Traveling Light

Our crazy schedules are slowly coming to a close as summertime is finally making its way here. Summer is probably my (and the kids) most favorite time of the year as we are rid of the everyday regimes and can just do as we please. Our family usually travels the most during the summer months, and have already planned some days trips, weekend trips, and even a trip to Nevis. As much as I love to travel, the packing process is usually an issue, as we tend to pack up half of our apartment. More so for Gemma, I always have to make sure I pack the essentials we need to make for an easy and smooth trip.

That said, when it comes to napping, Gemma doesn’t quite do well when she’s in a different setting. She will never nap in a stroller unless it’s dire, and prefers only a crib. I just discovered Bjorn’s new and improved Travel Crib Light. It opens and closes in a cinch, making it super easy for our family on-the-go. The total weight is just 13 lbs, including its carrying case, which is especially great for when I’m toting the kids myself while Jason is traveling. The bag’s smart and compact design means that the travel crib is easy to store, carry and stow in any baggage space.

The Travel Crib Light has airy mesh that extends all the way to the floor, a new feature which allows parents and baby to see one another for a feeling of added security. I even set up the Travel Light Crib in our living room, so Gemma can play in it for when I need to take a shower and get ready for the day. She is in total toddler stage now, where getting into everything is a must for her, and sometimes need to just keep her in one place. Plus the sleek design blends in with any room setting and doesn’t feel like one big eyesore.

The crib’s soft and comfortable mattress sits firmly on the floor, providing a safe place for baby to sleep or play. We are really thrilled with our Travel Light, as we are now taking it everywhere we go, including day trips. We are guaranteed Gemma will nap and stay on schedule, plus it’s that easy to carry along. Traveling for us just got so much easier!

    We are taking our baby boy Charlie who will be for months old on our first family vacation to Nantucket, off the coast of Massachusetts. It’s where I spent college summers waitressing and nannying and the first trip my husband and I took as a couple! We rented a small cottage so we can even bring our crazy pooch Phoebe! The #travelcriblight from @babybjorn and @strollerinthecity would be perfect for us!

    1. How crooked? LOLNothing like sttairng a painting project right before the Christmas decor goes up (we just painted our dining room!)[] Reply:December 6th, 2012 at 12:22 pmOh pretty crooked!I don’t know what it is, last year we painted our dining room right before Christmas too! We have photos of our Christmas party where we have painters tape on the wall! Oops[]

    1. Sky Dawson is regrettably one of a haufndl of popular models (at that time) who’s path never crossed mine in any capacity. I’d have loved to have met him, but it was not to be. He was featured in the Al Parker film Turned On’, and though I met nearly every person in that film, the elusive Sky was not one of them. Damn!

  2. This summer we actually are planning to do some touring with our kids and some attractions in the city we live in. New York.

    1. Be careful taknig medical advice from Yahoo Answers.Some of the answers to your last question were bizarre, especially the one about masturbation causing torsion of the testis.One testis larger than the other may be a result of mumps, but you should seek proper medical advice about this in your case.Sperm count tests involve examining a fresh semen sample. They are not expensive as tests go, but obviously require some privacy to produce. Talk to your doctor about this.

  3. summer plans are to finish up remodeling our current house for a rental and then starting on a new forclosure updates!
    hopefully make time to visit my Dad up north and take a beach day

    1. Haha, I can’t wait to see pictures of your crkoeod tree. I’m sure it just gives it character! We get a real tree every year, but this year I got a small fake one too. I can understand the lure of the fake tree (so easy!!) but I love the smell and look of a real one.[] Reply:December 6th, 2012 at 12:23 pmI totally agree! We have a small fake one also that will probably go in our sunroom they are soo much easier, and perfect too![]

    I am due July 29, I plan on spending as much time as possible at the lake with my other two daughters swimming and enjoying the sun with their new sister. And in September we have a family reunion/pool party.

  5. I have this on my registry for our first due in August! We are military and I travel ALL the time by myself. This comes highly recommended and is a must have for me + our sweet baby girl!!!

    1. Wow, I think you will be a great OB. It seems like you have a real love for children, fiimlaes, and people in general. Sad to say that those qualities are rare traits in todays world. I believe not just anyone should be in just any job because you could be in a job that you hate and end up making everyone who comes in contact with you at work miserable. You have the joy and care to be great at your job and effect those you will be working around not only by your knowledge , but by your love for what you do.

    2. Yea! for the top 5 listing!Gimme Some will be the top of my poanesrl list all-time best albums along with some other faves:Nanci Griffith FlyerTom Petty and HBs Damn the TorpedoesBeatles Rubber Soul, and RevolverNeil Young Harvest MoonThe Cars Candy-OQueen Night at the OperaColdplay ParachutesJohn Mayer Heavier ThingsAimee Mann Lost in SpacePlease check out Nanci Griffith if you never have, she’s an incredible songwriter, folk-country though. I think Peter would like her thanks for Gimme Some and for the space,Lisa

  6. Hanging out in the backyard, teaching my little baby girl to sit and crawl, going to Denver for a wedding and the beach for a birthday!

    1. Hi folks, it’s a small thing, but i thought i would share.I was at Costco in the mlidde of the day, with time to spare. How rare!I noticed that the two folks behind me were each holding a single item. Well, no problem. I asked each of them if they would like to go ahead of me, and what do you know they did!Since the checkout crew at Costco are a well-oiled team, it only took an extra 3 minutes out of my day, and made those customers pretty happy.Pay It Forward!

    2. Great look, love the skirt and the beanie as culoor detail!I just stumbled across your blog and I really like your style!I’m following you now and I’m looking forward to your new posts :)If you want, check out my blog too:xx

    1. I subscribed to your cnnahel, thumbs up-ed your video, I’m attempting to leave as many comments as I could, I share your videos, and I added you on FaceBook. Thank you, and I look forward to winning a white iPod Touch.

    1. Hi, and sorry if my english is bad. I wish to ask. What can I do to reecvie your autographed photo? If I have to send a fanletter to you, will you let me know an address for you in Australia. Please, it will make me so proud if I’m the lucky one.Have a nice day michelleYours sincerelyAnni Pia Jensen

    1. Yeah I get it already, She’s fsitaatnc. and she certainly is but could you please post some of the races she’s won or her trophy (& medal) collection. Can you show her some respect for all the training she’s been doing instead of just ooogeling at her? thanks Man, DarrylHarrisburg, PA

    2. I just tried this carrier on in the store and enjyoed it. We’re looking for something to carrying my toddler around Europe in and I think this would be a good fit–especially in chestnut. Thanks for the giveaway. I’d love to win!

    1. My wife and I have been very blessed in our lives. We have also lived thogruh very tight times ( I. E., blood donations.) We have always felt the love if others. Many times, we picked up the bill for another at a resturant. Other times we paid for another’s groceries. Another time we put together a baby shower for a lady we never met who left an abusive home. Instead of money, we gave a man in the rain a sleeping bag, a coat, and accessories along with a gift card for a meal at Denny’s. When my wife ad I ran into financial issues, we were blessed by people who remained anonymous with a $500 gift card twice. We always asked why. We had a very hard time accepting. Why us? LovePay it forward It will come back when needed

    1. Great interview, Chanson, and nice to hear your chrfeeul voice. Liked the part about meat eating. Apparently some Mormons haven’t digested (no pun intended) that part of the WoW yet. Could be because the word “meat” also takes such a long time to digest? I’ve always thought this one of the great ironies of Mormonism, considering D&C 89. Bjorn picked it up immediately at the picnic he and his wife attended. I think the interview goes a long way to dispelling the notion of the angry anti-ex-Mormon. Really, what is there to be angry about when you discover true freedom to make your own life choices, including whether to continue being angry, or not? I choose the positive (yet don’t shirk from what I think is worthwhile criticism), and I think that far more people will listen to ex-Mormons, including Mormons, when they can present themselves as actually enjoying their choice to leave the fold, not worried about going to a mythical Hades, and even speaking positively but realistically of their former faith. All I can say after that interview is that I feel proud of you. Encore! We need a lot more of it. Where is your next appearance?

  7. Erica Pallutch

    My summer plans are spending as much time outside with my little girl and making this a fun filled summer before she becomes a big sister to a little sister in Sept!

  8. This summer, we plan to head out of state to visit family, check out a local festival, and visit as many new parks as we can!

    1. I love that the tree is crooked! I think it will add so much chcaarter! And you are looking great mama!![] Reply:December 6th, 2012 at 12:22 pmThanks Amanda. I’m trying over here! I’ve lost a couple more pounds; it’s hard to get this baby weight off!![]

  9. We don’t really have any summer plans… it’s all about getting ready for the new house and the baby coming in August. So we got a full plate this summer already 🙂 But there will be lots of traveling to and from both sets of grandparents homes!

  10. This summer, my fiance and I are planning to take a long weekend somewhere we can escape in nature.. either the beach (maybe Wildwood or Myrtle Beach) or perhaps the Poconos.

  11. Planning a FL beach vacation at the end of June with the family for 1 week! So excited! nlevdan3 at yahoo dot com

    1. Hey Jeremy!I’m relatively new to the LoveSystems prdcuots. I must say, your Day Game routines and advice are the best part of what this business has to offer. I’ve never had much interest in bars/nightclubs, and I thought to myself wouldn’t it be awesome to meet women at the supermarket, at the mall, or on the street? Needless to say, I’m excited to hear about your new Day Game ebook! Is there an anticipated release date? This stuff is golden:)I look forward to hearing from you bud! Take care.-Matt

  13. Rachel Rich-Shea

    We have 2 weddings to go to- one in California and another in Rhode Island. Then we are spending the rest of the summer in Boston with family!

  14. We are going to try to take our grandkids to see the ocean, Myrtle Beach maybe. Other then that we love camping and go a lot.

  15. Rebecca Parsons

    We are going to a family reunion in Pennsylvania on the Fourth of July, then we are taking two weeks and going to the Smoky Mountains.

    1. On October 3, thirty high socohl students from Mount Si’s Key Club visited the homes of two elderly folks in North Bend. Armed with gloves, garden tools, and determination ..they set out to offer assistance to these homeowners where the labor had simply become too big an obstacle. The students split and stacked firewood, trimmed overgrown bushes and hedges, brought garden beds back to objects of beauty, raked leaves, and filled an enormous trailer with discarded and rotting lumber that was taken to the dump. The best part of this endeavor was the smiles and hugs given by the homeowners to these high socohl Key Clubbers. That so many showed up at their homes to Pay it Forward was overwhelming and one of the most heart-warming experiences I have seen. Way to go Mount Si Key Club!

    1. Interesting bit of journalism here you’re canllig the album a 3-CD waste of space and saying it’s hardly worth buying based on the album length and someone else’s review? I’m confused as to why you don’t listen to it BEFORE you proffer criticism. C’mon man leave speculation to the amateurs!

    2. thank you colleen, i feel that you read my mind and like an angel put it out there for me to read. when i moved my yougenst son into univ of colorado boulder this past august, he said mom i love you, but it is time to take the training wheels off’ .. i too am proud , we teach our children to be independent , to tie their shoe, read a book, walk to school and then , well, then we need to breath, let go, and thank god for lovely messages from people like you who let us know we are not alone. see you in marrakech. L.

    1. well it fixes malnutrition and all these diessae but its not stopping the water risingIs he saying we should adapt to the changes? cause I dont see how getting old ppl air conditioning is stopping the water from rising maybe im missing something here

  16. We are heading to Wildwood at the end of July. It’s our first vacation since having our 5th baby and coincidentally she will turn 1 while we are there! This would be such a lifesaver for our trip 🙂

    1. A psychiatrist is a phsiicyan who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of mental disorders. I have a bachelor’s degree in the social services field. For several years, I have worked with children who have been diagnosed with mental disorders. It is upsetting to see children victimize at an early age and even more disturbing to see them as predators as early as 5 years of age, however knowing that I am doing my part to assist them in becoming functioning youths and adults is rewarding. The empathy, confidentiality and maturity of a medical assistant are definitely needed in this area. I enjoy establishing a rapport with these clients and helping them to find adequate coping skills to deal with their disorders, therefore I would like to work for a psychiatrist.I would not like to work for an emergency phsiicyan for several reasons. I will explain a few. Patients who come to the emergency center typically have serious injuries or trauma. I would not like to have my mind constantly focused on who is coming thru the door and how sever the prognosis is. Knowing myself, I know that would be my focus and I would not be very productive. Also, in the emergency room the staff has to be prepared for anything, I would prefer an area that focuses on a particular specialty. Most importantly, I do not wish to see excessive amounts of blood loss on a regular basis. Actually, not even a minimal amount of blood loss on a regular basis. Giving my opinion and thoughts about this specialty, I would not be an effective employee.

  17. We just returned home from a lovely family trip to Orlando and Disney World. We had a blast and can’t wait to go again.

    1. Since there is so many fields of spiicaltees that I have a choice of, I still really can’t choose one. So I am going base on my personal experiences. My original goal back in high school and maybe even before that, was to work in a Neonatal ICU! I had a brother that passed before he had his first birthday from heart complications, and that year I spent a lot of time at hospitals with my parents. My goal the first couple of years was to work with babies just like him. That was until I had my own children, I would of still loved to have worked in that career field but the heart ache I would most likely endure when one of those babies did not make it home. I could not have handled!On to more positive experiences, I have worked with the elderly and Geriatrics interests me very much. Being surrounded with people that have lived a fulfilled life is so much more rewarding. Even though at times it is the ending stages of their lives, and it is sad when someone does pass. It’s less of a heartache to know that most of the time they are ready to move on. They are still very dependent on you and when you are able to help them with their needs that’s the most rewarding of all, plus you form a special relationship with the patients and their families.

    1. In his book Cool It he says ice replaces iltesf. Its common sense when you think about it. When you fill a glass with ice and let it melt it does not rise once its melted, its actually very logical. Sometimes we just need someone to put it into perspective. Therefor we need someone like Bjf8rn Lomborg.
