Favorite Posts of the Week

Three posts really spoke to me this week about the beauty and practicality of traveling with kids. Enjoy!

Ardnamurchan Timelapse from Love Baby Love Travel: You must watch this amazing time lapse video of Anna, her son and husband from a recent trip they took. I adore Anna's blog (I think we're kindred spirits from across the Atlantic!), and this video reminds me of many evenings spent with the two men in my life. If you're a mom, you'll probably get teary-eyed watching this. (You'll also chuckle at their efforts to keep the laptop and wine glasses away from wandering little Euan!)

A History Lesson in Santiago from WanderMom: This family is on a trip around the world, and their latest stop in Santiago allowed them to witness living history, as they viewed the capsule that was used to rescue the Chilean miners. While in Chile. How cool. I love how she wants her kids to "learn about the world from being in the world." I'm absolutely borrowing that phrase!

Visiting The Prado with Kids from Dim Sum, Bagels, and Crawfish: A visit to The Prado was a real highlight of the three weeks I spent in Spain a few years ago. I'd love to take the arrow there some day, and this post is full of fantastic suggestions for having fun at a museum with kids (some ideas are specific to The Prado, but many are practical for any museum!)
