Names/Ages:Kai (10 months)
Vacation Location: Pine Knoll Shores, North Carolina

Favorite Baby or Child Friendly Activity There: The Aquarium was great. There were divers in the shark tank and they came right up to Kai, who had his face plastered against the glass.

Best Tip for Traveling with Kids: My little one is pretty well-traveled. I have not had him walking on an airplane yet but we tried our best to always book the bulkhead. We would lay a blanket out and give him a few toys and he was pretty content- even after being delayed on all four legs of a trip connecting through ATL.

Favorite Way to Make it Feel Like Home: We brought his music. A CD for the car and ipod speakers for the room at night.

An Item you MUST Take With You While Traveling: A lightweight stroller. Between running through airports and long walks with the family, we would have been dying without it. All the grandmas would start out wanting to hold him but he is so heavy (and wiggly) that they would soon look for a break.

Thanks, Kim!
