When Sophia was only 2 months old, Cesar, Sophia, and I took a trip to the mountains in Tennessee. At that young of an age, Sophia couldn’t have been a better traveler for our 10 hour drive up to our cabin. A year later…not so much. At 13 months old, in planning our trip to upstate New York, we new good and well we wouldn’t be able to cross the Florida/Georgia line before we had one cranky little girl on our hands.
In the past, when traveling up to New York, we have flown several times, but most of the time, we drive. With Sophia, we made a very, very good choice to fly. We weren’t sure what to expect with a newly walking one year old, but she did great.
Here are a few pictures of Sophia and Cesar in the airport and on the plane.
Our main reason for going up to New York was to attend the wedding of one of my cousins, but we decided to make a whole vacation out of it. My cousin and his bride had their wedding in Skaneateles, NY, a small little town about 30 minutes from Syracuse.
We flew into Syracuse on the Friday night before the wedding. After getting our rental car, we decided to get dinner at Dinosaur BBQ in Syracuse, which was recommended to us by another one of my cousins. There was an hour wait, but man, was it worth it! It was so good! After dinner, we stopped by Walmart to get some milk for Sophia and a few other things then went to check into our hotel, Doubletree Syracuse, for the night. It was super clean and nice, so we were happy with our $60 Priceline purchase. I wish we had a few days to explore Syracuse, but maybe someday we’ll go back!
