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!

Florida Family vacation part3

While we were in Florida we took some time to travel around! 

One full day we drove all the way to Key West! We left the condo early and made our way! 

A 4 hour drive! 



Little k is a great traveler he loves road trips so he was excited! 



We made some stops along the way to really enjoy the views! 



It's a beautiful relaxing drive! 

When we got to Key West, we walked around, had lunch, shopped a little and went to the southernmost point of the usa! 





We also went to tour Ernest Hemingway's home in Key West! 



Fun facts! Ernest Hemingway had many cats and some with 6 toes! Those cats were considered goodluck. 



He had a working room in the backyard. Like a man cave to do his writing. He had a daily rule to write 700 words or lunch time whichever came first was all he would do. Then he would go fishing for the afternoon and then hit the bar with his friends and listen to stories that he would later use in his books! 

He lived in this home for 9 years then went to live in cuba the next 25 years! 


So much fun! Little man loved observing the property and the cats! He needed to know all their names! Ha! 
That's a 6 toed cat! 

The next day we had our next adventure. After fun at the beach and pool we decided to drive to Palm beach for the afternoon!



Ahhhhh beautiful homes!!! Donald Trump has a huge home there too! 



We walked around Worth Ave, the Rodeo drive of Palm Beach 




We had dinner and the cutest italian restsurant. Surrounded by shops And in a little garden with water fountains and benches all around. 




Palm beach is soooo nice!!!!! 

Other evening trips included a drive down to South Beach! 

We had dinner in the Art Deco
Very entertaining! Loud music, lots of people. It's happening! Ha!






And we seen Ricky Martin!!! They were filming La Banda. So cool!! 



We really enjoyed our trip to Florida!
 A perfect family getaway! I can't wait to go as a family of 4!
