Best Travel Apps for Toddlers & Preschoolers

Best Travel Apps for Toddlers & Preschoolers

I allow both of my toddlers access to iPads when we travel.  Whether in the car, plane, or train.  For me, it isn’t about quantity, but quality.  Are they mindlessly watching movie after movie or are they learning the alphabet, counting, shapes or colors?  I recently asked several other mothers what educational applications they love for their preschool age kids. I compiled their answers and below you will find the most recommended apps for toddlers.

How Much Does Disney World Cost for a Family of Four

How Much Does Disney World Cost for a Family of Four

We recently embarked on the ultimate adventure with toddlers; Walt Disney World. I have been skeptical of Disney since we’ve had kids. I couldn’t imagine the park, the crowds, or the lines with 2 toddlers in tow. However, we decided to take on the challenge for our son’s second birthday! I knew I wanted to try to save money where ever we could without losing anything in the experience. I called around, did some research myself and I decided to stay off property and forgo the meal plan. I have put together exactly what we spent and where we spent it.

On the Hunt for Alabama's Waterfalls with Kids

On the Hunt for Alabama's Waterfalls with Kids

Alabama has at least 25 waterfalls worth hiking out to and probably many more beyond that. We recently spent our 4 days and 3 nights Labor Day weekend camping in Northern Alabama on the hunt for some gorgeous waterfalls. We brought along our two kids; ages 3 and 1. We tent camped in Desoto State Park and in Noccalula Falls Park. Tent camping with toddlers is not for the faint of heart, but we were surprised with how well our two did. Our days were spent hiking and hunting waterfalls and our evenings were spent roasting marshmallows; a perfect trip in my opinion. We are going to share which waterfalls we visited and some tips for making the most of your Alabama adventure!

Best of New Orleans with Kids: Audubon Aquarium

Best of New Orleans with Kids: Audubon Aquarium

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!

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

"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."

Prague with Kids

Prague with Kids

"Prague is a gorgeous city in the Czech Republic with so much history.  Before our trip, we had heard many great things about this destination and we were not disappointed. We traveled before peak season and found everything to be relatively slow, but the major attractions still had A LOT of tourists – I am assuming peak season would be almost unbearable."

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."
