Today I unearthed the suitcases from the dungeon under the stairs. I did three loads of laundry. I packed the boys' suitcase. I went to the grocery store for new toothbrushes and travel snacks.
I have not packed.
Whim has packed.
So, naturally, I am working on a blog post.
Suan Sampran is one of my favorite day trips from the city, and we visited there yesterday with our friends the Heils. It is peaceful and beautiful, and I never get tired of the traditional activities.
Besides being way late (Sorry, Malia!!) and a little spat that may or may not have, but definitely did spring from being way late, we spent a wonderful morning there. It was the perfect way to celebrate the end of summer school and the beginning of the real summer holidays.
Whim brought along the real camera, so this will be a break from the crappy but easy iPhone pictures.

|Look at my little Leave it to Beaver boy|
|I think we did great with five kids under five. Minimal crying, occasional naughtiness (I'm looking at you M and L).|
And one of the best parts was that Whim and Mark agreed to swap photo shooting sessions, so we each came away with family pictures.
|I'll save ours for another post, but here's one of the whole Heil family.|
