Tuesday Tips & Questions: Volume 24

September 10, 2019

Happy Tuesday! I’m still enjoying all the family time on the beach but wanted to share my weekly Tuesday Tips & Questions including a question about maternity clothes + family travel questions & tips!

QUESTIONS

Q: Where did you shop for maternity clothes?

A: ASOS Maternity, H&M Maternity , Nordstrom Maternity , Madewell Maternity, ShopBop Maternity

Q: What headphones were the kids wearing on the plane? iPad case?

A: Kids set up: iPad, iPad case, headphones

Q: What apps do the kids use on iPad?

  • A: Lego for Kids
  • Netflix & Amazon Prime (download shows so you can watch without wifi) — the kids love “Daniel the Tiger” right now 🙂 
  • PBS Kids
  • ​PeppA Pig App
  • Kids Learning Games
  • Kid Puzzles
  • Endless Reader
  • Sago Mini World
  • ABC Animal Adventures
  • ​Laugh and Learn

Q: Does your travel stroller fit on airplanes in overhead bin so you don’t have to check it?

A: Yes, it does fit in most overhead bins! Our lightweight travel stroller can be found here.

Q: Do you workout on vacation?

A: Yes & no. I don’t do my normal 45min-1hr workout, but I also don’t sit around all day. We walk to dinner (when possible), swim with the kids, chase children around 🙂 It is a nice break from high-intensity workouts though.

Q: Details on your travel look?

leggings // sweatshirt (TTS) // Tee // Sneakers // Bag // Belt Bag (this did not count as a carry on!) // Stroller (fits in overhead on most planes)

TIPS

  • Have each kid carry their own backpack with a few activities (coloring book, crayons, sticker books…), small toys, water bottle & snacks. Then it’s on them and you don’t have to dig through your bag for those items.
  • Save a few travel activities/small figurine toys/snacks for the way home. This way, they’re “new” and you don’t have to buy them at the airport.
  • Before you leave for a trip check with your resort to see what kids activities & programs they have. Many larger resorts have a Kids Club and you can check your kids in there for a couple of hours if you want to go on an adult only adventure or have a date night!
  • Shared more “Traveling with Kids” tips here. **We did switch to iPads for this trip and being able to download shows from Netflix was great & they were more user friendly for us.

LINKS I’M LOVING

  1. Passport/Card Travel Set – perfect to keep everyones passports & travel documents in 1 place. I keep this in my carry-on.
  2. Star Hoops // Wearing these on vacation! Love the star detail.
  3. Over-Sized Sweater Dress // I love a good sweater dress and this one is a great length!
  4. Gilded Vases // These would be so pretty to bring in for Fall – a little grouping on a coffee table, side table or shelf. I would leave empty or add eucalyptus or airy pampas grass stems.

If you have any other travel questions or questions about our trip, please let me know and I will answer them next Tuesday!
