Lola's Sugar Rush

All I can say is this: You're going to love Lola's!

Okay, you know that's not all I'm going to say... You're kids will double love Lola's!

Lola's Sugar Rush, located in historic downtown Littleton, is everything that is right about boutique shopping with a sweet twist! You're drawn in off the street by the chic and whimsical pink and brown awning. You walk in the door and your eyes instantly feast on the array of colors that seem to glisten from every glass jar - each one full of sugary goodness!

Whatever your pleasure, you'll find it at Lola's Sugar Rush. The shelves and tables are bursting with candy of all kinds... some I feel certain you could spend weeks looking for and never find anywhere else. This is not the candy aisle at your local grocery store. There are chocolates, hard candies, gummy candies, jelly beans (oh, the jelly beans!), and an assortment of beautifully decorated cupcakes that will stop you cold.

You'll also find gift baskets (like the Colorado Medley pictured above) and pre-packaged concoctions to meet every need (Mother's Day is almost here!). If you can make it out of the store before tearing into your purchase, you're a better woman than I am! And the best part, you can bring the kids... guilt-free! There is a delightful assortment of twenty-five cent candy and ninety-nine cent candy that will make them feel like they are getting something really special, and you don't have to steal money from your date night fund. (No date night fund? Me neither. You won't have to steal from anywhere else either.)

When you visit their website, be sure to check out their birthday party options. Because do you know a kid, any kid, who wouldn't want to have their birthday party at a candy shop??? Special occasion or just because, Lola's is a sweet pick!

PS. When you go, be sure to say "hi" to Lola for me... and tell her you saw her Sugar Rush at Mom In Progress!

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!

Make a Difference: Black Stallion Literacy Program

Although it's hard to pin down our very favorite summer activity, one would have to be our afternoon with the Black Stallion Literacy Project. I was unfamiliar with the program until it was brought to the HoneyBear Tree Preschool at our church and my children attended with other children from the community. The Black Stallion Literacy Project (BSLP) is a program that is well represented around the front range in Colorado, but extends across the country from it's roots in Florida.

Born of a family heritage in 1999, BSLP has grown to serve hundreds of thousands of children across the nation. The purpose and goal of the organization is clear on their website:


"The Black Stallion Literacy Foundation is an innovative partnership of educators, businesses, volunteers, education foundations, and staff members focused on promoting literacy through the winning combination of live horses and books by Walter Farley. The program is based on the classic books of Walter Farley an…
