Favorite Places in Cheyenne so Far

We haven't been here long but we have been getting out a bit. We visited the Wyoming State Museum, which is very eclectic and free! It is way better in person too! The web pics don't do it justice. They have something for everyone from dinosaur bones to old railroad memorabilia.

We also absolutely love the Paul Smith Children's Village at Lion's Park. They have a stream to play in and a "secret garden." And lots of Waldorf type exploratory learning. Richie would like for me to take him everyday after school.

There are trains everywhere! Even at the park...

And I work in and old building downtown called the has an original Otis elevator...with an elevator operator...they know all the history of the building and most of the gossip! Richie went with me to clean my office one Saturday and the elevator operator was off work...we climbed 15 flights of stairs. But he loved looking at the Union Pacific Railroad from my office window.

And I try and make the kids take pictures with the boots in town for Grandma every week!

How I became Considering frugal

Fueled by the growing list of pollution related allergies my family suffered from each day, and inspired by my 97 year old grandmother who could recycle ANYTHING before recycling was cool, back in 2011, I decided (in the spirit of the Julie/Julia Project...) to embark on a journey to see just how much one family could do to change our planet. I didn't consult any other parties before I launched this idea. Thankfully my husband, daughter and son are usually my biggest supporters. Here is the catch; as I'm normally very thrifty (you can note from early blog posts), I was looking for ways that I could reduce our carbon footprint and make socially responsible purchases without increasing our spending. Mmmmmm. We succeed in changing some of our habits a bit and finding ways to reduce our footprint. There were lots of fun epic fails alone the way too! But the biggest change we have made over the course of the last six years, was to move from the mega city of Phoenix to Wyoming. You can read my full bio on my About Me page.
