Every year I try to take the kids on a trip. I suppose it is a great method to show the adolescents other locations than where the two of us live. I also want them to get to know other parts of the country. It is scary to me when someone can’t name all 50 states. The four of us live in this country and yet don’t believe it. It is our goal that our kids will be correct with each area. I also love the method of them coming back to university in the fall and being able to share that they have gone to locations. I am not rolling in money though and I have 3 kids that I pack up. I have to be careful and pick cities that aren’t too costly. I also need to pick a village that caters to kids. What is the point of taking them to a village with nightlife and big bars? The most recent trip I chose was one of the better ones. I decided to take the kids to New Mexico for a week this summer. The four of us went to Albuquerque and just loved it. I took the kids to ABQ BioPark. The children liked going to the local zoo there and seeing all the animals the best probably. There was also a botanical garden, aquarium and Tingly beach too. That took just about the entire trip. I did demand a few moments in Old Town so I could look at the local arts and crafts. The adolescents didn’t seem to entirely enjoy it however there were plenty of food chances for them. In Albuquerque there are lots of cafes with relaxing little cafes that are all cool.
