    Natural Bridge State Resort Park Slade, KY | A Ruhm Family Adventure

    While we were on the way back to Delaware from our trip to Kentucky, we decided to actually stop by the Natural Bridge State Resort Park this time instead of just passing this on the highway. My husband had went several times as a child and wanted our kids to experience this as well.  I have to say, this is one of the most breathtaking views I have ever seen and it makes it even better that I got to share this with my children.  There were several hotel/motel options around the resort but we decided on the Lodge that is right by the Natural Bridge. It is an older lodge…

    When we lived in Central Virginia – going to Central Park FunLand in Fredericksburg, VA was our favorite place to take the kids. I figured since we were going up for the weekend, it would be the perfect place to take the kids for Jr’s 9th birthday bash. Fun Land was established in 1997, one of the first entertainment venues in the Central Park shopping complex, now part of Celebrate Virginia.  Occupying over 7 acres, Fun Land featured outdoor rides and attractions such as mini golf, go-karts and batting cages during it’s first season of operation.  Soon after, the 40,000 square foot indoor facility was added, making Fun Land Virginia’s Premier Indoor and Outdoor Family Fun Center.
