Summer’s Last Weekend.

If you’re looking for something fun to do with your family this LAST weekend of summer, look no more and take advantage of this deal for Como Town.


For $26.95, you can get two UNLIMITED wristbands for a whole day of fun! You guys, these wrist bands NEVER expire! So even if you can’t get there before the end of September when they close up shop for the year, you can save them for next summer. They also make a GREAT gift for birthdays? Christmas? you name it!


We may have stocked up because it’s a great deal for a family fun day.

I took the kids last Wednesday and we had the best time.

Como Town has rides and attractions for kids ages 2-12. With a really fun playground and splash pad and even a train mom or dad can ride along, even little ones younger than 2 can have fun.

It’s connected to Como Zoo so you can truly make a day out of the visit. See some animals, grab an ice cream treat and then spend the afternoon riding and playing. Your kids will sleep the whole way home.

The $26.95 deal includes TWO wristbands and the wristbands are good for one day of UNLIMITED rides and attractions and each one includes one ride on the SOARING EAGLE zipline and your choice between either face painting OR water wars.

Como Town is open 10-7 this entire weekend and Saturdays through September and 10-6 Sundays through September.

Also, even though my in-laws own a bakery, sometimes we cheat on them and visit Wuollet’s. Because chocolate croissants. Need I say more?


You can buy a certificate worth $30 for just $15 and it’s good through November. Aren’t crisp fall mornings so much better with pastries? I thought so.

What do you have planned for summer’s last weekend?

On Showing Up.


Two weeks ago today my dear friend lost her dad. I was in the drive thru of Dairy Queen, feeding her kids and mine Blizzards for lunch when I got the text. With blurry eyes, I looked in the rear view mirror at her three, precious littles sad for the news they would hear later […]

FamDoo Makes Chores Easy!

With school starting next week the idea of establishing good routines and some sense of order is high on my priority list. While I think I’ll have some extra time and even motivation during the days with the kids all in school aside from F, I know that our afternoons and evenings will be quite […]

On Why I Took My Littles To Virginia Beach

The idea of time fleeting hit me at the beginning of the summer. Already I had seen the shift. The shift that used to be, “Mom, what are we going to do today?” to “Mom, can I play with … today?” You know what I mean? That inevitable time where kids lives and schedules go […]

My Second Stitch Fix

My second Stitch Fix arrived Friday and after my last experience earlier this summer I was really excited. I, once again, made myself try on everything they sent even if it didn’t look like something for me and I was surprised by how “on” the stylists were. Here’s what I got. 1. Market and Spruce […]

Minnesota State Fair Starts TOMORROW!


As hard as it is to believe, it’s already State Fair time around here. When I grew up we went to the Minnesota State Fair every year on Labor Day. We ate cheese curds, drank milk shakes, did the giant slide and walked. A ton. As an adult, my fair attendance has been inconsistent. We […]

On Grace and Flip-Flops.

Miss E and I went on a date this afternoon. I joke about my high on life, unicorn and rainbow dreaming girl and yet I know I need to be more like her. She is giving and grace filled and so very curious, yet she just gets things. We helped with the homeless ministry at […]

On August.

It seems we’ve finally found a summer groove and the back to school letters arrive. Less than a month of summer break yet and I’m a mix of emotions. It took weeks to find order, routine, to make things work around here. We traveled and traveled and traveled some more through July that when I […]
