Welcome to my website. I am a freelance writer with 2 growing and active children. When they were younger we would do something special a couple of times a month, just to spend some quality time together as a family. Now that they are teens I kind of miss that.
Luckily we live in the Twin Cities and it wasn’t really all that hard to find something new and fun no matter what the time of year. Sadly my children are now teens and not particularly interested in spending time with (gasp) parents.
I have found that I am still passionate about helping other parents find fun things to do with their children. Sometimes that means getting out of the house and sometimes (particularly in the winter here in Minnesota) it means staying in.
If you live here in the Twin Cities, or are planning to visit check out the attractions page. For any attractions we have personally visited I wrote a review you may find helpful. There are over 70 family friendly attractions so you should be able to find something everyone can agree on.
In addition to the listed attractions there are many parks that have activities to enjoy year-round. In fact, the thing I found most surprising when I moved here to Minnesota is that cold weather doesn’t seem to keep people inside. Everyone just bundles up a little bit more and enjoys the great outdoors anyway.
In 2016 I am thinking about trying to post a new activity every day for the entire year – just to see if I can do it. I will have to give that some more thought, but if you have any recommendations I would love to hear them.
