There’s weekend travel (families) and there’s summer travel (families) and then there’s summer weekend travel (too many families!) It’s that time of year, people.

It stands for child aviation restraint system. What this means is if your little one is between 22-44 pounds you can ditch the cumbersome car seat. Pictured on the right is my four year-old, my favorite traveling partner in the world – we were flying to New York last week. We’ve been using CARES for two years now and it’s STILL the best invention for kids on the airplane. To find out more, check out this Galley Gossip post I wrote last year.
