For our family it is really important to know where our food comes from and I think it’s something every kid should get to see! Our favorite visit by far, is Dublin, TX, home of Dr Pepper!! We got a tour of their museum, watched them bottle some grape soda and each got to taste our very own bottle of Dr Pepper :) Ours kids are still talking about that trip!

Our family loves camping! We camp with a tent and backpacks up in the mountains. Besides the clean fresh air, we can teach our children more about nature and basic needs.
Kids LOVE the beach and I remember as a kid myself how it was just SOOOO much fun to spend a day at the beach! There’s nothing quite like splashing in the ocean, building sand castles, and coming up with all sorts of games to play!
Children’s Museums are wonderful places to visit because they offer things to keep your children entertained.
If you’re in the city, go to the country or if you’re in the country, go to the city. Even if it’s just for a day trip, switch the scenery your kids are used to seeing for a different point of view, explore the sights and see all you can see.
Visit a Fourth of July Festival to celebrate and learn why we celebrate. The pure joy of hot dogs, heat, and fireworks make the Fourth fun and most memorable moments in their childhood!
You don’t need to travel far to have a fun and exciting day. We take day trips to the Zoo or the Aquarium throughout the year to see all of the familiar animals, bears, lions, tigers, as well as new animals.
Whether your child be a wild child and will enjoy the fastest, highest, craziest rides available or a more calm personality who would love the merry-go-round and antique cars; an amusement park will keep smiles on everyone’s faces all day long.
One of my favorite summer getaways is a day at the wildlife ranch. Most animals can be hand fed and watching a two year old chunk food into a buffaloes mouth is pretty priceless.
I remember as child visiting Santa’s Village and Storyland in The White Mountains of New Hampshire. This is a definite must visit destination for children, with a lot of things to do and see and it can be quite affordable as well.
