Afternoon drive to clearwater beach in Tampa!

We drove from Orlando to Clearwater beach for the afternoon adventures and dinner, the drive was pretty amazing we are so much in love with the palm trees, so we busted music out loud and started singing ”Maroon 5: what lovers do” making memories. We finally made it to Tampa and all I wanted was to park asap and feel the sunshine on my face and walk on the beach, I have seen pictures of the sand so it was my time to experience all that beauty.

The most beautiful and clean beach ever, we loved it, it was 55 degrees but coming from wisconsin, we were not going to complain about the weather, we waited for the sunset while picking some seashells and build a sandcastle. There is also a busy playground nearby that Armani was happy to hang out with other kids.

This was definitely the highlight of the trip, seeing our daughter embracing the beautiful weather and feeling the sand in her feet, she was waiting on the sunset and slowly getting tired but she braved the cold and had fun.It was getting windy and cold!

The beach started getting busy with lots of people within 10 min professional photographers, tourist, and local people came to view the sun going down!

A gentle reminder of why we travel and how fortunate we are to see so much of the world.

Every day’s an adventure when I step out of my door.

Governors Island!


 A hidden gem located in Madison!

Governors island is a small natural park,  part of the island is privately owned, one main trail runs the perimeter of the island. We went for an afternoon walk, the weather was 30 degrees and nice for afternoon hike. The trail was very slippery with ice at this time of the year, I suggest you wear yarktrax for safety. My husband slipped on the trail, so pay attention. We looped around for half a mile before we headed back to the parking lot. The trial is easy to follow from the gate, you wont get lost, it’s a busy lake right now with ice fisherman, and parking can be tough. We enjoyed the afternoon walk it was peaceful and the view was gorgeous as always. The trail is flat and dog friendly. The trail is really small I highly recommend this park for daughter who is three years old enjoyed this short hike first time to the lake. I cant wait to check it out in the summer.




This was one of the days we just needed to get in a car for a drive as a family and go on the adventure, my daughter fell asleep on our way and napped on my back for the entire hike. It was 30 degrees .




me and my daughter we are wearing the beanie from they are insulated and has a double layer, its one size fits all and comes in three colors.

Turville point conservation park!

The great thing about this germ is how it changes with the season, we really enjoyed this trail in the spring my daughter used to adore the wildflowers, and chasing the ducks around the park, then we came in the summer the trail was shaded all the way and gorgeous but the mosquitoes were brutal.

we came here in the fall and the colorful leaves on the trail was just gorgeous and few bugs around fall season, this trail in the winter is my favorite because I enjoy quiet walks in the woods and a good view of Monona terrace and Capitol building and my baby will nap along the’s family friendly and kid friendly, I can let my daughter walk as long as she is happy, or carry her and hike faster than I usually do with other people.

In the summer we love the playground it’s never crowded and they have clean restrooms for the public.

I usually don’t take any pictures on this hike because there is really nothing to capture it’s a walk along the woods.but once you reach the other sight along the lake I always take pictures of the lake with downtown.

In the winter the lake forms this icicles near the beach side.

If you plan to hike at Olin park in the winter will suggest you bring hiking poles, wear good hiking boots, because the trail gets slippery, there wasn’t much snow on the ground when we went, there was no need of snowshoes.

The trail is easy to follow, they have signs showing skiing trail and hiking trail, so pay attention where you going.

Wisconsin Adventure family Ratings :Easy 1.5miles round trip, hilly some part.  Small beach area along the trail and fine sand to play in.

Today we kicked off hike it baby 30 challenge, this is last challenge of the year. We had been planning to check out this amazing hidden germ in Baraboo since spring, little did we know it was not even actually hike, to this amazing spot. I was very excited when we got here since baby girl wanted to be carried, from the parking lot to this spot it was approximately 0.3 mi round trip 0.9 mi. the trail is rated moderate not sure why but I will rate it easy, especially since my toddler was able to run all the  way to the trailhead. The trail is good for all skill levels. I highly recommend this trail its toddler friendly, But I got to warn you, A portion is closed because of some stupid people who have been investing their time vandalizing this area. So if you end up going stay on the trail and respect nature, and guidelines, read more information on the link provided below.
