June is Great Outdoors Month. The aim is to encourage more people to get out and enjoy the world around them. If you enjoy visiting national parks, I would encourage you to take a trip to Bryce Canyon National Park in southern Utah.
It is May in Minnesota, the days are getting longer and warmer. We come out of our winter hibernation ready to be outdoors doing something, anything! We are ready for adventures. Have you ever thought about the importance of adventure?
In the fall of 2015 we had a last minute change for our vacation destination because of a large fire in California. This change led us to Utah for a day at Zion National Park. We did some exploring of the park and discovered “The Narrows”. I thought the hike looked fun, but we were not prepared. I told my hubby that this is going on my bucket list, and I wanted to complete it before I was 60.
I don’t know about you, but I have a comfort zone that I like staying in. I am a type A personality so obviously I like to be in control! I like to have everything on a schedule.
This week’s post is written by my daughter Keshia. She was so excited about this farm she visited that I asked her to share her experience with you. The farm is an example of how a hobby, turns to a passion, and can ultimately become a business.
July is National Picnic Month which celebrates the history of this activity and the way it has been used to bring families, friends, communities, and countries together. To celebrate this we decided to take a day to go canoeing on the Mississippi River and stop somewhere along the way to have a picnic lunch. After all, the definition of picnic is an excursion at which a meal is eaten outdoors, ideally taking place in a scenic landscape such as a park, beside a lake or with an interesting view. So off we go on our adventure.
