If you’ve been reading my blog for some time now you know how much we love to travel even with our children! My kids are really awesome travellers but I believe part of that is because they have been doing it since they were so little. From weekend trips to the cottage to flights a few times a year they love to travel as much as we do. Now I will be honest now that we have 3 it is a bit more challenging that it was with just one or even two. The youngest I took my baby on a flight was at 6 weeks old and I can honestly say I have never had a terrible flight with them but I also come prepared. When I fly with my kids the first thing I always pack is Lysol wipes because those planes are full of germs and no one wants to go on vacation and end up sick or with sick babies. I lysol wipe their (and my) seats done completely before they touch anything. Maybe a little OCD yes, but if it keeps us healthy I’ll never regret doing it! There is the natural things like snacks, books, colouring pads with markers, favourite toy or stuffie. I also like to pack suckers for taking off and landing to help with their ears. We put new apps/games on their iPads and we just downloaded the movie Trolls so pretty much they will be watching that non stop the entire flight I’m sure.  I also bring a change of clothes because you just never know when you’ll need them as well as their favourite blanket (and soother for baby). I have also pick up a few new little toys and I wrapped them to add to the excitement for them to open on the flight. Thankfully they will nap since its a lengthy flight so I count on those glorious naps to pass some of the flight! To be completely honest kids are unpredictable everyone or at least every parent knows that so I come prepared with things to try and keep them amused but you as a mom just have to stay calm and be flexible cause you really don’t know what each flight will bring!!

  • A weekend spent at their favorite place (the beach) with our favorite people is a weekend well spent and we wish it didn’t have to end! #summertime #beachbabes
  • Have you ever felt called to do something that made no sense but you knew you had to do it? Ok, glad I’m not the only one! My man @iammiketodd said it best in a recent sermon when he said “it’s not faith if you can see it and it’s not faith if it was not once a hope”  it may see crazy and it makes no sense why I’m being asked to do it but I have faith in the confidence that my obedience will produce good things. #thebestisyettocome #obedienceistheverybestway
  • Emotions... they can be a curse and a blessing! I am a feeler like I feel things deep and more often than not I am quick to wish I didn’t feel so deeply that I could care less about things so I wouldn’t be hurt but I am starting to remind myself more often that as hard as it is to feel and be open with your emotions it also can be used for good! It’s a blessing that God didn’t make @tspinksy a deeply emotional guy cause I have enough emotion for the two of us but I was reminded the other day when listening to a sermon by my bro-in-love @scottystephenson that our feelings are meant to be a gage not a guide! Emotions and feelings aren’t bad they really are a good thing and it’s ok to acknowledge how you’re feeling and feel those feelings but don’t let them be your guide to making decisions and choices in life but to always come back to truth because as we all know emotions and feelings are ever changing! #thoughtsonatuesdaynight #passthekleenex #micdrop
  • Just a mama and her boy! I’m so thankful I get to be a mommy to both boys and girls there is definitely a unique but different bond! I love all my babies equally but the bond between me and this boy is different than the one between his daddy and his sisters! 💙
  • Four years ago today, a week past your due date, you finally stopped making us wait to see your cute face and your head full of dark hair! I remember so many things about that day and today as we reminisced about that day and your big sister and brother meeting you for the first time I was once again moved to tears at the fact that Jesus knew we needed you before we knew we did! You are my fashionista, my “babysitter” to the baby’s we have you are your sister and brother’s BFF! You challenge me in ways I’ve never been challenged in motherhood, you push me to be more patient and yet we have the sweetest conversations and share a love to make anything into a song! My sweet baby girl (and yes you will always be my baby) I love you to the moon and back and can’t believe you are 4! So grown up and ready to spread your wings and start to fly this year as you start school and it breaks my heart to know that my days with you are over (I am referring to the fact you will know join your big brother and sister at school instead of being at home with me) and yet I’m so proud of you and excited to see you flourish! Happy Birthday #lyricbethany
