Packing for the Plane

We are all excited to be heading to Minneapolis this Tuesday to visit my sister’s family.  Jacob is super excited to see his cousins.  Gretchen can’t wait to get her little hands on little Evie. 

What we are not excited about is the airplane ride.  Jacob sitting for 3.5 hours.  Yeah right.  Hopefully all the other passengers will have patience and understanding.

Here is what we are packing for Jacob for the plane ride.


Sippy cup

Snacks: Goldfish crackers, yogurt melts, dried fruit, pears, graham crackers

3 Old favorite books

3 New books

2 DVD’s

3 Straws

1 Package of stickers

4 Finger puppets

1 Slinky

1 Soft, spiky ball

1 Elmo cell phone toy

1 Ball toy

1 Monkey

1 Lovey

1 Hat

1 Empty Tupperware container

I think that is it and I hope it’s enough!


  1. It won't be...don't worry. My kids never played with the toys I packed for them. They liked the airplane magazines and safety pamphlets. : ) Hopefully he'll watch a video and Evie will sleep. There's always walking up and back and up and back and up and back down the aisle. Devin's job. Can't wait to see you!

  2. Best of luck to you, praying it goes well!!

  3. Should have brought a designated child care aviation assistant for the task. Oh well!

  4. Good luck on the plane! Have a lovely trip, enjoy yourselves.

  5. oh my goodness :) it looks like you are all set!! plenty of treats to keep Jacob entertained! hey, I still have that dvd player if you're interested :)
    have a great flight and Happy Thanksgiving!!
