Luggage Count

We are FINALLY on our way to Texas this Saturday! We're driving to Bremerton tomorrow night to stay with my in-laws, so I've been frantically packing for the last 2 days.

Here's our luggage count, so far; keep in mind I have to pack 2 adults, a preschooler, and a baby:

2 full-size suitcases

2 small suitcases

1 small bag full of whatever doesn't fit into Sleeping Beauty's suitcase

1 backpack full of things for Prince Charming and I do to on the plane

1 backpack full of things for Cinderella to do on the plane

1 diaper bag for Sleeping Beauty, which is also my purse

1 Pack 'n Play for Sleeping Beauty to sleep in, with a changing table

1 stroller

1 car seat for Sleeping Beauty (we're getting a booster seat for Cinderella with the car rental)

1 laptop computer for Cinderella to watch movies on

That's far. This is also in addition to whatever my in-laws bring for themselves (yes, we're going with my in-laws).

Traveling with kids is exhausting!

And we haven't even left the house yet.


  1. Ugh. Been there, done that, got the t-shirt. Luckily, security people tend to see people with babies coming a mile away and will help you get through the lines. And, luckily, car seats don't count against your luggage limit on planes.
