Being on vacation means easing into a new routine that works wherever you are. On this trip, we fell into a routine of taking the kids to the beach after dinner. The beach was much quieter than it is during the day and I didn't need to be overly concerned about sunscreen or heat.

Better than that, though, was what it did for the kids. The soothing waves and sand were such a nice way to wind down after a busy day. They were so satisfied and tired by the time we got them back to the hotel, that this was one of the few trips where we didn't have much trouble getting them to sleep.

        That would be the perfect way to lull kids to sleep! Beautiful!

        That is one of the most important things I discovered about traveling with kids: taking them to places where they can have tons of fun so they are ready to sleep as soon as we get back to the hotel.

        Oops, I linked to my homepage instead of directly to my photo. Sorry about that! If you want to take down my link you can. Don't see a way to fix it myself or I would.

        I agree that finding a new routine is the way forward while on holiday. Trying to stick too rigidly to how things are at home isn't much of a holiday!
