Several years ago I posted this idea for keeping track of the states that each of my adorables have visited.
In a nutshell, I have an atlas for each adorable…
In the front I have a sticky note of all the states, so they can be crossed off as we visit. Then on the individual state pages, I highlight the roads we’ve traveled for roadtrips, or circled the cities if we’ve flown there.
I also use additional sticky notes to mark the dates we’ve visited places like Disney World, Washington D.C., etc so they can look back later.
Then I hide the highlighter so my adorables can’t add their own “trips”. (I’m so mean!)
The Running Man has a good laugh at me when I make my case for my desired trip, knowing it’s as much about the “cross-off” as it is about actually visiting.
Oh man, I’m so transparent – he’s right.
But tomorrow, I get to make a new one:
We’re going to spend 4 days visiting San Antonio: The Alamo, the River Walk, Sea World.
I’ll let you know how it goes, but the anticipation of good Mexican food is killing me!
Have you been there? Any recommendations?? Please help!!
