Names/Ages: Frances (21 months)
Vacation Location: Sauvie Island, Oregon

Favorite Baby or Child Friendly Activity There: Berry picking - it's cheap, it's outside, it's a fun activity for kids and it's healthy. When they get bored with the picking (and eating) they can wander the fields (and sing itsy-bitsy spider themselves, as seen in the photo).

Best Tip for Traveling with Kids: For long drives or air travel I like to get some new small and entertaining toys (etch-a-sketch is a must!) and bring lots and lots of snacks.

Favorite Way to Make it Feel Like Home: We don't really try to make it feel like home because it isn't. It's an adventure, and as long as we're all together we're all good. Of course we bring the bedtime routine things - blanket, lovies and favorite books.

An Item you MUST Take With You While Traveling: Our white noise machine, it comes everywhere with us.

Thanks, Posy!
