We are busy preparing for a week long trip to California... 2 adults, 5 children.
To Bake: Instead of spending tons of money on unhealthy, not very delicious food, I am trying to bake a lot of stuff so we can have breakfast and lunch ready while on the road.
2 1/2 dozen pumpkin chocolate chip muffins
2 dozen blueberry muffins
2 dozen bagels: plain, onion, and cinnamon
3 loaves of bread
Will also bring along peanut butter, jelly, various lunch meats and cheese
Snacks to include graham crackers, pretzels, and fruit
Will also buy a pack of two of water bottles
Hopefully this will be sufficient.
Then on to clothes...
I am assuming we will have access to washer/dryer at some point
4 pairs of pajamas (each)
5 outfits (each)
will be using disposable diapers on the trip instead of cloth
Everyone else will probably bring 2 pairs of pajamas and 5 outfits...
Toys and books
Must make sure to bring lots of books for the twins...they love them. Also, their baby dolls, Raggedy Anne dolls, toy phones, and blankets. These are their favorite things.
The other kids will pack some books and toys of their choosing.
Also, we will have a bag of wrapped birthday presents for Josiah, as he will turn 5 on Wednesday the 18th. He is very excited to have his birthday with some California family and friends, and he wants to have it at his favorite place, the Avila Beach Park. I guess that depends on the weather.
Barkers, Moores, Delmores, Wahls, anyone else... he (and we) want to see you all. You're all invited...details to follow I suppose.
Anyway, lots of preparing to do...
I must go.
Have a lovely day.
