With kids, it seems like we are constantly exploring and enjoying the outdoors. Here in the Amarillo area, we have a fun spot that we love to take the kids to, for a day of fun and to explore, we love the Palo Duro Canyon, and like many other families in the area, it seems like it is a whole new adventure every time we go! I find this to be true about all of the great national parks I have been to! Taking your kids to explore the outdoors can be very exciting, and it also teaches your kids about the beauty of nature, it gives them an appreciation for the world around them while having fun! This Saturday, May 19th, is the second annual National Kids to Parks Day, which encourages children to get out and play. So take advantage of this weekend and take your kids out and explore and play!!!
