Chester Travel Luggage Review

During our trip to France last spring, my carry-on bag busted at the wheels and zippers making it a bit difficult.   Fortunately for us, we were visiting family there so we were able to “borrow” one of their suitcases to help us get through our trip.  I believe their suitcase is still sitting in my basement.  I may have to send it with my mother-in-law when she goes for a visit in a couple of weeks.  While I have been meaning to purchase a new one, there are just so many options out there that I just couldn’t decide.

A Day at Minnesota Children’s Museum

Thank you Minnesota Children’s Museum for sponsoring this post.  Minnesota Children’s Museum provided us with tickets to explore and enjoy the museum.  All opinions are my own. 

Minnesota Children’s Museum is located in downtown Saint Paul and opens all year round.  It has three floors of fun for kids to explore and run around.  The boys are super excited to spend a day at the Minnesota Children’s Museum.  We have been there many times before and they always enjoy their time there.  Each time is always a different experience.  Be prepared to be here for at least 2-3 hours.  This would allow the kids ample time to explore all there is to offer and really be able to enjoy it.

Our Family Trip To France and Switzerland

Bonjour! We finally made it to France!! Vang grew up in France so naturally we had to visit. He still has siblings living there. I was excited to not only visit France but be able to meet the rest of his siblings. We wanted to wait until the boys were big enough to be able to travel to such a big and busy place. As well as being able to handle the long flight.
