We are getting so excited for Spring Break! We look forward to the tropical destination as much as unwinding and spending quality time with our boys. I am so excited to make memories we will cherish forever. As I start to pack our bags for our upcoming vacation, I wanted to share my vacation must-haves with you!
We love spending the day on the beach*! Our days are filled with swimming, playing cards, collecting sea shells, listening to music and picnicking, all while listening to the waves crash against the shore. Is there anything better?
After a day on the beach, we enjoy biking or walking to town. Discovering local shops, restaurants and new people is always a highlight of the trip. With 6 boys, I don't have a lot of time to get ready, so I pack more casual-chic items that are comfortable and have a vacation vibe to them!
Vacation is also a time for us to stay active while having a ton of fun. From surfing to skateboarding, Frisbee to volleyball and everything in between - games and activities make up a large portion of our days. We never leave for vacation without our activities suitcase!
Over the past two months, I’ve had the privilege to judge some of the greatest culinary families in the country on ABC’s Family Food Fight. Week after week, we’ve watched them make delicious recipes they have perfected over generations. From the Lee Family’s Sweet and Sour Prawns to the Livanos Family’s Pasta Con Le Sarde, getting to taste homemade cuisines from different cultures was one of my favorite parts of judging.
I love watching movies. On rainy days when I don’t feel like making the trek to the theatre, we pop a movie on our TV and recreate the theatre experience in our own home. Popcorn, a popcorn maker and a few cozy blankets will do wonders to transform your night in to an official movie night. If you have a popcorn bucket, like the striped one below, it’ll be just like you’re at an AMC.
