When my husband and I decided to take the kids on a family vacation, we wanted to have their input in our destination as well. We ordered pizza one night and talked about the fun places we could travel to. While I wished we could go to Paris or on a cruise like they wanted, we do have to stick to a budget. That didn’t mean we couldn’t still have fun though. When I suggested that we look at Cody Wyoming hotels because of the wide variety of things we could all do there, they were skeptical at first.

I showed them a website that has a really nice lodge. On this site, there is a listing of all the different things that we would be able to do there. They had no idea that they could experience life as Buffalo Bill did in his wild days, and they were really excited about the gun fighters and the rodeo that we would be able to see too. My husband thought that it would be a great spot to take our sons fishing too, while our daughters and I enjoyed the shoppes that are not that far from the lodge.

The best part is that we would all get to go to Yellowstone National Park. None of us had ever been there, and we knew that it was going to be really cool to actually see the geysers and hot springs. We all enjoy photography, and some of the most beautiful pictures we have seen are from the park itself. I wasn’t even done showing them all the things that we could do there when they all agreed that it was the perfect place for all of us to go together. The best part is that it is extremely affordable for us because of the inexpensive lodging we found.
