Idaho February 2021 wrap-up

Hello, my bucket list friends! It’s time for the last post about this month’s trip to Idaho. My last day in Idaho I went to a family member’s farm and saw some very cute animals. It was like being at a petting zoo! I have so much fun each time I visit the farm. After the farm visit I went out for one last dinner with some other family members before going back home the next morning. I’m back home now and I’m happy to be back in the sunshine but I miss being able to eat inside restaurants!

More adventures in Idaho

Hello, my bucket list friends! I’m back in California but I’m still excited to share my latest Idaho adventure with you. On Thursday I went to go see the Titanic exhibit at the Discovery Center of Idaho. The exhibit was very interesting it was amazing to see the artifacts that came from the Titanic. At the end of the Titanic exhibit there was a dinosaur exhibit. That was fun to see. I loved dinosaurs a lot as a kid. After the Discovery Center I went for a walk on the Boise river green belt. It was a fun walk I enjoyed looking at the river. This was a really good day filled with adventure! I hope all of you are enjoying adventures as well.

My wonderful day off !

Hello, my bucket list friends! Friday was one of my days off from work this week and it turned out be a really good day so I decided to write a post about it! First things first I got an article published on Vocal Media! Blogging helped me to find my love for writing and now I don’t want to stop! I would love to be a professional writer one day. ( You can read my Vocal article HERE) Also on my day off I went to two of my favorite places Starbucks and the Dollar Tree. I got coffee from Starbucks and walked around with my mom and the neighbor’s dog at a small park. Then it was time to go to the Dollar Tree. At the Dollar Tree, I got some fun craft kits. The Dollar Tree already has some of their Easter stuff out and I just had to get some of the Easter themed craft kits! I also got some Crayola heart shaped bath bombs. I’m excited to use the bath bombs and the craft kits. To sum this all up between getting coffee, going to the Dollar tree, and getting an article published it was a truly wonderful day. I hope all of you are having wonderful days as well.

Hawaii adventure

Hello,my bucket list friends! I just wrapped up a family vacation to Hawaii. It was my first time going to Hawaii and I can’t wait to tell you about the adventures I had. Let’s get to it!

After our layover in Seattle. My parents and I flew to Hawaii. My sister had arrived the day before so we met her at the hotel. That evening we walked to a nearby shopping center for dinner. We ate at a movie theater that was also an awesome restaurant. I had a really good veggie burger there. After dinner we went to this cute little market. They sold some really great souvenirs there. The next day we went to volcanoes national park I highly recommend visiting there if you ever find yourself on the big island. There were these really awesome steam vents that were sure to warm you up and fog up your glasses at the same time. While walking on certain trails at the park it felt like I was walking in the rainforest! Another one of my favorite things about this vacation was the pools at our hotel. I love going swimming so it was awesome having access to swimming pools especially an infinity pool. Our Hotel was also right on the beach. One day we rented snorkel gear and went snorkeling on the beach. We also went on a boat to do a Manta Ray snorkel/ dive. My mom and I went snorkeling my dad and sister went diving. It was so amazing to see the huge manta rays up close. Unfortunately I did get sea sick. Another activity I highly recommend is a kayak tour called flumin Kohala. It is a very relaxing ride. Overall it was a great and much needed vacation. Oh and I almost forgot ! I got to go on a coffee tour. It was awesome!

Hello, my bucket list friends ! I thought it would be fun to tell you about my latest adventures. Ready ? Set? Let’s go !!!

My adventure to the pumpkin patch and other fun places

On Saturday my mom and I went to a local pumpkin patch. We went to this location last year and I really like it. It’s on the smaller side and that’s one of the things I like about it. Also the crowds are pretty low compared to some of the bigger pumpkin patches I’ve been too. I enjoyed taking pictures in this pumpkin patch . I also found the perfect pumpkins to decorate. After the pumpkin patch we went to the Dollar Tree. I haven’t been to this location in a while but I’m really glad that I went because I finally got the glow in the dark beads I’ve been wanting! After that we went to Michaels to buy supplies to decorate our pumpkins with. While we were in Michaels I spent a good amount of time looking at the Christmas stuff. I know it’s October but I can’t wait for Christmas time to begin. I got blue and green paint for my pumpkins I also got a cute craft kit and a few other fun things . In my next post I’ll talk about decorating my pumpkins! Thanks for reading!

Montana adventure part 4

Hello, my bucket list friends! Welcome to the last part of my Montana adventure. I’m excited to tell you about the last part of this fun vacation so let’s get to it!

 

Montana adventure part 4

Day 7

This was our last full day in Montana. We had a few more things that we wanted to do before we headed for home the next day. Our first stop was the Yellowstone Kelly interpretive site. It’s a interesting place with a lot of information about the man known as Yellowstone Kelly. After exploring the interpretive site we went on a walk before getting an Uber to the Yellowstone county museum. I’m really glad that we went to this museum it was one of our favorites. The museum had exhibits inside and out. My favorites are the big train outside of the museum and the exhibit about baseball inside. This museum also had a gift shop and I got a really nice snow globe.The museum is located next the airport. If you ever fly into Billings and have the time I highly recommend going to see this museum. After our museum it was time for something that we were both really looking forward to massages! We had made appointments at the Massage Envy in Billings for some much needed relaxation. After our massages we went to eat. Then we headed back to our hotel to pack. I  really enjoyed my last full day in Montana!

 

Day 8

On day eight we spent a lot of time in airports. Our flight wasn’t until evening but check out time was noon so we spent quite a few hours in the Billings airport before our first flight. The one highlight of spending that much time in the Billings airport was getting a huckleberry chocolate bar! Our first flight took us to Salt Lake City. After spending some more time in that airport we were headed for home! I had great time in Montana! Thanks for reading.

Montana adventure part 3

Hello,my bucket list friends! Welcome to part 3 of my Montana adventure! I can’t wait to tell you more about this fun adventure so let’s get going!

Montana adventure part 3

day 5

On day five we went to check out a Goodwill store in Billings. I like going thrift shopping in different places because every area has a different style. I really enjoyed the Goodwill in Billings. It was very clean and organized. I was able to find some nice things including a book on how to style an American girl doll’s hair, a TY beanie boo puzzle, a shirt with purple stripes and a few DVDs. After thrift shopping we went to down town Billings for lunch. We went to the Montana Brewing Company. I really enjoyed the flat bread that I had there. If you are ever in Billings I would recommend eating here. After lunch we took a walk around downtown. It was a Sunday and most places were closed. It felt weird walking around downtown with hardly anyone else around. That night we went for a walk at a park. The park had a beautiful river but it also had lots of mosquitoes so we had to cut our time there short.  Overall it was a nice relaxing day except for the mosquitoes!

 

day 6

On this day we had a booked a tour that would take us to some of the most popular spots around Billings. We got picked in a pretty amazing Jeep. Then we were on to our first stop at the Little Big Horn battle field.This well known historical place is worth a visit. There is a lot to see there. After exploring the battle field we went on to explore Pompey’s Pillar. The pillar is mostly famous because Clark of Luis and Clark carved his name there. The area itself was beautiful and I really enjoyed exploring it! After that we made a quick stop for lunch before going to explore the Moss mansion. Going in to this house was like going back in time. I loved they way it was decorated. They also had a game going on at the mansion where they hid school supplies in each room. I wasn’t keeping count of how many I found but it was fun to see what I could spot as we explored each room. After we finished exploring we stopped at the gift shop. Then it was time to go on to our last stop of the day. The last spot the we explored that day was Pictograph Caves state park. This park is well known for it’s cave paintings. Even though a lot of the cave paintings have chipped away you can still see them a little bit. I  heard that you can see them better on a rainy day. Even without the drawings the caves are pretty cool to look at. After our very fun tour we went back to the hotel for some much needed rest! This day was filled with lots of adventure.
