Vacation time!

We are heading to a family vacation soon! By family I mean grandma and aunts and uncles and cousins too.  We are going for a wedding in Cuba!

 

It’ll be little K’s third plane trip in 3 years.


His first trip was to Mexico at 9 months!

 

Second trip to Jamaica at 18 months!

 



and now Cuba at 3 years old!

 

I have lots of organizing and packing to do! As I was making my list I realized how each trip was very different, based on his age.

 

Mostly good but with some challenges.

 

At 9 months he wasn’t walking yet so it was easier to plop him in one place to play or hold him or contain him in the stroller ha! Food wise was easy as well, he ate little bits from the restaurants and  he was still breastfeeding which helped a lot on the plane as well.  

 

At 18 months it wasn’t as easy as 9months but little K was soo good and loved the trip. He was walking uh hum running! so that was fun chasing him around most the time. Food wise he was great with the food at restaurants, so no issues. I just brought his usual snacks like goldfish and puffs to have when travelling.

 



Now at 3 years old. hmm. Big boy. Mind of his own! independent little boss of his world 3 year old. Packing for a 3 year old is pretty much the same as packing for myself, the only extras are his pull-ups and some snacks for the travelling.  I think little k will love it even more than the other times because he is older and understands the fun that comes with a vacation! We are all soo excited!



 I'll have tips for traveling with a 3 year old when we get back! 


Can’t wait to show you all the pics of our family vacation!
