Throughout Guatemala, Easter Week (Semana Santa) is celebrated as the most significant and festive season on every religious and social calendar. Joseph travels to Guatemala City, Antiqua and Lago de Atitlan to discover that while the observance is rich in Roman Catholic ceremony and tradition at the same time it leaves room for the popular devotion and beliefs of the indigenous Mayan culture. In addition, the communal creation of hundreds of beautifulalfombras (flower-strewn, multi-colored “carpets”) that line the streets in front of the religious processions is something to behold. The pomp, color, emotion and devotion all combine to create a once-in-a-lifetime travel experience.

What to Pack for Travel with Toddler.
Traveling with a toddler can be challenging; what to pack when traveling with a toddler doesn't have to be. Use the checklist below to make sure you arrive at your final destination with everything you need.
Travelling with Toddlers
Crayons/coloring books, activity books and puzzles are great - they are flat so they slide into carry-ons easily and don't weigh much. Kids can also do them on the tray table. Go to Target and comb through the magazine/book section. They have TONS of cool coloring books that come with their own crayons or other coloring instruments, like water pens (you fill it with water and then when the water comes out the tip, it colors the special pages - no actual ink). My kids love knowing they get new books for trips. And you don't have to worry about keeping track of a whole pack of crayons this way.

We have these great Baby Einstein ABC books, they came from Target for about 15 bucks, 1 book for every letter (they are small) and my son loves them. There are 3 pictures for each letter.
Sometimes when kids that little are in a new place, they just want to explore and don't need much else. They will want to look in every crook and cranny.
Baby Einstein DVD's always keep my boys attention, too. Right now we are working on sign language and my 21 month old loves it.
