End of Summer Daycation!

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Cracker Barrel. All opinions are 100% mine.

I’m so sad that summer has come to an end. One of the best things about summer to me is our lighter than normal schedule. It allows our family the opportunity to jump in the car and get away for a quick daycation (a day vacation!) when we find a free day from work and summer camps, etc. We recently took a day (during the middle of the week, no less, whaaaat!) just for some special family time and had a blast at a huge water park near Chicago. It was a long, hot, crazy day doing the water rides with four littles but it was so much fun and such great memories were made!Waterpark Daycation // SmashedPeasandCarrots.com Continue Reading…
