Three Must-Haves on Your Next Family Vacation

Keep the Kids Busy with These Great Suggestions
As the snow melts away and the brown grass slowly starts to peek through the white blanket of slush and ice, vacationing to a warmer climate starts to sound like a fantastic idea.  After five “long” months of bitter cold, many are eager to pack up their family and go on a spring break get away.  But, after a winter of minimal long distance road trips, you may have forgotten what' important to pack before you hit the road.
If a tropical destination is where your family is headed, you know you’ll want to pack the sunscreen, swim suits and flip-flops.  But if you think a pair of sunglasses and fun colored sandals are going to keep the kids busy in their seats, think again!  That’s why we’ve come up with some great kid-conscious travel necessities to bring with on your next family getaway.
Three Travel Accessories to Keep the Kids Busy:
1.  Games and Travel ToysGames and toys are just the thing to keep your 
     kids happy in the back seat or occupied on the plane ride.  Choose games 
     and toys that will keep everyone entertained.

     which is why you always want to have a snuggly soft toy or blankie at-the-
     ready.  With a snuggle buddy, a little afternoon snooze can make you 
     feel right at home.
