Packing up

Packing up

What’s your method of packing? For the past year and half we’ve come up with a creative method for packing.  We make packets in individual pillow-case size bags…Day 1, Day 2, Day 3, Swimming, etc. That way we are running into a hotel, we grab whatever Day pack we need, and throw it in a suitcase that is pre-packed with our toiletries and baby necessities. We disliked big suitcases that held...

How do you travel with children?

How do you travel with children?

It is a question I get a lot. We haven’t spent much time flying or doing “quick” travel around the world. However, we have logged a LOT of miles in our van with children in tow. I can’t tell you how many parents tell us they can’t go on a 4 hour road trip with their children, not to mention one of our month-long road treks where we hit up 4,000 miles.  My simple answer is...

What he failed to remember is that we were visiting during the rainy season this...

A breakdown in Mexican Customs…literally…

We took a summer vacation to the states for one month, to visit family in July!  Besides our family of five, we also took two friends from church with us…Mexican brothers whose father was American (but passed away 10 years ago), but mother is Mexican. One brother had never been to the states, and the other had only once been to the states with his dad on a roadtrip when he was 9 years old. So, it was...

There She Blows!

There She Blows!

We pulled our awesome little “Yuppie Wagon” trailer (yes–it’s really called that) up to Alaska and back last summer, then across to Georgia and back…a tire blow-out was bound to happen at some point (even though these tires were just put on in the Fall)!
