Dear MGC readers,
The traveling season is upon us. Whether you are planning a trip to visit family over Labor Day, Thanksgiving or Christmas this year, you know all too well that packing can be a stressful affair.
You either pack too much or not enough, pack the wrong things or forget the essentials. How many times have you left the house only to return for the camera's charger or had to stop half way through your destination to purchase a bottle of Tums?
I have been there myself, and with two boys in tow, we not only have to pack for ourselves, we also need to pack for them, all the time maintening full time jobs! No wonder folks need a vacation to rest from their vacation!
So, to make things easier for everybody, starting with me this year, I made these two packing check lists. I think they pretty much cover everything you might need for a week end getaway or 4 days away from home (2 days travel, 2 days visiting). The first sheet includes a His and Hers packing check list as well as responsibilities before leaving. At the bottom of the sheet I have included all items which need to be packed specifically for the car.
The second sheet includes all that is needed when traveling with children including what you should keep in the car to keep your little ones entertained! I realize not everyone has children under two, but I still included the Diaper/Bottles check box to the list, to cover all the bases!

Thank you, and Bon Voyage!
