The Memorial at Ketring Park

Today would be an excellent day to visit the World War II Memorial at Ketring Park in Old Littleton. I feel certain if you've been reading at Mom In Progress for long you've heard about Ketring Park. My kids and I often take walks or bike rides around the park, sometimes in conjunction with a trip to the Historical Museum or Library.

I'm keeping this post short today because chances are you all are out enjoying friends and family like I am - too busy to read blogs and be online! If your in the Littleton area and happen to be without plans, you won't be disappointed by taking a trip to see this beautiful memorial on such an appropriate day.

Frisco's Wassail Days

Friends, 
I'm so excited to bring you the details of this family event in Frisco, Colorado!

C'est la Vie: The Men In Our Lives Part 2

As promised, tonight's post is full of Father's Day ideas for the man who loves music. I am including links to some pretty standard stuff, but also had some fun digging up a few gems that might interest you! I'll start with my obvious favorite (and very inexpensive!!) suggestion:
Pandora One (better sound, ad free, fewer interruptions, and more)Tickets to a Music Festival (you can find them all at this link!)iPods and iTunes gift card (or docking station - this one got good reviews and has a clock radio)Concert Tickets at Live Nation"Stuff" from their favorite band (don't be scared by the homepage... search for the band you want or browse alphabetically and you'll be glad you did. You'll find lots more than t-shirts and bumper stickers)A vintage instrumentThe Rolling Stone Illustrated History of Rock and Roll

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."
