This year I’m taking 4 scouts and another adult with me to Disney for a quick 4 day vacation. All 4 scouts are HUGE Disney fans so it’s sure to be a lot of fun. Each scout picked a park and was tasked with planning the entire day at the park including what rides we go on and what snacks we eat. We had already booked our reservations so they didn’t have to worry about that.
To say we had fun would be an understatement. Who doesn’t enjoy a few days in Disney! For something even more special for this trip, I decided to make pins to award each scout for their bridging from Cadette to Senior and for MD aging out of Girl Scouts. I made each one themed for each scouts favorite character. I can’t wait to present each one to the scout on her park day!
This trip was even more of an adventure because it was the first trip for J with her TSlim diabetic pump! We wanted to make sure we were fully prepared so I grabbed our spare blood sugar monitor with lancets and testing strips (bottom left), enough supplies for a full pump change out (top) and glucose tabs(on right). Can’t leave home without glucose tabs. So here’s everything I brought in my J T1D kit.
Believe it or not but it all fit in this adorable pouch!
The other thing that was new is trip, I had read some reviews about a product that could keep insulin cool without being too bulky or freeze everything’s else in your bag! Since we would be going right from the airport to the park getting to our hotel room around midnight, we’d need to keep a vial of insulin cold for at least 18 hours. So I ordered the FRIO Cooling Product http://www.frioinsulincoolingcase.com/frio-duo-wallet.html
It’s this ingenious product where there’s a packet with beads inside that you soak for ten mins. Then there’s a chemical reaction that makes the beads cool, you put the packet inside the pouch along with your insulin pens or vials and there you go cool insulin!
I wrapped the pens and insulin vial in a ziplock bag
and here’s how big the pouch was with the pens and cool packet inside. Not that bad!
These pouches come in all sizes and the prices were too bad. I see lots of uses besides insulin and not just medical. Well I’ll post more each day about our trip.
Have a Magical day!
