Track Your Tyke’s Travels: The 7 Year Update

Track Your Tykes Travels - Child in AirportHard to believe it but this blog is nearing its 4 year anniversary. Every year since the very beginning, I take stock of the travels I’ve done with my kids and write down where we’ve been so that I have a record for them when they are older. My daughter just turned 7 a few weeks ago, so it is time for an annual update.

A major reason we travel – to have moments like this with grandparents!

This past year of travels has been fairly routine with trips to see family dominating our schedule. We’ve also begun doing more road trips now that we are facing the reality of buying 4 plane tickets (the era of the lap toddler is official over!).

But not to worry – I’m not giving up my frequent flyer card and not by a long shot. We did take one pretty big exotic international adventure — visiting Panama City, Panama and Cancun, Mexico over the Thanksgiving break. We had a chance to cruise the Panama Canal with our kids and spend the day at Chichen Itza as well as fly a new airline for both kids (Copa Air), so that trip was definitely a highlight.
