Summer is by far my favorite season here in Minnesota. The days are longer. The kids are out of school. The family appears to be more relaxed from the hustle and bustle of the school year. What better way to spend your summers than at an outdoor waterpark. Minnesota does not disappoint when it comes to swimming options.
Thank you Minnesota Children’s Museum for sponsoring this post. Minnesota Children’s Museum provided us with tickets to explore and enjoy the museum. All opinions are my own.
Minnesota Children’s Museum is located in downtown Saint Paul and opens all year round. It has three floors of fun for kids to explore and run around. The boys are super excited to spend a day at the Minnesota Children’s Museum. We have been there many times before and they always enjoy their time there. Each time is always a different experience. Be prepared to be here for at least 2-3 hours. This would allow the kids ample time to explore all there is to offer and really be able to enjoy it.
Is anyone ready to go island hopping in the Abacos? The Abacos is a chain of islands in the Bahamas. It is about 120 miles of paradise with a panoramic view of beauty that awaits you.
We had decided on a trip to the Bahamas with our very dear friends and their boys. Not only would we have great company on this island vacation, but we will also be spending Christmas together. A week-long vacation in paradise.
Bonjour! We finally made it to France!! Vang grew up in France so naturally we had to visit. He still has siblings living there. I was excited to not only visit France but be able to meet the rest of his siblings. We wanted to wait until the boys were big enough to be able to travel to such a big and busy place. As well as being able to handle the long flight.
As we were leaving Grand Teton National Park, we felt that our trip thus far has been quite relaxing, fun and a huge learning experience for all of us. Now we start our 8-hour drive to our next stop Denver, CO. Vang lived in Denver for quite some times 20 years ago so he was looking forward to seeing the city and how much has changed. As well as catching up with some friends and family.

Yellowstone National Park
Planning our itinerary for Yellowstone National Park was as detailed as the road trip itself. There is so much to see in so little time. Our hotel was located just outside the West Entrance but to get the most of our trip, we decided to enter the park through the Northeast entrance and make our way to the West Entrance. We really wanted to stay inside the park but all lodging was booked solid. You can opt to camp inside the park but I wanted a comfortable bed and it gets pretty cold in the night.
