Summer Smiles Photo Contest – Calling all Cute Kids

Now,  if we are honest about it,  we all know that kids are not all smiles when traveling. However, on any vacation there are always those wonderful moments when your child is totally enthralled by whatever they are experiencing.  Maybe it was meeting Cinderalla at Disneyland, running through a fountain at the park, or flying through the trees on a zipline.  We are looking for photos that are a celebration of why families love to travel together.  Go ahead, send in your summer photos of your cuties smiling from ear to ear in total vacation bliss.
