Today is Family Volunteer Day!

Today may seem like a normal Saturday, but it’s not! Today is Family Volunteer Day! I posted about what our family does to give back to our community here. Family Volunteer Day is a day of service that celebrates the power of families that work together and help their communities. Family Volunteer Day is held the Saturday before Thanksgiving to really help kick off the holiday spirit of giving. This year we did some volunteering before Family Volunteer day and today we decided to keep our volunteering really close to home and help out our community directly. We went around the neighborhood cleaning up neighbor’s yards. We have some elderly neighbors that we know it’s too difficult for them to get out and clean up their yard of all the trash that blows through.

I am always on the lookout though for causes our family can contribute to. That is why I am really excited about Family Volunteer day!

My Top Tips for a Perfect Fall Family Road Trip!

“Travel with kids”, sometimes the very words can make a parent panic. It can be hard enough to travel with two people, but throw kids into the mix, and things get complicated. Well… that’s my life. We travel all the time with our two kids in tow. While I feel they are well-behaved kids and I love traveling with them, they inevitably complicate some parts of travel. I am always making sure they are fed, happy, and comfortable. This isn’t always easy, and I am always on the lookout for tools that can help me do the job even better and easier.
