spring breakers

Sponsored by Amazon. T-Minus 10 days until Spring Break. Who’s counting? I am. We need a vacation SO bad and somehow we lucked out and Russ is coming along! Typically the boys’ school break is during his busy season, so I’ll take the kids solo somewhere. This year he lined up the work on the house so he could sneak away, too! The poor guy has been putting in 15 hour days for months now and there’s no sign of stopping until the house is finished. As hard as manual labor is on a body, being a mom solo all … Read more

Traveling with Baby

By Emily in partnership with Ergo. We’ve got Spring Break on the brain and fly miles to burn and so today is all about traveling with baby! I’ve already started using both the new Sophie La Giraffe 360 Carrier and their chic new Anywhere I Go Backpack (available exclusively at Babies R Us until March) but I keep thinking about a solo flight I took with Raleigh and how much easier my life would’ve have been with both. Here’s what I’ll be taking next time around!  Left to Right Top to Bottom: First thing, if you’re on baby duty wear slip-on shoes. Something … Read more

Nickelodeon Resort Punta Cana

By Jenna. Back in August we were so privileged to represent Small Fry at the Nickelodeon Resort Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic! It was MAGIC. Seriously we felt so blessed to have this opportunity on behalf of SF. We are always looking for ways to vacation with our kids that make it as easy as possible, although we know traveling with kids is never really easy is it? 😉When we arrived we were met with a green drink (just some fun Nick juice for the kids) and a smile. The staff at this resort was absolutely incredible. SO kind … 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

FRYday: Emily

I get today’s Fryday solo today, urged by the girls to share about my 10 year anniversary trip to Europe last week with my main squeeze! If you’d like to see, here are a few highlights! This trip was in the works for several months and as we got closer we knew we wanted to unplug for the trip. We both work for ourselves in a handful of businesses and being self-employed sometimes means erratic hours, no days off, and always something to be done. So the trip was 100% a vacation from all that. We deleted social media apps, didn’t … Read more

FRYday: NYC edition

In tandem with our NYC party post we wanted to dedicate today’s Fryday to our trip! Give you an inside look at each of favorite our notable moments. We are so grateful to Munchkin and June + January for believing in us and helping us throw such a fun party!  EMILY: Wearing: Here’s the run down of some of the outfits from the trip! Maybe cheesy to wear an NYC Tee in NYC but loved this sporty crop with my high-waisted jeans and high-tops! Worn with last years Zara anorak and orange Ray-Bans. // All black one day with these … Read more

jacadi: get schooled

Earlier this Summer we fell hard for Jacadi – a French line of clothes for kids – and just when we thought it couldn’t get any cuter we stumbled upon their new Get Schooled section of their website that is devoted to teaching children about the differences and similarities of French and American culture. We sat down individually with our kids going over each lesson and they were fascinated! We love being able to broaden their horizons and teach them about other cultures. We know so many of you do too, so we had to share it with you guys! Here’s … Read more

#grandstaycation

If you follow us on Instagram – @smallfryblog – you saw that we spent the weekend at our favorite (and only!) 5 Diamond Hotel in Salt Lake City, The Grand America! We have had the pleasure of staying there a few other times and it is our favorite escape to take with our families. Our weekend stay was sponsored by them specifically to review their Poolside Movies and we’re excited to share our review! Luckily there’s still one more next Saturday, August 29th, so you locals still have a chance to go check out this awesome family event! How magical is this? … Read more

tiny tour: Stockholm, Sweden

Hi!  My name is Ashley Mae and I am delighted to be here sharing a bit about my time in Sweden.  We are here as part of my husband’s PhD studies for five months. You can see more photos of our adventure on Instagram @birdsofashmae. 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

best travel buddies

Now that school is out we’re excited to take some family vacations! Traveling with kids is a completely different animal and should probably not be called a vacation, maybe just classified as a trip! It’s a lot of work, but something we each feel is so important. They don’t have to be extravagant or expensive or far away, but having that quality time taking in a new environment and new experiences is a fond memory we each had as kids and want to pass it onto the boys! Here’s some things we’ve found for traveling with them that have helped … Read more
