About Me & My Family
I'm a mother
2 Kids 1-5 years old boys and girls

the arrival of O-dogg completely rocked planet lee back in 2007. we've always loved to travel and got a a better work-out carrying all the extra gear with the extra kid. fast forward 5 years, we were just inches away from being able to board a plane with only carry-ons when KK decided to hit the scene. now we're back to walking the airplane aisles with a toddler.

Worst Travel Moment With My Kids:
Being in a vacation rental with all of our extended family for the holidays. 13 people in all. Was supposed to be a wonderful week of fun, but 10 out of 13 got struck with the stomach virus for a week straight. The lowlights can be summed up in: 4 trips to the ER, 2 IVs for our one year old nephew and a concussion from freeze tag for my brother in-law. What a start to the new year!
