There is nothing better than family time. On our recent trip to Iowa we popped over to the Omaha Zoo in Nebraska with family. The kids absolutely LOVED all the animals but I am pretty certain their favorite part was when I snapped that photo above of them enjoying a train ride around the property.
For me, though, the Jelly Fish and Peacocks. Those were my favorites, they are such beautiful animals. The Zoo had this Giraffe encounter where you could get up close and personal to them and the best part? FREE! We didn't have to pay to get closer!
Even on vacation it can be hard to have relaxing family time, especially with little ones. Making sure you have some quiet and calm fun is a must.
I'm a firm believer that vacations are a time for regrouping.
A time to refresh your soul.
A time for serenity.
So you can image how excited I was when we got to my in-laws new home in Iowa this week and THIS was the gorgeous view from their driveway.
Crops for days.
It was perfect. Our first true family vacation and I couldn't have asked for a better one.
Vacations are a great bonding time for families, trust me. Traveling with THREE kids 6 and under is ROUGH. You learn how to bond quick on that airplane to keep everyone happy.
Stay tuned in July for my Tips for Traveling with three and a recap of all the amazing fun that happened on our Iowa adventure!
Until then.. tell me about YOUR first family vacation on our comments.
