Kassie Caught the Travel Bug

Travel…the sound is so sweet and just rolls off the tongue. This has been a simple passion of mine that was set into place as a baby by my amazing parents. My grandparents did the “snowbird” thing and went to Yuma, Arizona, every winter. We drove and flew to this beautiful border town every few years during Christmastime and I loved it – even the three-day trips to get to the desert!

Toddler All-Inclusive Vacations Offer Something for the Whole Family!

Just imagine taking your family to Mexico and while you and your significant other get a couples massage your little one gets to play with other children in a safe, fun, supervised area. Afterwards, your whole family can gather together again for family time on the beach! It’s the best of both worlds – family vacation time and an hour to yourselves to enjoy a relaxing massage. Ahhh… sounds perfect, right?! And that’s just one example of what you can experience at a “Toddler All-Inclusive” resort!
