Harpers Ferry: 10 Tips for Planning a Trip with Kids

Harpers Ferry: 10 Tips for Planning a Trip with Kids

"We decided, this particular morning, to go to Harpers Ferry over going to Gettysburg. It was a last minute decision and I wasn't convinced it would even be worth the visit.  My step-dad described it to me as "a historical park with a city on a hill" -- and now we all know he is the WORST ever at describing awesome places.  Our time at Harpers Ferry was better than I could have ever hoped.  So much history, unbeatable nature & the weather could not have been more pleasant."

I left my Husband and Still-nursing Son in Another Country on Accident

I left my Husband and Still-nursing Son in Another Country on Accident

"...I was pretty thrilled with myself because I knew I would have time to get seats and get situated and all Jimmy would have to do is get on the train and give us food!!  PERFECT!!  We board the train. (<-- WORST decision we make all day) My parent’s grab a table and the 4 seats and take Charletta with them.  I am battling bicyclists to get our giant double stroller on the train.  After they finally get their bikes loaded and I get the stroller situated the door to the train closes and the train starts moving. IT. STARTS. DRIVING. AWAY....."

From Florida to Virginia....and Back

From Florida to Virginia....and Back

"I imagined both kids crying (and probably me) crying the entire drive and me asking myself every 10 minutes why I wanted to do it in the first place. If you think this sounds dramatic, you’ve never driven in the car with a baby/toddler who is able to cry for four or more hours straight, who didn’t sleep AT ALL on an ELEVEN hour drive from Florida to Texas, and who’s cry is the same decibel as a firing rifle. Thankfully though trip went nothing like I imagined and I am so grateful."

5 Amazing Weeks in Montgomery, Alabama

"I can not believe it's been a year since our time in Montgomery.  They say the days are long, but the years are short and this year went by in the blink of an eye.  While this trip happened a while back, it is worth it for me to share my experiences because they were so positive and we really did have such a good time."

Part Two: Braving Europe – Travel Days

Part Two: Braving Europe – Travel Days

"With a very transient trip, I tried to plan out our travel days before we even left the United States.  What I found is that you can’t always book train tickets in advance for European travel and I also learned that there are many ways to book European train tickets and it all depends on what country/region you are traveling to/from.  I spent a lot of time researching the most effective, most comfortable, and cheapest way to get from city to city.  We knew we would be carrying all of our bags plus a stroller and our baby, so we needed to be ready to pack light and move efficiently.
