Well the cheap floats I ordered came in and we don't really like them. We will find a use for them at home on the lake I'm sure so they won't go to waste. But after listening to some of the onehappy podcasts I decided we would be better off with the swimways papasan floats (thanks CindyO and Burghboy) . Target has some on sale online for $14.99 but they only had one color left so if you are looking, now's the time.
I gave in to the diver in the family and got a good quality mask for snorkeling. Dare I say, I think he was right - I can tell the difference from my old one just by how it sticks to my face.
Two weeks to go, and all that's left is finding movies to download for the plane ride and adding new music to the ipod for the beach days.
