Photo Friday: Guidebook

Everest and I in Paris
Everest and I in Paris

This is a favorite photo of mine. It was taken when Everest was just 6 months old, and just getting out of the house with one kid was a daunting task. We had decided to spend my husband's Paternity leave in Paris, hoping that the time away from home would help us bond as a family instead of being sucked into household tasks.

I bought the tickets shortly after Everest was born (and only waited that long because I couldn't buy an international ticket without a birthdate! It was a carefully considered trip, but in retrospect I remember us being completely terrified and deciding to go with it anyway.

I'm so glad we did it, because this trip gave us the bravery to do all future trips with our very young children, and the memories we have from those trips are just priceless.

        What a great shot - he's so intent on what he's seeing in the guidebook! You're so right about how terrifying that first trip with a baby can be and then once you get it out of the way it becomes so much easier!

        I can see how this is one of your favorite pictures! How totally classic. And now he can look back & say that he helped out on that Paris trip way back when... :) Bet he's really reading the guidebook by now!

        Efforts are really appreciable. Anyone can easily understand the thoughts. Also I like the conclusions made on We Are Finally Live And Checkout The Freebies which is really very informative.
