Luggage? What luggage?

So what does it take for a family of five to travel? Let's complicate things a bit... and go first to Santa Fe (freezing temps and snow), then to Hawaii (warm and sunny swimsuit weather), then to San Francisco (somewhere in between). Oh - and let's make it Christmas, so that we have to move all the presents from Sweden to Santa Fe and Maui and back to Sweden via San Francisco. Then throw in a 10-year-old who refuses to share a suitcase with her brothers and the proceeds to pack her entire closet... and a 6-year-old who managed to sneak the household emergency flashlight into the suitcase (for emergencies, of course). Just to give you an idea...
  • 8 pieces of checked luggage (which are - amazingly - all on this luggage cart)
  • 4 backpacks
  • 1 roll-on bag
  • 2 computers
  • 7 iPods
  • 3 mobile phones
  • 4 nintendo DS consoles
  • 2 electronic books
And yes, you can see the boys upon arrival in Maui, t-shirts, leis - and winter boots. Where were those Crocs?
