Hi! Oh yes, that’s me, the mom with the camera snapping photos of her kids and husband at the beach, the Washington Monument and with the Disney characters. If I had a problem, it would be over-documenting our lives a little. But I try to be cautious not to let it interfere with our fun, and the kids adore looking back at our memories in photo books.

From deciding which camera or lenses to bring, to when and where to bring your camera, and trying to remember what pictures you want to take, it can get overwhelming.

The good thing is I’ve learned a thing or two about documenting a family vacation. Over on Alamo’s Scenic Route, I’m sharing some tips on photographing your family vacation. Check it out and let me know if you have any tips to add!

Now without further ado, here are some of my favorite family vacation photos. Most of which I snapped, but the one I’m in I was luckily able to hand my camera off to someone else so I could be in it. I definitely couldn’t narrow it down to just one, and actually getting it down to 10 wasn’t easy. The theme to all of these is joy, which I think, is quite evident if you ask me.

It’s not a surprise that we are big Disney fans. You’ve seen me review countless movies and dish out some of my favorite tips for making memories on Disney vacations. You may not have known this but I also know a thing or two about doing a Disney vacation on a budget.

Disney World for preschoolers #DisneyKids

My kids have been to Walt Disney World four times (I had to ask my daughter because I missed a trip). I’ve taken them each to Disneyland once and we’ve done two Disney Cruises. We actually had another Land and Sea trip booked for last month, but with Sneaky’s impending arrival and Zika warnings in the Bahamas, we decided to postpone our fun for another time. It’s ok though because had I gone I wouldn’t have met Oprah (more on that later).

Just yesterday Big T said he wants to go to Disney World again and I got so nostalgic for all the fun we had. Taking a Disney vacation can be very expensive, so I try to save in certain areas when we go. This means we usually bring our own snacks and/or lunches, and remember to pack things like rain ponchos so we don’t have to splurge last-minute on buying them in the park.

I have plenty of tips for you to save you money as you plan your trip. Today over on the Alamo Scenic Route blog, I’m dishing all of my tips for taking a Disney vacation on a budget. Check it out and let me know if you have any tips to add from your own experience!

Winter is not my jam. In fact, it’s probably my least favorite season. If it weren’t for the holidays, I’d want to be a bear and hibernate until it passed.

My husband and I lived in Utah for the first part of our marriage and I absolutely hated the snow. I couldn’t wait to leave Utah, and move someplace without the cold, fluffy stuff. It would make it easier to drive, easier to get ready for the day, and less work shoveling. We decided Austin, Texas, looked nice, and we’ve rarely seen snow since. Nine years and two kids later, we still don’t miss the snow, but we do remember how fun and magical it was when we were kids. Last winter, we planned a trip to Utah to visit family for Thanksgiving and hopefully let our kids see their first snow. We arrived at the Salt Lake City airport, rented a car from Alamo Rent A Car, and make our way to Grandma’s house.

There wasn’t any snow on the ground when we got there, but before we left the kids not only got to witness their first snow, but they got to play in it. They happily shoveled it, made snow angels and even went tubing down a big snow hill.

If you’re like me and are not a big fan of winter, let me tell you, planning some fun in the snow does help. Head over to the Alamo Scenic Route and check out my new blog post on the perfect family winter travel bucket list!
