Packing for Summer??
So I'm getting excited for the big trip to Aussie land coming up shortly and I asked my sister the temperature so I could pack appropriately. Well she said it's around the 90s or 100s degrees...hmmm. Good bye sweaters hello tang tops. So under the bed I dived (that's where I keep my summer clothes due to limited space in our closet)
What's cool about looking at clothes you haven't worn in a few months is that they seem almost new. This trip will be especially interesting as far as packing as I have to make sure to make room for Caden's clothes. One would think that baby summer clothes would be on sale in the stores but no all the heavy sweaters and ski jackets are..oh well.
The plane trip is around 15 to 16 hours long (from LA to Melbourne) and I've tried to think of the most creative way to carry Caden in my lap the whole time. I was pleasantly surprised to hear from my sister that if you sit in the bulk head seats ( the seats that have a wall in front of them) there are portable crips the airlines provides that attach to the wall versus the small cribs that you can try to squeeze on the floor in front of you in a regular seat. So when I picked my airline seat I thought I picked a bulk head seat. Turns out I pick the seat 2 aisles behind the bulk head...Bummer.
I got Caden's passport already...sooo cute. Surprisingly it's good for 5 years and I had the picture taken when he was 2 months old. Will they really be able to recognize a 5 year old (if he travels when he's 5) based on his 2 month old picture? oh well
