NEW ORLEANS with your kids?! Oh even yesser.

See Coleen Kelly traveling happily with small people?
With no screaming and everyone smiling? Sigh...
Do you travel with your kids? When I say that I "travel with my kids", I'm actually talking about driving to NJ to go see my mom. I mean, we went to Disney World but that place is for kids. I'm talking about traveling to places that are not Disney or my mom's house. Places where kids can experience culture and actually become more aware of the world around them. 

I'm going to be honest - we don't do much of that. In part because it's hard. In part because it's expensive. Also? I have no idea what I'm doing and I usually get overwhelmed and act like a huge B. But there's a show on PBS called Family Travel with Colleen Kelly that helps clueless parents (like me) feel like traveling with kids might actually be fun instead of a giant cluster or a potentially international incident. 

The show is generously sponsoring this post, too! I'm going to use their money to pay off strangers' Christmas lay-aways while wearing an elf hat and acting stupid with Kate.   

BUT THERE'S MORE!! You can win a trip for your family to New Orleans that is so awesome that you will want to lick my face.

  1. I entered anyway, but I read the rules and it said the deadline is 11/17 and they would pick the winner 11/19. Hmmmm?

  2. We travel everywhere with our kids. This year's fun trip was Guatemala (with 8 and 4 year old boys).

    But white pants seriously?? She looks like she is on a fashion shoot. It is not exactly the type of trips I take with or without my kids.

  4. As someone who lives in New Orleans, I can also vouch for the fact that it's a great place to bring kids. Lots to see and do for everyone. Great food. Even Mardi Gras can be family friendly!

    Also, we undertook perhaps the nuttiest family adventure with our toddler even WE could imagine: the Camino de Santiago--walking 500 miles across northern Spain. www.elpequenoperegrino.blogspot.com
