So recently visited “Uncle Buck’s Fish Bowl” in Colorado Springs CO. It was a fun place and a nice atmosphere. Guess it’s owned by BassPro sporting goods store. Also heard that they have them in various places across the states.
Very fun and friendly for families with kids, or just a nice place to hang out at. Also check out Groupon to possibly find deals or specials.
This is my second entry into the 2018 Ketchikan Film Festival. This one is more directed toward kids and has a few simple animations talking about the local area. The Film Festival will be judged on 8/24/18. For the animations I used the “Crazy Talk” program.
The pavilion is actually located in Westminister CO. We have gone there a few times. Lost of butterfly’s floating and flying around. It is very very warm inside, so best not to go in the middle of summer.
I don’t remember how many different types of butterflies and moths they have, but it was worth the time and trip. If your trying to take pictures, my suggestion would use a burst mode if your camera allows it and also a fast speed. Some butterflies can be seen relaxing on various plants, others seem none stop and always on the move. Kids of all ages really seemed to have fun there. If your in CO and have a little spare time I would recommend this for the family.
I believe they are open every day. To contact them visit there web site at:
So if you get to Anchorage Alaska, and want to go for a drive and possibly see some wildlife, take highway 1 south about 30 miles and right across from Whittier. It’s at mile marker 79. There is an amazing wildlife sanctuary.
They have almost any animal that you may see in the wild parts of Alaska, moose, brown bears, reindeer, elk and many others. During the summer I believe they are open every day and during the winter they are open on weekends. You can drive around the area or I suggest to see the animals the best and to get some incredible pictures park your car and walk around the area. The animals are behind fences, but nothing like a zoo.
This is definitely a place to take the kids, and they will enjoy it. If you go let me know what you thought. Then when your done you could drive to the Portage Glacier which is very close and also worth seeing.

Who hasn’t played with Lego’s at least once ? Most kids in the USA I would guess either have some or know someone who has some. A few years ago I found out that Lego’s aren’t just for kids. We took some of our family to S. CA and one of the stops was Legoland in Carlsbad.
There was so much to see there, especially the miniature section. They had New Orleans, San Francisco, New York, and many other places all made out of Legos.
They also had a Star Wars Section when we were there.
It was a place definitely on my must-see-list. They even had their own water park and aquarium.
