Our 10 Day Car Camping Adventure with Toddlers!

We did it! We just wrapped up our 10 day camping adventure in Colorado, Arizona, and Utah. It was a whirlwind of quick stops, tent set ups, camp meals, and long drives.

Take your toddler to Iceland!

While I was planning our trip to Iceland, I read several forums and columns that suggested you shouldn’t take your children to Iceland because they might “slow you down.”  That’s just silly.
