What was Wingnut thinking? Of course, the trip has started....it starts the minute you step out the door! I had heard of the writing on banana trick but have never tried it. Too bad his Dad didn't have more of a reaction.

Oh yes, the food pictures begin the minute the trip starts! And Chili's has such yummy food, it's hard not to photograph it.

I had no idea about the toothpick and the banana. I'm going to have to try that!

Agreed - vacation starts the minute you leave your home property!

Also agreed - one must order those egg rolls at Chili's!

Funny banana trick - I've not heard of that before.

Let's go to Disney!!!

Silly Wingnut! Of course the vacation already started!

Actually I go by the rule that vacation starts the second I walk out the door from work! He wouldn't be too happy with me! I'm the one who would be taking a picture of my car before I get in it with a caption of First 'ride' of vacation!

LMAO! That message on the bananas cracked me up. I really need to try that.

And I hear you on the egg rolls at Chili's. They are AMAZING.

It seems that you and I have very similar packing methods! Although in addition to the pacing and list making, I also find 73 other things that I MUST DO.

AVOCADO EGGROLLS? Those sound phenomenal.

HAHAH, banana messages. Who knew? I must try that.

I so want to try your nana writing feat! I think I'll write OUCH! It's amazing what you learn here!

I agree with everyone else, it's not too soon to start snapping photos of your food when you are enroute to your destination. Yummy southwest egg rolls and chipotle fajitas. Yummmm..... I took photos of my food in Vegas but then realized I was at a client dinner. Oops!

Looking forward to reading all about your hilarious adventures because I know there are more waiting for us!

I'm in the queso camp. No one else in my family would eat the egg rolls with me.

Love the banana (am I the only one who hears Gwen Stefani when I write/type banana?) trick! Maddie and I will have to try that! Too bad Mr. Wingnut was underwhelmed, still fun though!

Oooh, that banana/toothpick thing sounds like fun! I don't think bananas stick around long enough in our house for the message to show up, but I think I'll try it anyway.

I've only been to Chilli's once (I know, I know!) and I was kinda disappointed, but put avocado in anything and I'll eat it!
