Baby Flyer’s 2016 In Review

 

img_7217

The last flight of 2016 has been taken here at Baby Flyer Blog.  All in all, Baby Flyer has flown 25 flights, totaling 34,500 flight miles.  We’ve had so many great trips to visit family, attend events, see some of our favorite places, and also to just enjoy being together.  She’s been a pro flyer overall, even ‘helping’ her Mommy complete American Airlines’ platinum challenge by flying 12,500 miles in just three months, qualifying them for AA’s 50k status level through January 2018.  Our combined family flight miles this year came in at just over 135,000!  (We’ll be posting more on elite status and family flying soon, and you can see CET’s travel photos from the year at Cruising Altitude).

We feel so lucky to be able to travel as a family, and have so many wonderful experiences.  With this in mind, it seems like a good time to look back chronologically on our year of traveling by putting together some of our favorite travel pictures, and a couple from home life as well.
