I found a way to cut down on grocery shopping time, reduce waste and pick out special diet friendly meals all in one place!. I choose the recipes and send the shopping list to my favorite grocery pick up service and bam it’s so easy. It’s all in the eMeals app.
What’s so great about eMeals?
You can use it wherever you happen to be.
Choose from multiple grocery stores. (Instacart, Walmart, Kroger, Safeway, Shipt and more)
Shop your grocery list for pick up or delivery.
Find kid friendly meals.
Recipes that fit your dietary needs. (Keto, Diabetic, Gluten Free, and more)
I love eMeals because it saves me so much time and we are trying new things every week. It doesn’t get boring. We are signed up for the full package (breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert, occasions) and we are using it all! You can choose to sign up for as many meal times as you want. It is better than any meal delivery service we tried because we are in control and can access meals from our favorites list. Having so many weekly options is great.
I wont keep going on and on about how much we love it. I will give you two weeks free so you can try it and see for yourself
I think that Thermopolis is the not so secret, secret getaway awesome nature AND family fun experience just waiting for everyone in Wyoming. Hot Springs State Park is the main attraction here. One feature of the park is the Buffalo Trail Road. Park staff often feed the buffalo.
We didn’t manage to catch a feeding, but we did get to see some of the babies. It is important to remember that these are wild animals. Even if the calves are cute and the adults seem to be relaxing, do not approach buffalo. It is best to enjoy them from a distance or from your car.
Now that I told you a little about the nature in Thermopolis, I can tell you about Star Plunge. Star Plunge is not the only hot springs water park in Thermopolis, Hellie’s TeePee Pools is across the parking lot. Both of these pay for use water parks are located in the Hot Springs State park, but hey are not part of the State Park(you’ll have to pay to use). Here we are taking a dip at the Star Plunge Hot Springs Water Park. We have not been to Hellie’s.
You can take a free dip in the hot springs at the State Bath House. The Bath House is a free soaking facility with showers. In addition to these great activities there are mineral pools, hiking trails, interpretive trails, playgrounds, picnic areas, river access, amazing views and more. Check out the Hot Springs State Park website for more information.
An honorable mention has to go out to Taco Johns.. All of my boys love Taco John’s and were happy there was one in Thermopolis. They talk about going somewhere there is Taco John’s at least once a week.
We’ve had an adventurous winter break. We started off with a snow storm that ended up closing local highways. We’re lucky enough to only have to shovel ourselves out of our site. The roads are maintained really well and the highway is passable for us. We did see plenty of spin outs
The older boys got to take a trip to do night tubing at Ski Bowl. They went before the big storm. Ski Bowl, Meadows and Timberline all closed when the storm hit.
A laser light show and d.j. music played while they raced down groomed tubing chutes at Ski Bowl East. To find out more about tubing at Ski Bowl go HERE
Back at home we were able get bust out our sleds and use our very own hills for some fun sledding time.. I have a middle schooler who will wear shorts no matter what!
So, here we are getting buried in snow and breaks almost over. Wait, no it is over! It’s still a snowy mess and we decided to go to the beach..
The beginning of trip went smoothly with the only ‘difficult’ driving just the short trip to the highway. Even though the highway we live off of was still closed about 7 miles up the road you wouldn’t know it at our entrance.
We made it to about 30-40 minutes out from Florence and we were looking forward to stopping at St. Vinnies (our favorite thift store). The road was flooded and closed. Traffic not moving at all. I began checking the tripcheck camera. The camera happened to be pointing right at the new pool on the road. We waited and waited and discussed driving back to I5 and around to Reedsport. We didn’t want to add hours of driving when we were so close and there wasn’t an alternative route
Finally the drain was cleared and the water flowed away. We made our stop in Florence and got back on the road to Reedsport. Only, we had to sit in traffic again. The only way south crossed a bridge where a wreck had just happened and closed all lanes. After that mess was cleaned up we made it to our destination. A long day traveling deserved pizza for dinner. We ordered from Bedrocks on the Bay in Winchester and it was amazing!
At the end of the day, the older boys were excited for the side by side rental coming up the next day and the youngest was worn out and went right to sleep.
