How To: Child Travel Bin

Yum
 Have you traveled with a small child before? Let me just give you a few tips, tricks and a full out LIFE saver when traveling long distances with kiddos. We drive A LOT when traveling. Last year we hit a horrific snow storm along the East Coast and drive 33 hours. If you have little one's you need to be prepared because you just NEVER know what will happen on the road. 
I have a son so this is what I pack in his GO-TO Travel bin. I grab a inexpensive bin (it is going to be joggled around in the car no need to splurge) from Dollar Tree. A few activities my son can do whilst we drive. Spelling words with Magnetized letters, games, crayons and coloring books!

Easter Basket Ideas without Candy

Yum
 Ever since my son was a year and a half he has not been able to digest more than 9 grams of sugar in a sitting. At first this was a shock because everything has sugar in it, right? We researched and learned how to make all of our favorite dishes excluding the sugar. Holidays like Valentine's, Halloween and Easter can be very difficult since they are based highly on giving out candy. Here are two Easter Basket ideas without candy!
I would suggest collecting stuff when it goes on sale or after season to save the most money! Or hover around the $1 spot at Target! I collected a few of these at yard sales, Dollar tree and Target.

Travel Whirlpool Aero Car, Niagara Falls

Yum
We love being in the outdoors, taking in the wonderful views. The Niagara Falls area has some of the most captivating views you will see. 
Take for instance our ride on the Whirlpool Aero cart. 
We were transported through the air in an antique cable car, far above the Niagara Whirlpool. If you have a fear of heights this might not be for you.
