    We're going to surprise our kids (8&7)! I'd love to tell them the morning we leave. Does anyone have experience secretly packing for their kids? I'm afraid I'll pack and they'll need something. Our flight is early a.m., we need to be packed b4 bed.

    Hi Jeff!

    We're doing the same thing with our kids (for the first time this year), and I've been stressing over the packing as well!  At our house, I normally start packing for our family of 5 a full week before departure, so I'm going to start holding back clothes a few items at a time, and if they ask about a certain shirt, or outfit, it'll be "in the wash" (WINK WINK).

    I also suspect that the night before, I'll be sneaking into rooms to grab those last minute items.  I've also planned to buy the kids a few special shirts to wear on our vacation, so those will be a surprise when they open up the suitcases once we arrive.  

    Have a magical vacation!
