Our main real reason for going is a wedding. Our good friends are having a beach wedding on Saturday afternoon. I'm really looking forward to it, because not only are we sort of going on mini-holiday, it's going to be packed with friends! I suppose that the only way it could be better was if some sort of family were going to be there too. Someone to love on our baby while we cut a rug, you know? But aside from that....
So today I'm in the throes of organizing and preparing. I am by far the best packer I know. I never pack too light, and never pack too much. I always end up with the perfect appropriate outfits for whatever occasion pulled out of my tiny weekend bag. When I pack for Europe (as if I've done that recently! HA!), I bring a medium-sized suitcase and it's the perfect amount.
Except. I can't get that to work for my family. We need the Pack&Play, we need a couple different outfits a day for the messy baby, we need layers upon layers of clothes for a chilly winded beach, we need dress clothes and shoes, we need a weekend's worth of diapers and wipes, some toys, some blankies! A stoller! Milk! Food!
I feel like there's so much CRAP to lug around that we may or may not need (my worst packing nightmare) that there's no way it's going into our tiny two-door Honda.
I think I have to go buy a bigger car to hold all of this.
