One Of The Funniest Experiences I've Had Traveling With Kids
We've traipsed all over with our little ones, but one of the funniest memories is of my son when we visited Walt Disney World. At only 20mos he was a big fan of Cinderella. In the Rose Garden he tried to plant one on her with his face covered in drool and his nose running. He screamed with delight when we had the Cinderella character meal at 1900 Park Fare. Who would have thought our Cars-crazed toddler would be more excited than his big sister to see a princess?! Other highlights include making friends with everyone wherever we go. And, dancing. There is always lots of dancing whenever we go away!

Where I'd Go If I Could Take My Kids Anywhere In The World
I can't wait until we can go to Costa Rica as a family. We're waiting until my son is old enough to zipline - probably in about 4 or 5 years.
