Tips For Potty Training While Traveling!

Disclosure:  This is a sponsored post written by my on behalf of Sposie Booster Pads, the number one brand in diaper doublers.  All opinions are entirely my own. We travel a lot, sometimes only a short distance by car and other times we will do lengthier trips.  More often than not, we bring our kids along for the adventure. When it comes to traveling with kids,  keep your expectations low and you will definitely reap the benefits. This certainly requires…

Visiting Oregon With Kids & Why You Absolutely Have To.

One year ago, we set out from the Midwest to move our family to Portland, Oregon.  My husband was in the military for several years before he went to graduate school and took the rest of us with him.  So, moving isn't something that is new to us.  Leaving the Midwest was the most challenging move we have ever made, our boys were born there and we tackled life's biggest changes there.  Above all, the community of support and great friends…

I did not grow up going on family vacations.  A family vacation for us was eating inside of the restaurant as opposed to only picking up our 39 cents Wednesday burgers through the drive thru.  My husband grew up with frugal parents who opted to travel more.  We knew that regular travel would be something of priority in our family's culture, and we are always looking for creative ways to make it happen.  Like everything else in our lives, we…

I don't think we have ever turned down an opportunity to check out an aquarium. For as long as I can remember I have found them…
