This summer my husband and I have planned a Staycation for our family. Our Staycation plans have only four criteria: they have to be kid friendly, they have to be fun, they have to be local and they have to be free (or close to it). I hope to teach the children that adventure doesn't have to be costly or require lots of travel to be fun and that it can be found just about anywhere. It's a good lesson for me too!
This weekend marked Staycation Week 1 for us since the kids are out of school. So, we took the kids to a local scenic park. Amazingly, on such a gorgeous day, the park was pretty low on the visitors. When we made our way over to a historic landmark on the property, the girls went crazy observing all the wildflowers around!
The kids even helped to spread some wildflower seeds with a bonus that they got to make a wish!
What did they wish for, you wonder?
Well, to be able to stay up late and chase fireflies!
And guess what?
Their wish came true.
