Tamera shared she loves traveling with her family but admits it's not always easy. Like many other parents, she's had to deal with toddler meltdowns and other challenges of family travel. She recommends taking along toys and other things (like an ipad) that keep kids occupied and happy.

Tamera also shared a few mom hacks to help make families lives easier while traveling.

Ziplock baggies are good for keeping and carrying personal items while traveling. Liquids won't spill in suitcase and ruin clothing. Also any kid discovered items like sea shells wont spill sand etc and can be found easily. Lastly these bags can used to keep clothing that needs to be laundry separated from clean clothing when packing to return home.

      9. Ziplock baggies are also useful for leftover food you can't finish while traveling. We also use them to keep toiletries so the rest of our things inside the bag won't get wet.
