Wednesday Weekend Windup: Say It Isn't August Already.....


It really hurts to be typing 'August' right now. We have a lot of family fun coming up this month but it just seems to have come too fast! Hopefully, the good weather will stick with us and everyone will have a FANTASTIC weekend!

If you are short on ideas for fun, here are a few:

Dust Off Your Boots for a Family Fun Time at Donley's Wild West Town


**Disclosure: We received complimentary admission for the purpose of conducting an accurate review. No compensation was received. All opinions are 100% my own.

Sometimes taking little ones to an amusement park can be quite a nerve-wracking experience. While Donley's Wild West Town does have a menacing bank robber here and there, the park is perfect for kids under 11 and provides for a fun day in the Old West for families. We visited Donley's Wild West Town in Union, Illinois this month and I have to say my daughter was eager to explore from the minute we entered the park

Spending a day in the Wild West:

Dust off your boots and grab your cowboy hats and holsters, Donley's Wild West Town is a fun way for parents to enjoy the sights, sounds and experiences of the Wild West with their little ones. Wild West Town really exemplifies childhood fun by grabbing your imagination and transporting you to another place while encouraging hands-on activity. You first enter the park through the museum and gift shop. Once you open the door to the park, you are greeted by a Wild West Town, a corral to lasso "cattle," a lively carousel and plenty of space to move around! Yes, space--the entire time we were at Wild West Town we felt that we had space to move around which is definitely welcome when visiting with little ones.

{Healthy} Snacks for the Road


So, you are heading on a road trip but want to keep things healthy{ish}. This can be especially challenging with children that are extremely susceptible to the guiles of mass marketing. With some advance planning, though, you can keep things a little healthier. Getting the kids involved will also be more beneficial. If the kiddos are able to give a little input and make some of their own choices {withing parameters}, they will be more likely to eat healthy snack choices.
