One of the things we love about where we live is that we are close to so many different size cities that we are never lacking for things to do, but we also have a ton to do right in our own town as well!
We can be in 3 different decent to large size cities anywhere from 20 minutes – 2 hours. This means that we have multiple places we can visit for summer fun and to see good friends. So far this summer we have been having a blast!
One of our favorite local places to go is a small zoo that is designed for younger children. It is not near as much walking and there are many animals they can feed and interact with. Our Lucas loves going to this zoo because he loves sharing the carrots with the animals. Of course, with mommy being an animal lover too, this is definitely an often visited location!
Another fantastic perk of our location is that our house is very close to two different local ice cream stands. It’s a delightful way to wrap up a day at the little zoo with a little bit of ice cream!
We also live close to a lot of natural areas that have been made for exploring and enjoying the outdoors. What a gift to be able to explore the beautiful world we have in the fantastic sunshine!
No summer is complete without swim lessons. No need to worry, though, because there are plenty of outdoor and indoor pool options to take a quick splash and learn about water safety!
Our location also lets us meet up with dear friends from college that are pretty central to us. It makes for good afternoons to get together for lunch, conversation and some walking around scenic areas.
If we travel just a few more hours we are able to get to an old area where we lived for six years and visit with dear friends. A perk of our job is that we can also be involved in their special days, such as weddings! Robyn was thrilled to be able to preside at the wedding of one of the kids that was in her youth group that she has now known for 10 years!
But even with all of the amazing places around us to visit and explore, there’s nothing quite like being at home and relaxing
