What can you do during a Covid-19 summer vacation? Get outdoors! Join us as we explore Illinois and go hiking with kids at the Lowden State Park trails to visit the monolithic statue called The Eternal Indian (The Blackhawk Statue). On a Covid-19 summer vacation, especially after home learning for several weeks, the kids can get bored easily. The best way we found to keep the kids happy and to explore a new place is to plan outdoor adventures. State Parks are great places if you want to hike with kids because they have bathrooms, picnic tables, and often playgrounds. Always bring lots of snacks for the kids, too. We brought doughnuts! In this episode, we visit our first nonprofit bakery, The Village Bakery! This bakery employs a staff of all different abilities to help support the local community. Check out the links below for more information.

COVID-19 has changed all of our lives. It doesn’t have to ruin our summer vacation, though! After moving our family halfway around the world during a pandemic, we have settled in the Midwest for our summer vacation. Today, we visit Illinois’s, Lowden State Park. It turns out that hiking is a great way to practice social distancing, too! We kick off this off the episode with a doughnut stop at The Village Bakery in Oregon!
