One trick that makes travel with kids easier
If you have been following me for a while then you know that I love travelling with my kids. Just this year we went together to Cuba, Poland and lastly on a week of a road trip around the Gaspe Peninsula in Quebec. And while I’m the first to admit that it’s not always easy, I really believe that traveling with kids is like deposing coins of happiness into their inner bank of memories! I think that nothing really can replace the bonding that happens while we travel as a family. And I’m convinced that nothing can grow their curiosity more than exploring new places and trying new foods. Not to mention how it can open their minds on new cultures just by seeing all the different ways in which people live around the world.

But being honest, regardless of all the benefits of travel, the transfer part from place A to place B with kids is always the one that’s most complicated, and the one I used to dread the most. And what I really used to hate was caring big car seats with me all the time, like this last time in Poland! I had to carry car seats with me everywhere! It was so tiring. And then there where times when we couldn’t go somewhere only because we didn’t have that big car seat with us. Not to mention the frustration of trying to install the car seat in the new car. I’m sure you’ve been there too!
So you can only imagine my excitement when I discovered the Mifold booster seat at my local Canadian Tire! It’s small and foldable, fits in my purse or in my daughters little backpack, takes minutes to install, and makes travel and changing cars a breeze!
My five-year old Lili learned pretty quickly how to attach herself, and if you’ll look at her sitting next to her sister in the car, then you’ll see the real difference in space that this seat makes in the car!
So on our recent trip to Gaspesie, Lili was in charge of her car seat, and she could easily switch from our car to her grandparents car, and travel with whomever she felt like that day!
And I just love this car seat for how it facilitated our travel! Not to mention that it’s safe, practical, and can be used by the kids of age four and up. So as you can imagine, I’m already planning more family adventures for us this summer!
