I’ve always thought of myself as an expert packer, even though I have almost no experience in packing for long trips. But since we’ve always lived in small homes and I grew up going camping, I’ve gotten used to cramming a lot of things in small places. Since I’d never traveled with a toddler though I was a little overwhelmed. I read as much on the internet about traveling with a toddler as I possibly could. My searching led me to Trips with Tykes and I fell in love. I devoured every single one of their posts. Since we were going to visit family we had already planned on them getting a few of the things we would need while we were there, but there were still a lot of things that we needed to pack.
