    Ditch the car seats? What?!?!? Did I seriously just say that?? I tend to be Miss Safety, but seriously this product is changing how we do car safety around here, especially for traveling.

                      We don’t get back to Alaska as much as I would love to.  The honest reason?  The tickets are pricey and the cost for our family to travel goes up as the kids get older.  It’s rough, but it’s life.  For this reason, I was super thankful for my parents who generously shared their airline […]
