36 Hours in Montreal with Kids

36 Hours in Montreal with Kids

"Our trip was a whirlwind and there is so much more of Montreal I would love to see.  However, if you only have a short stopover, it's totally worth getting out and seeing this beautiful city.  You won't be disappointed." Tavia

Best of New Orleans with Kids: Audubon Zoo

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!

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."

Kid Friendly Krakow

Kid Friendly Krakow

"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."

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."

Traveling Through the Trimesters & with a Baby

Traveling Through the Trimesters & with a Baby

"Since becoming a family of three we have found new ways to enjoy ourselves. We no longer spend our nights exploring the local bar scene, but we now have a new travel tradition that we love: we always eat dinner together in the hallway of our hotel while our baby sleeps.  We have ordered carry out and room service, but we still sit together where we can talk and enjoy each other’s company.  Traveling has always been a way for us to connect and this is a new quirk that we both get a kick out of.  It sounds silly, but it’s ours and we love it. We have adapted to this new normal.  Life with a baby is different that life without one.  Life with two babies will be even more different, but I know when this baby gets here we will settle in like all families do.  Our life will go on and be twice as exciting as it is now."

GUEST POST: Allie - Two For the Road

GUEST POST: Allie - Two For the Road

I’m Allie, first time mom of two wild, crazy twin boys named Brooks and Reagan, living on the Eastern Shore of Virginia. I graduated from Virginia Tech in 2009 with degrees in Marketing, Art History, and Global Business, and a hunky surfer boyfriend from Chincoteague Island.  During college I spent time traveling Europe, which sparked a huge wanderlust in my soul. I married my surfer in 2012, and to our surprise we welcomed not one but TWO new members to our family on December 30th, 2014.  I’m blessed to have two jobs that allow me the flexibility to work from home, and allow me the opportunity to travel frequently.  While most of our travel to date has been confined mostly to car trips, I can’t wait to start branching out and showing my boys the big, beautiful world we live in.
