    Best Lightweight Travel Stroller | Évolur Voyager Review

    Looking for the best lightweight travel stroller for your traveling toddler? When my husband and I first became parents, we knew we wanted to invest in some items that would make traveling with our baby easier. We knew that we would be traveling the world with our little one, so baby gear that was lightweight and compact was important to us.

    Best Backpack for Traveling with Toddlers

    Are you a traveling parent who is on the hunt for the best backpack for traveling with your toddlers? I’m so excited to tell you all about our family’s new favorite travel backpack- the NOMATIC Travel Pack! Our daughter is (almost) 2 years old and is constantly on the move. My husband and I have always preferred to wear backpacks (versus other bag styles) to haul our stuff around, because it is necessary to keep our hands free when we are out-and-about with our daughter. Backpacks are typically easier on our bodies too, as it is more comfortable to disperse the bag weight evenly across our backs, rather than lugging…

    Things to do on the North Shore, Oahu

    Aloha! Are you heading to Oahu soon? You’ll definitely want to schedule in time on the beautiful North Shore. While it is known for its big waves (perfect for surfers), there are several other incredible things to do on the North Shore of Oahu. Our family of 3 recently spent time on the North Shore as part of our trip to the beautiful Hawaiian island of Oahu, and we loved every minute. Although we stayed on the East Shore for most of our trip, Oahu is very drive-able, so it was easy to drive to the North Shore when we wanted.
