Vegas For Families: Valley of Fire

Vegas for families: Valley of Fire 
We ventured off to Valley of Fire this trip so the kids could experience it. Remember to go early if you’re like us and go in the summer!  Valley of Fire is about an hour drive with one gas station stop/casino/store. Stop there if you need gas because you won’t have another chance for gas in the valley. You should also stop there because it’s unique, gifts, bathroom, and it’s interesting. 
All of the adults had been before (a first for the kids), but this is a place you can visit numerous times and it is still amazing! There are so many things to see and different trails.  Best parts: I watched the kids climb around ( no pics of climbs because I’m mom-spotting from below every time). We found many lizards because it is still early and the kids hunted for snakes although we have a variety of feelings about finding a snake! We saw the petroglyphs again which is awesome too and elephant rock of course!  For pictures

Summer 2019 Family Camping


Family Camping


Ever try convincing a hotel to let you have 5 people in one room? You know you can fit. Your children can sleep 2 on a bed and one snug between you and your hubby. It's doable according to any traveling family who can't imagine allowing two kids to be in a room alone in a hotel room while the adults are occupying a separate room. Besides, two rooms is expensive!  This was one of our inspirations for finding a way to vacation as a family of 5 without breaking the bank or separating the family into two. 
Snuggles outside, this is family time at its best!
NH Camping


Camping allows for a lot of time outside. Besides hanging by the fire, playing frisbee or ring toss, we also love to get in the water. We pick campsites carefully and make sure they provide a water source ie pool, lake, pond, river. My family prefers the campsite on the river like Saco River in NH or the pond in Wareham. 

Maple Park Campground, MA

 At Maple Park in Wareham, MA the campsite rents paddle boards and kayaks. Although not cheap, still less expensive than buying one unless you are seasonal or going to rent a lot. 
Renting some toys at a campground in NH

 Sand castles - adults, teens, and my little one got involved - and we won! 
 Another family favorite at campsites is something referred to as "mining". We've seen this at a few places now and my kids enjoy finding the rocks.


Eating! Yup your kids will eat a lot of food! Pack wisely and if you forget anything stop at the snack shack or camping store. There's always coffee and candy to hold everyone until s'mores.. I mean dinner.
