We kicked off Summer with a fun family vacation out to Phoenix, Arizona to see new and old cousins, Aunts and Uncles and Grandparents! It was a lot of fun and Luke loved swimming in the pool since it was HOT every day at about 108 degrees every day! It was really nice to see all the cousins together again. We managed to get them all together for a picture….all wearing Arizona t-shirts!
Phoenix was a fun new city for us to explore, one of my favorite things about our trip was where we stayed. They had a nice pool and within walking distance from our townhouse were lots of fun shops and restaurants. It was nice to take the kids there for lunch one day and we discovered a fun splash park with lots of covered areas I could sit with Emma while we watched Luke and his cousins run around in the water!
We usually end up doing driving vacations and I don’t have to limit what I bring so I was pretty stressed out packing everything we needed, knowing US Airways would charge for checking suitcases (and an extra $75 for going over 50lbs!). We ended up checking 2 bags, which was a total of $50 one way. (I hate flying.) Thank goodness my Sister-in-law found this great local rental company for all things baby related called Anything For Baby. It really put my mind at ease knowing they would be bringing some things for Emma once we arrived!
Basically, you can rent anything you need for your baby while you’re in town! They were so nice and friendly and had an impressive selection of baby equipment that I could choose from to use for the week we were there. You tell them when and where you are and they will bring to your door all the comforts of home for your baby! They brought me a high chair for Emma, a basket full of toys, an exersaucer and a play mat. The townhouse my parents had rented had all wood floors, I don’t know who was more excited to see the exersaucer…me or Emma!
They were on time with their delivery and I loved the selection they had to choose from on their website. It really made the whole trip for us less stressful because it was less we had to pack knowing they would take care of bringing so much for Emma. You could rent anything from car seats, baby swings, full size cribs, bath seats, strollers, pool toys, kids bikes, monitors, breast pumps and even stair gates! This is the best service you could give to a traveling family! They break down their prices from daily, weekly and then monthly. If you are ever in the Phoenix area, be sure to check them out! They were so easy to work with and everything that came was in great condition and CLEAN! I highly recommend them! Anyone who makes traveling with young children a little easier is worth their weight in gold! Thanks Anything For Baby! I have since heard from other Moms they also have similar places in Orlando, have you ever used a similar rental company while traveling with kids?
