Beach Bum Planning

This week is all about planning, packing, sorting, listing, cooking and more for our trip to Cape Cod. The kids are so excited and all I can think is how this is starting to feel like a full time job. Truth is I am really excited for this trip!  Nothing spells out fun quite like quality time in the sun for me and I do believe this will be a very memorable family trip for the kiddos.

When my husband was younger trips to Cape Cod were tradition for a few years and so he decided to try and set such in motion for our own family. Along for the ride will be our 3 kids (ages 9,4,2) as well as my Mother-in-Law. She has already called and given me her list of items that she will be bringing along plus recommendations for what I should pack. 😉 We both are old school and plan our lives on sticky notes, index cards and other forms of paper. I’ve come to realize that as wonderful as an iPhone may be with scheduling apps and calendars etc. I truly love writing things down. Recently I was introduced to an amazing collection of life planners, stationary sets, recipe cards, calendars and more! Consider me smitten and also kicking myself for having not ordered my planner before now lol! Go check out her awesome goodies:

Do you have any Summer travel traditions?

Tomorrow morning we book our first trip to Cape Cod and all are excited! This place holds some wonderful memories for my husband when he was a child. He seems quite eager to share this experience with our 3 kids and see if we collectively agree that this should be adopted as a yearly tradition. I for one am excited for some real beach fun in the sun, instagram shares and whale watching of course!

Do you have a traveling tradition of your own?
