Ended our day with a trail run through the mountains and around the lake🌲 I love this place more and more every time we come! Are you a runner?? It’s something I’ve gotten into more lately (well kinda forced with @orangetheory closed🙃) - but Im growing to love it. Have you ever gotten done with a run and thought man I wish I hadn’t done that.... nope. Just do it✔️🤗 Clears the mind, gives me energy, and free therapy💯 http://liketk.it/2PlkK @liketoknow.it #liketkit #ltkfit

The older she gets, the more I find myself worrying about being her mom. At this age, she’ll remember everything😆😆 Am I doing it right? Am I saying the right things? Am I leading by a good example? Should I be telling her something I haven’t?... I want to do it right. But I know doing it “right” looks different for every family. I read this on Pinterest and it resonated with me... Things I want her to know as she grows up:
- Your struggles will only make you stronger - Complaining is a waste of time
- Don’t take yourself too seriously
- Your mistakes will never define you
- Stay close to God and true to yourself
- To love others, you must first love yourself
- Forge your own path, even if you’re alone💕
- In life, you can become bitter or better
- The ability to learn and change is a gift - Nothing worthwhile is ever easy - Be grateful for the sunrise
- You will gain more by giving
- Yes, you are capable💖💯

Travel Games/Activities for Kids

I picked this specific picture for this post because I feel like it accurately depicts vacation with kids at times. We were on a “glamping” trip to Meondocino, CA and it was just one of those moments. My sister said something a while back that has stuck with me – we have to call/look at family vacations as trips. If we call it a vacation, that’s exactly what we’ll look at it as and we’ll be disappointed when the crazy times arise. If we look at it as a trip and memories to create, I think we’ll lower our expectations a little and maybe even laugh off the craziness that comes with traveling with kids.

The reason for this post…

I love when I throw out a question on Instagram and ask for your guys’ advice. You always come through and provide so much good info. I think this is becoming a thing- I throw out a question, you guys answer, and I share all of the answers with y’all!

So we leave for Cabo on Sunday to spend some quality time with my dad (my brother and his girlfriend were suppose to join us too but my brother had to bow out due to work obligations). If you’re new around here, I’ve talked about how my dad was diagnosed with stage 3 prostate cancer about six – nine months ago. It’s been a long road and it was pretty scary there for a little while, we weren’t sure what the future held, but long story short, he is currently cancer free and we are obviously SO happy and relieved.

With that in mind, I asked what activities/games you all give your kids while traveling in the car/plane. Keep in mind I have a 7, 5, and 2 year old so all of these things are for kids around these ages.

So many great ideas! I picked up stickers, wiki sticks, playdoh, WOW color books, candy 😉 , and window clings for our plane ride. Wish us luck!

Oh! And check out these plush animal backpacks I got for each of my kids to carry their things. So cute and such a steal for $10 – $12 each!
