Tour our 2015 Flying Cloud Airstream with bunk beds and a washer and dryer combo.
Our family recently went to New Orleans. As a family of 5 we always have to be aware of what activities we pick and the overall cost. Before heading to New Orleans I started researching things to do. New Orleans is a melting pot of people and architecture. So well known for it's nightlife, day-time New Orleans doesn't usually pop up on most people's radars as a family-friendly destination. Once you actually look closely though New Orleans is a great destination for families.
On our Disney cruise Cozumel was our first port of call. I wanted to go out on our own and escape the typical cruise bubble to I started researching what else we could do during our time on the tiny island just off the coast of Mexico.
Caitlen and I checked in with the kids last night (Wednesday, Jan. 13) to the Legoland Hotel in Winter Haven, FL and it is AWESOME!!!!!!! Yes, I believe seven exclamation points are necessary. If you don't already know about the epic-ness that is this hotel, I feel I must enlighten you. Before I begin, though, you should be aware that I am not a Lego fan-boy; I do not consider myself a master-builder; and while I know what the "Kragle" is, I've not spent very much time with this "highly sophisticated interlocking brick system."
Saturday Night Lights at the Tryon International Equestrian Center is a horse show with added family fun. They happen spring, summer and fall, check the website or Facebook for their calendar of events. We have been visiting the up-state of South Carolina for the better part of a decade and this is a fantastic addition to the area. Tryon is located just over the North Carolina border. The Saturday Night Lights event runs certain Saturdays with competition starting at 8pm. The gates open at 6pm, but you should arrive even earlier to have dinner at one of the restaurants and secure the best parking.
A visit to Glacier National Park isn't complete without a trip across the Going-to-the-Sun-Road. It cuts through the park from the west side to the east side, going by Lake McDonald, through Logan's pass and all the way to St. Mary.
We finally attended an Airstream rally! After 18mths fulltime living in a Airstream we managed to hook up with dozens of other Airstreamers at the 2018 Canopener Rally at Topsail Hill Preserve State Park in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida! Topsail is one of the best state parks in Florida! Our spot was full hook-up and HUGE. If you don't want to spend much time at your spot than you can walk one of the many trails or take a stroll along the 3.5 miles of beach... but back to the rally!
My picks for what to do while visiting Bradenton, Florida (my hometown.) Anna Maria Island is just off of Bradenton on the Gulf of Mexico. Besides, your normal beach activities these are also attractions not to be missed!

How to Organize Toys in an Airstream or RV
The 2 main questions that ran through my mind when we first started this journey (in regards to the toys) were what to bring and how to organize them? I of course was also concerned that going from a TON of toys to a few toys would be traumatic, but let me just tell you it wasn't.
Going to Disney World can be so stressful. If you have never been before navigating the fastpass system, dining reservations and Disney transportation can feel like a ride on Everest that never ends. We now have 3 young children with us when we trackle a day at Disney. They range in age from 4 - 6 months old. Here are my tips for a trip to Disney World with toddlers:
When we ventured into California, high on our list of must-dos was a visit to Disneyland. The SoCal City Pass was one of the ways we discovered we could save some money on the tickets. We are Florida residents with annual passes to Disney World so yes, we are Disney fans! We also had the idea to visit Legoland California and SeaWorld San Diego so when the SoCal City Pass came up in our search and allowed us to visit all 3 for one low price (YES, it is low compared to buying all 3 separately) we jumped at the opportunity.
