Getting the Most Out of a Family Vacation

Getting the Most Out of a Family Vacation

Family vacations are meant to bring loved ones together on an adventure of a lifetime. Without proper planning, however, these getaways can be more stressful than relaxing. It's possible to have a spectacular vacation on nearly any budget when travelers consider their interests and plan itineraries several months before the trip. Get the most out of a family vacation by following a few simple guidelines.

jj rabbit utensils for little hands & Giveaway

Bug is at that age where he is trying to feed himself, but, he's not very successful. He can't get the spoon right and then gives up and tosses it all. Recently I got the opportunity for Bug to try the jj rabbit utensils set that is made from plants so they are BPA and PVC free. The spoon and fork are curved for little ones that are learning to self feed. Bug has the jj rabbit dipPLATE, ergo fork and spoon and the hidden rabbit cuppies

Easy School Mornings thanks to Ready to Bake

If your family is like mine then school mornings are rushed and crazy. Sometimes the boys are grabbing something to eat and taking it with them on the way to school. I try to keep healthy foods around for the kids to eat in the mornings that are quick and easy for them to grab and go if needed. Now thanks to the Ready-To-Bake mixes I can easily have muffins for them to eat on the way or delicious snacks for them for after school.

All in 1 school supplies with Blum

It is hard to believe but Sweet Pea will be attending Pre-K this year. Oh where has time gone my little girl is starting school. She is super excited and can not wait for her upcoming first day. Now I get the great stress of getting 3 children school supplies. I really dislike big crowds and having to try and squeeze your way through to get what you need. Now thanks to Blum I won't have to do that to get Sweet Pea's school supplies.

Drink easy with Juice In the Box

My kids love taking drinks with them when we go places and I usually allow them to, but I hate when the drinks get spilled in the car. Now thanks to Juice in the Box the kids can easily take a drink with them and I don't have to worry about them getting spilled and not cleaned up.

Preparing school supplies with Mabels Lables

One thing that I have always hated was labeling all the school supplies. I would use permanent marker and depending on the supply it would rub off or smear. I saw that other parents were using super cute labels on their childrens' supplies and I always wondered where they got them at. Then I discovered mabel's labels and fell in love with their cute designs.

Save your seats with #DevotedDoggy

Do your pets love to go for car rides? I know that mine do but Daisy and Cinder get car sick so they typically don't get to go for car rides. Ginger however does great in the car and gets to go for rides all the time. I would love to be able to take Daisy and Cinder more but hate cleaning up vomit out of my vehicle so I leave them home unless they have to go to the vets. Now thanks to the Devoted Doggy seat cover I can easily take Daisy or Cinder with me and not have to worry about cleaning up vomit off my seats.

Skates that grow with you

With having two very active boys we are not short of things to do outside. The boys have so many different options to play with and use while outside. But the one thing they were missing was skates. I remember growing up that my friends and I would spend the majority of our summers skating in each others driveways when we weren't at the skating rink. I still love to skate but my hubby is not a fan of it so we never go skating at the local rinks unless the kids go to a birthday at one.

Kitchen Monster Pizza Cutting

Does your family love having pizza nights? I know mine sure does especially when I make homemade pizza (it's their favorite). But one thing I also dread is cutting the pizza because our cutters never seem to cut the pizza well, so then were left trying to tear it apart even though it was cut. Now that worry is over thanks to the Kitchen Monster Pizza Cutter

On the Go with the GoPod

With Angel being 19 months now she is on the go all the time. She hates when she knows her siblings are outside and she isn't. Now thanks to the GoPod she can go outside as well and I don't have to worry about her getting into stuff. The GoPod has come in very handy this summer  while out berry picking, at picnics, parties and just being outside in the yard. Angel was able to be outside, safe and enjoying everything going on.

Blast Zone Hydro Rush Review

With summer here my children are outside a lot and always looking for something fun to do. They love playing in water and keeping cool so having our Blast Zone inflatable water parks around really helps. The Blast Zone water parks also make birthday parties a ton of fun for everyone. Our latest water slide added to our collection is the Hydro Rush Water Park.

Help Prevent Summer Learning Loss #sponsored

"I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Carson-Dellosa. I reviewed the free content on their website  to facilitate my review and a promotional item to thank me for my participation."

With summertime here I worry a lot about how much learned education my boys are losing/forgetting throughout the summer. My boys are very active and love to be outside playing and when they can't get outside they want to play video games. I am very strict on the amount of time they are allowed for video games because I do not find them educational. However I do not mind the boys getting online and going to Carson-Dellosa Summer Learning Activities website and playing educational games.

Newly Renovated Hotel Breakers {Sandusky, Ohio}

Anyone who knows me knows that I am not a fan of living in Ohio, but there are some perks to living here. One being that we are close to Cedar Point, The Roller Coaster Capital of the World! My husband and oldest son absolutely love roller coasters and are always trying to get me on them. They were thrilled when they found out about Rougarou, a new floorless roller coaster. 

Bouncin' High Toward the Sky

Growing up I loved jumping on my cousins trampoline and some of my best memories with them is being silly on the trampoline. My children have shown the same the love for the trampoline as I had. They were always disappearing to the neighbors house so they could jump on the trampoline. Now thanks to my partnership with Skywalker Trampolines my children get to enjoy their own trampoline.
