About Me & My Family
I'm a mother
3 Kids 3-11 years old boys and girls

When we travel, good food and adventure always abound. Our family loves to push the limit of what we can do with children. Our mantra has always been - have kids, will travel. However, this doesn't mean I'm unlike most frantic moms before a trip. Wanting adventure and being a control freak can sometimes be a lethal combination.
Our Family's Travel Personality
adventurous, independent, spontaneous
We Just Got Back From
Massachusetts
Our Favorite Vacation Spot
Hawaii, Montana, Lake Tahoe
A Place We'd Love To Visit
New Zealand, Argentina, Brazil, Eastern Europe, Italy
Favorite Vacation Memory
Climbing Machu Picchu with a 4 month old infant in a slight and having all the locals stop us to ask what happened to his feet which were all bundled up. They just couldn't believe it wouldn't be bow legged.
Worst Travel Moment With My Kids:
Getting to the airport on our way to Scotland with my 15 month old and discovering that my husband's passport had expired. Instead of rebooking all of our flights, we decided that I would do the first leg of our journey on my own with baby. Unfortunately, we had not packed for me to be flying by myself. I could bearly walk to the runway with all my bags and a 15 month old who would get distracted by everything along the way. He then proceeded to sleep only 1 hour of the entire 11 hour journey (red-eye). It was pretty miserable.

Comment:
A very prominent and safe snow-hill exists in this very same park. I have driven around the city searching for other snow-hills but couldn't find any worth speaking of. They all seem to dangerous. Cottonwood Creek Park offers great winter recreational activities for the entire family at no charge. Families can enjoy a variety of outdoor activities like Frisbee golf, ice hockey, basketball courts, and tennis courts. There are even pavilions available at the park. I want to make it a point to state that this is a very pristine park, if I do say so myself. If snow sledding is not your "thing", make sure to check out the recreation center. They offer a public skate and hockey calender, available at the main desk. They offer in door swimming as well with a slide, accompanied by a wave pool, all year long.
