When we first sat around a restaurant table and came up with the idea of Small Fry, one of the first topics we wanted to cover was traveling with kids. We all have a pretty bad case of wanderlust and each have life goals of showing our kids the world. The part we seem to forget about this dream is that traveling with kids is hard work! The logistics of traveling and visiting a new place are tricky enough, but throwing in sleep schedules, spotting kid-friendly restaurants, and finding a park, museum, monument that will interest the whole crew? Consider us exhausted.
So this idea has since evolved into a new Small Fry series! We hope that by calling upon residents of cities you might be traveling to, whether it’s a quick road trip or a Trans-Atlantic flight away, that their expertise and experience of how they navigate their city with small fries in tow will make traveling with children that much easier. Welcome to Tiny Tourist! Five days, five cities, and we’re ready for our next adventure!
First up is our favorite Texan, Casey Wiegand! We finally met Casey in person this year and can attest that she is as sweet and thoughtful, deep-thinking and self-aware as she appears online. Her blog is full of beautiful photos and words, and her husband recently embarked on a Summer-long film tour for his upcoming documentary American Blogger! We’re happy to have Casey here today sharing the ins and outs of traveling to Dallas, Texas.
1. We just discovered our love for going to the Dallas Farmer’s Market & we are already hooked! There are so many beautiful colors and so many delicious fresh fruits hooked! There are so many beautiful colors and so many delicious fresh fruits to bring home. My kids absolutely love running downtown for an afternoon there! This last trip we filled our bag with fresh green grapes, flowers , fresh peaches and a giant watermelon!
2. Last year when I was on bedrest, my husband took the kiddos to the Children’s Aquarium a few times to let them see all of the beautiful fish and do all of the fun activities. Fair Park is full of treasures and the aquarium is a for sure win with little ones! My kids favorite part is petting the giant stingrays!
