A Look Back at 2017
Like many of you, I’m spending today reflecting back on 2017. At this time last year, our family was trying to balance a newborn and toddler while settling into our new home. We also were nervous for our first family trip. To say that it was a stressful time would be an understatement!
Barcelona, Spain is a vibrant city that is ideal for families. We traveled to Spain with some family friends who also have a 3-year-old. We found that the people of Barcelona are so friendly with children. Barcelona also offers many activities and attractions that are perfect for children of all ages. One of the most distinct attractions is Gaudi’s Park Guell.
This can be intimidating for families with small children. I’m here to assure you that Arc de Triomphe with kids is not only doable, but it can be a blast even with babies and toddlers. See our full Paris itinerary here.

Not only did he sleep a lot on the airplane, but he transitioned to the correct time zone almost seamlessly. We also brought our 3-year-old and traveled with another family. He did much better than the rest of us!
