My Favorite Spring Break Memories as a Mom

Spring break changes a bit when you become a parent. Lounging at the beach becomes a little more adventurous with a little one around!

But making these sweet memories with our little ones is such a treasure and the time is fleeting! Some of my all time favorite road trips and spring break memories include my babies.
