My family is headed to Arizona, otherwise known as the Valley of the Sun. We are taking a much needed family vacation – but aren’t they always needed? Ha! Getting away during school break is something we look forward to, but this time we really can’t wait. It feels like it has been the longest, coldest winter EVER. We are so ready for sunshine and warm weather!
We are flying into Phoenix and renting a car bound for Sedona, AZ. This will be our first trip to Sedona and I’m incredibly excited to explore this town! I’ve heard nothing but amazing things about Sedona, mostly about how breathtakingly beautiful it is. We are going to split our time between relaxing poolside at the resort, and taking day-trips around Sedona. High on the “must do” activities is seeing the Grand Canyon. Can’t wait!
Before I get too ahead of myself, I want to make sure that my list of pre-vacation essentials is completed. It might sound silly to make a list, but it keeps me organized and feeling happy. We’re going to be gone for a week and I have a decent list of things to take care of. There are four people to pack for, a fish (named Strawberry) to plan for, mail /packages to be held, garbage and recycling bins to be tended to, a refrigerator to clean out, etc. It didn’t seem like a lot until I actually typed everything out. I thought that if it was helpful for me, it might be for you as well.
Indispensable Pre-Vacation Checklist
I want to share my free printable pre-vacation checklist with you. Even though we are not leaving for a while, I have already printed this off and it’s on the kitchen counter as a daily reminder of my to dos. I do not want to wait until the last moment to find out that my kiddos have outgrown their swimsuits! I also added some items that don’t personally pertain to this trip (i.e. we don’t need to bring our passports this time) but might come in useful for you.
Below is the list, just click on the .pdf file at the very end and print it out! I hope you find it helpful. Happy travels!
