I am sort of in love with the above photo. Isn’t it spectacular? K took it on a recent trip we took to La Push, Washington.
The coast at La Push was damp and wet, but welcoming and glorious all the the same. And, Maeve, a true sport during the long car ride, sparked our spirit of adventure and buoyed our courage to set out on more and more little journeys. We can’t wait to take her to the Tulip Festival in a couple of weeks time!
Traveling with a little one in tow wasn’t nearly as challenging as I expected. There are a couple of things, however, that might make it easier. Or, perhaps, these things might just make the experience that much cuter. They are, nonetheless, essential.
An adorable baby blanket to lay on the floor of the hotel or cabin. Who knows who’s been on those floors? Yikes.
A stuffed animal or pillow for tummy time.
A favorite toy.Maeve loves Sophie.
Bottles. When it was impossible to stop and breastfeed, I was thankful for these wonderful bottles.
A natural pacifier. Maeve doesn’t use them all the time, but, sometimes, I thank my lucky stars for the soothing quality of a pacifier.
And, perhaps, in those quiet moments when the sweet hum of the car puts your little one into a dreamy sleep, you just might have a chance to work on the baby journal or book. It is, after all, on your list of things to do.
Enjoy. Safe Travels.
