Gymboree has always been a place we can count on to have fun styles that the kids love to wear. They have everything from basic pieces to patch jackets and sparkly sneakers. This year for back to school, the kids are so excited to express their own style...
If you have daughters, you may have heard all about the AMAZING mermaid tails that EVERYONE has on YouTube. My girls have been talking about mermaid tails for months. Then their cousin got a Fin Fun Mermaid Tail and since we were all going to be together in Florida on vacation, we decided to take the plunge. Pun intended.
When we were selecting items for our first baby's registry, I was overwhelmed by how many options existed for very specific baby needs. One item was to be used specifically for sleep, another specifically for play. Some were meant to be placed in the bedroom while others were better utilized in the living room. There didn't seem to be anything out there that could pull double duty in its functions or be easily transferred from room to room. We're city dwellers with limited space, so versatility in our baby items was not only preferred, it was essential.
Summer vacation for most people means that at some point you will probably go on a family vacation. We absolutely love to travel with our kids in the summer. As the kids get older and have more activities in the summer, swim team, baseball, overnight camp, football etc.. it makes it more difficult to go away for a long period of time. We love the idea of Staycation's or one tank trips! It gives you the opportunity to explore an area closer to home that you may have not thought of visiting before. In the past we have visited St. Louis, Indianapolis, Wisconsin Dells, Cleveland and more!
We recently visited Pheasant Run in St. Charles, Illinois. It is a full entertainment family golf resort. It has something for everyone in the family. Once you arrive at Pheasant Run you can park your car and enjoy your time with the family without leaving! Our family stayed in one of the newly renovated Tower rooms with a gorgeous view of the Golf course.
The kids loved the outdoor/indoor pool! They loved the fact that they could swim from the outdoor pool into the indoor pool. Of course they created their own game of it!
The resort has a fun area that makes you feel like you are on Bourbon Street. They have an ice cream shop, an arcade, general store, a couple of restaurants/bars and Zanies comedy club!
Pheasant Run is very affordable and a fun place to check out. If we had planned our trip right we would of also gone to a Kane County Cougar's game! As their stadium is nearby and a great way to watch baseball with little kids. Pheasant Run has great offers right now make sure you check them out here.
