Last week, our family was scattered all over the place.

I surprised Raleigh with a trip to Chicago for his thirtieth birthday! We had so much fun seeing the city together and catching up with old friends.

While we were up north, Ridley went to the beach with Raleigh's parents and my parents took the girls to Disney World.

It was crazy getting everyone packed and sent their separate ways. A must-have travel companion of all three of my kids are their blankets. Adeline's is a pink minky dot blanket, Maralee's is a yellow check blanket that was mine as a kid, and Ridley's is a super soft blue and white striped Pottery Barn blanket. They seriously can't go anywhere without them! But, I was glad that they had a piece of home since we were so far away.

After four days of fun, we got back into town on Sunday night, just in time for Raleigh to get a Father's Day hug before everyone passed out from traveling. That night, the girls sneaked into our bed (does anyone else's kids do that still?) and Monday morning we woke up to those munchkins snuggled up next to us (with their blankets!). It was so hard to get out of bed and start the day. Even though they kick and twist and twirl, I really do love these sweet little moments.

This week has been rough getting back in the groove of things and I have just really treasured being at home with the kids after work each day. We've caught up on laundry (thank goodness for "all" free clear!) and the blankets have all been washed and dried, ready to be used by our kiddos. I love how "all" free clear is 100% hypoallergenic and how I can wash Ridley's clothes, blankets, and sheets in it, even though his skin is still baby sensitive. I also really like how it makes our clothes smell! It's not a strong fragrance - it is just a fresh, clean smell.

All moms need laundry detergent, especially for their summer traveling laundry. My friends over at "all" free clear are offering a $1 coupon off any all free clear product. Their products include OXI mighty packs, OXI booster, and "all" free clear laundry detergent, fabric softener, and dryer sheets.

Who doesn't love coupons?!

Summer has been so much fun around our house and we are getting ready to hit the road again this weekend. Laundry is a necessity after traveling but it is so worth it to get to make sweet memories as a family. I love having our family "all" back together again! ha :)

"all" free clear is the #1 recommended detergent brand by Dermatologists, Allergists, and Pediatricians for sensitive skin. It's tough on stains yet gentle enough for the whole family. Plus, it's safe for use in standard and HE machines. It rinses clean and has a gentle, hypoallergenic formula. Powerful Clean. Gentle on Skin.

Till next time, let your light shine!
