Wow--We spent all Sunday afternoon shopping for the trip, as well as some of Monday afternoon. Finding different medicines that may be needed and guessing about Maria's needs took more time than we thought. In addition, buying gifts for the officials and nannies was a difficult task. Everything we were going to buy was made in China. We finally stopped at Bath & Body Works and Gertrude Hawk and found American made items. Wow is it hard not to eat that Gertrude Hawk candy up right now:)
We were able to buy less for the trip, as far as snacks is concerned because our neighbor was kind enough to bring us a bunch of snacks. The picture below shows Macella & Kirstie displaying all our yummy snacks!
