Traveling with My Toddler

The overly packed suitcases, zip lock bags full of snacks, fully charged kindle, and newly opened sticker activity books. All the traveling essentials for a toddler trip! It can be overwhelming before you even get started. On our recent trip with our 2 year old, our vehicle was embarrassingly full. Its hard to know what […]

Handle Car Sickness Like a Pro!

It was a sunny, beautiful summer morning.  I packed my two boys in my car and was excited to visit my sister and her family in Rochester.  I’ve done trips by myself before with just the two boys and me, how hard could it be to take a 1 hour and 15 minute road trip […]
