Spring Break is the best. It's a cold weather glimpse into what we are all looking forward to:  flip flops, swimsuits and summer dresses.   

The only daunting aspect of going on Spring Break is packing! 


Here are 3 easy tips for packing our family that we use on every trip.

1) Make a list. Write out outfits for every person for every day. It sounds a little crazy but if your going out of town for more than 2 days it helps keep you organized and is easy to coordinate outfits for the family. 


2) If packing space is limited, use space bags!  You'd be surprised how much more you can fit in a suitcase. They are sold at pretty much every big box store and are reusable for multiple vacations. 


3) Get the kids involved. My older kids love to help pack and sometimes they know what's in the back of their drawers better than I do. Little ones can round up socks and accessories. Packing together gets everyone excited for the trip! 


This year we hit the road and a few pool parties on our Spring Break in the South.  

Will no patience waiting for the pool to open. He wore his new OshKosh swim trunks, matching flip flops and coordinating polo to his cousins birthday pool party.  


Madeline loves to pose in a cute dress. She wore her OshKosh dress as a coverup over her adorable butterfly tankini. She'll be wearing both all summer long! 


Ellie is the biggest fish in our family. She not only lives to swim but also loves water slides. The bigger the better. 


Her new OshKosh tankini is stylish but practical for all of the pool fun b


I don't know why they say boys clothes are boring. I've fallen in love with dressing Will in OshKosh clothes. One of his uncles even commented that he wants to dress like Will.  


Maybe Oshkosh can expand to men's next season?! 


We hope your Spring Break was as much fun as ours!  To get a head start on your spring clothing shopping, use code SPRING16 or this link to save 25% off your purchase in store or online!
