Lake Placid – A Gold Medal Family Vacation

Since our boys were in summer school this year we needed to stay close to home.  But still wanting to get away, we decided to hit the road and take a long weekend up in Lake Placid. We had never been this far north, so we were excited to check out a new destination close to home.   Read more

Bubble Bum

I found this amazing new portable booster seat the Bubble Bum and I had to share.  When I traveled this summer with my boys I had to lug 2 car eats with me. It was such a pain to have to handle the seats, along with the boys and all our luggage.  It would have been so much easier if I found this easy to use booster seat.  As well I think that along with using it in rental cars, you could have it for taxi rides or even on a bus.

The seat is lightweight and compact, you can shove it in your carry-on bag and you are ready to go. When you are ready to use it you just blow it up. The seat is made for kids 4-11 years old, weighing 40-100 lbs.  and up to 57″ inches.

The Bubble Bum starts at $39.99 and also comes in Black/Silver.

I will continue my search for new and helpful gadgets and gear to help make your new family road trip or vacation that much easier and hassle free.

Flip To Win Travel Games

I know some of you will be hitting the road soon with the Easter holiday and Spring Break. Also, let’s not forget summer will soon be here.  So to make the trip a little more fun, I found these great travel games by Melissa and Doug.  I really love the Melissa and Doug products as they are so well made, educational and fun.

Flip-to-Win Hangman Game $12.99

You can take the classic game on the road. You choose the word, flip the letter an go. All the pieces stick to the board so you won’t lose them. Also comes with a dry erase pen.

Flip-to-Win Travel Bingo $19.99

A classic travel game. It comes with 2 game boards and you have up to 8 different themes to play.  Everything stores in the game boards.

Flip-to-Win Memory Game $12.99

This game comes with 2 game boards, a score card and up to 14 different themes to play. Again, everything will fit right in to the game boards for easy storage.  This is a great game for the younger kids, too.

U.S.A License Plate Travel Game $19.99

I remember playing this game on our family road trips growing up.  But we did not have this cool game board.  Again, everything sticks to the board so you won’t have pieces everywhere.   It is a great way to pass the time and learn some geography.

Happy Road Trip!!!
