Packing For a Week at Grandma & Grandpa's

My wife and I will soon be traveling alone without our son for just the second time since he was born. The trip is partly business and partly vacation all wrapped into one. Which means he’ll be staying with grandma and grandpa for a week while we’re away. They are ecstatic about having him come visit and I’m sure he’s going to have just as much fun but packing for the week is a big undertaking.

The Only Stroller You Will Ever Need

I’m always amazed with how far strollers have come. There are some really amazing strollers out there. They do it all and come with every feature you can imagine. I won’t even tell you how many strollers I’ve purchased in my three years of motherhood. It’s embarrassing. Every time I turned around there was a bigger and better stroller – and I had to have it!

But I’ve learned now how foolish that was because there is really only one stroller that has stood the test of time. 

How We Found a Babysitter While on Vacation

As I mentioned before, we spent the week before Christmas in Whistler, Canada on a ski vacation with family. While we were excited to tackle the slopes, Wyatt just isn’t old enough to be strapping on skis and flying downhill. Since he was too young for the ski school or the daycare, we had only one other option if all the adults wanted to ski together.

4 Essentials That Made Our Long Road Trip Successful

The week before Christmas we packed up the house (at least it felt that way), loaded the car, and set off on a road trip north for a weeklong ski trip to Whistler, Canada. A beautiful winter wonderland with a drive that’s almost as stunning. It’s turned into somewhat of an every other year excursion for us, and this year was the first time Wyatt got to come along.

Traveling with a toddler is never easy. The stuff, the bulky cold weather clothes, the car activities, all had our car packed to the brim. We set off for the nine hour drive early on a Sunday morning wondering exactly how well Wyatt would do stuck in a car seat for so long?

Here’s how we succeeded.

The Magic of Christmas in NYC

I remember by first Christmas in New York City. My oldest daughter was only a few months old and we spent it in a tiny one bedroom apartment that my husband was renting until we officially moved up with him. I’d been to NYC many times before, but never this time of year. There is a magical vibe in the city that is unlike anything that I’ve ever felt before. Amongst the hustle and bustle of the city, there are lights, holiday window displays, ice skating rinks, giant Christmas trees, and more.

Even as a resident of the city, every year you still feel the need to play tourist and see all that they city has to offer. It’s even more magical when you see it through the eyes of your children.
