Harper Yeats is only five months old, but she's already seen more of the United States than most seasoned travelers.
Harper's mom, Cindy Lim, and dad, Tristan Yeats, are originally from Australia, but they've lived in Canada for the last three years. In June, the family visited Maine, and came up with an idea: What if they spent their leave traveling to all 50 states? It was something they'd always wanted to do, and they thought it would be even better if their newborn daughter joined the ranks of the All Fifty States Club. "It was just our plan to do it together and have fun," Lim told CBS News.
The family has checked off more than 40 states, documenting their adventure on Instagram with photos of Harper smiling in front of giant trees in California and sleeping next to a "Welcome to Maine" sign. They will reach their final state, Vermont, on Oct. 18, and Lim said she hopes that when her daughter is older, "when she looks at the photos and I tell her all the stories, that she can have the confidence that she can do anything."
