I missed my blog’s first birthday!

birthday cake

October 14 came and went without me noticing that it was the first birthday of this site.  It’s hard (for me, anyway) to believe that Travels with Children is a year old.  Like a child, it started out small and has been growing and changing since its first day.  If you happen across an older post, you’ll see that the format is slightly different now.  The appearance has changed a few times.  Guest writers have added geographic variety.

Still, the goal is the same.  I love sharing the adventures I take with my kids, and I hope you enjoy reading about them.  If it has inspired you to take your kids out when you’d rather stay home, led you drive the backroads instead of the shortest route, or helped you to find a new place to visit with your kids, that’s just icing on the cake.  The birthday cake, that is!

If you’d care to look back with me, here are some of the earliest posts, from a year ago.

Whether you’ve been reading Travels with Children since the beginning or have just found it, I thank you for stopping by.  If you have suggestions for the site, or would like to write a guest post, please let me know.  Don’t be afraid to leave a comment on any of the posts; they’re always interesting to read.

It’s been a great first year, and I look forward to seeing what the next one brings!

    Happy belated birthday! That’s a big milestone :)

    I was thrilled to reach the end of my third month today, so I can’t yet imagine how good keeping going for a year will feel for me.
