Why The Cherry Life?
I took my kids to Darrow Park (aka The Dinosaur Park) this morning to play for a few minutes and a couple was at the park with their young son. They traveled from Ohio and are vacationing here this week for the first time. The dad asked me if I happened to know of other places they could see and do that were friendly for their almost two-year-old. Yes, yes I do! I noticed their large coffee cups and smiled – what is a vacation without fuel to go. I thought about the busyness of packing ALL THE STUFF for the kids and loading everyone in the car and hoping the directions are correct. Why does the GPS cut out at the most convenient time? Once everyone is in the car, you don’t want to stop for directions. You want to know where you are going and how long it will take to get there.
Traveling with Kids Can Be Chaotic
I have been there so many times, especially when in a new city that I have heard so much about, but know little about. I remember when we went to Petoskey for a friend’s wedding when our oldest was tiny. We had no plan and scrambled to find things to do and see, while feeling like we were wasting time. She was beyond done in the car and just want to escape the car seat. This is why I created The Cherry Life.
Family time is so precious. Real memories are made during the car ride there, with your toes in the water, watching your kid make friends with a total stranger. Eating ice cream, trying new local restaurants and exploring new sights, smells and tastes together. You figure out what to see, do, hear and taste with some guidance from the locals – especially other parents.
Together, we can share what we see, do, hear and taste to help each other enjoy more family moments. Thank you again for your help and support!
