We are jumping on the Hogwarts Express!

Family Forward

We have an amazing opportunity to attend the Family Forward Retreat at Universal Studios Orlando. Thanks to the awesome Mom It Forward team, along with fabulous sponsors Universal Orlando Resort, Loews Royal Pacific Resort, Southwest Airlines, Cricut, Duct Tape, and National Geographic Kids, we are going to be making fun family memories.

From the Family Forward website:

Family Forward, a 3-day family retreat organized by Mom It Forward for social media influencers AND their families focused on helping families connect in the digital age.​

Family Forward gives families experiences, ideas, and skills to embrace bonding in the digital age through workshops centered on topics like charity, communication, creativity, team building, and trust. Our premise is that whether you are unplugged or are plugged in, you can maximize opportunities to create connections with your family.

This is perfect for my family! We have made it a mission to spend more time together as a family this year. We have been making time to find the fun in our everyday lives as well. We can not wait to participate in the workshops and spend this time together as a family.

Harry Potter

We surprised Jacob and Chloe on Thursday night. I can not believe I was able to keep it in! I could not wait to tell them! We made these Hogwarts Invitations that told the kids to pack their bags! They were in complete shock. They are both HUGE Harry Potter fans. So much so, they both became super emotional and I can’t show the video or they will hate me. We all ended up in tears at one point. But they were happy tears!

As much as the kids are excited for the trip, they can not wait to take a train to get there. Yup. You heard that right. We are taking an Amtrak train to Orlando Florida. 24 hours. Overnight. What were we thinking? I think we might have lost our minds, but I actually think we are going to have fun. We really wanted to make this trip special and have an adventure. We’ll see how it goes!

You can follow along with me and all of the other families at Family Forward by following #FamilyForward on Twitter and on Instagram.

If you follow me on Instagram and Twitter, then you already know I will be tweeting and posting pics through the whole retreat. And if you are not following me, what’s up with that?

Disclosure. I was not asked to post about this trip. I am talking about it because I am super excited! We did receive a generous discount and some fun perks like tickets to Blue Man Group, and a fun dessert party. But I am paying for this out of my very own pocket.
