Okay, so next week we are driving down to NC for a few days. I'm nervous that I'm going to forget something, so I'm asking for some advice. What would you take with you for a 5 day trip with 7 month old twins? I'm hoping one of you will give me an AHA moment!

Here's what I have so far:
swim diapers
beach towels
sunscreen
baby bug spray
a few jars of food (I make my own and will be using that, but we didn't want to deal with that for the drive there and back)

I've done a trip like that several times.

One thing I always take is one bouncy seat and our travel swing! They have been lifesavers once we reach our destination.

My kids usually do go for the first 5-6 hours. then after that it's not so good. SO we try to split up the trip.. or take a long break on the drive around hr 5 just to get them out of the car..

We're actually taking the pack-n-play from my parent's house so that they each have a place to sleep. I'm hoping it's not going to take us more than 6 hours because we have to be there at a certain time to pick up the keys.
