Traveling with Kids

I am very fortunate that my kids are well traveled.  They don't fuzz around whenever we go on a trip such as the one we recently did in Texas.  My son gets antsy sometimes but it's because he is a boy and he can't really take sitting still for a longer time in the airport but other than that, they are so good when on the plane.
During our early drive going to San Antonio Texas Airport, going back home.

At the shuttle bus after returning the  car we rented for a week.

Waiting for our flight to Houston
We barely made it to our connecting flight going to Pittsburgh.

Finally landed at Pittsburgh Airport.    These two just love  dragging their traveling suitcase.

I was going to pack our clothes in two big suitcases but  did not want to pay the extra $25 for each  bag so we decided to just buy an additional carry on luggage so we can all have a free  luggage for our stuff.

I miss those times when you don't have to worry about the fee for your  luggage.  Glad we found a carry on upright that matches the set  of suitcases that we already have.  For practical reasons, just  buy a new  carry on instead of  paying for the check in bags.

Another thing to consider is to buy this TravelWise  3-PIece Packing Cube Set from Eat Smart. You can buy this through Amazon. They are now on sale for $25 with free shipping.  You can enjoy a big savings of 50% from it's original price.  These set is available  in red, black, teal, purple, and silver  colors.

If you can remember, Eat Smart also  sent me the  digital luggage scale which helped us determine not to  bring the  check in bags from our recent travel.  So thank you  Eat Smart for this another great product you have sent me.  It also  matches   our luggage set which is a big plus.  I could totally use this for the   upcoming  local trip that we are planning to celebrate  our daughter's birthday.

This TravelWise 3-Piece Packing Cube Set is great to organize your traveling  stuff.  This is  a great one to have especially for those frequent travelers who love to pack their  things very neatly inside  their  suitcase.  I wish that I have these before we went to Texas, it could have been a great organizer for  my kids stuff.    Below is the features copied from amazon.
  • Extra-Durable 3 Piece Packing Cube System - Small, Medium and Large cubes let you compartmentalize similar size items and provide optimum utilization of interior luggage space

I miss travel its exciting because you can see the plane and mostly I get excited when were on board. your kids are excited I like their suitcase cute.

Melinda Dunne said...

I also don't like the fact that you have to pay for luggage now. It looks your children really enjoy traveling. I love that they drag their own bags around.

Nicole A. said...

I'm an adult I still get antsy when sitting on plane for a long time.

Jennifer Williams said...

That is great that they both travel well. My youngest I am afraid will not, he does not like strangers so in the car he would be okay but a plane, everyone would hate me!

becca said...

i wish my bank account would allow me to travel more

jheylo said...

Marie Forster said...

your kids looks happy and excited what a great travel mommy.

jheylo said...

Those luggage are really nice and handy for the kids.

Adin B said...

That is a good thing they are both troopers. I miss traveling and this year there won't be any vacation for us. :( But that is okay and we hope next summer will be the summer we go somewhere for a vacation. Anyway, sounds like you guys had a great tip to Texas. I also love that carry-on luggage that you bought mommy.

April M. said...

American tourister luggage are really of good quality. I have one in blue.

nova hedges said...

I guess because of the gas problems, they why they've been charging us with how much weight we can only take with us for free...grrr...glad you guys made it.

Adin B said...

Back here again mommy. Just looking at your photos makes me miss going on a vacation or road trips. :) I just remembered about the American Tourister because I just got me a vintage carpet bag made by the American Tourister. :) They make great quality luggage. :)

Peachy said...

I totally understand because Ykaie is like that as well. Iba talaga pag lakwatsera..LOL!

Michelle Garrett said...

Very great tip! Especially when traveling with a family it's definitely more affordable to take a carry-on.

Mel Cole said...

true, very nice to have a carry-on with wheels during air travel. convenient and makes you walk fast and catch the next plane early.

Kha Arabejo said...

It's good to know that you can travel very comfortable and easy even with kids. That's what I am trying to imply to my daughter to behave well especially in public places. Aside from the thought that it gives us peace us parents that we need not to worry too much, it also making us feel proud that in that scenario we knew we did great our job cultivating them.

Love when kids are able to carry their own stuff - even on a plane. Really smart for kids to learn how to be self reliant.

Shannon Marie Baker said...

What fun and those are nice little travel drag behind cases. They look very convenient for those who do travel, especially with kids.

Melinda Dunne said...

I love that travel wise is so durable and offers such a great guarantee! That means a lot to me as a consumer.

Jennifer Williams said...

Getting ready for our trip, glad I saw this. The savings on the Travelwise set is perfect! My son loves being able to carry his own things because he is a big boy now. Love these for him.

becca said...

My kids never experience traveling with us. I am kasi a home body and only 2 years ago when I had experience boarding an airplane. ha..ha..ha.. your kids seems travel comfy.

Cyndie said...

This looks like it would be easy to use

April M. said...

April M. said...

Bless said...

It's been a while since we traveled long distance. Good thing you have luggage fit for your kids for them to carry. Looks like they're not complaining at all :-)

lencilicious said...

Love the color and style of that bag. It's great to see that the burritos enjoyed travelling. Their so cute pulling those lovely bags.

zoan said...

My kids love to travel too and I can't wait to go on a trip with them :) The bag looks cute and very good choice for the kids!

Mel Cole said...

Tingting Rimart said...

I plan of buying a small luggage myself. Currently, I am using a duffel bag whenever I travel. The stuff it in are not organized at all.

Cheerful said...

I bet all of you enjoyed your vacation, must be fun! :) and oh, that's a smart choice...at least you got new bag that you can use again and again plus the kids seems enjoying their suitcase. btw, i love those 3 piece packing cube set, i have something similar to that...makes my life easier. :)

Rovie Aguis said...

I really love the idea of traveling with the whole family for it would definitely be a great learning and bonding experience but maye I have to wait till Bella is old enough to appreciate it.

It is good that the Burritos are well -behaved during your travels Sis and love to take care and drag their travel suitcases.

G-boy Laxamana said...

I really love to travel, but the problem is, I'm too busy @ work.. I hope I could travel someday.

Adin B said...

Back here again mommy. You have some lovely photos of your family on your trip. :)

Mai said...

wow, Eat Smart is one generous company. I'm impressed that they give you matching items. That means they're paying attention to the little details.
