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

Carnival Magic Cruise pt 1


We went on our first cruise in Feb!
We flew to Orlando and spent a night there before making our way to the ship!

The boys had snacks and iPads and toys to keep them entertained on the flight.
We checked in our hotel and went straight to Cocoa Beach.

The day of our cruise we had breakfast and the local IHOP. Yummyyyy. And on our walk there, Cocoa beach firemen waved and then stopped to give the kids a gift! How nice!!

That afternoon we headed to the cruise! Check in was soo easy! Everything was smooth and that’s perfect when you are traveling with 2 Little’s.

The first thing we did was check out our room and the ship!
Awesome balcony, super comfy beds, and it was bigger than I expected.

Luggage’s fit easily under the beds too, so that saves a ton of space.

These are pics from our first day exploring the ship. Waving bye to Florida as we departed. There was mini golf and a kids camp too. Although  our kids lasted 20 mins there. It’s Just so much more fun being with mommy and daddy!
The dinners were delish! Mr K was feasting! Umm he was having salmon and lobster and steak dinners. The good news is that even tho you order entress at dinner, you can order as many as you like! So we would sometimes order one of each so we can see what was best! Yummy! The food on Carnival Magic was all around delicious.
Having a balcony was great too. Especially if the kids were napping or we were getting ready, it was nice to have the time on the balcony taking in the ocean breeze. Mr M was always up early so he loved the sunrise while sitting on the balcony.

Head over to my instagram @aka_mama_t for some mommy tips on traveling with kids!
I’ll blog Part 2 of the beautiful ports we stopped at, soon!

Nickelodeon Punta Cana! PT 1

This was our best family trip by far!
We booked this trip for our 10 year anniversary. We counted down the months and days! The kids were so excited! Who am I kidding, Mr M and I were even more excited! 


Waking up at 5am to go to the airport was so exciting. Baby M had no idea what was going on and loved every second of it.


Little k even got to meet the pilots! He told them he was finished SK and going to grade 1!  

The plane ride was good. iPads and candy for entertainment. Baby M got a little restless but napped a bit too so that helped! 





The bus to the hotel from the airport was about 30mins. 

When we arrived we were soo impressed with our room! Swim up pad suite!




Soo nice! They thought of everything here. The space was perfect. Fully stocked mini fridge with beer and pop and water and snacks! Oh and the room service. Amazing. 

 Our pool connected to the swim up bar and a snack bar too.  We would swim over for drink and food then swim back ha!

The first thing we did when we arrived was swim! Of course! When you open your sliding door to a pool! Little K said this was the best part of the trip haha. Second was the Nickelodeon aqua park! More on that soon! 

The resort was beautiful! 
Big infinity pool over looking the ocean. 



I have so much to talk about so I'll do it in parts! This is part 1! Part 2 coming soon haha.
Like how we got slimed! Yup! Little K pulled that lever to slime his family!
