We're going on vacation to the beach next September. This is our first family vacation, and DS will be around 18m old. I was just thinking about all the stuff we're going to need to pack into our SUV (Mazda CX9) and I have absolutely NO idea how it's all going to fit! We don't have a roof rack or anything either.

We're planning on taking one of those plastic wagons, our BOB stroller, luggage (obviously), sheets/towels, food for the week..... I am a planner by nature, but DH thinks I'm crazy for thinking about this so early.

Have you taken car trips with lots of luggage?? How did it all work out?
