Friday Feature: trip preparation

After months of anticipation, it's almost here - our big summer vacation, our Great Western Adventure Driving Tour. We made plans over Spring Break, finding hotels, reading restaurant reviews, determining the best sights and attractions along the way. The kids have been reading about the states we'll travel through and some relevant history to give them some context for the epic two week tour, and we are finally to single digits in our countdown.

Daddy has been doing a ton of work to bring the details together, too. The last week has been spent in confirming hotels; checking drive times; seeing what other nearby monuments, parks, and opportunities we need to capitalize on for this once-in-a-lifetime trip. In the last couple of days, he's gotten down to the details of the packing list. That's brought a little bit of shopping and a whole lot of staging of gear and equipment to make it the best trip ever:

We start the packing process this weekend for our upcoming departure. I'm so grateful that Daddy takes care of all of the details; he worries about all of the little things to make the big things perfect.
