Once I became I parent I wanted to give my children a different childhood from what I had. I wanted to expose them to different states, countries, and outdoor experiences. I also like to take them to do regular outdoor activities.
We have taken our boys to the fair for my oldest son's second birthday. We took them to a farm and cornfield maze for Halloween. We lived on a island for many years so my oldest son had his fair share of trips to the beach. My two year old experienced his first zoo & insectarium/butterfly garden in New Orleans when he was 7 months old. Then after my youngest came along and we moved to NC we took them both to a zoo here. There have been a few trips to a couple of science museums. We spent many weekends taking strolls around different state parks. We also spent many weekends on the trails on a nature wildlife preserve near us in SC. There was a trip to a trampoline park and indoor playground with inflatable jump houses and slides. They have been to an arcade or two. Hiking in OK on preserve. My oldest got to go to a military air show on the base near us. Also, fishing, infant swimming classes, and most recently toured the capital building in NC.
On our to do list is going to a water park, get bikes and a trailer to go on bike trails with, and maybe a carnival.
They have been to a few different states but hopefully within the next few years we'll be able to take them across the boarders and overseas.
