Photo Friday: A Day in the Park

Antoni Gaudi's Park Güell in Barcelona
Antoni Gaudi's Park Güell in Barcelona

This is an image I sometimes use when I want a picture of me traveling with the kids, but I don't know that I have ever explained it. The picture was taken in October 2007. Darya was a day away from her first birthday, and we were traveling in Spain for three weeks. It was the first trip I wrote about for DeliciousBaby, and though we had traveled with the kids quite a bit, sharing our experiences was making me look at them in a new way.

Peyman snapped this shot of me in Antoni Gaudi's Park Guell (one of my favorite parks anywhere) and somehow the image stuck with me. It's easy to feel bogged down with all the kid gear and the worries about snacktime and naptime, but in this shot I just seem happy to be out enjoying what Barcelona has to offer. We spent the whole afternoon in the park, exploring, snacking, and possibly even napping - an afternoon I'm sure I'll always remember.

        I treasure photos where I'm holding/carrying my kids now that they're too old to do so anymore! Love your pic!

        What a perfect photo to show off the traveling mom & look how happy you are! I can't wait to visit Barcelona--it's way up there on my list.

        I love Parc Guell. Possibly one of my favourite places in the world. That's such a great travel mum photo too.
