^^ She picked out her outfit. I got as far as the piggie tails and her shirt before she took over and insisted just a diaper, her Aerial necklace and pink boots.

We got home from Disneyland with family earlier this week and we had such a magical time! It was so fun to experience it all over again through Isla Rose! She was wide-eyed the whole time and ran wild, Drew and I were exhausted after each day of chasing her down everywhere. That child has no fear!
Taking a toddler to Disneyland can sometimes be challenging (they tend to melt down, especially Isla) so here are some of my tips:
- Take a stroller that reclines and is comfortable (when we could tell she was getting tired we would lay her back and give her a bottle). She would get in a 30 min-hour nap at the park when we did this.
- Bring one of their favorite blankets (Isla calls her blanket her baby). It helped her fall asleep in the stroller or whenever she was about to have a meltdown we could sooth her with her "baby."
- Bring snacks!!!! One of the best ways to a toddler's heart are yummy snacks... At least in Isla and Cannon's case! It's hard to negotiate with a 2 year old but snacks always help. Last time we were in Disneyland I didn't bring any snacks from home so we didn't have many options, let alone healthy options to give to Isla. This time I packed a ton of different snacks for her so we could minimize the popcorn and churro purchases (although we still had a few!).
About a month ago Pure Growth Organic sent me a big box of snacks for Isla that I started taking them with me to church. Isla and Cannon (my nephew) went through them in a heartbeat so I had them send me more for Disneyland which was super fitting because they have Disney characters on them! It was the perfect go-to treat for them on the plane and while we were in Disneyland, but they've also become a staple in my pantry. I keep a snack basket in my pantry (my favorite part of the pantry!! ;) and now we always have Pure Growth Organic snacks piled in there! As a mom I'm super consciences about what snacks I give my kids. If there's an organic option I always buy them so when I saw that these were organic I was really excited, plus Isla loves them! You can find them at Walmart and Amazon.
What are some of your traveling tips and favorite snacks for your kids? I'd love to hear!
Thanks for stopping by!
