My name is Alli Matthews. I’m a mom of four and the creator of this family travel blog. In my past life, I have had careers as a lawyer, art teacher, and singer-songwriter. My husband, Dave, and I have been traveling since we met and having four kids has not stopped us. Taking big family trips has become one of our favorite things to do, and we love experiencing new cities with our children. Traveling with four kids means big EVERYTHING! The transportation mode is big, the accommodations are huge, and the price tag is staggering. But, the smiles and laughs are the biggest and they eclipse the blunders and meltdowns. I’m here to share our travel successes ( and not-so-successes) to help you plan for your next big trip with however many teenies/littles/tweens/bigs that you have. I will be posting tips and reflections about cruise vacations, Disney vacations, quick weekend getaways in the US, longer trips abroad, our favorite city highlights, best kid-friendly (and gluten-free friendly) restaurants, favorite hotels (for large families), and best tour companies and guides. Enjoy the site and welcome to my blog! Hope to hear from you!
