Tiny Tour: Southern Utah

By Emily. Happy Saturday! Now let me preface this post is in NO WAY comprehensive, in fact it is maybe as far from it as you can get, but I had so many DMs and questions about our three-day weekend in Southern Utah I thought I’d share how we made the trip a little more doable for our family of 5 which includes a 10 month old baby who naps 3-4 times a day. If there’s one thing I’ve learned as a parent its that you just have to lower your expectations. Trying to jam pack too much in is … Read more

hyatt ziva cancún!

By Emily. Oh, Mexico! Are you singing James Taylor yet? Last week (if you follow us on Instagram – @smallfryblog – you know I was the lucky Fry that got to attend the Grand Opening for Hyatt’s newest family-friendly all-inclusive resort in Cancún, Mexico! It opened just in November and the Hyatt Ziva Cancún stole our hearts in a major way. It was in the perfect mid-eighties, partly cloudy (not too hot!) and gorgeous. Here’s some of the highlights of our stay! Lots of pics, so catch them all, the wardrobe links and more, after the jump!   If you’re looking … Read more

Stockholm, Sweden was never a place I’d imagined would be dear to me, but here we are, nearly five months in this country and I already know that I’ll be nostalgic for the fabric on the bus seats, the magical light of sunset that lasts for hours and hours, the way we can walk in … Read more

FRYday: Emily

My little family and I recently took a family vacation to Nashville, Tennessee to see two of my siblings who live in the most darling city outside Nashville called Franklin. I can’t adequately express just how darling Franklin is, but when one evening we were all out in the yard, surrounded by brightly painted shuttered houses, running underneath blooming Magnolia trees, filling Mason jars with lightning bugs… let’s just say you can die of charm, and I was pretty close to flatlining. From what I gathered from being in the South, everyone we met and interacted with was so nice. … Read more

Tiny Tour : Chicago

This post is sponsored by Warner Bros. Pictures through their partnership with POPSUGAR. We received compensation by POPSUGAR to write a post about Blended and as always, all opinions are our own.

The movie is all about how two unlikely families bond on the accidental shared African safari trip of a lifetime. (Drew’s character and her two crazy boys are reminding us of someone?) Getting family to bond is such a tricky thing, and sometimes you can’t … Read more

Tiny Tour : North Shore, Hawaii
