Names/Ages: Annabelle, Reem, Ryland, and Malayna (5 years, 5 weeks, and 20-month-old twins)
Vacation Location: North Platte, Nebraska

Favorite Baby or Child Friendly Activity There:Cody Park - My sisters and I went there all the time as kids and I love that it is exactly the same for my own.

Best Tip for Traveling with Kids:Stop often and let them stretch. Every small town (in NE atleast) has a good antique store and we always check them out. The kids can stretch and I can score!

Favorite Way to Make it Feel Like Home:Bring your own sheets. We bring sheets that smell like our house for the hotel beds and the kids pass out the second they hit them.

An Item you MUST Take With You While Traveling:A flashlight and extra gas. My husband tries to make it on one tank EVERY time and we always run out. After the 3rd failed attempt ended with him walking 4 miles to the next town and back, we learned to be prepared.

Thanks, Aurelie!
