy lobbies after a 4 hour car ride.
12. Warm weather + babies + husbands + slides = lots of laughs... and pictures!

13.  It is easy to feel Walmart envy when you see lots of yummy things your walmart does not carry... like fancy rice made of bamboo and couscous. 
14.  Slow melt Popsicles make for happy babies!
15.  When changing a poop diaper while the child is in standing position... keep other infants far away.  If not, it could result in the other infant crawling towards a poop bottom and the mom grabbing poop butt baby and wiping the poop butt on her jeans.  Large poop stain on jeans is not cute.  BUT, you know you are a real mom when you don't even flinch about the large brown stain gracing your cute jeans and pretend like all is well!
16.  Indoor pools are the new bath tub.

So much fun and it is only day one of vacation!  Work... what is that?!  Tomorrow is my bff's 30th... I am off to bake a cake and get ready for some fun and celebration!  I hope you all have a great weekend!
