There's nothing like spending quality time with your children. I was and still am a total momma's boy.  I still get excited at 37 years old to see my parents and plan min-adventures with them.  My daughter Macy gets pumped over the littlest things.  She thinks a trip with me to my office is like going to Disney World.  I realized that its not about where were going or what were doing.  Its about the time we get to share together that puts a smile on her face.  She's definitely a "daddy's girl" and we share a lot of the same interests.

We recently took a trip to the beautiful Munsinger Clemons Gardens right here in St. Cloud.  I've been there a dozen or so times in the past but this trip was definitely special.  There's nothing like seeing things through the eyes of a 7 year old.  Macy took pleasure in the simplest of things while we were there.  The colors, smells and natural beauty that surrounded us at all times.  She loved that the Mississippi River was so close and enjoyed seeing the wildlife running around the shoreline (we saw a guy catch 4 fish in a matter of minutes).

St. Cloud and Central Minnesota have so many cool things to explore right here in our own backyard. You don't have to go to far to have fun exploring the states natural beauty and resources.  Take time to enjoy these special moments with your kids while you still have it.  You turn around and their 7 years old....in a blink she'll be 18 years old and ready to tackle the world.  When you hear parents say it goes fast, it does.
