Family Fun in Wilmington

Hello friends, I hope all is well in your world.  If you, like many other families are preparing for the kid’s summer vacation and you don’t want to spend a lot of money, think local.  It has been years since my sons were young and we always ended up vacationing in Orlando, however, there were a few places in Wilmington that we enjoyed visiting during the year.

Family Fun in Wilmington Last week I met a friend for dinner at Iron Hill Brewery on the Wilmington Riverfront, where by the way I had the best Fish Taco!  Before she arrived I had an opportunity to walk around and take a few pictures.  #bloggerslife

When my boys were young we used to take them to the now closed Kahunaville, but there are still a few places for the family to have fun in Wilmington.

The Delaware Children’s Museum looked like fun spot and there is also Frawley Stadium, home of the Blue Rocks where you can have some major family fun watching minor league baseball.  For the little ones in strollers, parents can get in some exercise while the tots ride along the beautiful Wilmington Riverfront.

24th Wedding Anniversary | Lunch at The Riverfront



24th wedding anniversary

Yesterday hubby and I celebrated our Wedding Anniversary a day early by having lunch at The Big Fish Grill on the Riverfront in Wilmington. We each ordered salads, hubby chose the Spinach salad with Tilapia and I ordered the Goat Cheese salad with Mahi Mahi. They were both very delicious and the service was great – thank you David.

It was a beautiful afternoon so afterwards we strolled along the Riverfront hand in hand talking and of course taking pictures, I even asked a few people to take our picture.

After lunch we both needed to take a walk!

Lunch at the Riverfront

Just as it was 24 years ago, it was a perfect day, bright and sunny.


I wore the floral dress purchased from Ross, sandals from Payless and the tote in which I used to carry my camera is from Avon.
