Disneyland’s PhotoPass vs. MaxPass

Apparently the start of the year brings many hopes and dreams for upcoming Family Vacations for many. Over the last few weeks I’ve been asked so many questions about our Disneyland Vacations over the years I thought I would put a few of the questions into a post. WHY? Because PhotoPass vs. MaxPass is a great questions, that and because Disneyland is INCREDIBLE and they’re worthy of breaking down for those who are asking. Disneyland for us, is not a trip that is booked in a whim. Planning months in advance is ideal to make the most of your families vacation. It’s why I like to share so […]

Crazy Kids Playground in Whistler {VLOG}

SHE ALMOST FLEW OFF; Crazy Kids Playground in Whistler! We love the kids playground in Whistler, it’s actually a lot of what the girls talk about when we get home. It’s built out of real logs with playground parts, like a slide, ladder, pole and swings, but walking past… it’s more of an art piece, remove the childish screams as you walk by and it could totally pass for that. IT’S GORGEOUS is what I am saying, gorgeous and functional, conveniently located next to a Starbucks, so really it’s a parents dream. Thank you Whistler Canada, nice move! One of our favorite parts to Whistler Village, besides […]

Road Trip to Whistler {VLOG}

  It was our annual Road Trip to Whistler; I packed for cold but clear weather… it’s what the weather report told us! But when we arrived… snow covered the village, a snowsuit was a must if you were going outside and toques and gloves were not an option. IT WAS FREEZING! Traveling with kids carries it’s own set of surprises, however this one completely threw us off our game. We were expecting clear skies, cold winds but ABSOLUTELY ZERO chance of snow! We could not have been more wrong! Every year over the Holidays our family bundles up and heads on a Road Trip to Whistler for a […]

Our Annual Whistler Family Vacation

{Nearly} Wordless Wednesday; our annual Whistler Family Vacation has come and gone, but of course I can still relish in all the moments in photographs and video. Our trip is usually surprise-less, and in a good way, we keep it quite simple, stay at the same hotel, eat at the same favorite spots and PLAY HARD. However this year with a diet change, no regular groupon deal offered and a new little one that’s totally and completely mobile, a few minor adjustments were made to the usual Family Vacation. We found the BEST Gluten-Free Pizza Delivery in Whistler, we stayed at a gorgeous Lodge found on VRBO and […]

How to do Whistler Affordably with Kids

We call Whistler our home away from home. Not only the fact that it’s only a 1 hour and 45 minute drive door to door, but because should we have free time as a family, it’s usually when we end up in Whistler. Sammy and I before kids went up there twice a year and we’ve managed to continue on with this travel tradition after kids with a visit in the Summer and again in the Winter.  We’ve done Whistler on a budget, and we’ve done Whistler to the max. Both have been equally as fun, except that time on our Honeymoon, it was a smidgen more […]

Seattle’s 5 Insta-Worthy Selfie Spots

I’m not claiming something you don’t already know, Seattle’s beautiful. What I am doing is showing you 5 INSTA-WORTHY SELFIE SPOTS you must visit (and instagram) the next time you get to the city. The list could’ve been made a MILE long, with so many gorgeous angles to share the city, I’ve managed to narrow it down to my top 5 spots I like to SNAP, FILTER and HASHTAG at an arms length in Seattle. Seattle is by far our families favorite road trip destination, offering something for everyone from the Woodland Park Zoo, to Everett Kids Museum, Trader Joe’s, Pike Place Market and of course Target (because […]

The Best of Our California Vacation

I wanted to make sure I got something out to you all RIGHT AWAY (because who likes waiting?). I went through the 1,089 pictures (not at all overboard) and chose 30 fun shots taken from the 10 days away that should give you a good idea of how the trip went overall. We visited Disneyland, we tackled California Adventure, we outlet shopped, made our way to Santa Monica Pier, had a few pool days and even a down day (or two). I think we made the most of the California sun and are looking forward to the day that we can return.  I’ve made a few notes on the images […]

Let the VLOGGING begin

After much deliberation and anticipation (on my end; sorry) we finally got the ball rolling and our YouTube Channel, Delightful Chaos, and things are on a roll! We vlogged our ENTIRE TRIP from our days at Disneyland, to California Adventure Park and even a little visit to Santa Monica Pier.  Vlog 002 //Disneyland Adventures (napping in Disneyland) Vlog 003 //California Adventure Park (flying high without telling dad) Vlog 004 //Santa Monica Pier (burgers for babies) Vlog 005 //Disney Adventures (picky eater breakthrough) We made memories that will last a lifetime, and thankfully I made a point to pull out my video camera at every moment I could so that […]
