I’m not unique… like many people, I enjoy travelling. But the truth is, the thought of travelling with a toddler seriously made me want to reconsider my hobbies and interests… only for the time being. New hobby: Avid homebody. Sounds exciting, doesn’t it? Kidding aside, I love my kids and I love experiencing the world with them. However, let’s face it, the toddling years are challenging! Fast forward to today, I’m proud to say we did it and we made it. My daughter just turned two during this trip. Here are the highlights of our travel to Bohol.

The beautiful coastal town of Rockport, Texas has been a favorite weekend destination for many. It’s been two years since Hurricane Harvey hit the area. The town has cleaned up nicely in a very short time. Today, we took a stroll in Downtown Rockport. A little bit of window shopping and a little bit of actual shopping with the kids… The simple joys of life. There are several shops that have unique and cool things to offer. If art interests you, you can also find art galleries in this area. I highly recommend it. Here are photos from today’s walk.

So, when we committed to travel, we had so much research and planning to do.

I was very determined to make breastfeeding work this time and seriously began considering purchasing a portable pump. After much research, I found two wearable breast pumps in today’s market: the Willow and the Elvie. After much research, I decided to opt for the Elvie.
