Getting There.

The day of our wedding anniversary was a really difficult day to get through. Every little thing reminded me of Max. I still have his bundle of clothes I have kept sitting on a chair in my bedroom. I need to store them away. On the pile of clothes is one of Max's caps. He loved wearing caps. I look at the cap and shake my head. I still can't believe he is no longer here. I could hear him asking " Hun where is my cap?" "Which one?" I would ask, he had a collection. "You know my favourite one". I gave him one of his caps when he left, to put in his coffin. I kept his favourite one.

So I have our tickets and our passports now I just need to start packing. I have few things on the agenda, our travel agent was kind enough to give us a free Elephant Trek experience, not sure what Boo will think of that but we will give it a go. We are going to visit an orphanage over there. I am taking over some of Boo's used clothes, I will also be picking up some supplies they need there. Apart from that we are just going to spend a lot of the time at the beach and around the pool. Oh and do some shopping at the markets, I love the Thai markets!

Boo has decided that throwing tantrums is his new thing. Which is making me very nervous for our flight. Lots of deep breaths.
I am hoping to have internet access whilst away, I may blog I may not.

Wish us luck!

If we don't hear from you til after you get back, we will quite understand! You will have a full schedule just keeping up with BB, I'm sure. Although the other experiences you have planned sound good, too.

Hopefully the tantrums are just a temporary glitch due to some... growth spurt or phase of the moon or whatever. We are having one of those heavenly good-behaviour spells the last few days here and I'm sure that won't last either! At any rate, the holiday will be very distracting if something is bothering him.

The anniversary is the real tough one. I'm glad you got through it, but I'm sorry to had to endure an anniversary without him in the first place. I can't imagine how hard your day must have been.

Just make sure you give him a big run-around before you get on the plane. Don't sit in the lounge! I'm sure he will be so interested in everything on the plane that you won't have any problems. I've found that the hardest times are when you're waiting - check in, after landing and customs. Might pay to have some things up your sleeve for these times.

Can you stand one more suggestion.....give him something to drink on take off and landing..bottle sippy cup or seemed to help my kids.

What a small world this is. My cousin is currently in Thailand visiting the orphanage her nonprofit supports. It's probably not the same one, but if you see an American ex-pageant-girl and her husband wandering around, don't be afraid to say hi.

Have a fantastic trip! I think Southeast Asia is a great place for travel with young children. We took Eggbert to Indonesia when she was a baby, and traveling with her was so much easier than I'd feared.

Well done for making it through your anniversary day.

Enjoy the holiday and don't worry about sending out virtual postcards.
I won't tell Linnea about the elephant experience, she'd be demanding we book a holiday there too!
