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 - The Space Needle

If you are in an area that is still in the process of opening up or has begun to shutdown again and there aren't many (or any) museums and attractions in your area open for visits, you can still get your dose of culture. Many museums and other attractions offer 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 are doing so as well, and we have been sharing our virtual visits in our weekly What-To-Do Wednesday posts. We we will continue to do so until we can return to our regular Where-To-Go Wednesday posts.
