Visiting Walnut Canyon National Monument near Flagstaff, Arizona…

Walnut Canyon National Monument is located just outside of Flagstaff, Arizona. We love the Flagstaff area of Arizona – it is nothing like what one thinks Arizona is going to be like; it is mountainous, treed, and generally much cooler (temperature-wise) than if you travel 2 hours south to Phoenix. Walnut Canyon was established as […]

Front Sight Firearms Training Institute, Pahrump, NV…

The main reason that we went to Nevada this year, besides their fabulous Clark County Shooting Range in Las Vegas, was so that some of the family could attend a 4 day defensive handgun class at Front Sight Firearms Training Institute near Pahrump, NV.

This year, we spent some time in Nevada.   Our oldest son came to travel with us for a few weeks, and we met him in Las Vegas.  Las Vegas isn’t exactly the most family friendly town – in fact, it’s one of our least favorite places to visit!  But, there are a few family-friendly […]

Visiting La Jolla Cove and Kayaking La Jolla Caves…with kids…

We were tickled to find that San Diego is so family friendly!  There were dozens of activities to do in the city, and we were able to visit some really fun destinations.  One of our favorite things to do while we travel is to find out what the locals do, outside, for fun.  We have […]

There are tons of family friendly venues in San Diego.  We had just one week  to explore; we prefer to chose a few destinations and really explore them rather than just doing quick visits to many different stops.  One of our Must-Dos in San Diego, was a visit to the USS Midway Aircraft Carrier! After […]
