Gone to the beach

We're packing up this morning and heading to the beach for a few days. Exciting as it is, I'm a little nervous about the fact that this is the first time my son will be sleeping away from home. Will he sleep? Will I sleep if he doesn't sleep? Considering we're going to be in the same hotel room - doubt it. Hmmm, this makes for a very interesting week doesn't it? Then again he might do the exact opposite of what I'm anticipating because as anyone that has kids knows they tend to do just that. This is one time I'd be thrilled to have him shock me. Oh please let the kid sleep well so we can actually have a cranky free fun filled vacation for his first time at the beach!

Moving along.

I'm taking along Maximum Ride The Angel Experiment by James Patterson, which I'm really into already and The Book Thief just in case I get more time to read than I even hoped for. That's a pretty far fetched idea since I'll be chasing a toddler on the beach, the boardwalk, the zoo, the mall, and everywhere else we go. But it will be a blast to see him have so much fun. He loves seeing new stuff. And I love seeing him love it. Back to the books - I'm really really diggin the Maximum Ride story and can't wait to read the rest of them since strangely enough I bought the first one and gave it to my sister to read, who then bought the whole series. Sweet, means I don't have to buy them.

Curious, anyone else read these books or have advice on sharing a hotel room with a almost two-year-old? (That has to be the most random mix of topics ever.)

I'm taking a blogging break until Friday (unless I really do have a lot of spare time and wi fi) but can't wait to post later on my new WIP and how fabulous my sister is for many reasons, the most recent being an incredible gift straight out of my book! Literally.

Not that I need to comment to you about this, but I will for your readers. The Maximum Ride series is great! I fell totally in love with the books and Max & the Flock. (So much so that I admit, I am starting a fan blog lol).

You will have a great trip, no worries, and I really hope you have time to finish The Angel Experiment so we can chat it up when you get back :-)

Good luck, and have fun. :)

Wish I had some advice on what to do with the two year old (hmm, second thought, maybe ignorance is bliss), and I haven't read either book, but have fun at the beach. Pack plenty of sunscreen!

Enjoy the vacay! And I can't wait to hear what you think of the Book Thief. It's one of our favorite books.

Awww! I cannot wait to her what Jenn got for you! You must tell me! I haven't read those books yet, hell I haven't even read Hunger Games yet! Ah! LOL!

Have lots of fun on mini vaca--you soo deserve it! =D
