I think you said it right – just find a way to travel — as did Corinne in comments above saying, "….. the whole point is to just do it!" My sister and I from very young ages always looked forward to going places and seeing new things and that's because our parents never presented travel to us as something difficult. The journey was in itself an adventure.

I was the same way in the begining of our first trip with the kids in regards to trying to be prepared . Keep it simple and it lends to less stress all around. That means learning how to not worry about being perfectly put together or fastidious. These things come with time and experience and not concerning your selves with what society says you need to look and act like.
Beautiful family. Love all the red heads !

Well written!!!  Have a super weekend!

I like the fact that you have pointed out what works for your family, and how you have travelled with what you needed for your family.

There is no two set rules and there is nothing that will work for everyone! The article really got my back up – as we are travelling with four of our five boys and we travel lightly.
We are also lucky as we have children who will try anything when we take them out for dinner! They also like to explore and create their own fun….we don't have that many toys with us as they make their own toys as we travel :)

We all have had to start somewhere…right?  By the way…I love the backpack with the sun/rain shade. What kind is it?!

I loathe the idea of articles like this putting new parents off…

No family travels exactly the same as another family, just like no two kids are alike. Every trip brings a new challenge, but also a new joy. What was challenging on your last flight might not be an issue anymore. We learn, we grow, we keep on moving. Cause no matter what, we are on the road exploring something new. And isn't the the best past of all for everyone?

Umbrella strollers are the best inventions for family with children who travels.
