Welcome to Have Kids Let’s Travel! We have kids…and enjoy travel. We enjoy the new and different, and also love to spend time with one another. We do a lot locally, in and around Maryland, but also national and international travels.  Our angel, Malcolm, is with us all the time and was my inspiration to start documenting our travels and blogging for funzies.

Eagles Game – London Edition - It is scary to feel like joy will never again truly touch your soul.  My 5-year-old son lost his first tooth and I was distraught….I started crying.  All I could think was ‘Malcolm will never lose a tooth.’. Moments like this are a frequent occurrence.  Specifically, when this pertains to my son and daughter, I …
#RememberingMalcolm – London Edition - It was in February, when we first decided to come over for the Eagles game, when the idea of #RememberingMalcolm really started to take shape. This trip to London was special and different for Chris and I, so we wanted to find something particularly meaningful in the memory of our sweet boy.  While sifting through …
London - London!  What a rich experience you were.  This trip was so emotional for us, and between our #RememberingMalcolm moments, the Eagles game, sightseeing, pubs and taking in a show in the West End it was all we could have asked for. Approaching this trip was so different.  Everyone kept asking if we were excited. I …
School Supplies for Haiti – OC, NJ - I try to research #RememberingMalcolm things to do ahead of time.  Maybe I need to refine my searching skills, but for our trip to Ocean City, NJ I had difficulty finding something that felt like the right fit.  It is hard to identify a real area of need in this beach-resort town.    Our stay …
Ocean City, NJ - Classic.  Ocean City, NJ is stuffed with summer childhood memories.  One of my first vacation memories is staying in a dingy motel just off the boardwalk (vibrating bed and all!  I thought it was the most fun thing ever.) and my parents letting us stay up very late to actually finish a game of Monopoly. …
Some #RememberingMalcolm Aaaamazingness - Hero Bear (HB) appears all over this site and Instagram.  Hero Bear was given to us by Living Legacy Foundation of Maryland when we made the very difficult decision to donate Malcolm’s organs.  Something that we could hold onto as we were coming to grips with Malcolm’s death was that there was potential to save …
Cherry Springs State Park, PA - The reason people flock to Cherry Springs State Park,  and the reason we and my brothers’ families agreed to drive 4.5 hours for a few nights together, is to see the stars…all of the stars…to infinity and beyond.  To Malcolm. Cherry Spring State Park is one of the best places on the eastern seaboard to …
Natural Bridge, VA - There were some fun things that lured us to Natural Bridge, VA.  One was a classic American roadside attraction….FOAMHENGE!!! Chris and I had been here before, but absolutely wanted to share it and take photo ops with the kids.  A few days before we left I was doing some quick recon on details and saw …
Healing Through Travel - It has been a long road we have walked since Malcolm died, and it continues to stretch out in front of us in daunting valleys and peaks.  Though I often still feel hazy and lost, I have also made an effort to focus on how to find myself/ourselves. One thing I have always craved is …
Park Questing - Once we had two children we had to be  creative in finding cheap fun. We enjoy hiking and being outdoors, and while looking into Maryland State Parks I stumbled across Park Quest.  Park Quest is a cost effective and creative way to explore Maryland State Parks. I’ve looked at surrounding states, but have not found …
