Mardi Gras

but I thought we were going to rio for mardi gras


When BigB was just a few weeks old, we took our first trip with two kids, to Kauai. With a mid-summer baby, we had thought that any travel would be out of the question that year. And then there he was, healthy, full term and sleeping like a baby. For two travel-junkie parents, to stay at home would have just been shameful.

Babe in arms, waiting for take-off.

This was a trip which stands out for great photos:

X-Files influenced posing outside an internet cafe.

CAM, adorned but sleeping.

The caption for this photo in our family album is “When I wake up, I’m going to be so mad that we’re in Hawaii – I thought we were going to Rio for Mardi Gras”. That WanderDad, he’s so witty.

About wandermom

". . .life is short and the world is wide" - Simon Raven I'm not sure I've ever consciously planned a trip based on this sentiment, but it definitely influences my subconscious! I've been traveling as frequently and widely as possible since I finished school. And I love it. I love the research, the planning, the fervent packing and the curiosity of exploring somewhere I've never been before. My husband & I are both Irish - as in born-in-Ireland. But we live in Seattle. We have two boys: wild, boisterous, regular boys. So, since becoming a Mom, I've been a WanderMom. Given our slightly-unusual family situation, routine "visits-to-Grandma" are international trips requiring passports, 10hr-flights and (oh joy!) airport transfers. I have rants, raves and opinions about how, where & why to travel with kids (start them as young as you can, I say!). I hope to learn even more by researching topics which other wandermoms may be interested in reading about on this blog. Passports, pacifiers, diapers and gameboys at the ready - off we go!

    Great pictures! Thanks so much for sharing them… they brought back memories of the feeling of elation I had when we stepped off of our first flight with two kid… “we can still do it!” I thought.
