So grab one... make your life a little easier!" -Tracey Johnson Morning News Anchor FOX19

"Laura and Terri have compiled a resource that inspires creative memory-making outings featuring mom- and kid-tested destinations. As a former leader of MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) I have recommended Laura and Terri as speakers many times. Their travel knowledge and first-hand experiences combined with their genuine encouragement to try new things is a real gem to parents looking for play dates homeschoolers looking for field trips and families looking for weekend fun. Not only have I dog-eared this book but I often give it as gifts to new moms and grandparents and new families to the area so they too can enjoy it. Three cheers for two moms &amp one great book!" -Rhonda Headley retired MOPS Area Coordinator and mother of two
