'Hope for the best, but prepare for the worst' -- A good life motto that can apply to many things.
As a parent, I've found this to be an especially important phrase. I mean, what if the kid has a diaper blowout and needs a change of clothes? Or worse - your child gets a scrape on a dirty playground and you need a bandage and antiseptic wipes. You hope these things never happen, but they often do (especially when you find yourself unprepared, right?)
The same is true with family travel. No one wants to have a tire blowout or airport detention, so we take steps to ensure our safety and sanity as we step out to explore this great big world. My family is no stranger to the unexpected when it comes to our family travel adventures, so I thought it would be wise to share some of the ways that we prepare for these little tragedies.

Last week, my parents and nephew drove down from North Georgia to visit Stone Mountain Park with us for Spring FUN Break. I can agree that we all had a lot of FUN - all caps because, why not?! We saw a live bird show that had Read More
My family and I recently had the opportunity to visit LEGOLAND Discovery Center Atlanta to see the new Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace MINILAND attraction. This new addition is located in the same area as last year's Ninjago Laser Maze, and though it is small, it is packed with Force-filled fun.
I'm only going to share a couple of pictures because I don't want to spoil the fun for any of my fellow Star Wars fans. Take a peek and let me know what you think about this new addition! Read More

My love for the Disney Parks began when I was a child, so it's no surprise that some of my favorite vacation memories include traveling to Walt Disney World with my parents. We have had a lot of fun exploring the theme parks, especially Magic Kingdom Park and Epcot.
My parents enjoy posing for photos around World Showcase: Read More
