Top 10 Things JD Is Packing In His Carry-On

On Monday, JD and I are headed to Disney Aulani. We made a pit-stop at the Disney store this past weekend and JD got a new Cars 2 backpack. So far he’s packing…(Um, I can't believe he's old enough to have his own Carry-On, sob)

1.  VTech Innotab It's loaded with enough games, e-books and activities for the 11-hour non-stop flight home. (Pray for me.)

2.  Portable DVD Player + headphones (Cars, Cars 2, Toy Story 3 and Alvin and the Chipmunks)

3.  Crayola Color Wonder Book and Markers

4.  Kindergarten learning workbook. I picked up this one. 

5.  Cars (I wish we didn’t have to pack them, because they are going to fall off the tray and roll down the plane, but WE HAVE TO PACK THEM.)

6.  Learning flashcards

7.  Crayons and coloring book/paper. JD drew this pic of us in Hawaii last night at the diner. (Uncle Carlo [Red] is coming, JD = Green and I'm Blue—I look amazing.) 

8.  Books (JD is a bookworm!) 

9.  Snacks: Goldfish, Cars pretzels, Clementines, apple slices, cheese sticks, straw sippy cup.

10. Blanky. He’s been to NYC, The Jersey Shore, LA, Florida, The Bahamas and now Hawaii! See pics of JD on his first flight to LAX with Blanky here

Bonus: I reminded JD’s Pre-K teacher he would be out all next week and she told me she was going to prepare a fun plane packet for him.
