What A Difference A Year Makes!

As we were packing up the car to head down to the beach a couple of weeks ago I couldn't help but notice what a difference there was in our packing between last years beach trip and this years. Last year our van was loaded down. I mean there was stuff everywhere! Most of it was Ben's stuff. This year everything fit in the back of the van without even having to put down the seats. It is so nice not to have to take a pack and play, tons of toys, stroller and other various "baby things." It made packing so easy! These days I don't have to remember to pack a bag for Ben to go anywhere so we can just go. I am going to enjoy it for a few more months and then I guess it will be back to crazy amounts of stuff needed just to make a trip to the grocery store!

Here is the loaded down van last year - 2008

Ben chilling on the ride last year. Note paci!

Ben chilling on the ride this year. You can see the seats are up in the back. Very little stuff and no paci!
