Theme parks are our jam. We absolutely love getting the chance to spend the day exploring and watching the kids just have an absolute blast. I have to be honest though. It’s been quite a long time since I’ve been to a theme park that was new to me! I had just as much fun as the boys since I was able to experience LEGOLAND for the first time with them. We didn’t know what to expect. Would it be good for toddlers? Fun for the whole family? Worth the whole day? I can definitely say that we were beyond thrilled with the time we got to spend here so I want to share it with you!
Oh to be a kid! When dressing up like your favorite animal is something people swoon over instead of giving you funny looks! My kids love to embrace their crazy and fun side and are certainly not shy. I love watching their little personalities and the joy that they find in the mundane of life. Being a kid is such a joy & getting to mother them, even more so! I am so excited to share with you an adorable new brand we came across that has clothing I am certain you will NEED for your little closets!
Summer is a blast! Summer is one of the times that absolutely everyone is looking forward to all year long, but once it’s here, are we making the best of it? Kids are out of school – but don’t let their cries of boredom stop you all from having the best summer season yet! I want to share with you some ways to make the best of each day that you can as a family this year. This summer is bound to be memorable & super sweet! Are you with me?
Siblings. It’s truly one of the craziest love-hate relationship that most have. As a mama of two boys only a year and a half apart, I witness this back and forth all day long – and it can be exhausting sometimes, but what I have learned is that there are ways to encourage fair play and sibling bonding throughout that day that can strengthen their relationship and their ability to get along. No matter how close or far apart in age your kiddos are, I am certain you will be able to apply a few of these tips into your daily routine & watch them flourish! I promise, your mama heart will melt watching them bond.
We all know how much kids require for a day out. Now throw in the unexpectedness and the excitement of Disney and there is no telling what you will need! Since we have had our kids we have been to the Disney parks at least a dozen times, so I have had some experience on what works, what you need, why you need it, and what kind of bag will be the best choice. Looking for any of those tips? I’m excited to share them with you!
If you are like me, nap times are the only mom breaks that happen during the day & the amount of STUFF I have to cram into 2 hours (if I’m lucky!) is crazy. I have realized that when I look at nap time as a time for me to do alllll the boring things, I tend not to be as productive. Instead, I’ve changed my mindset. Nap time is ME time & I am going to maximize the potential of those few hours to be as productive as possible, while still treating myself to a well-deserved MOM BREAK.
Everything Disney does is EPIC. There is simply no other word for the beauty and caredully meticulous design elemtents and state of the art technology that goes into everything they produce. Going to the Disney World parks is one of our family’s favorite activities ever! We head there for almost every special occassion from birthdays, to Valentine’s Day, and anniversaries. Some of my best memories over the past 5 years as a family have been spent here & I am thrilled to show you a new series of incredible memories we just made at the brand new Pandora – World of AVATAR at Animal Kingdom!
A day at the zoo is a day I’m in for! We love visiting local zoos as we travel and letting the kids explore each unfamiliar place with some friendly familiar animal friends. The boys seem to never get tired of watching the elephants play or the tigers roam, and I never get tired of watching their boundless energy run through the park. We were really excited to get to go to the Audubon Zoo in New Orleans last week – since we had heard such amazing reviews! It certainly did not disappoint!
