Before we started our North Georgia road trip this last time, we were picturing a lot of farm country and Civil War sites, as that’s what we’d experienced around Atlanta and to the south. Sure, there are farms, but the natural wonders of northern Georgia are its true draw. So many waterfalls in North Georgia! We plotted them out and
We visit Atlanta quite a bit since we have family in Georgia, and we’re always looking for new things to do with the kids. On this last trip, we finally got to visit a dinosaur museum: Atlanta's Fernbank Museum of Natural History. It was the perfect addition to a family trip to Atlanta. After six or seven trips we’re always looking
Something that we always try to do with our kids, particularly since we are worldschooling, them is visiting historical sites. We visit Atlanta Georgia quite frequently and I've gotten the chance to go to Martin Luther King Jr National Historic Site a couple of times. Oliver, our oldest is starting to understand why we visit MLK National Historic Site as

Did you know they can get snow and frost and stuff? OMG! Okay, that’s an extreme reaction to standard weather, but when we travel
Unless this is your first time visiting our blog, you know that we LOVE aquariums. We will find time to visit them on 90% of our trips (when available). We were welcomed into the Georgia Aquarium recently to experience all that the sea has to offer…in Atlanta, and for a Behind the Scenes tour. It was pretty cool. Like, way cool.
We’re big on aquariums in our house. We have a local one that’s free and open only 4 days a week…and we go EVERY week. Seattle has one that’s a boat ride away and we’ve been pass holders. Tacoma has one that is paired with a zoo and that’s just a quick drive away. And we travel. Did you know
