Our Visit To Reeves-Reed Arboretum

Summit, NJ

June 2017

A friend recommended this place quite a few years back.  She would take her family there to take some lovely family photos.  Reeves-Reed Arboretum is very local to us, and there is no entrance fee.  I wish I had gone there sooner.  However, you need to find the exact address and directions, as the place blends in with the residences around the area.  If I were just driving by, I wouldn’t think that there is anything there.

Our Visit To Colonial Park

Somerset, NJ

October 2017

A while ago my husband and I were talking to another bike riding enthusiast and he highly recommended to check out Colonial Park in Somerset, NJ.  He was telling us about the wonderful biking trails, and the lake, and paddle boats, and a great playground for kids, and a garden.  When a friend that lives nearby there invited us to come out and check out the park during their annual Rose Festival, we couldn’t resist.

Our Visit To Tomahawk Lake

Sparta, NJ

June 2014

When my husband was off for a week this June, we wanted to go to a water park.  After a bit of looking it was decided that we should go to Tomahawk Lake in Sparta, NJ.  This place has been on our to visit list for a few years now, so we packed our cooler with lunch, grabbed towels and a change of clothes and headed that way.

This summer was our very first time that we made it to the New Jersey State Museum in Trenton.  What a wonderful and surprising experience it was.  We all absolutely loved it.

Our Visit To Grounds For Sculpture

Hamilton, NJ

April 2017

Every year I would tell myself that this is the year I would make it to Grounds For Sculpture with the kids.  Every year I would get derailed, busy and distracted, and not make it there.  Many of our friends have gone there over the years.  Every one of them spoke highly of the place, telling me wonderful things, and what a great day it was there.  Finally, we made it!
