Ever play the game

"We're Going On a Trip?"  (And I'm taking an apple, a basket, a cat, a dog, an elephant, a fishing pole, etc...   It's a great game for memory and alphabetizing, since each person has to start at the beginning and say each word in order until they get to the next letter and they get to add a new one beginning with that letter.  We've had lots of fun with it in the car.

Well, last night, I printed two copies of this out:

Mommy's going on a trip

on an Airplane

to Boston

and I'm taking my Coat

then way down below in tiny letters, I wrote

and I'm taking YOU!

Then I folded them into a paper airplane and after supper they sailed across the table to the girls.   

They were  quite excited--once they read the fine print!    Well, dd7 wasn't at first.  They had been told that only Mommy and Daddy were going to Boston and that they would be staying with Grandma and Grandpa.  They were really looking forward to staying in Grandma and Grandpa's newly redone guest room, with its bed full of pillows (and bounciness!).   But then the realization she was going on an AIRPLANE sunk in! 

Boston, here we come!


  1. I love how you did that! :D

    Have a fun time, friend! I'll try not to be too jealous! :)

  2. That should be and exciting and fun trip for you and your girls. I know you will have a great time. Come visit my blog site when you have a chance at Blessings
