Pins in Our Map

My husband and I are both fortunate to have work situations that give us more vacation time than the average American. At times, we also have the flexibility to work from somewhere other than a traditional office. Those two factors, along with Jasper’s Dutchness, have given us the opportunity to take our work and our daughter on the road. As a result, our five year old has been living the life of Riley the past few years. This map shows where we’ve traveled for big and small adventures, and the places I’ll be writing about in this blog. Our travels amount to more than some, and far less than others. Here’s hoping we can drop many more pins in our map!

Paris With a Five Year Old

My husband is from The Netherlands, which means we have to budget in travel to Europe if we want to see his family. And because we do want to see his family, we have “vacationed” in Molenhoek, a small village just outside Nijmegen near the Dutch-German border, about once a year since Jasper moved to the U.S. back in the mid-90s. While it’s always fun to go to Holland, in many ways it’s not so different from visiting my own family in East Texas, so whenever possible we schedule side trips to bring an element of adventure to our family visit. This year, we were lucky enough to spend a week over Christmas with the Familie Smits then travel with our five-year-old daughter to Paris for New Year’s Eve. We had a blast and found Paris to be very family friendly. We just got back a week ago today, and it’s already hard to believe we actually had so many incredible experiences.

If you travel to Paris with a five year old…
