I started this blog with one daughter, kept it up with the other, to spend time together doing something we enjoyed.
However, things change and people evolve. My daughters are older, busier, and not as interested in writing.
From now on this blog will be mostly mom with occasional contributions from my daughters and maybe even my husband.
Nothing else will change. We'll still focus on sharing fun places to go, fun things to do, and more, and we would  still love to hear your views too

What-To-Do Wednesday - Virtual Visits: Cajun Encounters Tours

If you are still stuck inside and/or if you are still not able to visit any museums or other attractions in your area, many museums and other attractions are still offering a variety of virtual exhibits. This is an especially great time to explore museums and attractions that are outside of your area and maybe even outside of your country that you ordinarily would not be able to get to because of time and/or money constraints. We will continue to share more virtual visits in our What-To-Do Wednesday posts until we are able to resume our regular Where-To-Go Wednesday posts.
