Traveling moms help a mama out!

2 1/2 months from now I will be flying to Maine to get my kiddos!! Time sure has flown. I'm getting together what I'll need and here is what I've got so far. Its a 7 1/2 hour flight with a 3 1/2 hour layover in NYC.

*Laptop with a 3 way headphone converter for movies
*Birth certificates and copy of the co/divorce decree just in case
*My Mom got them each a tablet so I have those to give them
*Swim suits (for the hotel in maine we will be staying at before our flight)
*Money (of course) but I'm unsure whether to do half and half in travelers checks or more. I don't use a bank card or have a credit card. So I either pay cash or a prepaid cc.
*Mp3 player
*A couple decks of magic the gathering cards. My son loves that game and I got him into it :)
*They are huge readers so I want to stop at the mall in Portland and let them each pick out a book.


Any suggestions of things that I'm missing or things that would make the trip easier?
My children are 9 and 13. I don't have much experience with super long flights like this so any advice is welcome. I know its still a ways off but I need to do something to keep my kind busy while I wait for these final 2 months to pass!!
