My hubby, myself, our DD and my sister and her boyfriend are going to Myrtle Beach next month. I've NEVER been there and this will be our first time traveling with DD. We're gonna drive down (I'm scared to death to fly) so I made a list of things we'll be needing for our 4 day stay and 14 hour drive. Here's my list.


- A case of diapers & wipes

- 12 little Graduates meals for DD & 2 bags of yogurt bites

- Her tickle me Elmo & favorite blanket

- 4 dresses, 2 sets of pj's, 3 tank tops, 2 pair of jeans, 1 pair of flip flops, 3 pairs of socks, 1 hat

- Travel system

- 2 sippy cups

- Pack -n- Play

- Baby lotion & body wash


Anything else I should bring or forgetting?

will you all take 1 car? does she like riding in the car? when my youngest was little she didn't. if she doesn't I'd take some books, or something that can hang from her carseat that can make noise. I'd also get some beach toys for her to play in the sand with. My kids get hot easy even in winter maybe get one of the little fans that you can attach to the diaper bag or your purse. good luck and have fun. also i'd bring some type of stroller, even if she's walking she wont want to walk all the time.

I always overpack on the clothes since kids are so messy, spit up, get diahrea, etc. I would bring more clothes!

I didn't even think about sand toys! Thanks! As for riding in the car, she really enjoys it. We'll be taking 1 car, so I'm hoping my sister can keep her busy for some of the trip. I'll make sure to add fan & diaper bag to my list..lol. Her travel system is her stroller, but I'm thinking about getting an umbrella stroller instead of taking the whole thing.
