Let’s talk PIZZA…and a GIVEAWAY!!

When I find a restaurant that I love…well, I need to share it! And when it is kid friendly and delicious, well I need to share it even more! Dining out with kids…well it isn’t always enjoyable or peaceful or relaxing…and you can’t carry on a conversation for more than 2 minutes before you are asked for a napkin or you need to catch your … Continue reading Let’s talk PIZZA…and a GIVEAWAY!!

Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge

So keeping to our adventure plan for 2017. We got in the car and made the 20 minute trek to this place – The Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge. It is a little slice of preserved land…that is quiet (except for the occasional plane over head because it’s close to the Denver Airport), serene and just plan cool. I was shocked, that we had … Continue reading Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge

It was an adventure. We drove to Buffalo Creek, Colorado and set off into the woods in a permitted tree cutting … Continue reading Christmas Tree Hunting

AND I hear ya! Seeing some of these animals in small enclosures, in habitats where maybe they should be in cooler climates, the glass walls and….ok I’ll stop. … Continue reading Its all Washed Ashore…

Pumpkin Patching

Our perfect Fall morning came true last week. Anderson Farms is located about 20 minutes north of Denver and is the best place for pumpkin picking in a real patch. We’ve been to some in the city, where they just drop a bunch of pumpkins off in a field and call it a patch…well this one is the real deal! It is totally worth the … Continue reading Pumpkin Patching

Discovering something new.

You know what is pretty cool? Discovering something new in a place you visit often…and realizing it has little to do with where you are visiting and offers peace and SO much imaginative play! That’s a huge thumbs up for this Mamma! During our recent trip to The Denver Zoo, we took a trip on the Train…it’s either that or the Carousel…and I usually side … Continue reading Discovering something new.
