Earlier this year, one of my childhood friends suggested that we take a couple’s trip to Mexico, no kids. It was one of those conversations which sounds like a dream, one that you have with your friends and say, “yeah that would be amazing,” but could we really pull it off? The other question that came up for all of us, was could we leave our kids for a week? It turns out this dream conversation turned into reality this July and my husband and I feel it is one of the best vacations we have taken. There are many reasons why it was great for us to take a no kid vacation and many reasons why it was great for my kids to have their parents take a no kid vacation.

Here are a few tips that I have found to help keep the house and family organized and on track.
