Another Grand Sight

Here is a riddle: Going down is an option, Going up is mandatory. Where am I? The Grand Canyon of course! While in Arizona, we decided to check one of the Natural Wonders of the World off of our bucket lists. To make sure we

Sedona Rocks!

We are no longer on our official Global Fieldtrip, but that doesn’t mean the fun and adventures have ended!  My dad had to be in Phoenix, Arizona for a business trip, so we decided it would be a fun idea for the three girls to

Nifty North America= So Much Fun!

Aloha! Did you know that “aloha” means hello and goodbye? North America was amazing and even though we live here, there is so much that we don’t know about our continent and even our own country. It was so much fun revisiting all of our

Cities of the Midnight Sun

There are strange things done in the midnight sun       By the men who moil for gold; The Arctic trails have their secret tales       That would make your blood run cold; The Northern Lights have seen queer sights,       But the queerest they ever did see Was

Alaska Ahoy!

Our time in Hawaii was very relaxing, but eventually it was time to move on. What better way to transition out of “resort mode” than to take an Alaskan Cruise? After a short, 5 hour flight from Hawaii we landed on the western shores of

A Hui Hou Hawaii!

To end off our wonderful time in Hawaii, we went on a hike up Diamond Head and went surfing at Waikiki! Our first stop was Diamond Head. We had to get up early in the morning while the sun was not too hot. Before we started climbing, we

Pineapples, Pineapples, and More Pineapples!
