Road Trip Across America: Day 2 Daytona Beach!

May 2013


You can't go to Florida without seeing the ocean, so today we headed down to Daytona Beach for some sandy fun!

On our way there we passed by Daytona Speedway which you can take a tour of and even try the Richard Petty Experience.

Unfortunately we didn't have enough time to stop, but if you have some Nascar fans in your family I would definitely try to fit it into your trip.

Once we got to the beach it was a little more windy than we had thought it was, but we still wanted to try and have a good time.

It was the first time our kiddos had seen the ocean, and my little girl was super excited.

We stayed for about 3 hours and even though she was shivering by the end she didn't want to go.

She has spent probably 80% of this trip in some form of water, she definitely fits in here and she now says that she just wants to live on the beach. Laughing

My little boy however stuck one foot into our pool and decided that was enough, I can't even get him to take a shower!

He is definitely my little Utah boy. lol

Every time the waves from the ocean would start coming towards him he would run away.

He also decided he didn't like the sand touching him and he always had to be sitting in someones lap.

We have realized that while on vacation we have to prepare for at least one child not wanting to participate in the activities we do.

If you take kiddos on vacation always be prepared that you might have to walk away from an activity or cut it short if they get grumpy or decide they don't want to do it anymore.

All in all we had a great time though and we can't wait to visit one more beach while we are here.

If you have any recommendations please let me know! Smile


Road Trip Across America: Day 1 In Florida!

May 2013


Just in case you missed my post here, our family has vetured out on a roadtrip from Utah to Florida!

We are now in Florida and we are having a blast! Here is just a little peek into what happened on our first day.

We decided to go to LEGOLAND for my little boys 3rd birthday and he loved it!

It was so relaxing and nice. I was expecting a hetic theme park that was over crowded, but all we found was a the exact opposite!

If you want to have a relaxing theme park experience where you don't want to pull out you hair afterward LEGOLAND is the place for you!

I will be giving you a better inside look at our visit soon!

Wanna see what we will do tomorrow? Be sure to check back then!


FREE Alaska Travel Book! Great For Teaching! Also A Great Donation Item! (only 1 day left!!)

October 2012


Going to Alaska definitely isn't in our budget right now, but I would love to go sometime in the future!

To be completely honest it's never been a place I wanted to live, but I would love to just visit!

Right now you can grab an official Alaska State Guide Book! Because the budget doesn't allow it, I love at least looking at pictures of places.

Also I love using these to teach my little girl about other states. I recently received a travel guide for Maine and she loved looking at all the pictures and learning all about Maine!

This would also be a great FREEBIE to donate to a school!!

Hurry and head over here to grab your FREEBIE!
