We let the kids play on the beach in their jammies this morning. They made castles, found beautiful shells, and played with a girl camping next to us. Ty and I finished packing and just enjoyed waking up at the beach for our final day. – We finally packed up and started the long drive […]

Anchorage to New Zealand – Travel Days

Thursday night/Friday morning we woke the kids up for our flight at 1:30am. We’re big believers in letting the kids get whatever sleep they can at home before a late flight. They will still sleep on the plane. The flight that started this adventure was a $400 from Seattle to Auckland. So he then found […]

We woke up early like usual. Had a bit of bagels and fruit in our room. Packed up a bit and headed to the beach to meet our Colorado friends. They had brought an inflatable SUP board along with full face snorkel masks. The SUP and the full face snorkel were awesome! I’m not a […]

Traveling to Boston

So here’s where I fully admit, this trip is ridiculous. We scheduled a trip from Anchorage to Boston and back for the weekend. Leaving Thursday night and arriving back, very early Monday morning. But we like to explore big cities, our kids are very good travelers, and Ty found a good deal. So we left […]

Stockholm to New York to Anchorage Travel Day

I’m so terrible about finishing blogging about our trips in a timely manner. Sorry for leaving everyone hanging, I’m sure you’re all on pins and needles. Wondering, how did the Hamptons end their trip?! Did L get sick again?! 😉 Well the answer to the last question is yes! 🙄 L thankfully slept through the […]

We’ve made it to country #5! We had to wake up at6:45am. Tried to get the kids to eat a few muffins or cereal before our driver arrived at 7:30. We triple checked the apartment before leaving 😉 and we were off for the airport. Check in went smoothly and like we’ve experienced most everywhere […]

Bratislava to Prague Travel Day

We lucked out with free hotel breakfast again this morning. The European breakfast buffet is quite the spread! Crepes, waffles, omelets, muffins, smoked salmon, yogurt, cakes, cookies, fresh fruit, and on and on. So many options! We were also the family getting snickered at for wearing our hotel slippers to breakfast. But when you only […]
