Years ago on a drive from Utah to Iowa via Yellowstone, we made a stop in Medora, ND. It's the location of Theodore Roosevelt National Park, and one of the coolest lodging accomodations we've ever stayed in...
That's right, we stayed in a real covered wagon!
My boys love Kansas, I didn't need to remind them of that. Every year we go to a 4-day flea market in Sparks, KS with their cousins. It's hot and smelly camping in a field and it's the most fun ever!
The Grand Canyon
On a spur-of-the-moment decision two years ago, we met family in Arizona for 3 days of hiking. Beck and Peyton did amazing!
Where are the places your children love to go?
Side-note: I had no idea North Dakota and Kansas were so the same,
but they share the same state bird (the western meadowlark),
and while Kansas is the Sunflower State,
North Dakota is the nation's largest producer of agricultural sunflowers.
