Give Thanks: Part 1/2

I don't usually post on Sunday, but I just found a great offer that I want to be sure you have a chance to take advantage of! This week and next is going to be all about giving thanks. What are you thankful for? What makes Thanksgiving and the upcoming Christmas season so special?

If you don't already have plans for Thanksgiving and want to get away, consider Solitude Cabins in Estes Park, Colorado! At a rate of $150/night, its an absolute steal! We stayed here with some friends several years ago and the accommodations are lovely. The setting is magnificent - out of town but only a few minutes to the heart of Estes Park shopping and dining. Here are the details for the deal:


We still have some cabins left for Thanksgiving!
At $150.00 per night  plus tax and fee, there really is no better deal in lodging in Estes Park!  Friday November 26, 2010 is the annual "Catch the Glow" parade.  The lighted parade is truly one of the unique events that captures the simpleness of the holidays.  Make your reservations soon and come back and warm up by your fireplace.  We are offering the $150.00 rate per night for all two night stays...PLUS A 4:00 PM  CHECK OUT!  This offer is vailid until January 31, 2011.  Make your reservations for Christmas and spend the holidays in the mountains where the air is crisp and peace is easily found.
 
RSVP to stevekruger@solitudecabins.com and tell them you found the deal 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…
