Forgot the Kitchen Sink...

Upon hearing about our Buffalo trip this morning, the boys decided to pack some snacks. While I was in the shower, Matt took out our cooler and filled it full of everything in our pantry: raisins, fruit leather, mini-marshmallows (I didn't know we had any!), "chewies" (gummy snacks), breakfast bars, Dennis's power bars for running, and cheesy crackers. Of course, the marshmallow bag split open during their endeavor, so they had to consume half the bag a few.

They were so proud of their "packing," and when I commented on the high proportion of junk food, Matt proudly exclaimed:

"Oh, Mom, we packed all the fruit, too!"

I'm pretty sure 5 bananas, 6 peaches, 4 apricots, a quart of blueberries, and 7 plums will stave off starvation during the 2 hour drive.

I think I have a little "re-packing" to do!

I love and miss those boys so much. I just know you appreciated the "help"

LOL! Are you going to let the boys "help" you pack for California too? Now that would be interesting.

A few serious recommendations: 2 rolls of toilet paper, a few closet hangers and just enough dish and laundry soap for your stay. Oh, and a flat bathtub drain plug, just in case yours has a slow leak like ours!

I never thought about hangers! And toilet paper??? LOL! Good to know- we'll stock up on everything when we arrive!
