It’s known as the Air Capital of the World. While the aviation industry might seem that it is on the decline regarding building aircraft, centrally located Wichita, Kansas is still a hotbed for the industry.

I take packing a car seriously. It has taken a few road trips with multiple suitcases to get to this point, but I know just how to pack it all in. I have learned the in’s and out’s of our little Toyota Prius and its 14.4 cubic feet of cargo space. That was until we had our fourth. The baby might be the smallest of the bunch, but he also requires a suitcase just for him, a pack and play, stroller, and a car seat. Don’t forget the diaper bag or you might be up a creek whenever you...
