Wildlife Experience

The snake got your attention, right? For those of us on the south end of town, the museums are not as plentiful as for our downtown friends. Several years ago, The Wildlife Experience came to Parker and made a trip to the museum a little less painful. (Okay, I know all of the city moms are rolling their eyes. But some of us suburban girls have a hard time with city life - parking, street directions, what exit to take, yada yada yada.)

To make your trip even more affordable, The Wildlife Experience along with Denver's 7 (KMGH) has created Lucky Sevens. On the seventh of every month, admission rates are discounted to, you guessed it, prices plentiful with sevens. Children are admitted for $2.77. Adult tickets cost $7.77. If you want to include a movie with your museum pass, prices increase, but still include a $.77 punch line. On the seventh of each month you can also purchase a family membership for just $70.

When you go, you'll want to see "Globeology" - a tour around the world! But that's not all you'll find at The Wildlife Experience. You can find everything you want to know at their website. Have you already been? Tell us what you love!

Mom Spot: Progressive Pioneer

Here is another blog I've come across in recent weeks. She has gorgeous pictures and her post yesterday was truly fantastic.

"Maine is pretty rainy in the spring.  And I lived in Oregon for awhile and it defines rainy.  So, a little rain rarely puts me in a gray mood.  In fact, this rainy, rainy spring we've been having here in Utah has actually made me feel quite cheerful!  Each rainy day has felt like something of a celebration."

Butterfly Pavilion

Of all the child-focused exhibits I wish I could visit weekly, Butterfly Pavilion is number one. I could spend hours in the rainforest-like room where butterflies dance through the air, lush vegetation sprawls from every corner, and a delightful assortment of other tropical animals make their home. You can meet Rosie, the resident tarantula and stroke a horseshoe crab as a wonderful side-light to your Pavilion trip. (Is there a child's birthday in your future? The Butterfly Pavilion is available for parties!)

The Sunset Stroll, a monthly event, gives you a more exclusive tour where you will see activities not seen during the daylight hours. A reservation is necessary. The Butterfly Pavilion is open seven days a week and summer is a great time to go! Schools are mostly finished with their field trips and you can walk the outdoor nature trail. Everyday, new butterflies are released between 12:30 and 3:30pm, and there are great spots to have lunch, so plan to make a day of it!

Frisco's Wassail Days

I'm so excited to bring you the details of this family event in Frisco, Colorado! Nothing says Christmas like getting up into the beautiful Rocky Mountains and celebrating the holidays nestled in a cozy town with your closest friends and family. Fresh snow. Lighted trees. Sleigh rides. Visits with Santa.
And it all starts with the Santa Dash for Cash - a 1K "fun run" in which all participants must wear Santa gear! The run is TOMORROW and when you register at you will receive a Frisco Santa shirt, a Santa hat and at the end of the run you will receive a stocking full of goodies including Wassail Cash (the official currency of Wassail Days that can be used at local restaurants and retailers) and a FREE pass for a ½ hour of tubing at the Frisco Adventure Park Tubing Hill. What a deal!!

Wassail Days is going on all week long (Dec 3-11). Start a new tradition with this annual event that has something for everyone in your family! (And, if you can&#…
