Great capture by @rcla1983 yesterday on our architecture cruise tour with @chicagolinecruises. It was such a fun way to see the city and fit well with our art & architecture theme of the day. We've been loving all there is to see in Chicago and the overall look of the city - so very different from LA or the other cities we've visited along the way. But I think the highlight for the kids has been our awesome @guesttoguest house - tons of space to spread out and feel at home! Look for more info coming up on the blog. #chicago #hosted #thefamilyvoyage

Sneak peek of the new Safe Traffic System Inc. Ride Safer Delight Travel Vest provided to us by Safe Ride 4 Kids. He's not ready to ride on a compact backless booster just yet. The vest exceeds crash test standards for forward-facing harnesses, but folds up small enough to fit in his little backpack with plenty more room for toys. No worries that the car rental company won't have the right seat. Europe, here we come! Look for a full review on the blog once we've had a chance to road test it during our trip :-) #sponsored

A few months ago I tested a wide range of women's backpacks for travel. Here's a follow-up review on the one I selected, hosted by Her Packing List:

Melissa found a backpack that fit her petite frame, stored enough for family travel, and was carry-on friendly. Read her Thule Versant 60L backpack review.

Today's first #Chicago exploration stop was the Art Institute of Chicago. What a museum! We loved both the layout and the collection. Family favorites included Jackson Pollack, the American millefiori paperweights and the Chagall windows. Highly recommend, just allow yourselves a good few hours. This fun pic was a true candid courtesy of our youngest photographer, Shoshana! Baby girl has a good eye. @artinstitutechi #thefamilyvoyage

Perhaps one of our coolest stops so far on our great American #roadtrip was the @tulsaglassblowingschool, a non-profit dedicated to teaching vets the art of glassblowing. For almost two hours we got to watch them hone their craft and hear their stories about learning glass, serving our country, and life in Tulsa. Can't recommend it enough! Thank you for your service and your hospitality, friends! #thefamilyvoyage

Fun afternoon exploring the Woodie Guthrie Center and playing on Guthrie Green. One of the first musicians to work as a social justice advocate, he addressed the plight of Okie migrant workers in California among many other issues. The main exhibit is full of interactive stations that the kids loved! #familytravel #visittulsa #tulsa #oklahoma #woodieguthrie #thismachinekillsfacists #thefamilyvoyage

Stopping in Amarillo? Check out Cadillac Ranch for a quick stop. I can't say the kids appreciated the art installation as much as we expected, but they had a great time with the remnant spray paint can tops 😂 #visittexas #amarillo #cadillacranch #thefamilyvoyage

Lunch with a view! We're spending the day exploring @abqbiopark. We've seen some amazing African animals, dined with sharks and now we're playing hide and seek the beautiful botanical gardens. Even better: used our @santabarbarazoo membership to score half off of the combo ticket price! @visitabq @newmexico #thefamilyvoyage

All packed up and on the road to New Mexico (kudos to Ronnie for driving through the pouring rain).

Quick tip for our fellow traveling families... Are you a member of your local museum, zoo or aquarium? If so, bring those cards when you travel! Most museums are part of a national network that will grant you reciprocal admission (either free or 50% off). We've been traveling for less than a week and already gotten free admission twice.

Here are some great networks to check o...ut:
Science museums http://www.astc.org/passport/
Children's museums http://www.childrensmuseums.org/ch…/find-a-childrens-museum/
Zoos and aquariums https://www.aza.org/find-a-zoo-or-aquarium
