How to Enjoy Beach Travel with Toddlers on a Budget

Family Having Fun On BeachHave you done it yet? Have I done what Clearissa? I hear ya, I’ll get on with it. J I am going to write this article from the perspective of a grandparent because that’s what I am, a very proud grandma. They call me MiMi…don’t you love it?
