20 Days and Counting

My mom bought bus tickets for me, my 3 little ones and my oldest grandaughter to go to Kansas for a 3 week vacation. Yay for my mom!!!! We are leaving in 20 days, Dec. 27 (Lexie's 19th BD)and arriving in Wichita at 12:30 on December 29. I haven't been home in almost 10 years and I am so looking forward to this trip!! My much older brother (hee!hee!), Mike,is turning 50 on January 7 and mom wanted all of us 6 kids to be home for his birthday party. I will get to see my 3 sisters and 2 brothers and their spouses, my parents, niece's, nephews, my Nana and hopefully lots of other friends and relatives while I'm there. We're going to have Christmas together, a baby shower for my niece and then of course my brothers birthday party. Lexie, Jake and Anthony are going to be going to, but they are flying out a week after I leave. Earl probably isn't going to get to join us (I'm pouting) because his second job, who is also our landlord, won't give him a week off to come. Hopefully they'll change their minds in the next few never know.

Anyway, I'm so excited and so thankful to my mom for giving me and the kids this wonderful trip!!!

Lucky you! What I would give for a three week vacation. I hope you have a wonderful time and don't have any delays because of weather.

I visited Wichita one time when I was just a little kid. I remember that they had a fantastic zoo and we had a lot of fun at an old west type town...can't think of the name of it right now. I've still got pictures that make me smile. That must have been over 25 years ago. Wow...I must be getting old. :)
