Summer of KidsPost: Readers make the most of the outdoors


Summer is winding down, but we’re still enjoying reading all about KidsPost readers’ summer adventures. Check out how these four KidsPost-reading families are enjoying their time off. There’s still some summertime left, so be on the lookout for more Summer of KidsPost — and consider bringing a KidsPost page to wherever you’re having summer fun!

Max Melamed, 5, his sister Hanna Melamed, 8, and their cousin Isabel Melamed, 4, all from Washington, D.C., visited Breckenridge, Colorado. They learned about the city’s gold mining history, panned for their own gold and saw a mother moose with her baby while on a hike. This photo was taken after they took the gondola to the top of Peak 8.

Drew Doering, 10, of Washington, D.C., took a summer cruise in Alaska with his mom, dad and grandparents. While in Alaska, he took his first helicopter ride, got to land on a glacier and saw dozens of bald eagles in the wild. Here, he stands in front of a totem pole.

Ruby “Caili” Stanley, 10, of Arlington, Virginia, visited the Pentre Ifan in Pembrokeshire, Wales — which is the largest Wales megalithic tomb made from the same bluestone used for the tall, upright stones of Stonehenge.

Siblings Mirabelle Neirmann, 9, Phillip Neirmann, 12, and Victor Niermann, 21, of Ashburn, Virginia, went to the Blue River Arm in Summit County, Colorado. Mirabelle caught a rainbow trout and her dad fried it up!
