  • I agree with at least one change of clothes, also a swim suit. Our luggage was lost on our honeymoon!! I didn't have any clothes and we spent the first day in Aruba hanging out in JEANS in the hot Caribbean sun... not the best wardrobe choice!!!

  • I would make sure to have at least one extra change of cloths. Just in case luggage is lost or misplaced. If it were me, I would put tylenol and or...dramamine... :) I get sick a lot on trips.

    Also a good magazine or book.

  • Underwear! What if your checked bags get lost! just a pair or two, but you want them! I would also bring a couple of magazines and my ipod. a couple tampons or pads.. you never know! A good book and some snacks. The airlines are so expensive for any food now. Maybe a few pics of your kids, you might miss them!

    HAVE A GREAT TIME! I am totally jealous! I want a vacation with my dh and no kids!

  • Why do you need to check a bag? It sounds like you may be overpacking.

  • Things you're going to need while on the flight. A change of clothes for the kids, snacks (no liquids), entertainment for the kiddos, etc.
