What do you like to do when the weather gets warmer? Our family loves to travel and explore new places. Our recent family adventures took us down the coast of California, over to Colorado and back up to Coeur d’Alene Idaho. We visited some of our extended family in California and stayed in our toy hauler RV trailer, which makes traveling with kids so much easier. Our RV provides our kids comfortable spaces to nap after a shopping trip and a place to rinse off after a swim at the pool. We can also wake up in the morning and make a full breakfast, saving money and reducing the hassle of eating out with little kids. Here are some of the highlights from our California glamping road trip!
The best travel destinations are places for families to make memories, get some exercise and enjoy some good old family fun. Zion National Park is a great place to visit and go on a family hike.

I’ve carried a diaper bag around for about 4 years. Now that I have a 6-year-old, it can be challenging to carry her stuff as well as baby essentials for my little son. I ditched the diaper bag awhile ago in lieu of a few diapers and a pack of wipes, except sometimes these minimal basics aren’t enough. I was excited to discover DiaperQuick, a streamlined bag that provides a clean spot to change a diaper AND holds a few essentials such as 2 to 3 diapers, wipes, a tube of diaper cream and even an extra shirt for my little man.

If you have young kids then you know that kids like to stay super active. When I’m not saving my 2-year-old from daring stunts, I’m often crafting or painting with my girls. After nap time in the afternoon my kids often enjoy some screen time. They like watching shows such as the new Netflix series from DreamWorks Animation, “Trolls: the Beat Goes On“. My girls thought the Trolls movie was colorful and memorable with an upbeat soundtrack they like to dance to. The trolls-mania continues with the release of all new episodes that continue the journey with Poppy, Branch and the rest of the Trolls Village as they embark on even more Troll-tastic adventures!
