I've written about it a few times, so it's probably no surprise to you that our family enjoys a little adventure. It's not all that uncommon for us to tell our four children to load up in the car, "we're going on an adventure."
The best thing about an adventure is that sometimes it's a road trip up north, sometimes a weekend at an outdoor music festival, and sometimes it's an afternoon spent not that far from home. This is one of those.
Last week, our kiddos had a half day of school their first day, which means we had time for a half day of adventure! You can't travel super far in a half day, but fortunately, there's plenty of great places around here to explore and create memories with our little people (which is really what it's all about). The best part is - as you can see - all we packed were their personalities!
We decided to head over to the campus of Michigan State University, and start with some of the best ice cream you've ever had at the MSU Dairy Store!
MSU also happens to have some of the best places to explore, including the Michigan 4-H Children's Garden. You could spend an entire afternoon here. Trust me, we did!
There are a lot of ways to create memories and share an adventure, and most of them don't require a lot of money, planning, or travel. In fact, the most important ingredient in a family adventure is time. Together.
We know very well that there'll be day that will come far too soon, and these four little people will be off on their own adventures. We'll be thrilled for them, of course, but for now, we're so thankful to get to share as many adventures as we can!
