Junior Rangers and a Grand Adventure

We just got home from an amazing adventure. We took a road trip to the Grand Canyon, parked our pop-up at Mather Campground and spent five days exploring. It was one of the best vacations ever. When we got to the park, we spent the first evening setting up and running out to Mather Point […]

New Pterosaur Exhibit at the Natural History Museum

Like most kids, my children have interests that pass. I thought dinosaurs and woolly mammoths would pass. I nurtured the interest like any good parent and expected the next year to bring a new love. And it did. We have added many new loves to our list, but one thing that has not passed is […]
