Merle's and Juice in the City

It's time to start thinking of some great places to hang out this summer. If you can combine good food and good friends with a great atmosphere, you can be sure you've got a fun memory in the making!

Merle's of Littleton has been one of our favorite spots in Old Littleton since it opened just a few years ago. This fun corner restaurant on Main Street has some of the best food in town. Live music can be heard during the summer months and you can find that listing HERE when they post it. The menu is full of fantastic flavors that will keep you coming back. You simply have to try the fried pickle chips - yum!!

And thanks to Juice in the City, you can get your Merle's for 52% off!! The offer is good for $25 worth of food and drinks for just $12 - and you can purchase more than one. Don't miss this great deal and the chance to sit on the rooftop with amazing views of the Rockies. Or sit down stairs on a warm night while the garage door walls are open - true story! (Fun fact: Merle's was originally a body shop that has been converted to the present-day restaurant. The owner has kept much of the "auto" feel in the decor AND by making many walls garage doors that open.)

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…
