    We have a new tradition of going to the coast every summer with the family with the kids before they head back to their dad’s. I haven’t been to Wilmington NC in a good while, so we spent the day there visiting the USS North Carolina Battleship and the Wilmington Railroad Museum. Wilmington houses many great attractions and there is so much to do; however, the North Carolina battleship is one of the most highly ranked sites in the Wilmington NC area. But the Wilmington Railroad museum was across the way and who can say no to anything trains? Surely not me. USS North Carolina Battleship When the keel of…

    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…

    10+ Pretty Epic Places To Visit While In Louisville, Kentucky

    Louisville, Kentucky is largest city, sits on the Ohio River along the Indiana border.

Made out for some amazing sunset pictures on a bridge. Now…

    Plan The Best Birthday Ever At Central Park FunLand

    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.
