Load up!

Yep, it's time! The trailer is just about ready, I think. Tomorrow Dad and I will strap down the water tank and do a final check through, then it's time to figure out how to load!

The final touches this week: completing the onboard water system; installing screen at kitchen vent previously open enough for VERY large bugs to use; completing cushion covers and curtains; replacing crushed dolly wheel (oops!); personalizing Junior with some help from a friend. :)

From Compact Jr. Upgrades

E chose the saying on the back of the trailer. I thought we were going to go with "Nowhere to be and all day to get there," but she requested "Not all who wander are lost." It's even more appropriate for this trip...particularly now that I've uploaded ALL the maps to the GPSr in addition to the BOX full of maps that'll ride shotgun.

In other news, E is prepping for braces. She's really excited about the prospect of eating corn on the cob and apples and such again in the future. (Since her front teeth have come in so off kilter, she hasn't been able to enjoy these things as much. Straightening, even a BIT, would make a big difference!) The ortho is having her start with the headgear as we head out. Should be educational at least!

Today we celebrated our near completion of the trailer, our pending vacation and a day off together with a visit to a relatively new water park (it opened LAST summer, but this was OUR first visit) in Paso Robles. Kind of a long drive for day at a water park, but it's a nice place to hang out, and PLENTY hot! The girls particularly enjoyed the wave pool and the ravine water feature. Mr. B and I worked our way through the three Big Kid slides to the ultimate - getting flushed!

Good times...
