6 Twin Cities Metro-Area Minnesota State Parks

Minnesota State Parks

In 2003, mere weeks from our wedding date, my future husband and I picked up a Minnesota State Parks Passport Club kit from one of the park nature shops. What a wonderful way to step off on our life together, I recall thinking, by flitting around Minnesota exploring all 70+ state parks and recreation areas. Get your passport stamped at each one and receive — along with bragging rights, of course — a personalized commemorative plaque. Oh, I could see that plaque right then, hanging on some future living room wall. Read More

Cooking With Kids in the Twin Cities

cooking classesI have a 10 year old daughter who–more than anything–loves cooking.  I, personally, am not a fantastic cook or  teacher.

My girls in particular love to cook with their Aunt Ruhama and their Grandpa Kordatzky.  Unfortunately, both these willing chefs live in Deep Wisconsin (extreme south and extreme east).

So the fact that there are schools for chefs-in-the-making here in the Twin Cities makes me so incredibly happy.

 


Thanks to our sponsor The Kids Cooking School. Tiffany Cavegn has opened the perfect shop for kids to learn to cook.  With a spunky and knowledgeable teacher, any kid will learn how to cook a  3-course meal.

Family Day Trip: National Eagle Center, Wabasha

We were blessed with gorgeous weather for a long weekend camping trip along scenic Highway 61. The first thing we did upon tumbling out of the camper in Wabasha, Minnesota, was spend a good fifteen minutes soaking up the sun along the Mississippi. It’s along these banks that majestic bald eagles winter and build nests to raise their young. You can learn all about these raptors – and get just about nose-to-beak with them – at the adjacent National Eagle Center. Read More

Celebrate Women in Science with Bakken Museum

“Girls need to know that there is room for them in this space,” Gaby Ruiz-Colon, biologist.

It’s not a secret that FFTC loves The Bakken Museum.  We love how it incorporates science, engineering, the arts, nature, and discovery.  It’s everything we love all in one cool mansion that Earl Bakken purchased to house all his artifacts.

It’s so cool.

Have I mentioned that yet? Another thing we love is how they support women in science.
