SteemFest 3 with our Kids

We brought our three kids to SteemFest 3 in Krakow, Poland. Ages 9, 7, and 5. They were definitely a novelty (other than our kids, I only saw a few babies and a toddler), and we got a lot of positive comments from fellow attendees. Several people told us how happy they were to see kids at the conference. Others told us we inspired them to bring their kids in the future. All in all, it has been a great experience. Jetlag definitely worked in our favor allowing the kids to stay up way later than normal (2am for bowling night!!!). And naps were helpful :) We have had fun meeting other Steemians and exploring Krakow. Here are some pics from the trip (so far--salt mine tour and closing dinner still to come).

Good to meet you too! Would love to see your kids next time :)

Wow! The place was amazing! Beautiful!

Yes, it was very beautiful. Fun experience :)

U & R. Thanks for sharing Corinne. Great shots and the kiddos are enjoying the trip. Have fun but I think you already are. 😊

Thank you! Yes, we are having lots of fun :)

wow, seems you are enjoying a lot. The place is wonderful. Have Fun!

Thats good to know! I have 2 littles and as a witness i wanted to come, but as a mother i couldnt leave them esp. my youngest is only 4 yo and we have no relatives living in the same country as us to watch over should i decided to attend 😅 cutie pattoties you got and awesome to read you guys had fun!

For a little more detail, my husband @lukestokes attended the whole conference. The kids and I sat through the opening keynote session, and that was the only session we listened to. Other than that, we were there for all the meals and a lot of the social things (bowling night, boat cruise, salt mine tour, art show hangout, etc). In between, I would take the kids back to our hotel and get them naps to make up for staying up so late and some down time. It worked for us and I'm glad we came :)

I saw your kids quite often, and whenever I did they are having a lot of fun and laughing their asses of :D

They (and I) had a good time. Only went to one session--the opening keynote--and then did all the social stuff. Haha. Lots of fun :)

Wonderful to have met you and the whole fam! Very cool kids and props for bringing them out to the Friday Steemian performances. Lifetime memories for sure!

Thanks :) Good to meet you too!

Ha! They loved the castles huh?

Yeah, but we didn't get to see the inside of the castle. Heard the inside was super cool. Did you see it? Oh...and thanks again for the toys for the kids. They have really enjoyed them :)

No, unfortunately. Was told since the holiday was in full force, most of it was off limits. Got some good pix from outside though😋

It was so great to meet you all, and get so much fun time with the little ones at the airports. Hope you guys are back home safe, and ready to move to your new home soon! Lots of Love!!

It was such a blessing to spend time with you and your family. Your kids make my heart glow with love, and that spills over for yourself and Luke as well. Grateful to connect with you and grow my Steem family in a very real way.

It was so good to meet you! Thank you for your kind words :)
