As soon as we entered the Aquarium, I knew our 2-year old was going to love it. The entrance is decorated with 3 life size sharks; including a Whale Shark! After a quick stop in the lobby for a preemptive potty break, we make our way around to walk through the Great Maya Reef. I LOVE WALK-THROUGH AQUARIUMS. This surrounding view of the sharks, sting rays and fish is impressive. We walked through as three scuba divers were cleaning, feeding the fish and one was carving a pumpkin!! Yes, he was IN THE TANK carving his Halloween pumpkin! It was humorous and impressive as he had to fend off several curious sting rays!
We recently traveled to New Orleans with our 1 & 2 year old. We connected with the Audubon Institute to explore some of their attractions. We were able to visit the Audubon Zoo and the Audubon Aquarium! Both are highly recommended....even if you're traveling without kids!
We've traveled with a baby. We've traveled with a toddler. We've traveled with a baby AND toddler. We've also traveled with a lot of crappy products and a lot of REALLY HELPFUL products.
Here a list of the 25 BEST products we have used while traveling with our 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."
"There are a million options out there for Travel Cribs (AKA baby cots, pack n plays, etc). I am not even about to go into comparing them ALL to each other, but I wanted to share this option since so many of my parent-friends are struggling with their tall toddlers and where they sleep on trips!"
What are your favorite places on the Emerald Coast and surrounding areas? If it's not listed here, we want to know about it so we can see it!

"Poland was more than I ever imagined. The people are extremely friendly, the food is delicious, everything is cheap, and the sites are full of complex history. When you visit Poland, stay longer than we did. There is so much more to see and we will definitely be going back for a more expansive tour."
"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."
