Traveling abroad with kids: 3 things to include on your packing list

Packing for a summer vacation to Europe with kids can be daunting, to say the least. In fact, most responses to said summer plans come down to “Oh, how fun! Are you ALL going?” – to which you respond with a very hesitant “Yes” and briefly question your sanity. If the long flight isn’t enough to scare you away from planning a family trip to remember, then the thought of packing for multiple little people and all of their stuff just might. To make the most of your trip – and on the cobblestone streets of old Europe – you’ll want to pack lightly and pack efficiently.

10 Whole 30 Week Night Crock Pot Dinners

The Whole 30 can be a daunting challenge for those who are accustomed to swinging through a drive-thru, grabbing take-out, or just whipping up a pre-packaged meal for dinner. The thought of having to plan out and prepare 3 meals a day for 30 days can be discouraging. Add to that the busy lives we all lead, whether working 10 hour days or toting kids to and from school, doctor appointments, and soccer, the thought of having to cook a meal EVERY night is overwhelming. However, after completing one Whole 30 and now six more, this new, healthier way of eating has become a way of life for my family.

We don’t skimp on car seat safety.

Mommy Moments: Cruising to Disneyland with Mazda

Recently my family took a trip to Southern California. While we currently live in the Detroit area of Michigan, I was born and raised in Southern California, and half of my family still lives there. With my two young children, we make it a point to travel as a family to visit the area at least once every couple years. This time though, it was different. We didn’t really feel like we were traveling with babies any more, since my youngest is three years old, and my oldest is five. We didn’t have to schedule anything around naps, or breastfeeding breaks, or diaper changes, and that (in and of itself) was amazing. We did, however, get the opportunity to test drive a Mazda CX-9 for the week, as well as visit Disneyland with the children, and I’m here to tell you all about that experience today.

24 Easy Family Vacation #TravelHacks

As summer approaches, many families begin to plan family vacations. We dream of fun at theme parks, exciting adventures around the country, or a relaxing vacation at the beach. All of those things sound wonderful – in theory – until you realize you have to actually get to the vacation spot before you can enjoy all of those things. And even when you get there, there is the headache of all the gear you have to carry, making sure everyone has snacks (we don’t want any hangry toddlers after all), and generally trying to keep everyone happy, all while making sure you catch brief moments of joy to share on social media so you can prove that you did, indeed, have a good time with your family. Experienced parents know that fun family vacations are do-able if you have the right #lifehacks up your sleeve. Below are some of the best travel tricks and tips for a headache-free family vacation.

Stroller Guide: Carry it ALL on-the-go with Summer Infant 3Dtote

Parents love umbrella strollers; they’re lightweight, compact, and convenient, but more often than not they’re only feasible for carrying a kid. Sure, for all intents and purposes, a stroller is made for just carrying a kid, but we all know that kids don’t just come with cute little toes and pudgy bellies; they also pack a punch with sippy cups, ten thousand bags of snacks, toys, diapers, and a slew of other “necessities” to make a simple ride in a stroller a success. So, when we found the Summer Infant 3Dtote umbrella stroller that boasts an enormous storage capacity – even larger than some full size stroller’s! – we were giddy and relieved that finally we would be able to carry it all, everywhere we went… oh yeah, plus the kid.
