Baby will soon complete 50-state road trip

Baby Goes Viral For Cross-Country Trip

By Natalie Dreier, Cox Media Group National Content Desk

She’s only 5 months old but a little girl is finishing up something that may be on the bucket lists of many adults -- to visit all 50 states in the U.S.

But age isn’t stopping Harper Yeats. Her parents have taken her on a road trip to end all road trips and hope to finish the journey on Oct. 18 when the family gets to Vermont, “Good Morning America reported”

The Green Mountain State will finally get crossed off Cindy Lim and Tristan Yeats’ list that took them four months to complete.

And while many will say little Harper is too young to remember the once-in-a-lifetime trip around the country, her parents have taken a photograph after they crossed each state line to help document the journey.

The trip has been documented on Instagram.

👋🏼 Hello from Alaska! ••• Check out this awesome state sign alternative we found in Anchorage AK. It’s a mural painted by @greetingstour, who are on their own 50 states journey. Swipe → to see the only other state sign we could find (at Anchorage Airport) 😬 I think it’s safe to say the mural is way cooler ! •• Hi, I’m Harper! I’m 21 weeks old and am on an epic trip around the USA. My family is trying to visit all 50 states before the end of the year, which could make me the youngest person to do it.

The trip will also make Harper the youngest member of the All 50 States Club and she may even get a Guinness World Record title out of the trip. But Guinness has to create the record before the family can submit the application, “Good Morning America” reported.

Who did this better - my family or the Tanners? I’ll put a poll in my stories! ••• We visited the Painted Ladies while we were in San Francisco, a must for Full House fans. We also visited the actual home of the Tanner Family, but it was fenced off, boarded up and covered in signs asking fans to go away - not the nicest photo op! Are there any famous television/movie locations we should be checking out as we start to make our way through the Midwest? ••• Hi, I’m Harper! I’m 19 weeks old and am on an epic trip around the USA. My family is trying to visit all 50 states before the end of the year, which could make me the youngest person to do it!

Lim and Yeats are originally from Australia but live in Canada. They started their drive around the country in June just a few weeks after Harper was born and near the beginning of Lim’s year-long maternity leave, “Good Morning America” reported.

👋🏼 Aloha from Hawaii! ••• If you follow my stories, you will know that I had some trouble finding a state sign to take a photo with in Hawaii (there being no road borders and all). Here are a few alternatives I found... L-R: ≫ (1) Road sign in the town of Na’alehu - I like to pretend ‘Na’alehu’ means ‘welcome to’ 😉; ≫ (2) Hawaii crest at the Kona International Airport - lighting isn’t great because both times I was at the airport was night time 😒; and ≫ (3) A DIY version made by Mummy with dried palm tree leaves and captured by Daddy on his drone at the Punalu’u Black Sand Beach. Which is your favourite? None of them are perfect, but I love them all! ••• Hi, I’m Harper! I’m 19 weeks old and am on an epic trip around the USA.
