When we came over for our vacation, the kids and I had three pieces of luggage. It really seemed like a lot. Brian came over with one large backpack. Now that we are heading back we have four pieces of luggage and two large backpacks. I am pretty impressed that we were able to pack most all of our Christmas presents in there too. We should have taken pictures of the mess we had trying to figure out how to pack everything, but I am not unpacking it all now for a picture.
