How We Keep Our Toddler Happy While on Vacation

This week, we’re in Texas celebrating Thanksgiving and visiting family. Our trip down was a magical one and being able to spend time with family we don’t see every day is a wonderful feeling. More so, getting to see our little guy spend so much time with his Mama and Papa (Grandma & Grandpa), his Tias and Tio (Aunts and Uncle), and cousins, is a great time for him. It also means we’re staying very busy, and have to be prepared every time we head out the door.

The Magical Generosity of Strangers

Traveling during the holidays can no doubt be trying. But during our most recent flight for Thanksgiving, we got to see the magical generosity of complete strangers.

10 Tips for Flying (Coach) with Your Own Little Peter Pan

Recently I went to Disneyland with my two littles (ages 2.5 years and 5 months). We flew to California from Oregon, so it wasn’t exactly a super long flight, but as any parent who has flown with children knows, flying with children can sometimes be a little less magical than Peter Pan made it look.

It wasn’t my first time flying with a baby (I’ve flown with my daughter at least five other times), but it was my first time traveling with two kids instead of one, which made things a bit more interesting. With little ones, you can’t always predict or plan for everything (i.e. the time our flight was delayed for FOUR hours and fell well after bed time – you can imagine how that went), but I’ve found that when I put in the effort to plan ahead things definitely go better.

Here are a few tips that help me to make our flying experience go a bit more smoothly.

Why I'm Preparing for Holiday Travel Now

Getting ready to travel with children during the holidays feels a bit like an Olympic event. The prepping, the packing, all the other people — everything about it makes it feel like an epic undertaking. We’re gearing up for our big Thanksgiving travel plans, and I’m not going to lie, my heart starts beating a bit faster when I think about it.

Which is exactly why I’m following these few thoughts and tips, so we can celebrate little victories rather than dwell on the turbulence along the way.

With Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, and Christmas all coming up soon, we’re in the thick of making our holiday travel plans.

Whether we’re just going away for an overnight or staying for a few days, here are the things we can’t leave home without.
