#Evenflo Platinum Car Seat Takes us to #Woodloch Pines Family Resort

Thank you to #Evenflo and @theMoms for Sponsoring our wonderful family getaway to the beautiful #Woodloch Pines Resort.

Our life has been quite a whirlwind for the last few months. Our oldest started Kindergarten, our middle went off to preschool full time and our baby girl made her appearance nearly a month early. Add in sickness, bad weather and house renovations, and you have one crazed mama. Thanks to @themoms, and Evenflo, off we went to Woodloch Pines Resort where we were able to reconnect and spend three glorious days together.  No cooking, cleaning, chores, homework, or schedules and it was JUST what this family of 5 needed.

Woodloch Pines Resort  is a family centered, all inclusive resort located in the beautiful Poconos (PA). Even the car ride through the beautiful scenery rejuvenated us. Woodloch has so much to offer, from planned activities for all ages, to an indoor swimming pool and splash park to bumper cars, and an indoor playground, there was always something to do. We found the room to be clean, neat and the rooms were modest in size but easily fit a pack n play while easily accommodating the rest of us (and all of our things!). We thought the layout of the space was just right ~ offering both a living room as well as a nice sized bedroom. This was perfect for our family as we were able to tuck all the children in the bedroom and the hubs and I were able to cozy up and watch movies together in the living room.  Our room had two bathrooms, a well-appreciated fridge, as well as plenty of closet and drawer space. We thoroughly enjoyed waking up to the beautiful view, and especially loved our little balcony where we took in the fresh mountain air.  Each meal offered a variety of food choices and if nothing was to your liking, the staff was more than willing to find something that suited your needs be it preference or dietary restriction. But being at Woodloch Pines Resort was not about the room, or the pool or the dining hall, it was all about family togetherness. I loved that we sat down for each and every meal, three times a day, with zero distraction and lots of time to chat, laugh and just be together and enjoy the stunning view of Lake Teddyuskung. The staff was friendly, willing to go the extra mile to make sure we were having a good time and met our every need and request with patience, kindness and efficiency. Woodloch is just a happy place to be.

To make our three hour drive to Woodloch Pines Resort comfy, cozy and safe, Lil Bee, 4, had a chance to put the Evenflo Platinum Symphony™ DLX All-In-One Car Seat to the ultimate test. The first thing you notice about this car seat is how it envelops your child. I tried it my nearly 6 year old as well as my 4 year old and it fit them both extremely well and they both noted how comfortable they were in it and how easy it was for them to get in and out. I have already had two moms stop me and inquire about this awesome car seat. I loved sharing with them all that I love about it, but my daughter chimed and said, “It is comfy and I have two cup holders!”
The top 6 things I LOVE about the Evenflo Platinum Symphony™ DLX All-In-One Car Seat:
*it offers amazing technology to keep my child safe, protected, cool and comfortable with the OUTLAST® Performance Fabric
* it was SUPER easy to install CORRECTLY
* it adjusts to accommodate different height children in seconds WITHOUT having to remove and rethread the harness (YIPPEEE)
* *** FAVORITE! The unique and one of a kind Buckle pockets to prevent the buckles from getting too hot and potentially burning your child (didn’t get to try these yet as it is still frigid here, BUT I always have to cover the kids’ belts with a cloth to avoid burning them when they return to their seats, I am SO glad I don’t have to remember this step anymore-GENIUS!!)
*the expandable cup holders that fit any size bottle or cup (such a simple thing, but so convenient and appreciated!)
*it fits a child from 5-110 lbs, can be used rear and forward facing and as a booster

I was not compensated for this post. Thank you to the moms and Evenflo for a complimentary night stay at Woodloch Pines Resort. We chose to extend our weekend on our own dime and it was the best decision we could have made.
