Traveling with children is equal parts exhaustion and fun. The words road trip will understandably strike fear in many a parent’s hearts but there are beloved moments you spend as a family that can only be had away from home.
A couple weeks ago the four of us packed up and headed out; 2000 miles, one ferry ride, and maybe an argument of two later I am here to tell you we had a great time. Wanna see what we did? ¡Vámanos!
Our first leg took us from North Dakota to Wisconsin where we stayed overnight with some friends before catching the SS Badger car ferry to Michigan.
I did manage to pull the kids away from the shore to visit the Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park which had an incredible Children’s Garden and an amazing sculpture collection (not to mention a gigantic horse).
