Fall Road Trip Tips for Families with Older Kids

Fall Road Trip Tips for Families with Older Kids

There is something about the changing of the season from summer to fall that makes me long for the open road. The summer traffic has died down, the weather is cool enough to open the windows and the sunroof and changing leaves makes for pretty scenery.

Taking a family road trip can be a challenge no matter what age your kids are. I remember fondly the days of car seats and activity bags. My kids are six years apart, we never had the struggle of multiple car seats or entertaining two (or more) small children at a time. But just because they are older, doesn't mean we are immune to the trials of family road trips! (Are we there yet??)

Weekly Family Meal Plan 2017 Week 42


Weekly Family Meal Plan October 16 2017

Here we are, another Monday. Did you take some time out this weekend to plan for your meals this week? Just a little time and thought, can save you a ton of aggravation, time and money later.

I used to get so stressed out about what we were having for dinner: did I have everything I needed? So many nights I just threw in the towel and we ordered take out. Easier, yes. But it was also not very healthy and it was expensive! For the past couple years, I have stuck with weekly meal planning, and sharing my ideas and plan here with you. I hope that it not oonly holds me accountable, but gives you some inspiration!
