Traveling Europe with kids

Everyone thought we were crazy for traveling with the kiddos to Europe. Actually, I did too when my husband booked the trip 2 years ago! To my surprise, it was pretty smooth and the kids loved this trip! Mr K is 7 and Mr M is 3.

The hardest part of the trip was the 2 flights to get there! The flights were delayed and we ended up losing a day of travel. The kids didn’t care about timelines tho, they were loving the adventure. 


 I will dress them the same for as long as I can haha!




We had a layover in Germany on Valentine’s Day! So this was our valentines dinner, haha yummy!


We downloaded some Netflix videos and their favorite games. They slept a lot on the plane as well. This mama also packed their favorite snacks like goldfish, granola bars, raisins, lollipops. Especially if your kids have any allergies, you know it’s best to feed them products you know are safe. 

Mama  T Tip- bring all sizes of ziplock bags, that way it’s easy to pack unfinished food or separate the treats. The snack size ziplock bags were a life saver! 

Mama T Tip- I put their empty sippy cup in a ziplock bag in my purse. Then once we get in after security, I buy water to fill it up. Years ago I left water in the sippy cup as we went through security, the officer took the bottle opened it up (their gloves all over the bottle and god knows what else they touched that day) it grossed me out so much that I’m now always prepared! Empty all the sippy cups! Unless you have formula or milk for a baby of course, they allow that I believe. 

Travel time from the moment we parked our car in the park nfly to arriving at the AirBNB it was 24 hours! We were exhausted but still sooo excited! 

My husband booked the Airbnb right in the middle of the Spanish steps! It was the perfect location! The kids called it our Italy House. 

It was a 2 bedroom apartment with a kitchen, laundry, 2 bathrooms, dining room , living room and the cutest balcony! 

The elevator itself was soo fun for the kids. 




Seriously! Waking up like this was the best feeling ever! 



The weather was brisk but the sun was so bright and warm. The air was soo fresh and the sky was the bluest sky I’ve ever seen, at least that’s how it felt.


The kids woke up a little jetlag but the excitement was more than enough to get them up and going.

We found a cafe nearby and bought the most delicious croissants. We bought like 4 of them! Plus some paninis. My mouth is watering just thinking of  them haha! I packed some of the left over for the kids as we headed out to sightsee! 










I think I’ll do a post on our meals alone! More of our Italy trip to come! Have a great weekend friends! Have any questions about traveling with kids? Leave a comment or DM me on my Instagram

Christmas 2017


Christmas 2017!
Baby M really enjoyed Christmas this year. He loved the Elf on the Shelf fun. 
He talked about Santa and Baby Jesus' Birthday. Toddler stage is by far the most exciting. 
Watching these little ones learn and understand things for the first time. 
Mr K had his Grade 1 Christmas Concert. Mr Green right in the front ha!
Christmas Eve was at the usual place :) My grandparents house.
The whole family gets together for a yummy food and celebration. This year my niece and Mr K were making videos of their experience and I gotta tell you, those videos were hilarious. They made me realize how much they've grown too.


 
Christmas Morning was our family's tradition. We wake up and make a big breakfast while we open gifts. Then I prepare a Turkey Dinner! It's a PJ's Movie Day celebration. Being together and being soo thankful for 2017. 
The Mr and I even fit in a date lunch. 
We ended 2017 very relaxed! It was all about movies and togetherness this Christmas break. Well it was freezing and we had a couple snow storms that kept us in too!
We hosted New Years Eve with family and friends! Everyone had a blast! 


We even had some fun Competitions ha!

The party continued for New Years Day Breakfast!
We are soo 2018 ready! I have new blog goals, life goals, family goals etc. I love reading about everyone’s 2018 goals. I’m excited to read/hear about your 2018 goals! Send me a comment and share your goals! Next post will be on mine! Happy New Year Friends!

End of summer camping! 

This was our second annual camping trip with the kids. 

We picked a different camp site than last year. This place was an hour and a half away. The car was stuffed with our gear haha!

As soon as we arrived we set up camp! 


I think roasting marshmallows was the kids favorite thing to do. They loved the hammock too! 


The first day was warm and sunny. So we went to the beach! A short drive from the camp site. The sand was fluffy and the water so clear. The view amazing. 


It was so relaxing and the weather was perfect. 

That same night after we went to sleep all cozy in our tent. It rained all night. Which made for a chilly second day. 

Which was ok for this park because there were so many trails for exploring. 

We dressed warm and went for a nice trail walk. 

The kids were so cute walking with their sticks. Their eyes were wide and they were excited walking in nature and learning new things. I learned new things too ha! 


We had fun climbing rocks, and throwing pebbles and making wishes. 


The boys loved this! 


Camping with a toddler wasn't the easier thing. Mr in and out of everthinh kept us on our toes. 


Little K loved helping make the BBQ.


We had a fun, cozy, family time weekend with so much snuggling, 

The last night both kids fell asleep in each of our arms as we sat by the fire. It was so peaceful. Holding the boys so cold as these years go by quick! Mr K begins grade 1 tomorrow!! Baby M is talking so much and wants to be Mr independent. We cherish these times so much! 


Summer 17!
