Traveling out of country

Well it’s been awhile since I’ve posted anything on this blog.

In truth, part is because I’m not sure how much of a difference it was making & the last 2 weeks I have been getting ready to take a trip out of country to visit my dad & his family.

Now remember, this is a personal post so be ready to read just one persons thoughts ; )

Now I don’t know how many people have traveled to see family out of country but it is a pretty involved task.  My dad is from the states but chose to move to Mexico (IKR, who chooses to go to Mexico, but I digress..) so before going I ask what would everybody like from he


From then on it’s this mad hunt for all this stuff, different stores to find the right/certain things & correct sizes. It  almost like a scavenger hunt for vacation trips. And this of course is never-minding the paperwork involved-passports for each member & plane tickets.

But when you first see your family which you haven’t seen in years, the moment makes it seem TOTALLY worth it!

I had my moments. There were times where I felt bad as a mom for taking my son but other times where I felt glad that he could get some quality time with his Abuelo. The pictures make it worth it to me. Those pictures I couldn’t get any other way & my son (Lord willing nothing happens to them) will have some memories of his abuelo, even if he can’t remember them.

So I guess my hope for all of you who travel with kids, is that you get the BEST memories you can! That even in those uncomfortable & MAJORLY inconvenient times you don’t get too discouraged & that those once in a lifetime memories outweigh the inconvenient ones 🙂

…oh yeah & some AWESOME pics! ; )
