Garcia Family Travel


As Summer 2017 comes to a close, I can’t help but look back on all the beautiful memories made and be so thankful. Our little family of 5 had so many fun adventures with family and friends, from a vacation to San Diego, staycations in Scottsdale, trips to Tucson, and lake days! Since summer is almost over, I wanted to share some highlights from our summer! SUMMER ’17 RECAP This summer was a summer of growth for my husband and I.…

Our Favorite Beach Snack

As you might have heard, it’s currently 117-120 degrees in Arizona. This is the part of summer where even the pool can’t cool you off, so you just hibernate or skip town. We got tired of hibernating and headed to one of our favorite cities ever… San Diego! San Diego is our go-to vacay spot for a few reasons. 1) It’s only a 5 and a half hour drive away. 2) We love Mission Beach and Coronado Island! 3) The…

FAMILY FUN: Bannor Toys’ Wooden Board Game

Who loves board games? I grew up playing board games all the time, it was our favorite family past-time. So many nights spent eating chips and salsa and playing monopoly or life. Now that I have a family of my own, my husband and I regularly play games but the kids can rarely partake because we haven’t been able to find games they really like. For example, the pieface incident. But Bannor Toys sent us one of their newest releases…

The Scott Resort & Spa

One of the things I love about living near Scottsdale, Arizona is the abundance of incredible restaurants, shopping and resorts. We love planning “stay-cations” in Scottsdale every few months to get away! A few weekends ago, we had to go to Phoenix for Deuce’s PCH appointments, so we made a weekend out of it! The Scott Resort & Spa was kind enough to host us and we had an amazing weekend. We ate breakfast at the resort restaurant and spent the rest…

Summer Clothing For Kids {with Kohl’s}

This post is sponsored by Kohl’s. Summer is HERE!! At least it is in Arizona. Temperatures are already in the 100’s and we are melting faster than you can say “let’s go to the pool!” When it comes to dressing the kids for summer weather, it’s all about balance. You need clothing that’s play-proof and durable for those endless summer activities, but still cute enough that you’re not sacrificing style for comfort. At Kohl’s, you don’t have to make that…

Our Playroom Reveal

It’s been a little over two months since we moved into our new house and we have been working on each room slowly. A little slower than I had intended, lol. But it’s coming along and I am so excited to share one of my favorite rooms in the entire house… the playroom! We didn’t really have a “theme” for the playroom. I just wanted it to be bright and fun and functional for the kids. I love how it…

Here we go again…

You may have seen (from Instagram stories) that we’ve spent a lot of time at the hospital this week. I have done my best to be an open book and share as much as possible when it comes to Deuce’s condition, because it’s so rare and I believe in advocacy and raising awareness. But writing this update is excruciating and I have been putting it off for days. I’ve been getting lots of messages from family and friends asking for…

A Little Family Update

Hey friends! It’s been a while since I posted a little family update and it seemed like the perfect time to do so. Yesterday, we took Deuce for a check up and his doctor let us know that his condition has progressed, so he will be seeing his neurosurgeon and plastic surgeon again in the next few weeks. We will also be seeing an optometrist. Besides all that, he’s literally the sweetest and we are so obsessed with him and…

Deuce’s Baseball 1st Birthday Party!

Last weekend, we hosted Deuce’s first birthday party at our new home and had the best time! We chose a baseball theme and it turned out so cute! I am still in awe that my baby boy is ONE, it seems unreal. His first year has flown by and he still seems like a baby to me! He had so much fun at his party and loved his smash cake. His sisters probably enjoyed the party more than anyone… they…

The Strawberry Inn + 10 Things To Do in Strawberry, AZ

Last week we spent three days in Strawberry, Arizona (about 2 hours north of PHX) and had a blast. This trip was different in so many ways and is probably the first “relaxing trip” we have ever taken. We left on Wednesday and stayed until Friday afternoon (Thursday was Deuce’s birthday so it was the perfect excuse to getaway)! We loved that we didn’t have a set schedule and were really just able to explore and enjoy it all. I highly…
