Upcoming Trips

We kicked off our 2022 travels with a trip to Hawaii in February, where we stayed at Aulani for 11 nights! It was amazing and you can definitely expect to find more posts to come on that trip. But in the meantime, here are some of our upcoming trips to look out for!

April 2022

We are traveling to Disney World and will be staying at the Riviera Resort, one of the newest hotels on-property. After 4 fun-filled days at Disney, we’ll then be off to go on a 7 night Caribbean cruise out of Ft. Lauderdale on the biggest cruise ship in the world—the Wonder of the Seas! We’ll be traveling to Rotan, Cozumel, Puerto Costa Maya, and CocoCay. Since we will staying in a 2-bedroom aqua theater suite, we will have our own “Genie” (similar to a butler/valet/concierge) to help make this cruise extra special.

Unfortunately, Dad won’t be able to come along this time (we do have to work regular jobs sometimes 😉), so this trip will just be Mom and the two little boys. Our extended family will be along as well so Grandma, Grandpa, Aunt(s), and Uncle will be able to help Mom out with the boys from time to time. Dad will stay caught-up on the daily adventures through FaceTime.

July 2022

We are going on a 17-hour (one way) road trip from Colorado to Rhinelander, Wisconsin over 4th of July Weekend for a family reunion at the lake. We’ll be traveling about 2,300 miles (RT) through Nebraska, Iowa, Minnesota, and Wisconsin, so stay tuned for a post on what works (and what doesn’t!) when road tripping with two preschoolers 🤪. Nonetheless, we’re excited spend some time with family we haven’t seen in awhile!

July/August 2022

This is the BIG trip planned for 2022! We will be flying to Amsterdam for one night before disembarking on a Royal Caribbean cruise to Norway for 12 nights. As this is our boys’ first trip to Europe and our first trip back since our honeymoon, we are super excited! We were originally supposed to go in 2021, but (as with most things during the pandemic) it got cancelled and rescheduled. Stay tuned for tips on international family travel!

Hello, we are the Phelps family and we are from Colorado. We love to travel and to share our tips and tricks with others who share our passion as well as with those who may just need a little advice or inspiration. Some people may think that traveling as a young family with small children is too stressful (believe us, it does have its moments! 😉) but it’s always worth it and our boys love it too!

Our two favorite trips are going to Disney World and cruising. We are Disney World annual pass holders and Royal Caribbean diamond club members and we usually have a couple trips to look forward to in our plans. We also love visiting new places! So far we’ve logged 11 different countries and 18 US states, and the list keeps growing. Most of the time we all travel together, but sometimes we take trips with just a portion of the crew (just mom/dad and the boys, mom/dad and one boy, mom and dad and no boys…). No matter what, we can always share the memories.

The travel restrictions and lockdowns beginning in 2020 sure were tough for a family who loves to travel, but little by little places have started opening up again and we are learning how to navigate these new waters. Starting to travel after the pandemic can be intimidating, but we’ll be posting how to put your mind at ease or even give you inspiration to travel again. Come join us on the adventure!
