    Does anyone know where I can purchase a swimsuit like Lola’s with shorts and a rash guard? My ten year old fair-skinned sweetie prefers shorts to swim and it’s been nearly impossible to find them! Thanks for any help and we love waking up to new videos!

    This is SO awesome! We just got back from a "trip" with 7 year old and 2 year old, 3 hotels lots of crying later…. Nuff said….we will need to do this next time!

  15. Post author

    I just realized I've never been on a vacation. 😳

    I appreciate the way y'all are clearly having fun with this! Too many family channels feel forced and insincere, but not here!

  16. Maggie Reid Post author

    I feel like you really don't know the difference until you have kids, try to go on your first "trip" and realize how truly awful it is. Seems like you guys had a lot of fun!

  17. Amanda B Post author

    Exactly my thoughts as we plan out the summer. Unpack once, no driving, walk to everything! All inclusive places are awesome

  18. Jul L. Post author

    This was awesome. Too bad I know trips way too well since my family lives away from my family and my dad is in the Military so…

  19. Weird Heather Post author

    Omg cool, i wish a cruise line would sponsor my videos.I was trying to work out what company it was the whole time lol. I’ve only ever sailed Royal Caribbean before. 😂

  20. Hillery Potter Post author

    My husband calls our trips “destination babysitting.” Lol! We have four kids. Thankfully they are all out of diapers now. We are going for two weeks to Washington state and California. We live in Tennessee. There will be both a lot of driving and flying and packing and unpacking. Hopefully a little bit of relaxing too!

  21. Cheryl Mantle Post author

    Looks like a lot of fun!!!! Can’t wait to see more videos of the cruise!!!! 🚢

    Another difference is the budget. A vacation usually costs more, but if it works out, it's well worth it.

    Just returned from our Cruise April 30th.  Vacation or not, with kids we need another week to recover from all the hyper excitement overload.  We're exhausted. 🙂    Great video!

  36. Zeidie Sisk Post author

    Guys! This is totally one of your BEST videos to date! That zipline looked like Wild Florida. I think it's time our kids enjoy some cruise kids clubs. We haven't gone on a cruise since our honeymoon, 14 years ago! 😖 Time to stop taking trips and go on vacation!

  37. Addy Healy Post author

    You guys should do a parody to Whatever it Takes by Imagine Dragons, or to Good Morning by Max Frost! I also have a suggestion for the name of the first one: Whenever He Bakes! 😀 Thanks!

    for trips to make them less bad do what my familly does and we have a bag with clothes for each day and a bag for PJs that way you only need to get out 1 small bag each day
