The Best Family Holiday Breaks in America

Are you considering your next holiday with the family? If you are, and you are like an active vacation, then North America has many options for you. Not only do they have plenty of things for the children to do, but they also allow you to get closer to nature and maybe even try some new things.
These are not just summer vacation spots; you can find a lot to do even in the winter months, though you might want to wrap up a little warmer.
Mountain Sky Ranch, Montana
The Mountain Sky Ranch is full of the Wild West spirit. It is a traditional dude ranch, but it offers so much more than that. There are some fabulous activities such as fishing, hiking, and riding horses. There is also a fun and busy kids program to keep them occupied.
The mountain air will smell amazing, and the rugged terrain will make for some challenging hikes.
Rocking Horse Ranch, New York
If you are unable to get out to the West to enjoy the ranch experience, then you can try Rocking Horse Ranch. Situated 90 miles North of New York, this family-friendly ranch has everything you need for a Wild West holiday.
You have everything a good ranch should have, nice trails to follow, horseback riding and a warm camp fire. There are nice rooms included and a kid’s camp that will give them a real taste of the great outdoors.
Heber Valley, Utah
The lovely alpine valley offers amazing scenery and even better activities. There is a vast trail network that will take you up the side of the valley and see it in all its glory. There is also a Heber Valley Railroad that powers through the valley and offers good photo opportunities.
You can also visit the quaint old town of Park City with its Wild West feel and high street shopping.
Mohonk Mountain House – New York
Mohonk Mountain House is another place you can travel to if you cannot get out West. It has lots of activities for adults and children alike, such as carriage rides, woodland hikes, trout fishing and swimming.
There is also a complimentary kids club for the 2 to 12-year olds as well as a teen program for 13 to 17-year olds. They can go on pony rides, tennis hiking, and orienteering. It has everything you need for a great family break.
Even if you cannot go out to the West of the country, there are still some amazing National Parks in most states that have excellent facilities and lots of activities to do. Hiking is the most popular type of activity; however, you can also find swimming, fishing, and sailing in most parks as well.
Wherever you decide to go, you will have a splendid time with all the animals and the stunning beauty that nature has to offer.

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most

Dry Idea: Deodorant Review and Giveaway

I know most of you know I was at kids camp last week and I think I mentioned the humidity and heat that we had that week!  I was daring as I only brought my new Dry Idea  deodorant  that I had never used prior.  I had no idea if it was going to keep me from smelling like B.O or if I was going to have sweaty pits. So how did the Dry Idea hold up to the hot and humid days at kids camp???  Arms raised high during worship in the morning and in the evening!  :)  I was dry and I did not stink!  :) WOOT WOOT!  I had the unscented brand and I usually do prefer a pretty scent but it worked and they do have scents which include powder fresh and cotton dry that I might try in the future.  :) The Dry Idea Roll-On is 24 hour protection, fast drying MicroCotton Formula, hypo allergenic, and contains Vitamin E.  :) Don't like roll on's??  They do offer Clear Gel and an Invisible Solid.  :) Dry Idea provided a free sample of their Advanced Dry roll-On so I could review them.  However,
