    Yes I thought of this idea, but even 45 16 oz mugs is alot to carry, they arrived in two big boxes yesterday. I also have been told that the DR might try to ding me with taxes, saying that I brought the cups to sell while there. They have a cladagh symbol with Friendship, Love, Loyalty over the symbol and Dominican Republic under it. These insulated travel mugs are very popular in the DR, so selling them wouldn't be a far fetched idea. I am going to phone the airline and enquire about that idea though, because it is a good one.

    It is actually reccomended that if your child is under a certain weight you bring their car seat. I just don't know if I want it on the plane or not. So many decisions!!

        Kelly, you should be the first, you have enough to deal with, plus why bring them down there if your in laws are being iffy about showing up...

          Yeah your right Christine, okay I am going to stop worrying there are too many other things to worry about. I am going to try and remember that this is about Everton, me, and the kids, and to hell with everything else.

            Kelly I'm sorry this is so late but I am seeing this post for the first time now. Why can't you ship everything down? Would that be crazy expensive? Did you ask any family members if they have space? Also, I can't remember who but I think someone on this forum said that they gave their OOT bags at the barbecue prior to leaving no? Hmm let me see if I can remember who this was.

              For my friends wedding last year, she gave out bags in advance, I think the week before. I brought mine, and so did all the BM's, but a lot of other people did not. I am sure Dawn did not tell them she wanted them to bring them though, its just the way she is, but she did want them to. I would say more than half the people left them at home. Sorry, I wish I had better news for you.

              But, I think if you tell everyone they should bring them along, they probably would.

                Julie, all I really care about is the cups I had made.

                I thought of just bringing the cups Glenda, or shipping everything down down but I have heard nightrmares of problems. The cup problem is that I could get dinged for taxes`with 45 cups thinking I am going to sell them. Apparently the cups are a huge selling item in the DR, go figure!!
