Twins First Trip

Twins First Trip

I had the opportunity to take my 2 month twins (and Husband) to Florida for my HSN appearance a few days ago. First plane ride and we get upgraded to first class! (don’t get used to this kids!)…

    I think it’s unusual for a youngster this small to really begin to resemble a parent, but in the pic of the of them in the greenroom chair, your daughter (I guess cuz she looks likes she’s wearing a dress) really favors you. One thing’s for sure, these two will be well traveled and well rounded!

    This makes it look pretty easy, due with twins in August. Hoping to take a trip with them soon after to Walt Disney world with the whole family.

    Kids are adorable…glad to see Dad is putting that 5D Mark III to use. My girls got upgraded to first class on their 1st trip to Disney World last year; it helps to know the gate agent at SWA.

    So adorable! I have ONE little guy, almost 6 mos. I give huge kudos to anyone with twins, no clue how you manage?! And traveling…wow. The little girl looks JUST LIKE YOU.

    Smantha and Kevin, your twins are beautiful. I love following you and your family on Facebook. My daughter is expecting twins in 3 weeks. I can hardly wait to be a Grandma.

    What a joy seeing you traveling with your twins already. They are adorable and look so well and happy; must have something to do with their mommy and daddy:-) Looking forward to your new blogs and travel shows, Samantha! The Travel Channel is not the same without you!

    Samatha, the twins are beautiful and adorable. So to get 1st class upgrade I need a couple of babies, at my age who would belive it (73) lol.

    My girlfriend asked me the other night. How do babies travel? So I showed her this link. :)

    OMG, they are so beautiful …..and cute as can be. I just love babies, the more the better. I am such a fan of yours and I’ve followed you for years. In fact, you are the reason I became such a World Traveler in the 90′s. I had to stop the last 11 yrs to care for my Mother. I’m planning to resume my love for the open seas & skies later this year….yeaaaaa lol. If you are ever need a babysitter and in the south, just call Auntie Retta.

    Congrats on the babies. How beautiful and so happy for you. Miss seeing you on travel channel. You were the reason I watched, on your trips I took the tripwith you. The guys on there now, not good traveling partners for my 30 minutes of mini vaca’s. Hope to see you back again. Enjoy your babies.

    I’m an ‘older’ mom too (42 with an 18 month old boy – first and only) and like you, having the time of my life! Haven’t stopped traveling either! Little man went on his first Alaskan cruise at 7 months! (Yes, we’re THOSE people) It can be done! Congratulations! Those babies are super precious!

    Samantha,
    Congrats on the babies. I am watching you right now on HSN! You look so amazing and the 2 piece tweed travel set you are presenting on HSN is just what I need. I absolutely, love your style and how you make traveling anywhere a imperfectly perfect experience.

    Congrats on the arrival of two gorgeous babies. They will turn your world upside down and inside out, but it is ALL worth it. And as you already know, there is no reason to stop traveling. If anything ours have just gotten bigger and better.

    I just read your interview over on Travel Mamas. Love what you are doing with Embassy Suites. This will give a whole group of family travels more tools in their belt to get out the door and really experience the world.

    I glad I stumbled across your web site. I have missed seeing you on the Travel Channel. I don’t like their new programs very much. Seeing people eat bugs is not my thing. Your twins are so adorable. Congratulation and best wishes on their birth.

    I am glad to stumble across your web site. Like many other comments here I do miss seeing you on travel channel. As I am leaving you this message, I am watching your trip to Jamaica.
    So glad to see you with your kids and yes motherhood suites you and your babies are so cute :) Wish you and your family a very healthy life and hope to see you on TV some time soon. :)

    Be careful what you wish for because you just might get it. I wished for twins. The three of us have traveled together since before they were two. We started practicing (as daddy duck) at the Super Mall on Sundays and they were rewarded with riding on the carousel. Changing diapers in the 737 restroom requires that you put on in the sink and hold her there with your hip while you change the other.
    We practiced hotel orienteering and the girl who first found the room got to use the door key. They believed that the EXIT sign on the floor by the stairs meant Crawl. So they did. The practice paid off; the fire department showed up at hotels, twice.

    Have been a fan for years, Samantha, and am so happy for you and your husband to have the twins. Glad to see you are still traveling and keeping the rest of us up to speed! Saw the website on AARP site, but miss seeing you on television…Thanks for posting your babies’ pics! They’re great!!

    We have boy and girl twins, now age 33, so you will survive! They are the best thing in our lives and now we have a grandson 4 months old. We love your shows and look forward to new ones. Your twins are adorable like you! Enjoy every precious moment-they will be driving before you know it!

    Oh my gosh, Sam, I’m behind! I didn’t know you’d had two beautiful little ones. I was cracking up though because I just watched your Great Weekends episode where you had your fortune read and she said you would have twins!

    Hi Sam! congrats on your two bundles of joy. Adorable. Hubby and I have watched Great Hotels for years & we miss seeing you. :( We had the opportunity to stay at The BroAdmoor Hotel in Colorado Springs a few years ago. When you turn on the TV in your room, guess what is playing? It’s you my dear!

    Take care & love,
    Barbi & John

    I have been an ardent fan since I first saw an early Hotel show. I look for you every now and then to see if you have something current on TV. To my joy and surprise you are now a mother. Your kids are beautiful and I couldn’t be happier for you and your family. Thanks so much for the updates. God bless.

    You’re a mommy?! How’d I miss that? (Oh, yeah… teaching part-time, taking classes, home renovations, trying not to go broke–I’ve missed a few things over the past year or so…) Congratulations, and they’re beautiful. I’m so happy for you!
