Let’s See How This Goes

Last year I wrote about packing for a lake trip. I was just starting blogging and look where I am now! Somewhat better. My family is going to the beach for a week and my spring has been so crazy, that it’s finally set in that summer is here. It’s exciting and we can’t wait to take a break. However, that means we have to get our household in order and head out. Having a kid means that our old packing ways have gone out the window. I used to be a master at packing things in an overnight bag but that doesn’t cut it for a week and with a toddler. So I created some templates to print out with checklists (I love having lists) and I hope these help you when you are going out. Sometimes you are like, yes I know to pack sunscreen but as a parent, you often get overwhelmed so it’s nice to just have a list to check off. I also have heard packing cubes are great so we might invest in them. I either have too much or too little. Things I’ve learned, remember contact solution, it never hurts to pack a swimsuit, and pack extra underwear. Those are my patented tips. Also, always wear sunscreen and apply it liberally. This year my family started using mineral sunscreens to be more friendly to coral reefs. It’s been incredibly helpful. We also prefer organic bug spray. It works just as well. My son likes his board books and simple toys when we travel. I hope you like my lists and they help you with your summer packing.
