5 Things to Pack for your Next Roadtrip

One of our favorite things to do in the summer is road trip as a family. We love seeing new places and now that Aimery is getting older, we feel more comfortable driving 2+ hours a way! We recently took a road trip to visit family friends in Maryland! Luckily my friends have a pool where we were able to hangout during the heatwave last week. No matter where we go, near and far, we always make sure to pack our Road Trip essentials! Keep reading for 5 of our road trip essentials!

Beautiful Heated Outdoor Pool Eden Resort in Lancaster, PA

Over a month ago, we were working on a secret project for a popsicle company. They needed us to shoot campaign content in early May, so it was really hard for us to find somewhere with an open pool! Thankfully, Eden Resort opened their outdoor heated pool and Kidz Water Zone the weekend before, so we were able to book a night at their resort to create content. Eden Resort is just a short 30 minute drive from our home, and I absolutely loved being able to get away for the night without all of the travel that comes with normal vacations! I never understood the concept of a staycation until our trip to Eden, but let me tell ya, I’m a huge fan! ESPECIALLY with kids, staycations are where it’s at!

Family-Friendly Encore Resort in Orlando, Florida

A couple weeks ago we traveled to Orlando to spend the week with some of my best blogger friends and their families. We stayed together in an eight bedroom house at Encore Resort with our own private pool, and it was just the vacation I needed! It was so fun being able to finally meet the girls I have been following on Instagram for over a year. Most of our kids were around the same age, so it was great having them all together to play in the pool. And of course, I loved being able to spend quality time with Aimery.

Kalahari Resort - America's Largest Indoor Waterpark

Last month, we traveled a few hours to stay at Kalahari Resorts in the Pocono Mountains to celebrate National Waterpark Day!

7 Things Moms Should Pack in Their Beach Bag

My favorite part of the summer is heading to the beach. Some days, I really do miss living in Antigua and Florida because I had the opportunity to hit the beach every single day! Although we aren't living anywhere close to the ocean now, my goal was to take Aimery to the beach at least two times! Last month we went to Atlantic City and had a total blast! When I pack for our beach trips, I really try to pack minimally so I'm not lugging around 1000 things while keeping up with a toddler. I've talked before about what to pack for trips to the water with kids, but what about essentials for us moms? Keep reading for 7 things you MUST pack in your beach bag!

How to Survive a Road Trip with a Toddler and NOT Go Insane

I'm pretty sure there should be a rule that road trips with toddlers should never happen, ever. It's almost as bad as flying with them alone. But it is inevitable that we as parents will be locked in a car for over three hours with a toddler at some point of our lives. Aimery and I tend to do these often because we live what seems to be in-the-middle-of-no-where Pennsylvania where to get to any large city or beach takes at least two hours of driving. It seems like we are going on a long drive at least once every other week - whether we are heading to the airport or going to the beach. But through it all, I think I have finally mastered how to survive on a road trip with Aimery.

What to Pack for a Lake Trip with Kids

Some of my favorite childhood moments were those spent at the lake. Growing up, my family always went to Deep Creek Lake with our family and friends for a week out of the summer. It was always a lazy, lots of jet skiing week filled with fun memories. When all the kids grew up and life got in the way, trips to the lake every summer weren't a priority with everything else going on. We actually haven't been to that lake in years! I'm SO excited though, because my parents decided to book a lake house for a week this August. Aimery will finally be able to have the same experiences that I did when I was younger, and I'm really looking forward to experiencing Deep Creek Lake with him.

How to Survive Traveling Alone with a Toddler

Aimery and I do a lot of traveling together - we are always going somewhere! Over the last two months, we did two international trips to Canada to visit Aimery's father. We have decided that right now it's best if Aimery and I travel up to Canada together for visits. After our last weekend visit, I'm pretty confident that I (kind of) know what I'm doing while traveling with a toddler! But let me just say, traveling with a toddler is NOT easy. And doing it alone? Almost impossible. Keep reading to find ways to make traveling less stressful for both yourself and your little one.
