Matador Droplet Dry Bag

Matador Droplet Dry Bag

I just had to share another goodie that I purchased from Matador: the Droplet Dry Bag. Almost ALL parents have had a time in their child’s lives where they have needed a dry bag; a bag to hold wet things, wet clothes, a wet cloth diaper, a wet blanket. It doesn’t matter what substance made [...]

Comparing Travel Booster Seats: mifold vs. Bubble Bum

Comparing Travel Booster Seats: mifold vs. Bubble Bum

We’re a family that travels quite a bit by air and I’m sure all of us parents can agree that flying with a convertible car seat or a high-back booster seat can be a huge pain. There’s the stress of having to carry it along with your luggage all while wrangling your kids. There’s also [...]

Matador Mini Pocket and 2.0 Blankets

I first discovered this brand when cruising the Outdoor Retailer trade show in Salt Lake City this summer. I watched a video that promoted many of their products and I immediately thought, “what great products for parents!” They make backpacks, hip packs, blankets, wet bags, and more that can be scrunched and folded down into [...]

Snapshots – Episode 4: The Golden Spike

Snapshots – Episode 4: The Golden Spike

I love history. If I see a historical marker along the side of the road, I try my best to stop and check it out. When we moved to Utah four years ago, I knew that here was where The Golden Spike was driven, joining two railroads to create the Transcontinental Railroad in 1869. Checking [...]

Traveling: Asian Vacation with Our 3-Year-Old

Who says that once you have kids, you can’t travel anymore? Back in October of 2012, my husband and I spent two and a half weeks in Hong Kong, Macau and Hainan, China with our three year old son, TJ. Even though we are all experienced travellers, I was a little worried about how our [...]

Packing with Kids: Crossing the Border

Packing with Kids: Crossing the Border

My husband and I have traveled at least 60 plus times from Ontario, where we currently live, to New Jersey, where I am from. We know the trip like the back of our hands and don’t need a GPS or directions anymore. After we had our daughter, Anna, in June 2011, we planned our first [...]
