Do yourself a favor this morning: 

Do a Google search for "a long time ago in a galaxy far far away" without the quotation marks. Don't use autocomplete. 

Enjoy, Nerds! 

It's the most wonderful time of the year -- well, almost! The World of Coca-Cola attraction in ‪#‎Atlanta‬ is offering seasonal family-friendly entertainment to celebrate the holidays. 

This year, guests can enjoy these 10 holiday experiences at the World of Coca-Cola: 

1) Mail friends personalized letters from the desk of the Coca‑Cola Polar Bear inviting them to the attraction. 
2) Give a one-of-kind holiday gift that friends and family will always remember. 
3) Savor the season with signature beverages like Gingerbread Coke and Mistletoe Flow starting the Friday after Thanksgiving. 
4) Snap and share selfies with the Coca‑Cola Polar Bear and Santa Claus using ‪#‎WOCCHoliday‬. 
5) Get the star treatment with personalized VIP Guided Tours. 
6) Give back with a gift from the 5by20 artisan collection, which benefits women entrepreneurs around the world. 
7) Ooh and ahh over the thousands of holiday lights and larger-than-life ornaments in Pemberton Place. 
8) Learn the real story behind the Santa Claus image we know and love, originally commissioned by Coca-Cola in the 1930s. 
9) Share favorite holiday memories of Coca‑Cola with other fans from around the world. 
10) Give the gift of happiness all year long with a World of Coca-Cola Annual Pass.

Last year, volunteers donated 5,500 new book bags and school supplies that helped every school-aged child living in a shelter or group home in the metro #Atlanta area receive a brand new book bag filled with supplies. 

Visit one of these participating drop-off locations on Saturday, August 1 from noon-7 p.m. to lend your support to the Stuff The Bus initiative from WSB-TV and Children's Restoration Network:

'Hope for the best, but prepare for the worst' is a good life motto, and can apply to many things. As a parent, I've found this to be an especially important phrase. The same is true with family travel. No one wants to have a tire blowout or airport detention, so we take steps to ensure our safety and sanity as we step out to explore this great big world. My family is no stranger to the unexpected when it comes to our family travel adventures, so I thought it would be wise to share some of the ways that we prepare for these little set-backs. 

What are some ways that you prepare for the unexpected in family travel?

My family and I visited Myrtle Beach, SC for the first time last summer and quickly learned that we had been missing out! The beach is beautiful and very relaxing, and there are so many family-friendly attractions in the area. 

To celebrate Earth Day, April 22, the Vacation Myrtle Beach resorts are hosting fun activities to celebrate. 

At Sea Watch Resort, guests can watch "Captain Planet" in the resort's Palmetto Room at 1 p.m. while snacking on "dirt pudding." 

Crown Reef Beach Resort and Waterpark (where my family and I stayed last summer http://www.classicmommy.com/classicmommy/2014/9/10/the-crown-reef-beach-resort-for-myrtle-beach-familytravel) will be screening Dr. Seuss' The Lorax movie at the Palmetto Ballroom at 1 p.m., with Earth Day cupcakes and snacks, and even a Lorax-themed craft for children. The resort will also host a trash competition -- each participant will be challenged to collect 5 pieces of trash from the beach to deposit in a trash bin at the front desk in exchange for a prize. This very simple task is a good step toward taking care of the beach environment. 

The Vacation Myrtle Beach resorts are also extending the environmentally-friendly initiatives beyond Earth Day by implementing less-wasteful practices to reduce energy consumption and waste, and even promote recycling at each of the resorts. 

Have you visited Myrtle Beach? What is your favorite resort or attraction?
