1) DON'T ever go on a holiday weekend.
2) Remember to take out your CAMERA more often
3) FOOD is EXPENSIVE, thank goodness Jennifer sent us with lunch and snacks she saved us a TON
4) Going with cousins makes the experience all the better (thanks Steph & Korey)
5) I am a VERY smart mom for putting Owen's cell number in Gavin's pocket in case he wondered (yes he needed it)
6) THREE years between visits is WAY to long. The kids are all getting big enough that we will have to go back again SOON.
