5 Reasons to Be a Blooma Family

blooma-logoWe were super excited when Blooma invited Family Fun Twin Cities to try a yoga class, specifically a prenatal yoga class.  Don’t get any ideas.  Nobody on the FFTC team is pregnant, but yoga is fun. You don’t have to be pregnant to enjoy it.  So I found a time on my calendar and made my way over to the new Plymouth location they share with yogamn.

Holiday Light Displays

Thanks to the awesome Prairie Lights website for help with this list of Christmas light displays & music shows!

Who knew there were this many holiday light displays out there?

Please, we beg you, personally confirm the details of these light shows before heading out! We always appreciate the feedback if you find any holiday light displays that are no longer happening or know of one we don’t have listed! Read More

Membership – The No-Clutter Gift of Together Time

christmas-guide-banner-shoppingI think, like a lot of parents, I dream of having a home that is more of a cozy little landing pad for our adventures than a storage facility for our stuff. So I have been collecting up ideas for clutter-free gifts of adventure through membership to museums and other fun places.

Hello Grandparents:

If you are an out-of-town grandparent, membership gifts are ideal. Your grandchildren will look forward to your visits so you can enjoy your gift together; plus they will enjoy it with their parents the rest of the year. Furthermore, your children will tell all their friends that you are so much cooler than the grandparents who bought loud, battery-powered, plastic toys that end up in the garbage heap we call a toy box. Trust me on this. Read More
