Here is the list of the fun places we hit while in the US of A-finally-!

First we saw the St. Louis Arch A must if you are in the area.-

Next we enjoyed the Indianapolis Children’s Museum – A treat from my good friend Karen, we didn’t get to spend too much time there since we were on a time crunch so it’s on the list of places to go back and spend a whole day at! I highly suggest planning to be there the whole day, it’s
AMAZING!! Completely worth spending a whole day and more. -

Afterwards we arrived in NC and checked out the North Carolina Museum of Natural Science, North Carolina Museum of History – Both Free! –

While in NC we also enjoyed the Children’s Museum of Wilmington, the USS North Carolina Battleship, and the Discovery Place. There is also Discovery Place KIDS which we were close to a few times but never got around to actually going – so it’s on our to-do list for when we head back to NC for another visit-.

Before departing NC we also went up to the mountains and enjoyed a rainy day of fishing at Grandfather Trout Farm – you’re guaranteed to catch something, trust me we tested this! Despite the weather- and my lack of fishing skills- we walked away with 3 very large fish, we would have stayed longer because the boys were having a blast but we were all soaked and still needed to dry off before our dinner date with some friends-.

We also wanted to enjoy Chimney Rock while we were in the mountains but the rain prevented that, so it had to go on our to-do list for the next time we are up that way.

After leaving NC we landed in Washington and having a few days to burn before our next flight we decided to rent a car and do some exploring.

We hit Northwest Trek Wildlife Park on the recommendation of my friend Melonie – it was AWESOME! I highly recommend it if you are in the area - ,afterwards we headed to Mount Rainier National Park and had tons of fun hiking around.

Once our adventuring was over and done we boarded a plane to come back home, somehow we managed to squeeze a lot into a short amount of time, but we would have still loved to do more. There is always next time and we have a rather long list of places to enjoy!
