As the days get shorter and the weather turns colder here, thoughts of escaping the winter to a warm, sunny locale start to cross my mind. Walking along beautiful white sand beaches, traipsing through majestic national parks, exploring the local food scene – ah…vacation… Then, I hear a small wimper, which gradually turns into a louder cry and *poof* – daydreaming time is O-V-E-R. As a new mom, the likelihood of going on vacation at this point is pretty remote. I have heard that some babies are good travelers, but how do you know until you try? What if my baby is not a good traveler? I’m afraid of being one of those parents that I used to feel sorry for on the plane, wailing baby and luggage in tow and just looking frazzled. We’ll just have to wait and see and take baby on smaller jaunts first to get our feet wet. Until then, the next best thing is pulling out my travel photo books and telling my little guy bedtime stories of all the wonderful places to see around the world. Here’s a couple snapshots of Photo Book Baby’s nursery with “surprise” – a travel theme!
I chose a travel theme for our nursery and enlisted my brother to draw line sketches of various skylines and locales that have meaning to my husband and me. We got it printed with a company that does custom vinyl decals. We think it turned out so well and love it!
Above is another shot of our travel decal which crosses over two walls of the nursery. We’re not done with the decor yet – the more neutral walls need a pop of color with some artwork waiting to be hung!
Here’s a link to the page on my site which is all about travel photo books where you’ll find links to all my blog posts on the topic. I updated it recently and wanted to share it with all of you!
Anyone planning any fun trips and/or any vacation photo books?
