Safety + parking reminder: take a picture of the kids next to the parking sign

Amazon: Palm PixiTrish's variation on a hack for lost-kid preparation at amusement parks is so simple it could apply to all sorts of travel situations. I had to "promote" it from the comments so everyone could benefit.

I take the picture of everyone standing in front of the sign where we've parked (we did Disney & Universal this way), so I have a picture of the kids & I can find the car too!

You could use this hack for airport parking lots, shopping malls, or any large parking lot (think IKEA or another big-box store). For backup, take the picture using your cell phone and send it to the other grownup in your group. That way, if your phone goes missing, you're covered.

We dress our kids alike so if one is lost we can say, he looks just like that!

There's a new way to pay for parking meters in Washington DC and all you need is a cell phone. The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) has launched a Pay by Phone parking program, a cashless payment option, at approximately 17,000 on-street metered spaces. The meters have green stickers that indicate they accept pay by phone payments.
