Just Keep Swimming

It’s no secret that my family lives for playtime in the pool. Daddy grew up surfing and I think his deep rooted love for the water lives on in both of the kids.  Although my summer activity of choice is snoozing in the sun (sun screened of course, duh) I will happily splash around even in the coldest water to bring a smile to my kids’ faces. Needless to say, picking a hotel to stay at usually involves some heavy research into the pool situation. We knew we’d love the JW Marriott Dessert Ridge because there were multiple pools, a splash pad, and a freaking lazy river. That was maybe my favorite part because I got to relax in my innertube while Elouise floated along in the current of the river. She felt like a mermaid and I can confidently say that we spent hours in there. Here are some photos from our pool time, obviously rocking our favorite family swimwear from Kortni Jeane.

Phoenix Fun at the JW Marriott Desert Ridge

I am here to report that a vacation with two littles can be incredible. Don’t believe me? Just look at these photos! Elouise had the time of her life and we loved having fun as a family. I think it really had to do with the location we chose also. Thanks a million to the JW Marriott Desert Ridge for hosting us. If you are ever on the hunt for a family friendly resort, just trust me, and the thousands of photos below, when I say that this place is a family vacation dream. There was an amazing pool area, which I will be dedicating another post to because it was just that good. I also have vacation tips, road trip essential, packing ideas, and more coming your way so stay tuned. To kick it off, here’s a little look at our stay at Desert Ridge!

5 Tips for Getting Sleep During Family Travel

A few weeks ago we had the most magical stay at The Disneyland Hotel. It was just for one night and happens to be a short 1-hour drive from our house but regardless, we had to get creative when it came to bedtime. We have traveled quite a bit with Elouise and now we are learning all sorts of new tricks since we’ve been hitting the road with Sully. Traveling with a baby and a toddler, or any amount of children, is totally possible and can still be fun, even if you aren’t staying at the happiest place on earth. Keep scrolling, because I decided to share some of my best tips for getting a good nights sleep while traveling as a family.

The Cannon Adventures: Family Getaway at Omni La Costa

I’ve mentioned before that us Cannons love a good adventure. Christian and I were so lucky to get to travel all over the world before we had Elouise and we promised ourselves we wouldn’t stop exploring when she arrived. We totally kept that promise and have taken her all over on fun family getaways, road trips, and even a Hawaiian vacation. Things have been crazy for us since Sully arrived but we are finally settling into a routine and knew it was time to get a family adventure on the books for 2017. We decided on Omni La Costa in gorgeous Carlsbad, CA which is a quick hour drive away from us. It was the perfect early kick off to, what we hope will be, a Summer filled with adventures both big and small.
