Packing stresses

We leave next Wednesday for my sister's wedding. Yesterday I started to get everything together and it was way more challenging than packing for vacations in the past. For the wedding festivities (which is more like a four day event) I am trying to pack for each day and remember exactly what needs to go. Yesterday I had Ethan and Logan try on their dress clothes because we bought them back in April and I vaguely remembered that Logan's pants needed altered (yes a remembered with a couple days to spare!). As soon as I pulled them from the closet and looked at them the stress of having to possibly trying to get them altered was upon me. Luckily when he tried them on and put his belt on they we just a tiny bit long so to save myself any additional stress we are leaving them as is. When Ethan tried his clothes on he was less than thrilled saying "I feel like a dork," "I am NOT wearing this shirt tucked in," and "how long are we going to have to wear this?" Maybe he will feel better when he sees all the "other dorks" dressed up. My boys seldom dress up. They are basketball shorts and tee shirt kids all the way.

Most of the clothes we are taking are set to the side so that the boys do not wear them before we leave. However I am thinking, "do we have suitcases big enough to fit all of this stuff?" Yet another stress but everything will work out in the end. There is no way I will allow this "stress" to take away the excitement and anticipation of this week!

I was in the same predicament as you in April... I also traveled on a plane to my brother-in-law's wedding. My son was in the wedding and so was my DH, so packing was interesting... we did manage to squeeze everything in and probably end up bringing too much! Have fun packing!!

Oh, I hate to pack...I know it'll all work out, you'll get everything together and if you do forget anything I'm sure they have stores where you're going ;)
