I was recently offered the exclusive opportunity to be part of Santa's Squad for Santa's Village this year! Santa's Village is one of the USA's Top 25 Amusement Parks -- it's the ONLY park listed that's located in New England! As excited as I was for the invitation, my two little boys were even happier! We packed our bags, and headed to Jefferson, New Hampshire. Lincoln and Avery were thrilled their Grammy and Grandpa joined us for the occasion. We were ready for a day of fun!
Burger Meister Food Court, where we were surprised with some magic from Jack Frost...along with the help of Lincoln; and then we were off to more rides!
Rudy's Rapid Transit Coaster, a small roller coaster with lots of zip; and the Yule Log Flume; a log boat ride that gives you a big SPLASH!! I actually was able to capture a fun slow-mo video of the kids on the flume with their Daddy and Grammy. It's fun to see their little faces!!
HoHoH2O, however, it was rainy when we made our way to that area at the end of the day. It did look super fun though. It would be the perfect way to end your visit to cool off!
If you're planning to visit the White Mountain area in New Hampshire, and you're looking for a family friendly theme park, be sure to visit Santa's Village! It will be a joyful experience for your entire family!!
Disclosure: I received complimentary admission to Santa's Village as part of their #SantasSquad. All opinions are my own.

I think we can all agree that summer allows us to slack a bit as far as routines go. Our regular school schedule seriously goes out the window the second school's out. I'm all for (attempting) to sleep in, and letting kids be kids during the summertime. Easing not only your kids, but yourself into your "regular" school schedule can take some getting used to. Here are some tips to help you both!
Gone are the lazy days of summer, and the start of the hustle and bustle of the school year. Have your children go to bed at whatever their school night bedtime will be. Wake them up in the morning, just like they're going to school. Throughout the day you can engage in a few educational activities. Take a break outside to burn off some energy. We all know children thrive on routines. Preparing them before school starts will help them adjust quicker when they actually go back to school.
Get yourself a planner.
I love, love, LOVE my planner. I'm a paper planner girl, but for the past year I also use an app on my phone. You can never be too organized! My planner is my lifeline. Seriously. My husband is even addicted to it. Our lives are busy enough as it is...once the school year rolls around, add even more craziness!
Make back-to-school shopping fun!
Are your kids missing summer vacation before it's even over? Get them excited to go back-to-school, and include them in the shopping! I remember being a little kid and getting SO excited about a special day of shopping with my mom. We've been doing this with Lincoln since he was in preschool, and he just loves it. He's apart of everything -- from clothing to school supplies to his favorite snacks!
Sometimes we all need just a little extra help in the sleep department. I prefer drug-free, non-habit forming alternatives to get a good nights sleep.
