Common Core Labels Correlations:

At the start of the new year, our family took a few days from my brother's destination wedding to visit Vientiane, Laos. Unfortunately, all three of us caught a severe flu the day we were flying in from the states. I spent one of our three days in Laos dying in my bed and the rest in a haze. It was regrettable because Vientiane was beautiful and I wasn't able to capture it in a way that I thought did it justice. The food was excellent, and the people were tremendously kind. It's been said that the people in Laos love children and it was proven time and time again whenever they saw our daughter.Read more on about our trip on the blog...https://www.califoreigners.com..../laos-travel-video/- Links = Check out our Blog http://califoreigners.com Follow us on Twitter http://twitter.com/califoreigners Follow us on Facebook http://facebook.com/califoreigners Follow us on Instagram http://instagram.com/thecaliforeignersOur Must-Have Items When We Adventure Out With Our Kids: Lip Sunscreen ~ https://amzn.to/3ieM58m Face Sunscreen ~ https://amzn.to/3wCazNaSunscreen ~ https://amzn.to/3i6tdaK or https://amzn.to/2XRhw1c Insect Repellent ~ Zoe OrganicsBug Bite Suction ~ https://amzn.to/3kcW0gp (works if used immediately)Bug Bite Relief Ointment ~ https://amzn.to/2UMKhdSHand Wipes ~ https://amzn.to/3hD6vrsAdult mask ~ https://amzn.to/3COIGEYKids mask ~ https://amzn.to/3ES9eHn (size small)Water Wipes ~ https://amzn.to/2UvPVk9First Aid Spray ~ https://amzn.to/3yVM5zXFirst Aid Gel ~ https://amzn.to/3yVtPH0Bandages ~ https://amzn.to/3AXPBLYTweezer ~ https://amzn.to/3kLiS6H Pain reliever medication ~ https://amzn.to/3uftZYq Antihistamine medication ~ https://amzn.to/3uizztl Portable Toilet ~ https://amzn.to/39cfSueCompostable Toilet Bags ~ https://amzn.to/3B39CknBamboo Toilet Paper ~ https://amzn.to/3kKtMJK Portable Hand Wash ~ Suds2GoBackpack ~ https://amzn.to/3CU5uD9 Packing Cubes For Extra Clothes ~ https://amzn.to/39HurW1Baby Carrier ~ https://amzn.to/2ITumECChild Backpack Carrier ~ https://amzn.to/2XV62K5 Umbrella ~ https://amzn.to/3B0yHwpCooler Bag ~ https://amzn.to/3uhKvr0 Ice Packs ~ https://amzn.to/3m1kFDX Water Bottle ~ https://amzn.to/2XPHORi Lunch Container ~ https://amzn.to/2XZ3ISK Snack container ~ https://amzn.to/3AM2rMJ Condiment container ~ PlanetBoxCamera ~ https://amzn.to/3meJCuALens ~ https://amzn.to/2J7uxg9We are a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for us to earn fees by linking to Amazon.com and affiliated sites.--Filmed with = DJI Mavic / Aerial viewsNikon 750 with Nikkor 24mm, 50mm, F/1.4-Music:Track: Kozah - Travel Again [NCS Release]Music provided by NoCopyrightSounds.Watch: https://youtu.be/TEAoPiZWnsQFree Download / Stream: http://ncs.io/TravelAgainYO
