Since our most recent trip I can’t help but think of where our family might travel to next. Even on our last day in Hawaii I said to my husband, “What’s next on your list?” It is no secret that I love to travel, and this year I have made it a goal to get out more all together as a family to explore areas both near and somewhat far. Here are five North American Family Destinations (on the West Coast) that are on my list to visit this year.

5 North American Family Destinations on our 2017 Travel Bucket List

5. Vancouver Island

Two years ago we went to visit family just out of Nanaimo on Protection Island, it was so dreamy and peaceful. I would love to head back there again as well as take the kids to downtown Victoria to do all things touristy.

4. Prince George

Because sometimes it’s not the place you want to visit but the people. We have friends in Prince George that we plan to go visit and cannot wait to take the trip up there in the Spring. We try to make it a yearly trip to see them but with having Evelyn last year, this trip didn’t happen. 2017 we got this.

3. Seattle

We have taken a number of trips to Seattle in the past, but we didn’t get a chance to make it last year. This might be a great idea for our five year anniversary as we went to Seattle to celebrate our first anniversary. Watching a Mariners game would be up on our list of things to do there too!

2. San Fransisco

If we can make number five happen and if we drive there then San Fransisco is going to be on the list of places to take a pit stop. When I was in Grade One we drove to Disneyland and also stopped in San Fransisco, I would love to relive that childhood trip with my kids.

1. Disneyland!

Now this is something that I am still convincing my husband on, but I think that this year would be the perfect year to take the kids to Disneyland, yes Evelyn might be a little young but Ezra is the perfect age. If we wait for Evelyn to be older, that could work, but I don’t want Ezra to miss out on the magic of Disney at the age he is now.

When we go (positive thinking here) we will stay at the Country Inn and Suites that is in walking distance to Disneyland, Anaheim. The brand new hotel is modern and stylish with some major key features that have me excited to stay there.

  • Spacious rooms with spa inspired bathrooms
  • Complimentary hot breakfast
  • Wi-fi Included
  • Large outdoor patio with pool
  • Unforgettable view of Disneyland’s fireworks

Whenever I share about our family off on another adventure I’m often asked about what it’s like travelling with three kids. Sometimes it will be comments like “brave mama” or something of the sort. Which I totally understand, it can seem so overwhelming to travel with kids. But I want to encourage you all to not hold back by how tired you might be ... or that you won’t be able to relax as much if your kids weren’t there. Travelling with your kids, seeing new places through their learning eyes is refreshing in itself. Tiring yes, but so so rewarding.

How do you feel about travelling with kids?
  • I made these for Mother’s Day and then decided to keep them
for myself. Ha!

Using my @canoncanada PIXMA Printer and
their restickable paper, I put together a quick and easy DIY that would make a perfect gift for someone.. or for yourself.
Personalized wine bottles!

There are even more DIY ideas at the link in my profile thanks
to Canon and their PIXMA Printers. #Sponsored

Thanks for ALL the recommendations for everything to do in Gibson’s and the surrounding area. There are SO MANY awesome locally owned shops we want to discover still. Today started with a 🛥 tour by @sunshinekayaking as we explored along @sunshinecoastbc and the surrounding islands, we grabbed ☕️ at @beachcombercoffee and 🍦 at @mikesplace2003 along with food at @black.bean.cafe #yum !

Explored a little along the 🏖 and then discovered everything within @gibsonspublicmarket — leaving with some 🧀 🥖 🍎 for afternoon snacks. See everything in my stories including some sea creatures from @nsmec 🦐 🐟 🦀 sooo cool!! A quick 🚎 ride home with @bc_transit for a rest before the kids start begging to go for a 🏊‍♂️ 🏊‍♀️... it’s definitely tiring travelling around all day with three kiddos but my mamas some sort of superhero and their eagerness to learn and love for exploring makes it 💫🙌🏻🥰

One more day to #exploreBCbybus — excited to see what’s to come.
  • I’m surprised you can’t see the wrinkles on our bodies from the camera after our three hour swim this afternoon. 
We got up at 630AM to make sure we had enough time to finish packing 🤦🏼‍♀️ and drive out to catch our @bcferries — after a quick ⛴ ride over we all hopped on the @bc_transit city 🚎 into Gibson’s and then further into Sechelt ... where we became water prunes. 🏊 
I’ve been asked to share an article for @bc_transit on our experience as we #exploreBCbybus 🚎 — the next few days I’ll be sharing on my Stories some of the places we explore too! I’d love to hear your recommendations on places to eat, thanks to a lovely follower for suggesting dinner at 🍔 @pklsburgers, we are pleasantly stuffed.

Where should we go next?? 🌊 ☀️ We’ll be around Gibson’s and Sechelt the next two days.

Also, just gotta add... my mom makes a pretty great #InstagramGrammy 🙌🏻🥰🤣
  • You don’t need to birth a child to be a mama. I don’t talk about being a step-mama very often, mostly because overall it doesn’t feel any different then being a mama to the kiddos I birthed. Everyone’s journey to motherhood looks and feels different, some may seem easier but each unique with their own challenges. Wherever you are in your motherhood journey today, I want to say that you are loved, you are appreciated and you are exactly what the child you are mothering needs.
