Hopefully there won't be any medical emergencies, but be prepared for all possibilities. Ask the parents for notarized authorization for any needed medical care.

If the kiddies need to take any medication you'll want to have the details written down and close at hand to make sure all is done as it should be.

If you're just looking for fun, amusement parks, water parks, cruises, or camping could be just the thing.

Planning your trip to enhance the love of a favorite hobby can be a memorable experience your grandchildren will remember for the rest of their lives.

Educational vacations to aquariums, museums, or areas of great historical significance, like the nation's capitol, will make otherwise dry information come alive for your grandkids.
