Hit the Frog and Toad.

We are heading out of Sydney for the Queens birthday long weekend. As always when getting ready to go away, I'm slightly apprehensive. How will the kids cope with the longish drive? or more accurately how will we cope with what the kids dish out on the drive? Will the dogs get car sick again? What will the weather be like? Will everyone 'gel' so that we actually get to relax and chill out?
We will have to wait and see. The car is packed to the rafters with a random assortment of clothes (from swimmer to thermal underwear), bedding, toys, books, art supplies, food, dogs beds and anything else I though we may need over the next few days. We 'could' have packed lighter but realistically it will be easier to relax if we have everything we need.
We are about 1/3 of the way through the drive, kids have eaten all their food, dogs have finally stopped whining in anticipation, we've stopped once for petrol and twice for someone needing the toilet.
So far it seems like my idea of the perfect family mini break. Wish us good weather, vibes and food!!

Watching - The road...

Listening - Kids quietly bickering.

Reading - Traffic signs.

State of mind - So glad to be getting out of Sydney for a few days.
