Welcome! I’m Lauren!

Hello there! I’m Lauren, married to my husband, Tom, and the proud mom of four amazing kiddos – McKenzie, Logan, Alyssa, and Hannah. My days are full of joyful chaos, rich with the sounds of laughter, and frequently powered by copious amounts of coffee. Come join us on our adventures so you can plan fun adventures and trips with your kids to make amazing memories too!

Traveling is one of my greatest passions. It’s not just about visiting new places, but it’s about the learning and growth that comes with it. Every journey is an opportunity to create unforgettable memories and share new experiences with my family. We believe that the world is our classroom, and every trip is a new lesson.

But let’s be real, planning a trip that appeals to everyone in the family is often a daunting task. From choosing kid-friendly destinations to finding activities that cater to the various age groups and interests of my children, it can be quite a challenge. It was this common struggle that inspired me to start my blog.

Through my blog, I want to connect with other parents facing the same challenges and share with them all the valuable insights and travel hacks I’ve gathered over the years. My aim is to transform my personal travel experiences into useful, practical advice for families planning their own adventures.

You may have seen us around the internet for a while, as we have a recipe blog and a kid’s crafts and activities blog. But a big part of the things we love is also traveling.

We love to travel and we love to explore new places. When we travel we go looking for the best places to visit with kids and the best things to do with kids in different places.

I know that as a mom looking for a place to take a trip that the whole family will enjoy can be a challenge and I started this blog to help other parents like me.
