What's one of the funniest experiences (good or bad) you’ve had traveling with kids?

If you could share one piece of travel advice with other moms, what would it be?

Just do it. As moms we are so prone to analyze and over think every decision and every detail of our children's life. When it comes to traveling with kids, there are plenty of good excuses that we can rattle off to keep us at home. It's too hard. We're too busy. They're too young. And while those are all probably true, they are still just excuses that hold us back from something great. The best part of parenting is seizing the moment, and those moments happen every minute when you have the courage to pack your bags and your stroller and hit the road. Don't miss those moments waiting for 'someday.' Do it today.

If you could take your kids anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?

I suppose it would be cheating to say that I would like to take them everywhere, but it really is hard to choose just one place. If I had to choose right this minute, I would choose Legoland. I know it's not exotic or deeply meaningful, but they would love every minute of it. They are all at an age where they are so into Legos and would immerse themselves in every aspect of the park. Sometimes I feel sorry for them that they have parents who drag them to places like Greece and Amsterdam. It would be great for them to get to go on a vacation that was tailored around their interests.
