The countdown begins

For DD1 it began some time ago....with the weeks,days,hours and minutes counting down on her phone.....but for me it begins today.....because 4 weeks today we will be half way across the world in San Francisco.
The excitement in our house is now tangible.....DD1 has planned for 3 years to spend a 'big birthday' in Hawaii.....her friend will be having a birthday in SF.....and they asked us to go with them.....how could we possibly refuse such an invitation.
A friend said to me "it's not a holiday....it's an adventure"
That is exactly how we are looking at it.....we intend to spend every minute of everyday in San Francisco and Los Angeles exploring and discovering.....the girls intend to do the same in Hawaii....but OH and myself have decided that a bit of relaxation with cocktails and Hawaiian sunsets sounds quite good to us.
The 'paperwork' is all done......the guide books have been poured over.....excursions planned or booked.....all that remains is to keep a lid on the excitement.....and decide what to pack!!
