When packing for our 3 week New England Summer vacation, I allowed few luxuries. I knew at some point, with tired babies, I would end up as the pack mule for every single backpack and roller bag that we had brought along so I packed just enough to get us through four days without doing laundry. One of the few frivolous items I allowed was these adorable new hooded towels from Apple Park. The kids were obsessed with their cute characters and cozy goodness and I knew a little bit of comfort from home would go a long way. Of course they were a hit at the beach, the pool and bath time away from home, but I had underestimated how happy they made the homesick kiddos just used as a cozy blanket on long car rides and outdoor adventures. Sometimes it’s just nice to wrap yourself up in something familiar.
