Family Trip

This is my family trip blog. My mother told me since we will be driving across the country (CO -> Tx -> IL -> Ky -> CO) with a 4/5 month old and a 2 yr old dog we should blog it. So that's what I'm going to do.

Day 1

It is packing day. As new parents this packing thing is well NEW to us what do you pack for a baby how much how little. In my book I say her clothes are small so lets just bring all of them. We use cloth dippers and well i think we should bring cloth and disposable. Disposable for the driving and cloth for while we are at peoples houses as long as they are okay with it. But we have a list my wife came up with for the baby. I like lists it makes sure you don't forget any thing except for the things you for got to put on the list. Whats on the list you may ask well let me tell you: 
  • Dippers cloth and disposable.
  • Pack and Play crib. 
  • pump
  • milk freezer bags
  • bottles
  • pacifiers
  • Booger sucker
  • Nose Spray (the stuff that helps brake up boogers)
  • 1.5 weeks of onesies
  • 1.5 weeks of out fits (onesies and pants)
  • Car seat
  • Car seat base
  • Stroller
  • wipes
  • dipper rash cream 
  • dipper bag
  • changing table
  • feeding pillow
  • sleeping pillow
  • blankets
That's just the stuff I could remember. There is plenty more. The point here is that the baby adds so much more stuff. 

Before the kid we would pack the following:
  • Clothes
  • Bathroom stuff
  • Rc car
  • Laptops (yes we have multiple)
  • Beaglebone Black 
  • Dog
  • Gopro
That's all. Look at that list it is so simple. Who new adding a kid in the mix would triple the stuff. 

All I know is that I'm glad we got a Dubaru Forester but I wish we had got a mini van. 

Hello my name is mat and I'm 28 and yes I want a mini van. Is that weird?

So long till next time
