Olentangy Indian Caverns

One of our favorite spots to visit throughout the year is the Olentangy Indian Caverns. Located 20 minutes north of Columbus, in Delaware, the caverns gives you and your kiddos a full day of adventure. Not only do they have the beautiful caverns to tour, they have an animal encounter space, gem mining, a trail to […]

Inniswood Metro Park

One thing that I always rave about are our Metro Parks in Columbus.  One of our favorite parks is Inniswood Metro Park. The kiddos and I started visiting when L wasn’t even walking yet! We have only fallen further in love with it as each year passes. Located in Westerville, the 121-acre Metro Garden offers […]

Columbus Metropolitan Library

We participated in a Reading Club, earning awesome prizes and finding a few new favorite books. We dance and […]

Franklin County Fair

I love the fair. It is one of my favorite outdoor events. The food. The people. The animals. Everything! Something about the fair in the summer just feels right. The two just go perfectly together. We are lucky to have a few fairs in close proximity to us. This week, we have The Franklin County […]

From casual eating to specialty shops to indoor and outdoor play spaces, this is the perfect spot for a play date, rainy/hot days or just an […]

Stand Up Paddleboarding Lessons + Other Outdoor Water Spots

Last night, we did date night a little different. We skipped the dinner and the movie and headed out to Alum Creek to meet up with L.L. Bean Discovery School. I am sure you are familiar with the company, but, if not, L.L.Bean, founded in 1912 by Leon Leonwood Bean, and still family-owned, has long […]

Kids Spots for July 11 – July 15

Can you believe it? It is the middle of July! Summer is FLYING by and I am NOT OKAY with this. We have been so busy with vacations and other commitments that we haven’t had time to get out there and explore the city like we normally would. This week, I am at the Outerbanks, […]
