Forget the resolutions and intentions and try making a 2023 "to do" list with your family instead! There's so much to do and see and experience in the Treasure Valley that your list might be pages and pages long but creating these "core memories" with our kids is so important! Let's not let the year go by without finally doing some of those "oh we should definitely do that someday" things pass us by! What do you say?
Need some ideas? We just happen to have a few from 2022...
