Although intermittent downpours have been happening in my part of the world, I am not ready to give up summer just yet. I am still holding out hope that we would hit the beach. 🙂
When we do include it in our plans, I have to drag out our luggage. Aside from changes of clothes, underwear and pajamas; there must be swimming clothes, plus the kids’ goggles and kickboards. They love frolicking in water!
When all that’s prepared, save for the vitamins and toothbrushes that I leave until the day of departure, I make sure that our house is ready to be unoccupied for a couple or more days.
Before we go away on vacation, my husband and I have to keep the items on this pre-vacation checklist from SimpliSafe in mind and on hand. SimpliSafe is a wireless home security system that can help keep your home safe while you travel. The PDF file can be downloaded near the end, BTW. These are important, especially the one about protecting the home.
When we have peace of mind about the things we left before we go away on vacation, then, we could enjoy the wonderful time spent away from home with our family.
I always take delight in a good family adventure. Therefore, I must gear up ourselves with all our needs, especially the children’s, so we will not go last-minute panic-searching. I always include:
- kid-friendly top-to-toe wash
- mosquito-repellent oil
- balms for headache, tummy ache, nicks and insect bites
- kid-friendly sunblock lotion
- their slippers
- natural baby oil for their backs to prevent catching a cold while swimming
- their vaccination records
- a wet bag
- their toys or art materials for the long trip
- I think I should include pillows for sleeping in the car
These are some of the things in my own family trip with children checklist. 🙂
