Meet the McNeil Family

Monday, August 23, 2010


5 suitcases, 4 tote bags, 2 grocery bags, and 1 diaper bag later we are packed and ready to go.  Tomorrow, we are heading out for our long awaited vacation.  The kids are going to spend a week with Grandma & Grandpa, while Matt and I fly to the UK.  I won a scholarship from the MPS Society to attend the Sanfilippo conference, so we are making a little vacation out of it.  We will visit our old haunts, get together with friends and attend the conference.  It is going to be a busy, but fantastic time away for the 2 of us.  Our 12th anniversary is in a few weeks, so another reason to celebrate.  We have never left the kids for more than 1 night, so this is going to be an adventure for all of us, but they are going to be in excellent hands.  I am going to miss them tremendously and call home often, but this is going to be a wonderful experience.  Bon voyage!!
