I read in an article once that one way to preserve kids memories is to remind them and to look at photos. I think about this a lot because we travel quite a bit as a family and I always wonder how much of these experiences my kids will retain…
One thing I have been doing is as soon as a trip is over I’ll upload photos and order a digital book. The kids look through the books a lot and sometimes after we read before bed we’ll pull one out and look at the pictures. I recently used Mpix to make a hardbound linen book of our summer trip to Malta. I was so impressed with the quality, not to mention their super fast shipping (mine came in 2 days!) My kids squealed when it arrived. I am not sure what memories my children will remember when they are grown but I love having a record of all our travels in neat little books on the shelf.
