5 apps for a more successful family vacation

ADVERTISEMENT


When we say a ‘more successful’ family vacation we basically mean that anything could happen, especially on a family trip. Things can either go really well or terribly wrong. There was a time when things were simpler and life was, well, much easier. However, everything started changing once kids got in the picture. As much as we adore them, when parents take their kids away from their normal day-to-day routine (which can be unbearable sometimes on its own), let’s just say that they feel more free than ever, and that’s not always such a good thing. Free to scream more, to get lost more and to have horrible meltdowns in the most picturesque places. Don’t get us wrong, a family vacation can also be amazing because it’s a time for pure bonding, a precious time that you don’t always get in your everyday life.

Thankfully, in this day and age, parents have apps to pretty much save them from anything that could go wrong. Ok, maybe not anything but if they want to ‘survive’ a family vacation with their kids, there are a few apps that will come very handy. Some are more useful than others and some are just about pure fun, isn’t that what a vacation is all about? Who knows, maybe some parents will even consider going on another family vacation very soon. Everyone needs some technical help from time to time, and that’s where these 5 apps come in.

GateGuru:

GateGuru is the one app you absolutely need when traveling with kids. It will be a real lifesaver in case your flight gets delayed, or god forbid, cancelled. Based on your flight schedule and details, this app will give you real-time updates so you won’t need to waste any of your precious time. You will also get ,major discounts on travel-related features such as car rental and list of shops and restaurants you can find at the airport.

Yuggler:

Yey, you arrived at your destination, congratulations! Now, if you haven’t planned ahead of time (which is probably not the best idea) then you’ll be very thankful for Yuggler. This app is all about fun and keeping your kids busy. Depending on your area, it will offer you suggestions and opinions of things you can do based on other parents’ recommendations and photos. There’s an option to filter according to your kids’ age, the season you’re traveling in and more.

USA Rest Stops:

In the case of a family road trip or just in case you have long drives as part of your trip itinerary, you will com to realize that your kids need to go, A LOT! The number of breaks just go up as they get older. With USA Rest Stop, you will get to find different rest stops across the country so you will always know when the next stop will be. ‘Are we there yet?’ will become a whole lot endurable.

Postagram:

Postagram will let you send your relatives back home an interactive postcard that will get to their phone way faster than a normal postcard would, obviously. Your Instagram snaps will turn into postcards in just one click.

Plates Free Family Travel Game:

Remember that license plate game you used to play with your siblings and parents when driving around the country? Well, it just went from traditional to digital. Have your children search for different license plates in different states, that way you’ll burn another hour or two.

Untangling the Lestrange Family Tree

Following the meteoric success of Harry Potter, the Fantastic Beasts film franchise is forging its own path by uncovering completely hidden depths of Wizarding World lore. While the first movie introduced us to a fresh set of magical characters with Newt Scamander, Tina and Queenie Goldstein, and Credence Barebone, The Crimes of Grindelwald is bringing us firmly back into familiar Potter territory.

The trailers have already promised us a return to Hogwarts, an unsettlingly handsome young Dumbledore, and a human origin story for Voldemort’s favorite Horcrux, Nagini. But one character’s name stands out for potentially giving fans the juiciest insight into the known Potter universe: Leta Lestrange. In the first movie, Leta was seen only in a photo inside Newt’s infamous trunk. But with The Crimes of Grindelwald, Leta Lestrange is poised to become an integral character. But how does she tie into this story and just how is she related to Voldemort’s favourite Death Eater, Bellatrix?

What Do We Know About Leta Lestrange?



In the first Fantastic Beasts film, New York witch Queenie used her Legilimency on Newt to deduce that Leta is a “taker” in their relationship — which doesn’t bode well for her character. However, Newt’s obvious fondness for her could indicate that she’s tragically misunderstood, like the animals he loves so much. Perhaps she’s a victim of her already dark bloodline and signature family values. In The Crimes of Grindelwald, we know she’s engaged to Theseus Scamander (Newt’s brother), but Newt obviously still holds a flame for her. Newt and Leta went to Hogwarts together, and evidently shared a close friendship during their time there.

We know he protected her from getting expelled after she experimented on a student with a Jarvey, taking the blame — and punishment — himself. Given Newt’s tendency to do what’s right, we can presume that she has some redeeming qualities in his eyes. In a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it moment from The Crimes of Grindelwald trailer, the Corvus family tree also seems to reveal that Leta is Credence’s half-sister, after her father, Corvus Lestrange, adopted him. With a connection to Newt, Theseus, and Credence, we can already see the Lestrange family tree sinisterly winding its way around the Fantastic Beasts series. However, the big question remains: Does Leta share the same blood as Bellatrix?

Tracing the Lestrange Family Tree to Its Roots



Let’s take this back to the very beginning. The name “Lestrange” echoes the French phrase “l’étrange,” which literally translates to “the strange one” — which gives you some idea of the unconventional ancestry we’re dealing with here — yet the Lestrange family is British. The Lestranges are one of the oldest pure-blood families in the Wizarding World, known for interbreeding with other pure-blood families just to keep their blood pure — a practice that makes it extremely difficult to trace their roots. In the trailer for The Crimes of Grindelwald, we do get a glimpse of the oldest Corvus bloodline, which leads directly to Leta Lestrange. Per this quick glimpse, the line seemingly dates further back than when records began.



We have no dates of birth for this branch of the family at all until Leta is born sometime between 1 September 1896 and 31 August 1897 (which fans have deduced based on what years she was at Hogwarts). However, one significant detail in the Corvus bloodline, which may lead us back to Bellatrix, is the pure-blood Rosier family. The Rosiers married into the Lestrange bloodline three generations before Leta was born, giving her Rosier blood. Another member of that same Rosier family, Druella Rosier, also married into a separate branch of the Lestrange family much later.

Druella became the mother of Narcissa Malfoy, Andromeda Tonks, and, that’s right, Bellatrix Black (who later, of course, became the Lestrange we all know and loathe). Incidentally, another member of the Rosier family, Vinda Rosier, will appear in the upcoming Fantastic Beasts sequel as one of Grindelwald’s followers. Yet, mysteriously, she doesn’t appear in the branch of the family connected to the Lestranges. Keeping up? If you are, then you must be a wizard.

Turning the Lestrange Blood Black



The second and possibly more familiar branch of the Lestrange family tree is the Radolphus bloodline, which we know begins around the turn of the 19th century. Radolphus Lestrange was a wizard who, from 1835 to 1841, served as Minister for Magic of Britain and Ireland. It’s not until three generations later that Bellatrix finally enters the Lestrange picture by marriage. Bellatrix Black married Radolphus’ great-great-grandson, Death Eater Rodolphus Lestrange, by 1971, bringing together the houses of Lestrange, Black, and Rosier (remember them?). So, in short, Bellatrix doesn’t technically have true Lestrange blood — though she certainly lives up to the ‘l’étrange’ description.

Connecting the Branches



With two disparate family trees, do we have any hope at all of connecting the branches? Well, Zoe Kravitz, the actress playing Leta Lestrange in The Crimes of Grindelwald, may have the answer. In an interview with The Independent, she claimed: “I play Helena Bonham Carter’s great-great aunt.” This gives us some clues: Leta is three generations away from Bellatrix, which should place her in the same generation as Radolphus Lestrange, and could leave room for their meeting at some point in the Fantastic Beasts series.

This, in turn, could provide the crucial overlap we need to connect the two Lestrange family branches. However, if you refer back to the dates in the family trees, Leta was born over 50 years after Radolphus served as Minister for Magic, which throws a Niffler in the works. On a hopeful note, we do have to remember that wizards have much longer life expectancies than Muggles, so generations could overlap in magical ways that would be impossible in our world.

Leta Might Be the Most Important Lestrange Yet



It seems the Lestrange family tree is just as dark and mysterious as the characters within it. However, for Kravitz to confidently say she’s Bellatrix’s great-great aunt, the branches must reconnect somewhere along the line in a way we don’t know yet — and we might find out how in The Crimes of Grindelwald.

We suspect either Leta or a sibling is likely to have married back into the Rosier family during the time when Radolphus Lestrange was alive, forging the family connection long before Bellatrix ever came along, and making her more of a Lestrange than we previously knew. Or perhaps the mysterious Vinda Rosier will hold the key. If this plays out during any of the next four Fantastic Beasts movies, our Muggle hearts will be satisfied. In the meantime, only one thing’s for sure: Pure-blood wizarding families are complicated.

Family of Baby Girl, Who Was Stabbed and Put in Heated Oven, Hold Funeral for the 20-Month-Old

Royalty Floyd, the 20-month-old Mississippi toddler who was allegedly stabbed and then placed in a heated oven by her own grandmother, was laid to rest on Saturday in Clarksdale.

The family of the slain baby girl came together to say their final goodbyes dressed in pink, per request of Royalty’s mother Veronica Jones, who said it was her daughter’s “favorite color” on Facebook.

“You are gone from this earth but you will forever be here in my heart. You were really truly one of the most beautiful creations that God had ever made and I would like to thank God for bringing you into my life,” Veronica wrote ahead of Royalty’s service.

At the funeral, Royalty’s grandfather delivered a tearful eulogy about his late granddaughter.

“She was ‘Big Girl.’ But from the day she was born, she was granddaddy’s baby girl. And she knew it,” Royalty’s grandfather James Harris said, WREG-TV reported.

“I miss her,” Harris continued. “But she’ll always be with me. Always.”

Royalty’s father John Floyd, who is still in shock over his daughter’s gruesome death, also managed to say a few words at the funeral.

“I still find it unbelievable to tell you the truth,” John said, WREG-TV reported.

“And to try and make heads or tails of what happened, it’s still something I can’t comprehend right now. It ain’t soaking in for some reason. I’m thinking one day this is all something that isn’t real,” John added.

On Oct. 15, authorities were called to a residence in the small city of Shaw after a family member discovered Royalty’s lifeless body burnt and stabbed inside a heated oven.

Royalty was alive when her grandmother, 48-year-old Carolyn Jones allegedly placed her inside the oven.

A deputy coroner at the Bolivar County Coroner’s office in Mississippi told The Bolivar Commercial that the young child died “from sharp stab wounds and inhaling the heated air in the oven.”

On the night of the little girl’s death, Carolyn was immediately taken into custody and has been charged with first-degree murder, the Bolivar County Sheriff’s Department confirmed to PEOPLE.

Carolyn is currently being represented by a public defender.  PEOPLE could not immediately reach the public defender.

When contacted by the Associated Press, a public defender declined to comment, saying he’s still learning about the case.

The Bolivar County Sheriff’s Department also told PEOPLE, the child “was living at the residence with Jones at the time of the murder.”

“I’ve been in law enforcement a long time, 26 years almost. Some of the most horrific scenes I’ve seen in law enforcement involve children. Those are some of the— they have an effect on us. We don’t want it to happen, but unfortunately, things like this happen,” Bolivar County Sheriff Kevin Williams said in a press conference on Oct. 16, WREG reported.

When asked for a motive, Williams said, “We are trying to figure that out ourselves. We have no idea at this point.”

Royalty’s mother also created a GoFundMe and raised over $ 6,000 to cover Royalty’s funeral costs.

Tennessee family finds incredibly rare albino raccoon

A potential pest problem resulted in one of the most unlikely discoveries imaginable, and it all started when a Tennessee family called a wildlife management company because something had been breaking into their bird feeders. Members of Alpha Wildlife set up traps after spotting raccoon footprints and asked the homeowner to contact them later.

The next morning the homeowners got an incredible surprise. There, in one of the traps, was an albino raccoon, an animal so rare that you’re more likely to get struck by lightning than to casually stumble upon across one.

Greece with kids: top family friendly islands you should visit

ADVERTISEMENT

When it comes to booking your next family holiday, there is so much to think about – where it is, how long it will take to get there, what there is to do for the kids, what there is to do for the adults (when you need a stiff drink after looking after the kids for the whole day), how much it will cost, and what the place can offer you. It’s not easy. But luckily, Greece is made up of over 200 inhabited islands that make the perfect family destinations. Here are the five best Greek islands to visit if you have a family.

Rhodes

Rhodes is one of the most beautiful islands in Greece, and well away from the bright lights, bars, and clubs of many of the ‘party islands.’ This island offers 30-miles worth of white sandy beaches which are perfect for building sandcastles, glorious water which is perfect for splashing and learning how to swim, and some of the best all inclusive hotels in Greece. There are kids’ clubs, cafes, water sports and more to keep the kids entertained. And if you fancy taking in a few of the sights, Rhodes’ Old Town is full of cobbled streets, trinket shops, medieval architecture, and relics.

Naxos

The island of Naxos is the largest of the Cyclades Islands and an incredibly popular vacation destination for families with children. With some of the best and longest beaches in Greece, you could spend hours playing and relaxing on the white sand and swimming in the ocean. Because the beaches are the island’s main attraction, there are so many activities – from horseback riding along the beach to water sports, and pedalo boats, you won’t get bored. If you want to tire the kids out, take them for a hike through the beautiful farms and villages throughout Naxos.

Alonissos

The island of Alonissos is located in a remote area of the Sporades and well away from the tourist traps of Greece. Alonissos is perfect for families with slightly older kids who don’t mind spending most of their day checking out what the island has to offer – but don’t worry, the beaches are still incredible. With the huge Alonissos National Marine Park to explore, you can take the kids out for a boat trip or Kayak to catch a glimpse of the rare seabirds and the Mediterranean Monk Seal, as well as dolphins.

Corfu

If you want a mix of fun and the sun – then Corfu is the perfect option. Located in the Ionian Islands, Corfu is an eclectic mix of pebbled coves, luscious sandy beaches, UNESCO-listed Old Town, incredible rock formations and luscious green inland. As well as checking out all of the sights the island has to offer, you can also take the kids to the famous Aqualand Water Park, or take a trip to the open-air cinema.

Milos

Milos is one of the most unusual Greek Islands. Created by underwater volcanic rock formations, the coast of Milos is rife with smooth cliff edges, sea caves and little coves that are perfect for snorkeling and exploring. The longest beach in Milos consists of three different beaches merging together and merges yellow, pink and red pebbles. With warm underwater springs, the sea will always be the perfect temperature for your family holiday.

‘The Haunting Of Hill House’ Helped Me Finally Understand My Own Family

Television in 2018 has frequently seen a different kind of family drama than what’s so often appeared prior; something darker, something more dysfunctional. Dare I say it, something more realistic, in tone, if not in content.

There’s been HBO’s Sharp Objects, a six-part adaptation of the Gillian Flynn novel of the same name, which, despite being a Southern Gothic murder mystery, one with a side of Munchausen by proxy no less, was frequently tender and frequently the-radiator-is-broken warm. More recently there’s been Netflix’s The Haunting Of Hill House, in which director Mike Flanagan, whose CV is predominantly filled with modern horror films, took the much-adapted Shirley Jackson-penned source material, and used the supernatural as allegory for how trauma can be passed from one generation to the next. And, from the year prior, and again from HBO, Big Little Lies took Liane Moriarty’s brutally frank novel and carved it up into a powerful familial drama that pulled no punches, literally.

It’s kind of fitting that, within an era where the most wholesome family drama, ever, The Cosby Show, really doesn’t feel so wholesome anymore, and wherein your favourite TV mum, Rosanne, has been asked to leave the family home until further notice, the family TV drama has reinvented itself. Even NBC’s smash hit This Is Us, weaves themes like grief, anxiety, miscarriage and rehab throughout the nice bits.

Came For the Scares, Stayed For the Horror

Of them all, The Haunting Of Hill House has resonated with me most. I came for the scares. What kept me enthralled was the horror. The horror of family. The horror of family falling apart, the glue between the joints that keeps units bound, like a piece of furniture you never get around to replacing so instead you just patch it up, stretching, fraying, falling apart the more strained relationships become. It helped me look at my own family in a way that’s proved helpful.

Here’s something I’ve never talked about outside of the therapy session. When I was younger, I spent thousands of hours lying on my bed wondering if my family was normal. In many ways, it seemed like it. We ate dinner on Sundays together. There’s photos of us all on holiday. We’re smiling. I remember lots of laughs. I never didn’t feel like my existence wasn’t not a thing of wonder to them. But there were also the secrets. The things we weren’t supposed to talk about. Snatches of conversation I could never quite understand. People crying in parts of the house I knew I couldn’t enter. And, thick in the air, like smoke-filled carriages in the days you could smoke on trains, the dense, stifling, overwhelming feeling that something wasn’t right. I spent a lot of my time growing up trying to solve a puzzle, a sprawling multi-generational mystery, which ultimately led only to more pieces I couldn’t find.

Fear and Family


The bent-neck lady ghost in The Haunting of Hill House.

I’ve never seen a ghost. I was at a friend’s house once that was supposed to be haunted. For years they’d told me of the things they’d seen there. I never saw anything, but something grabbed me there once. Grabbed me in a way that felt physical. Squeezed my shoulder. It could have been a muscle spasm. It could have been my brain, filled with stories of apparitions and orbs, wanting to believe, playing tricks on me. I’m no neurologist, and I can’t understand a lot of how my brain works, even when I’m not sat supping tea in supposedly haunted houses. But within a few episodes of watching The Haunting Of Hill House, I’d unquestionably seen a ghost, if a ghost is an echo of the past, which I think is what they most likely are.

I spent so much of my childhood scared. Nobody is to blame for that. Nobody wanted that for me. The road to hell is paved with good intentions as they say. But I’d certainly never seen that sort of fear featured within TV drama before. HBO’s Six Feet Under came along in my teens and not so much scratched — not so much an itch, even — but levelled out a twinge of an idea that maybe I wasn’t completely alone. But it didn’t knead the tissue deep enough. What it did do was ignite a spark inside me that made me wonder whether it wasn’t my family that made me think we weren’t normal, but the families I saw on TV. Sometimes on a Sunday, when Channel 4 showed repeats of The Waltons, I hoped their stupid house would collapse upon them and kill them all. Years later, when I learned the child actors in the show weren’t paid with money, rather with baskets of muffins, I felt quite bad about that.

As Long As There Is Love


Crains-Haunting-of-Hill-House
The Crain family in The Haunting of Hill House.

I saw it in the faces of The Haunting of Hill House’s Crain family though. The bewilderment in the children’s faces, their underdeveloped brains not being entrusted with the truth, or at least not all of it, them all striving to plug the gaps, failing pathetically. I saw it in the father, him desperately pleading to ‘fix’ problems in the present that had begun decades before. I saw it in the mother, the downturned facial muscles that accompanied the revelation that, despite having done everything she could to protect her brood, it still hadn’t been enough. Because if we’ve learned anything about the chaos of human existence, it’s that we can’t protect ourselves from life.

This isn’t a sad story. This is a story about how The Haunting Of Hill House confirmed the growing belief in me that my family was normal, at least in the sense that ‘normal’ has little business being used in the same sentence as the word family. Because as well as fear in those faces, I saw love. And in turn, it reminded me of the love I have for these people I’ve been thrust into a relationship with; no agreement, no escape. Not only that, but as much as this sounds like the opening line in the worst power ballad ever conceived, if you’ve got love, at least you’ve got something to embolden you in your fight against the demons.

Trends 2 Watch: Family Room Design Ideas

Home Trends’ Style Editor Jo Alcorn shares some family room design ideas.

SEATING Family rooms need adequate seating for reading, relaxing and hosting movie nights. In this space, I chose an oversized sectional and complemented it with a side chair and a modern rocker. When arranging your seating, be sure to also add hard surfaces such as a large coffee table and side tables to hold snacks and drinks.

PERSONAL TOUCHES Large scale frames featuring artistically taken family photos make a great statement over a sofa and are a great alternative to a gallery wall.

ACCESSORIZE ME Don’t shy away from accessories in a family room. Find a way to incorporate family treasures, bowls and lush throw cushions to give the space an elevated look.

TO SERVE AND PROTECT A high quality area rug goes a long way by protecting your valuable hardwood floors. Choose a subtle color in an interesting pattern (to hide possible stains) for a beautiful, timeless look. – Text by Jo Alcorn
