Road Trip Games

We’re a family that loves to travel- whether it’s a plane ride away or car ride away. And we go on plenty of car rides. We recently did our yearly camping trip to North-South Lake Campgrounds and had a fabulous time! Many people really don’t like car rides especially long ones with children who just bring on the nerves. Sure, Barbie dolls, action-figures, coloring books and electronics can keep them…

Things to do in Tulum Mexico

After a blissful five day in Tulum Mexico (without any kids may I add), I’m back! I ended up going for my best friend’s Bachelorette party and I’m so glad I decided to go. It was something special for her, but also a nice mental break from #momlife. Tulum is a secluded paradise full of hidden jewels. I was surprised at how beautiful everything was and also very surprised that…

You may remember a few months ago where I attempted to potty train Gunner, my second born. You may also remember how miserably I failed. Oh, you missed all the fun? Watch it here.

Disney’s Toy Story 4 Storyline and Trailer

If you’re a 90’s kid, I’m sure you’re feeling super nostalgic about the Toy Story franchise continuing their films into 2019. Ziana Eliz and Gunner are even growing up on all our favorite Disney films! However, although many loved the other films, some do believe that Toy Story 4 is unnecessary.
