Why travel the world, when you can go to Las Vegas and see it all? 🤷🏻‍♀️😆 and if you’re going to see Vegas, there is no better way than in a helicopter 🚁 Swipe across for a glimpse into our sunset flight over the strip with iflypapillon #sponsored #iFlyPapillon
The kids will tell you this was their fave activity during our visit to the City and it’s super affordable! Prices start at $85 each for adults and $75 each for the kids! It was cheaper to do this than see the show we wanted to see 🙈 and we had free champagne 🥂They had me at ‘Free Champagne’ 😂
And yes, that’s an actual rollercoaster inside a hotel 😂 #onlyinvegas (our kids were not tall enough to ride this, but there is a pretty cool arcade right next to the entrance of this that will totally help you avoid meltdowns 🙈) More to come on visiting Las Vegas with kids! 👀

futuremakerslv encourages kids to think outside the box, providing a variety of classes like art, music, and dance. We adore their free kids yoga on the lawn every weekend in front of mothershipcoffee. Also, watching the little wiggly kids try to lay still in shavasana is the cutest thing ever.⠀

Summertime on the lake. ☀️ 🏔 🏄🏻‍♀️ My Christmas present this past December was an inflatable paddle board. I had been coveting one since we moved near Tahoe almost a decade ago. Riding on the board might be the only time my kids sit still. 😊 It’s been a beautiful, peaceful escape from the chaos of real life. I wish everyone could find that place. ❤️ .
I’m going to start suggesting other bipoc voices to check out on IG on my posts. This week: go follow she_colorsnature for more outdoor adventures! 🌲 🥾 ⛰ .
