Family Activities With Your Kids On A Cruise Vacation

Have you ever had a week without a single dull moment? I recently did. The kids and I went on a memorable vacation in the Caribbean. We set sail aboard the Carnival Cruise ship for 7 days. It was an entire week of fun, sun and family time. I can honestly tell you that my vacation in the Caribbean was nothing short of amazing. With all of the fun and entertainment offered on our trip, from the excitement happening on board to exploring the great cities off the ship, we had a an incredible week.

S'mores Party Mix

S'mores are a staple of summer time snacks and traditions. Summers in America are spent with friends and family, celebrating and remembering what makes this county so great. As a second generation Hispanic American, I love celebrating the 4th of July with family, great food and fireworks. Roasting S'mores over a campfire has become a favorite summer tradition of ours. No need for an outdoor campfire if you're in the mood for S'mores, you can easily re-create the delicious snack with some Honey Maid Teddy Grahams, chocolate and marshmallows.

No matter how things change, what makes us wholesome never will.  Honey Maid provides wholesome snacks for every wholesome family.

What's the most important thing you can have in your summer tote and why? Sunscreen. It does more than protect against sunburns, it protects against long-term effects that are not always visible, like skin damage and skin cancer.

Summer has just begun and the kids and I have already enjoyed many outdoor activities creating amazing memories so far. With much of the fun and busy summer still ahead of us, it's important that I have all we need to enjoy our sunny days. Whether we're headed to the beach, water park or the pool, I take my tote that's filled with all my summer essentials. I have everything I need from sun protection to my water-proof camera so that I can capture some awesome photos to look back on.

How to plan a Vacation on a Budget

Family vacations are important to us because they're an opportunity to spend time with our loved ones and create memories for us to look back on for many years to come. During the warm days of summer, many families, couples, and friends enjoy vacationing together for some fun in the sun and relaxation. Creating memories with those you love in beautiful cities around the world do not need to come with an expensive price tag. In order to create lasting memories, family vacations do not need to be all about extravagance and high cost ... or least not high cost.
