Live Space Station

I hope you are enjoying the great weather we have been having the last week!  We are looking forward to a week of wathcing NasaTV and maybe even heading out to a National Park for free admission.

My Pick of the Week

Live Space Station
Live Space Station

Ever wish you could drive up the coast and watch a SpaceX take off, but your not sure you could last 4 hours in the car with the kids?  NasaTV has you covered!  You can watch everything from blast off to video of the astronauts living on the space station.  This morning they were showing how the SpaceX rocket is disengaged from the space station.  Sure beats reality TV!

Ohio Wanderings

Grove City Welcome Center and MuseumWe were wandering around Grove City Ohio over spring break and wandered into a great little educational find!  The Grove City Welcome Center and Museum!  After you visit the museum, make sure you have money set aside for antiquing across the street, and grab some pizza at Planks on Broadway.  Planks is located in an hotel built in the 1850’s.  If that isn’t enough wander around the cornor to Grove City’s Plum Run Winery for a glass of locally gown and made wine, while the kids have ice cream across the street!

Take a Hike

Fern ForestBroward County Parks are pulling out all the stops for walks, hikes and bird walks!  Take advantage before it gets too hot!  You can choose from a variety of nature-related hikes and walks.

The Week Ahead for South Florida: Hiking, Parks and Museums

Grovelands Park Winchmore Hill

The Week Ahead is all about Earth Day!

My Picks of the Week

BOA Museums on USBank of America has a great program called Museums on Us. Bank of America offers it’s customers free admission to local museums all over the country.  It is usually the first full weekend of the month and you just have to present your bank card at the door.

We have been to the Museum of Discovery and Science and the South Florida Science Museum with the program.  Basically it means the adults are free (as long as you have a bank card for each person) and you just have to pay for the kids if they are over 2.

Click Here for the link to see other participating Museums (there are over 150) in your area.

It is strawberry picking time here in Florida! (Get it? Pick of the Week?)

Hiking Season!  Get out in nature!

Grab the chance to take the kids a little hike!  Need some tips for hiking with the Family?  Check out 5 Tips for Hiking with Kids or 5 Tips for Birding with Kids!  We love Boca’s best secret hiking trail (Yamato Scrub Natural Area)!  I also love Pondhawk Nature Center, it has stroller friendly paths and is near the playground.   Daggerwing Nature Center is really nice too, loads of playground, a nice small interactive education center, and of course playgrounds!

The Week Ahead for South Florida; Amphicars, Disney Springs & Camping

disney Springs

My Pick of the Week:  Disney World’s Fort Wilderness

disney Springs amphicarsWe did it again!  Sometimes we get a little crazy and head up to Fort Wilderness in Orlando.  Usually our Florida winters are perfect for camping, but we ran into a  few struggles, like a flat air mattress, extremely cold rain and a leaky tent.  Somehow, it’s still my favorite get away.  We don’t even go into the parks, we ride the boat to the Magic Kingdom, get on the monorail, walk around the lake and the all the hotels.  Check out my review of Disney World’s Fort Wilderness to find out all the amazing things the campground has to offer a family for a thrifty weekend getaway!

disney Springs amphicarsThere was something new at Disney Springs (this is what they are now calling Downtown Disney).  There have been some big changes there recently, a new parking garage and another one on the way!  We were fascinated by the Amphicars!  Yes you read that right, now you can take a ride in a real Amphicar!

The calendar is filling up quickly!  Please make sure that we don’t miss your next event and submit your event today!
