In just over a month, two of my boys will be headed back to school. Our summer of fun will end, and a new school season will begin. We’ll get into our old routines, and I’ll spend my weekdays with just my little guy. The summer goes by in a flash, and we really want to make the most of the time we have left. When Frito-Lay offered to help us with a family activity before they head off to school, I was more than happy to come up with something new and exciting.
We live right next to Lake Superior in a tourist town loaded with outdoor activities and amazing views, so we decided to stay local. But to keep things interesting, we will do something our kids have never experienced before, a dinner cruise on Lake Superior. Beforehand we’ll enjoy time near the lake and then head out on the boat for a pizza dinner cruise. (Be sure to follow me on Instagram to see our trip in real time.) And my family isn’t the only ones celebrating something fun and exciting!
