Big Kiddo was almost 2 years old.
May, 2012

During the year that we spent in Bangkok, Big Kiddo spent all of it traveling with his dad while I lived out the last big bellied months of pregnancy and then the newborn months. They had adventures every single day. They saw all of Bangkok and plenty of the rest of Thailand too. Needless to say, Big Kiddo had his own personal photographer and I had infinite material for my posts about his adventures. 

Our life is a little different now, Big Kiddo doesn´t get to travel or explore every single day, but still quite often and now he does it with his sister. From his year in Bangkok and months in Laos, I got to make posts about him pointing at things he discovered, all the noodle soups he ate and about the trains he had been on. I haven´t done a post like that in a while, but looking through our archives about our travels around the South of Thailand, I saw that kiddos have been on lots of longtail boats. And then I fished out the external hard drive and found more photos of Big Kiddo before Little Kiddo! So here it is, the Longtail Boat Anthology.
