This January we took our family to San Diego. I’ve shared how the trip was a Christmas present and a few of our experiences: Sea World, the beach and taking 3 kids 6 and under on an airplane!
When we were at Sea World, Eleanor wanted to get a snow globe. I quickly noticed a sign that said they were not allowed as carry-ons. It was at this point that we realized we needed a plan. We decided that the kids would each get to pick a pin. Relatively inexpensive and super easy to fit in our suitcase.
When we got home. I went to Hobby Lobby and picked up these felt banners. They come in 2-packs and are $1.99–making this super cheap and simple.
Pop the pins in!
Yes, it really is that simple. Each kid has their own banner with their pins that they picked out. I cannot wait to have the whole banner filled up with amazing family memories.
Quinn was at school, so no picture of him holding his banner. He was excited to come home and find that his pins finally had a home!
While we are talking about memories and souvenirs, I just have to share pictures from our day at the San Diego Zoo. I absolutely loved the San Diego Zoo! It is a gorgeous botanical garden as well as a zoo and the sunshine and warmth was nothing short of magical.
I would love to know about your favorite family vacation? Do you do souvenirs?
