Traveling to fancy towns can be a little tricky with kids. For example, it’s not as easy to go to a classy restaurant or shop at boutique stores with a gaggle of toddlers. But when we travel, we have our 3 small children in tow. Here are some fun family-friendly activities we found in the gorgeous California town of Carmel by the Sea.
Summer weather comes with bugs, and hiking with kids comes with scraped knees. I’m excited to share some natural solutions to both of these problems, as well as our fun DIY feather embellished hair accessories!
This summer we took a trip down the West Coast with our young family. We choose budget-friendly destinations that would be interesting and feasible for young kids to enjoy. We enjoyed forest hikes and picnic lunches, walked along fern-lined canyons and deserted beaches, and visited several gorgeous vineyards. Here are some of our favorite stops in Washington and Oregon that were fun, inexpensive, and memorable for us to visit with kids.
We love exploring new places with our kids. I’m excited to share the highlights from our family visit to Mount St. Helens lava tubes and Ape Cave in Washington State.
This spring we had a chance to visit the Vancouver Aquarium in Canada. My kids had a lot of fun learning about many different sea creatures and observing a wide variety of fish and marines animals up close!
Traveling with young kids or even going shopping can be tricky. As soon as we had our 3rd child, we knew we needed to figure out some creative ways to escape the house with 3 kids. I wasn’t eager to leave the house with a newborn and two toddlers, so for a few months I only did errands if my husband could watch at least one child. Slowly I got used to the idea and now it’s a lot easier to take all three kids with me but I’ve still experienced some near-impossible events of having to corral the kids through the parking lot or chase them down while holding my purse and a baby. I’ve found the most effective way to keep track of my two toddlers is to trap them in the stroller, or let my more responsible daughter walk and trap my 2-year-old and 1-year-old in the stroller. I absolutely love our Joovy Caboose Ultralight. It has everything; seats, platforms, secure restraints, pockets, pouches, storage areas, and it easily folds up to fit in the trunk of my Civic. It feels just as streamlined as a regular stroller except that it fits two kids! I’m excited to share why I love this stroller, a basic essential for any family who enjoys getting out with young kids!
Our family loves going on adventures. We have 3 young kids which can make it challenging to find the right adventures to go on. Our recent family trip took us to Seattle where we visited one of our favorite places, the Woodland Park Zoo!
