Tips for traveling with kids  on a budget @ jaxinthebox.comIf you live in a cold winter climate like I do, you are so ready for summer.  This winter has been the worst. As the thermometer climbs and the snow melts, I am actually thankful to see the scattered trash appear under the heaps of ice — a sight that usually makes me recite the lines of my boys’ favorite preschool book: Trashy Town(more…)
