Do you have a tip on cooking, cleaning, homemaking, kids, marriage, travel or anything that you would love to share? Feel free to join in!


It's the time to start planning the family vacations, but it's always hard when you have to take into account something inexpensive AND interesting for the kids. So here are some tips for travel:

1 - For Car travel, here are some fun things to keep them entertained

2 - One thing we do on long car trips is to print out a map of our destination and the route to get there, the kids love crossing off the towns as we drive by and it gives them a sense on how close we are to arriving.

3 - Check out
Traveling Series, you can find info on anything to start your vacation planning. From Camping basics to traveling checklists and even currency converter.

4 - Traveling USA is another great resource for vacation planning. You can even find a whole section on traveling with your pet, how cool is that? You no longer need to leave your friends at home with someone else, you can take them with you.

5 - And here's another one,
All Traveling Kids Family Vacations. Chock full of info.

Planning a trip can be exhausting for the parents and it can become overwhelming when you're trying to take into consideration the expenses and all the thousands of places you could go....but that's why I always use these kinds of sites, at least I have fun while doing it.

Great tips! Our family traveled back and forth from MS to MI many times. We playes games such as I Spy but outside of the car. We learned that Kentucky Blue really is blue. Now that Tom and I ride motorcycles it's much better. I love the scenery. Kae

I really would like for Danny & I to go to Alaska in August but it seems for me to get the best prices I would need to place my order by March. I think its gonna take me a good 6 months to get it together. Gonna check out those sites you listed. Thanks.

Great idea about making a map with the names of towns to cross off. We'll be making a 9-hour trip in a couple of months and I think my 5-year-old would love it!
