In this house, we love the Lego Brand. We actually just got the Lego Batman Movie DVD (and watched it on a recent car trip) and we were so lucky to have visited Legoland Florida twice this past winter. I do miss my New York family that migrated south to Orlando, but having cousins in Florida does have its perks! So use Lego-lovers were so excited to be invited to revisit the Legoland Discovery Center in Westchester, New York to spend a day riding, building and exploring!

I am so excited to have another guest post by Claire Hastings. I personally have a love/hate relationship with packing. I am efficient, but would not call myself a minimalist by any means! If you are curious how I pack, click here. But read through for Claire’s awesome tips on how to pack when space is at a premium!

My family loves amusement parks and my kids love rides. They also can’t get enough of the pool! So I knew this summer we wanted to try a full-on water park for the first time. This week we decided to venture to Splish Splash in Calverton, New York for an awesome day of water rides!

June might very well be my favorite month… its finally warm and summery here on Long Island! The kids are done with school and we are definitely in summer mode! If you missed it, definitely check out my posts on Must-Have Pool Items and my Beach Essentials, where I give you my best gear and tips for my two favorite summer activities!

This month started with a trip – baby girl and I went to North Carolina, our second home. I’m hoping to get my best of the Raleigh post up soon! I’ve also been hosting some guest bloggers, and their posts have been insanely popular! I love reading, editing and curating content. I also was interviewed by Corey from Fifi+Hop about my month long Hawaiian adventure.

But on to my June Stuff I Love! This month I have three great outdoor things that I am totally loving! Happy almost 4th of July, and happy summer!

You all know I love the beach and pool, but another summer (and spring/fall) activity that our family loves is to visit theme parks! This past winter we were lucky enough to visit Legoland Florida twice, have a brunch at Chef Mickey at Walt Disney World, and have visited our local amusement park, Adventureland, many times.

One park that has always made our summer must-do list is Sesame Place in Langhorne, Pennsylvania. I honestly do not think we will go this year, for the first time in 5 summers! I am a bit sad about this! But my guys have “graduated” to a bigger water park (we have a Splish Splash visit scheduled in a couple of weeks), but we have gone to Sesame for the past five summers and I am thrilled to share my tips to help younger families plan their most awesome Sesame Place trip.

I am a beach girl. I can sit in the sand literally all day. My kids love the beach too, but we also spend a lot of summer days at the pool. Honestly, managing elementary age kids in a pool is often easier than keeping them safe on a large beach and in the ocean.

When we head to the beach, I have the packing down. If you missed it, read my beach essentials post here, everything you need to bring and great packing tips too! Today, I am going to share with you our must-haves for your day out at the local pool!

I love traveling with my little ones, but sometimes mom and dad need a vacation! Last fall we took a longer getaway to Las Vegas, and recently we went on short holiday to the North Fork of Long Island.
