Prepping for a Trip

Tomorrow, the Spires girls are kicking summer off early with a long weekend in Philadelphia.  We have an action packed weekend planned including a funeral, a reunion, visiting family, and playing tourist.

In addition to packing (clothes, books, and a few toys) before every car trip, we have a standard to do list:

  1. Change the oil and have the car inspected
  2. Check the tires (today we had to replace all 4 tires- see photo below)
  3. Buy snacks for the car and hotel
  4. Make sure all of the car headphones have working batteries
  5. Make sure we pack a variety of DVDs
  6. Fill the gas tank up
  7. Get some cash for toll roads, emergencies, and candy
