Where in the world... talking travel with my kids

Last night our dinner time conversation turned to travel. Friends of ours are going on a Disney cruise, and my kids thought it would be wonderful for us to do the same some time. I said that sounded great, but there are just so many places I would love to visit. And that's when the fun began.

Traveling to new places with kids is an amazing adventure. It shakes you out of your comfort zone, stretches you in new ways, and shows you what you're made of. It is a great learning experience for the whole family. I highly recommend it.

Summer vacation... that fabulous time to travel away from home to see some new sights, perhaps visit people, or simply kick back and relax. When traveling with kids, it surely helps to plan some ways to maintain everyone's sanity. Here are a few tips I like to use when we head off on an adventure.

Our family took a vacation to visit family in Chicago this year. We saw the sights, ate the food, hit the highlights. It was great fun.

PARIS - The first time that I tore open a package of Prince chocolate cookies and started eating them in the car, my boyfriend, Xavier, just about came unglued.

"Um, eating a cookie," I replied. "Car snacks," I added, "you know."

The weddings in our family are coming back-to-back this season. On Saturday my husband's cousin Elizabeth got married in Bryson City, North Carolina.

With a surprise package of two Playmobile pirate figurines, three DVDs from the Bull St. Library, chicken salad sandwiches and some cheesy crackers, the seven hour drive was pleasant with the four-year-old.
