Tomorrow morning we are going to a hotel on Diani Beach (Mombasa) until Monday afternoon. Even though we have lived here for nearly 3 1/2 years, I have never been to the beach. I am DYING to take a dip in the Indian Ocean and watch the sunset from our little cottage. As I told Grace yesterday, even though she will (hopefully) have a lot of fun...this trip is really about ME!
And I discovered tonight that packing to bring two small ones to the beach for 4 days is just about equal to packing to go on home leave for 4-6 weeks! Shouldn't we just need bathing suits for this adventure? And diapers? And sand toys? And mosquito nets for the babies? And bug stuff? And sunblock? And car seats? And snacks? And Noah's can't-live-without bouncy seat? You get the idea.
Keep your fingers crossed that we have a WONDERFUL time on the beach and that nobody comes back with malaria :) Until next week...
