The Apple Doesn’t Fall Far

We are leaving for Hilton Head early Sunday morning to join my parents, brother and newphew for a week at the beach.  I remember as a kid we used to spend a week or two every summer at a little apartment on Clear Lake and our huge Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser station wagon would be packed to the seams, with the three of us kids and the dog fighting it out in the backseat.  I never imagined I would turn into my parents, and yet I just finished writing typing up a list that starts like this:

Camera
Chargers (phone & camera)
Floaties & life jacket
Bike helmet
Air mattress
Noodles
Golf clubs
Sand toys
DVD player & DVDs
Backseat toys & books
Diaper Bag
Snacks
Beach towels
Beach blanket
Beach umbrellas
Beach ball
Sunscreen…

(yes, I type my packing list – shut up)

Hopefully our smaller, modern station wagon will hold it all.
