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

My must haves when traveling with baby

Like I mentioned in yesterday's post, I had 3 days to plan a vacation. I didn't have just myself to think about, packing for baby k is a big job!

Thinking of what to bring for baby k I categorized them by,

Clothes/personal items

I then went through what I thought a day would be like and made sure I had all parts of the day covered. Meals, clothing day and night, swim gear etc ;)

I over packed on the meds part haha I just think of different scenarios and pack it all. Baby Tylenol, benedryl, Camilla, polysporin, bandaids, spectra for kids, desitin for diaper rash. Aveeno baby sunblock.

Luckily I didn't need to use any! Well other than the sunblock which he had lathered on him many times throughout the day. Along with a sun hat.

I packed the Tylenol in my carry on just in case.

Diapers check, wipes check oh and hand and face wipes that I carried in my purse a must have all day everyday to keep the germs away.

I knew the travel time was going to be long so I had to make sure I packed his sippy cup and snacks, diaper and wipes in my carry on. (Like any regular day ha)

Snacks like gold fish, cereal bars and puffs and even the baby purée pkg, I was surprised that he had a few and liked them. Made me feel better that he wasn't going hungry while in the plane and bus. Especially when we were going, everything was delayed and the trip was longer than expected.

When it came to toys, I wasn't going to pack all his favorite toys.. We were over in our baggage weight to begin with ha!

Beach toys were a must... A few other toys that were light and easy to bring. On pthe plane, our phones and iPad was what really kept him entertained the whole trip, that and looking out the window he loved that.

Baby K was a great traveler, and even though the travel day was long, going and coming thankfully it all went smooth!

3 more months!

Eek! It's 3 more months then it's back to work!! Baby K will be headed to daycare. We have so much to prepare for the next 3 months. Paperwork for daycare paperwork for work yuk!

Staying at home with the baby is just as hard some days as being a working mom. Both has it's pro's and con's. Although I would love to stay home with little K, I know the daycare I chose is a great fit for him. He will learn a lot and make lots of friends too. I am sure that I will be the one having a harder time getting use to it than him ha!

We are planning a family vacation before I go back. A much much needed vacation!

Have you traveled with your little one? Any tips?

Ahhhh the ocean!
