Mari and Lila are hanging with their Papa Jimmy (my Dad) for Spring Break this week, and of course, we had to pack some old stand-bys for their trip to Virginia: Their American Girl “Addy” dolls; Crayolas and notebooks; their iPod shuffles; their favorite DVDs (this week, “The Game Plan,” and “Akeelah & The Bee” are making a strong showing); and, of course, their Dominoes set. But I added a few new things to their suitcases, because what girl goes on vacation without something special and new in her bag?

Check out Lila and Mari’s Spring Break swag:

Find me on Polyvore

Clockwise: The Great Word Race ups the spelling skills, but in a super fun way that even the 6-year-old can get into ($25 Fatbrain Toys); Lila will pay homage to the Easter bunny in this vintage brown bunny tee ($16, Mini Boden); and how fly will Mari look cozying into this polka dot terry jacket? ($38, Mini Boden); Derrick Barnes’ Ruby and the Booker Boys series is a huge hit around these parts, and “The Slumber Party Payback” will be perfect for curling up with before the girls get tucked in ($5, Amazon); What? Should I get to look cute too? This is my new, adorable large leather tote ($130, Banana Republic), and; I’m tempted to keep these bad boys for myself; alas, they only fit Mari’s perfect moon-pie face ($26, Boden (yup, I’m kind of addicted)).
