For our big summer vacation this year, we decided to head back to Maine. Since we fly into Boston, we thought why not spend a few days in Boston again! It is such a fun city to explore. Since we did the freedom trail last time, we decided we wanted to explore a few spots we missed.
It was easiest to hop on and hop off the Old Town Trolley tours of Boston by Historic Tours of America. We have gone on several of their tours around the country, and we really have enjoyed them! You can get a day ticket and the running trolleys will pick and drop you off at all the major stops in the city all day long, and they come every 15 minutes. With limited time in the city, I’d highly suggest it! Especially with kids who can get tired out from all the walking.
We stopped off at the USS Constitution Museum. The kids loved exploring the old ship, and seeing all the old canons, and sleeping quarters of the soldiers. I just love how interested they are in history!
Wow! It has been a minute! I blinked in January, and all of the sudden it is May! Time flies when you are having fun, as they say! This year has been flying by, and I have been traveling like crazy, which isn’t a bad thing! You all know I love to travel! I don’t think I have been home a full month this entire year so far, and some months I wasn’t home an entire week! But, I have a pocket full of memories to show for it, but not a lot of work getting done around here the past few months, ah well! No regrets!
This year so far, I have been to California three times (LA, Palm Springs, San Diego), Colorado (Vail/ Beaver Creek), and we just recently took a the kids on a family trip to Washington DC! Boy I love that city!
Getting ready for travel, I wanted to amp up my spring and summer wardrobe a bit. I always head to Evereve because they curate the best of the best brands that you see in major departments stores, but they select only the very best and make sure that there are plenty of items you can style with it! They also can help style you from head to toe with their in store stylists or, for the ultimate timesaver efficiently maximizer, you can just fill out a questionnaire on their Trendsend site, and a stylist will personally curate a box of looks just for you! Anything you don’t want, you can just mail them back to return them! So amazing for busy ladies!
Traveling with our kids is something that we are passionate about and we love to do. But, that doesn’t mean that it is necessarily easy to do. There are many things that we have to consider, plan, and prepare for in advance in order for any trip with the kids to be successful. Especially a ski vacation! Kids definitely don’t make travel any easier, but it’s a good thing they do make it more fun! We have gone on enough ski trips with our children to really have a solid plan of attack if you will to ensure a successful ski vacation with the family! But, with that being said. Yes, our kids whine, yes, our kids cry (after all, they are kids), yes, it can be hard at times, but in the end, it is always so worth it to go home with the good memories, and a deeper closeness that vacations provide to families!
If you are a family that has been toying with the idea of a ski vacation, or love to ski, but haven’t yet committed to making a vacation out of it, then please read on! Our ski vacations are some of my very favorite vacations, and while it can be a lot of planning and preparation, we always end up having a good time together during our stay!
