To say we’re an adventurous family is a bit of an understatement.

We pretty much breathe adventure and experience. I remember four years ago – when Des was two and Scarlet was five – that I took them to the wilderness of Maine to stay at a B&B and look for moose. Moose, we did find, as well as stunning foliage, a little gingerbread house/cafe, bridges, windmills, fresh air, sunrises, and sunsets to stun us all. It was an awesome trip and although we have traveled to far away places since then, and have seen amazing things, there was something about that FIRST moose adventure as a family. Des doesn’t even remember it, which means we’ll have to go again really soon.

He does remember some amazing things we’ve seen, though – up close and in the distance.

The thing is, they grow up and so does their love for adventure. You have to be prepared. When they were babies and toddlers, everything was car seat this and car seat that. I thought it would eventually fade away, but it never will. My kids will be in car seats for many years to come, so it’s important that they are using the best ones for our adventure-loving family. That’s why we LOVE the Maxi-Cosi Magellan™ Max 5-in-1 Convertible Car Seat. It helps with everyday adventures.

5 Things to Bring For Everyday Adventures (And Beyond):

1 – Smart techy things.

That’s right. We all know we need a smartphone and charger for maps and calling for help and information, but you may also consider a tablet or DVD player for your kids. Mine are either a bit young or a bit too motion sick for screens, but an MP3 player goes far for keeping them entertained with awesome music! Plus, don’t forget chargers.

2 – First Aid things, of course.

We keep a first aid kit for all trips, as well as a disinfectant, pain medications, bug spray, and sunscreen.

3 – Eating and drinking things.

Keep a cooler if you have space in your car. We also keep reusable water bottles and non-perishable snacks.

4 – Things to entertain the whole family.

This has a range, but among them – binoculars, cameras, maps, games, e-books, activity and coloring books, balls, frisbees, crayons, pencils, paper, and a car seat organizer to place in front of the kids’ seats so they can access it.

5 – A comfy and safe car seat for each kid – adapted to their age.

The Maxi-Cosi Magellan™ Max 5-in-1 Convertible Car Seat is an innovative and new 5-in-1 convertible car seat that accommodates children from birth to age 10! And that’s a weight range of 5 – 120 pounds. It transitions between five modes of use: Baby Rear-Facing, Toddler Rear-Facing, Toddler Forward-Facing, Child Forward-Facing, and Belt Positioning Booster. Also, it’s the only convertible car seat equipped with Maxi-Cosi’s patented Adjustable Side Impact Protection, which creates a customized fit for all growth stages and ensures maximum protection in the proper position. There’s a lot more to love:

1 – Did you know that Maxi-Cosi is the top-selling baby car seat brand worldwide? For over 30 years, their car seats have carried over 50 million babies home from the hospital. 50 MILLION! Just think about that!

2 – The Magellan™ Max has been designed with comfort and style in mind, incorporating premium fabrics that are machine washable, while providing a contemporary, yet timeless look. I definitely can’t argue with that! It looks great.

3 – It’s available in Maxi-Cosi’s popular Nomad fashion: Nomad Blue, Nomad Sand, Nomad Purple, Nomad Black, Nomad Grey.

4 – It’s available at the following retailers: Albee Baby, Nordstrom and Buy Buy Baby and other specialty retailers
