    Who would’ve thot there would be a Spam museum?! Lol

    • Reply TONYA March 9, 2020 at 3:24 pm

      Exactly! The Hormel headquarters are in Austin as well, so I’m guessing that’s why the SPAM Museum ended up there. 🙂

    Traveling with kids isn’t always easy but you’ve nailed it!

      I’m making a list of all the places I want to go eventually. Using the current non- travel time/quaratine to make my dream list. Thanks!!!

    The Spam museum looks cool! It is a Hawaiian favorite!

    What a cool city! I’ve kind of always wanted to go to the Spam Museum. It just looks like a lot of fun. My family would like the nature center, too. I’ll keep Austin, MN, in mind!

    • Reply TONYA March 9, 2020 at 3:22 pm

      Sounds great! My little girls had an absolute blast at the SPAM Museum, and there’s a lot for the rest of the family to check out, too.

    I had no idea there was a SPAM Museum anywhere in the world! How fun! Your kids are ADORABLE! Great photos of them too!

    I live in northern MN. Had no idea there was a SPAM museum in Austin! Looks like your family had a great time there!

    I would never expected SPAM to be a great place for little ones. Thanks for sharing.

    That’s lovely you all went as a family. Looks like the kids had lots of fun activities to do.

  • Reply Debbi H March 10, 2020 at 8:27 am

    How fun! This looks like a great place to visit with littles. And your kids are adorable! I was also intrigued by the SPAM museum. I probably would have avoided it because of the name, haha, but it actually looks like a really great place.

    • Reply TONYA March 10, 2020 at 9:20 am

      Honestly, I never would have guessed that it would be so cool. Who knew they would have such a fun play area for the kids?!

  • Reply Lisa March 10, 2020 at 9:25 am

    The SPAM Museum looks amazing! What a great educational and fun experience for everyone.

  • Reply judean March 10, 2020 at 10:15 am

    I didn’t realize they had a SPAM museum. I would have thought a SPAM museum would have been located in Hawaii – the capital of SPAM 🙂

    Wow, an entire museum of spam! Love it! Looks
    Ike fun was had by all.

    I would have never thought of the SPAM Museum being a must for kids! That’s awesome!!

    What fun! I love the activities you chose to keep the kids engaged! The food sounds fantastic too! I think I want some cheddar nuggets now! haha

    This looks like such a fun getaway for all of you. I saw your Caribou Coffee in the breakfast picture. I’m so jealous as Wisconsin doesn’t have Caribou anymore! The museums looked really fun. It’s always nice to find free stuff for kids to do.

    • Reply TONYA March 12, 2020 at 4:37 pm

      Oh, no! 🙁

  • Reply heather J jandrue March 10, 2020 at 4:17 pm

    It sounds like you made the most of a couple of days. The museum looks fun and the kids are adorable.
