At the start of the summer my husband and I decided to do a little mini-trip with our kids this summer. Our kids are wild, like want to scream at top of their lungs everywhere they go type wild. . . So we approached this idea with hesitation.
Nevertheless, we decided a trip to Sesame Place would need to happen. We live in upstate NY so from our house to Sesame it’s 4.5 hours. Kellan (age 3) did great in the car for the most part and really enjoyed our hotel stay. We made the hotel stay into a “big deal” for him so he loved it and swimming in the pool. Marley was a bit more difficult to please for almost 5 hours. Key item for both kids: A LOT OF SNACKS.
After doing two nights at our hotel and one day at Sesame Place we headed to the Jersey Shore! It was about an hour drive from our hotel in Princeton, NJ. We chose to rent an air BNB for our one night stay in Belmar Beach.
It rained the Tuesday we got to the shore which was kind of a bummer. I had wanted to do the aquarium in Point Pleasant, NJ but the line was CRAY, my kids and lines=hell. So we chose to just walk around on the boardwalk, played some mini-golf, ate lunch and then went to our air BNB to check in.
It cleared up Tuesday afternoon so we did get a little beach in that day. Luckily, Wednesday morning my kids woke up BRIGHT and early and it was beautiful out. We packed right up and headed to the beach at 7:00AM.
We had to head home Wednesday so we stayed at the beach a few hours. Just enough time for this lady to eat handfuls of sand while simultaneously throwing it into her hair 🙈
If you are looking for quick kid friendly trips this one was great! Message or comment if you’d like any direct recommendations about our hotel, Air BNB, places we ate, etc.
This weekend flew by and I was not prepared in any way shape or form for today to be Monday.
This post is going to be majorly centered around my husband so maybe I should introduce him.
His name is Warner and he’s pretty good. Like, at everything. Yep, one of THOSE people. He literally can not fail at anything but he makes everyone around him smile. This was us Friday night, we had dinner with friends for his birthday.
Warner is traveling for work until Wednesday. Side note, husband’s traveling for work should not be a thing. Can we all agree on this?
We spent our weekend celebrating Warner’s birthday with family. We also may have squeezed in some mini-golf and lunch time ice cream (when Dad is away, it’s do whatever to avoid meltdowns!)
I always love when bloggers share what they are currently loving, product wise. I find it super helpful so I hope to share a wide variety of things that I am loving (i.e. home products, health products, kids and parent products).
A little bit of suggestion never hurt no body…
Zoli Cup Sippy Cups
If you are not already using these cups for your toddler, get on board! They are available on Amazon as are the replacement straws. I used these with my son from 6 month – 2 years. Currently using them again with my daughter the help transition from a bottle.
Vital Proteins Collagen
I finally ordered this on Amazon after seeing it everywhere on my feed. I couldn’t be happier! No taste what so ever and I really feel like I am starting to see the results of consistently taking it in my hair and nails.
OPI Mimosa’s for Mr. & Mrs
I am obsessed with a nude/light pink nail and this is the perfect color. I was given this by a good friend when she sent me a bridesmaid’s box. I have since proceeded to paint every finger and toe nail with it.
