Packing for Vacation

I hate it!

Packing for a long weekend you take the same things as packing for two weeks. You just take fewer of some items.

We're going away Friday to Sunday.

Camera
Camera charger
Camera cord for photo transfer
Cell phones
Cell phone charger
MacBook
MacBook charger
iPad (SO's new toy)
iPad Charger
Tom Tom Navigation Device
Tom Tom Power Cord

How did our parents manage?

Passports

Pills for her
Pills for me

Oh, almost forgot, clothes.

I had to convince SO we could fit everything into one small suitcase.

Years ago our parents took a little weekend trip to get away from it all, now when we travel we don't get away from any of it!

Have a safe trip!

Not necessarily. Depends on where you vacation.
