Summer Getaways for kids!!

Here is another great blogging prompt from Social Moms! Today Alamo Insiders would love to know what your top 5 getaways for children are! I remember when I was in school and the last few weeks of school would be filled with conversations of what trips we were planning on taking and adventures we planned on having during the summer. I loved summer time, my mom always made it super fun, and I plan on doing it for my kids too. I have a few different things in mind that they will love this summer and I can't wait to get started on our adventures.

The very first thing I think all kiddos should experience is camping! I absolutely loved camping as a kid, so much so that I went camping every single weekend during the summer when I was a teen. Last year was the first year that I got brave enough to take my kids, but I am so glad I did. Both of them loved going and can't wait to go again this year. There's just something about sitting around the campfire making Smores and telling stories that is so relaxing!

The next thing is Disneyland or Disney World. We are planning on taking our kids next summer so while it's still a long way away, I am super excited. I think it should be like, a right, for every kid to go while they are elementary aged. I didn't have a chance to go, and it's defiantly something that I want my kids to experience.

Another thing that all kids should get to do during the summer is going to Yosemite National Park. We are working on doing that this summer. My family took me when I was little and it is something that I will remember forever. It was so beautiful and it almost makes you feel SO small in comparison. I loved it there.

If your kiddos are in or around Kansas or Missouri then a trip to Great Wolf Lodge would be awesome too. Their rooms are phenomenal. The prices are reasonable, and the best part is the swimming! They have indoor and outdoor pools and it's so fun! We had the chance to go last summer and I know my kiddos loved it and can't wait to go back!

The last place would be a fun trip to Worlds of Fun in Kansas City. They have cabins for overnights. They have the best roller coasters and tons of fun for the little ones. Snoopy Land is awesome. Their prices are also pretty reasonable. Yet another place that my kiddos love!

Those are my top five places for kiddos to getaway to! I hope you have a chance to visit some of them. Being a kid in the summer time is one of the best feelings in the world, they all should get a chance to do something fun!
