Hello from vacation! 

We are so excited to be breaking out of our usual schedules to indulge in some rest. Lets not pretend that rest joins us on many family vacations but there are a few ways to make family vacations a whole lot easier.

There aren’t many things that can derail a vacation with kids like sunburn and constant trips to the local grocery store or Target to get what you’ve forgotten.  Grab what you need before you go so you are ready.  

We recognize some of these may be a bit aspirational (really Tovah, you’ll have time to read on vacation with the kids?) but no matter what they are must haves.

What are your must haves for family vacations?
