Bubba's Packing Job and Game Answer

I had both of my kids pack their own suitcases before our trip to Delray Beach, Florida.  I simply did not have time to do it myself because I had to prepare the house for showings while we were gone.

"Bubba, did you pack everything?" I asked before we left.

"Yes, Mama."

"You have your toothbrush and toothpaste and hairbrush?"

"Yes, Mama.  I packed everything."

"Okay."  I hoped he was right.

When we arrived in Florida, the kids wanted to go swimming.  My boy rummaged through his suitcase.  "Mama, my bathing suit isn't in here."

I looked in that thing.  There was no bathing suit.  But there was a winter hat - one lined with rabbit fur and ear flaps. 

"Dude, this is Florida.  Why in the world would you bring a winter hat?"

Bubba grinned.  "I watched the weather channel, and it said it was going to be cold because a hurricane just came through.  I was being prepared.  You never know when there will be a blizzard in Florida!"

Right.




Now for the answer to yesterday's question:  Where are Sherry, Bubba, and Squirt in this picture?

     

I am on the left, standing behind the two guys stooped down.  I'm wearing an orange/tan paisley shirt, I have long brown hair, and some guy has his arm around me (I have no idea who he is!).  Bubba is the kid sitting near me on the ground in front of the man wearing a blue tank shirt.  Bubba is wearing glasses, has a black shirt on, and was drinking a beverage from a red cup (I hope it's not beer!).  My daughter is in the middle, wearing sun glasses and a lime green top.  Her hair is long, brown, and wet (I wonder why.).

So there you go, a recent picture of me and my clan!

    1. Yay, you! I lived in Florida a few years when I was a kid. I think it snowed a grand total of three times. And even that was nothing.

    When hell freezes over.

  15. Bubba is absolutely right. It's always best to be prepared! That kid slays me.

  18. Lovely to see you and the kids in the family pic. My guesses were correct except for Bubba. Must have been a bummer to miss the trunks on a beach trip.

  24. Oh, that was a fun story. I've had more than one trip to Target or Walmart when we've been on holiday...and it wasn't always the kiddo that forgot something. :)
