Names/Ages: Ella (1)
Vacation Location:Watercolor, Florida

Favorite Baby or Child Friendly Activity There: She loved hanging out at the pool...she loved the ocean and the waves, too. She just wanted to be in the water all the time!

Best Tip for Traveling with Kids: Bring enough snacks, milk and toys for the plane trip is important, but planning our flight schedule to coordinate with naptime was the BEST thing we did!

Favorite Way to Make it Feel Like Home: We brought a selection of her favorite toys, as well as her favorite blanket and pillow.

An Item you MUST Take With You While Traveling: Sound machine! Ella sleeps with a sound machine at home, and having it on vacation was crucial. We were in a beach house with a total of 12 people, and her cousins stayed up later than her. We were grateful to be able to drown out some of the noise.

Thanks, David!
