"Travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer."
I am SO excited to be traveling to a city this week that I've never visited before, Washington D.C.! And the best thing is, my kids are going with us this trip! It was relaxing going to Costa Rica recently just as a couple, but Scott and I kept saying while we were there that we really wanted to take our kids on a fun trip once we got back! As exhausting as it is traveling with little ones, to see their excitement on a plane, bunking up in hotels (their absolutely fave thing), and the overall adventure of seeing a new city is a beautiful thing. Remember our trip to San Francisco and LA with our 3? The pictures remind me just how much fun our kids are to travel with!
We definitely will not look as chic as Joan Collins and her monogrammed Louis Vuitton luggage while in the airport however...actually very far from it! With my three in tow, they'll be backpacks, strollers, and snacks falling out of my carry on and my kids mouths! Probably a little whining about the long security lines or someone will have to go to the bathroom while there is turbulence in the air, but since I know what to expect, it shouldn't be that daunting. You have to learn to chuckle through those small inconveniences when traveling with children. And the fact Joan is wearing an all white outfit while flying is a definite no no for this mom - there is a 99% chance of staining whatever I wear because someone will spill something on me!! Guaranteed. Dark printed clothing is the way to go!
Of course I've been scouring the Internet, Pinterest, and Washington based blogs to see what we should do in our short amount of time there. Luckily it sounds like there is no shortage of things to do and see! What better way to learn about the world than to travel it right?!
Have you been to Washington D.C.?
