5 DIY Games for Travel with Toddlers

Even though my son Judah is turning 2 in a few weeks, he has traveled more in his short life than I had by the time I was 30.  In the last two years, we’ve taken the him to Paris, Mexico (twice), New York many times, Chicago, Arizona, California, South Dakota, Denver, Michigan, Missouri, and […]
