My sister and I took the kids (minus Oscker-too small so he stayed with my parents) on a trip south of the border to get some new duds for school. We left early Thursday morning (August 30) and returned home late Saturday night (September 1). It was a successful trip and lots of bargains were found. Jack and Lily were troupers as the days started early and ended late but we managed to make it work with breaks for treats and movies. This was our 3rd year in a row, first time for Lily.
Have we started a tradition?!?!
