My husband and I like to travel with our kids. A lot.
This week my to-do list is telling me to get a new passport for our six-year old. His first one has expired. And before we use that passport for an end-of-the-summer trip, I’ll be packing suitcases and backpacks for another week-long excursion to visit family and friends. (My husband will accompany us for only part of that trip. I’ll drive with the kiddos to our second destination and then fly home with the three of them solo.)
Six years of flying, driving, and traveling with kids in general has yielded a lot of lessons and a lot of great memories. And now that I’m blogging, I thought this would be the perfect spot to share some of the things I’ve learned through those experiences. Hope my tips help your trip to be even better… or inspire you to pack that suitcase and just go for it for the first or second time. By the third you’re sure to be hooked, too.
So get ready to pack those bags. And, to prepare to for take-off, check out Mom’s Toolbox tomorrow to see what I pack to carry on for a plane trip. Then, on Friday, I’ll share my tips on what you can do to make your airport experience even better. Monday I’ll share ideas for what else to bring (or leave at home) and suggestions on how you can make your vacation a vacation for everyone.
Fasten your seatbelts, check back tomorrow, and prepare for some more summer fun! It’s not ever yet… even if you are getting back-to-school ads in your mailbox!
