It’s that time of year again.
Travel planning season!
I’ve learned to take a #wycwyc approach to travel. If I don’t then nothing gets planned and travel never happens. So I ponder locations for a bit. Do a little research here and there. Look at flight options at lunch. Day dream of destinations while procrastinating work. And slowly book parts of trips as I can fund them.
Last week I asked the 9 Year-Old where he would like to go next year.
He said, “Mom, I liked our California trip but….”
I was like, “Uh oh, here it comes. Does he already not want to travel with his naggy mom?!?”
“I REALLY liked the Utah trip better. Can we do something like that again?”
I smile big and said, “Of course!”
If you haven’t seen our video, this will give you the Utah trip overview even more so than the pictures.
Just thinking about that trip makes me smile. Watching the video, I get a tear.
So we looked at the map on the wall (I keep a fun US map hung up in the kitchen so I can teach the kids the states — soon it will be a world map, I just have to find a good one) and he blurts out,
“Can we go to Wyoming?”
“Sounds good to me.” I said, and the researching began.
I’m seriously thinking of making this an adventure with both boys next August. My youngest will be 4 and a half. It sounds scary and exciting to travel with them alone but I think we can handle it. I love making this Mom-Son(s) travel tradition and I can’t wait for the three of us to share adventures together!
I can honestly say, besides Yellowstone, I know nothing of Wyoming. So if you have suggestions, advice, tips, or must-sees, please leave me a comment. I’d love incorporating your suggestions if I can!
