Meet Joy, Gianna & Anne

We are three moms – Anne, Gianna, and Joy – each with four kids who want to take advantage of the educational, cultural, and fun family opportunities in the Twin Cities. In April 2013 we joined forces and created a family website together: Family Fun Twin Cities was born. We want to be your one-stop resource for exploring the Twin Cities with kids!

Getting to know Joy Peters

I am a paycheck mom. I spend my 9 to 5 at a day job. So, I want to spend my home time with my four kids and amazing husband. Because I prefer not to drive, I have always been on the search for family events near me, family fun activities both at home and nearby and generally just fun things to do with kids near me. This is how I got started. Then I met Anne and Gianna. We shared the same passion for finding fun activities for kids and families. We decided to work together and Family Fun Twin Cities was born. Check out my avatar above – created by my very-talented teen!

Getting to know Gianna Kordatzky

I an a non-adventurous Adventurer.  I love to travel around the state, country, and world with my family, my friends, and even my kids who are 10, 12, 14, 15. World travels include Mongolia, Korea, China, Thailand, Scotland, and England. When we had little kids, we weren’t able to travel far, so we started exploring the Twin Cities and nature nearby.

What you won’t know by looking at me is that I struggle with anxiety. Part of my FFTC journey is to find the joy as a mom in the midst of my anxiety.

I am a Christian working to listen for racial healing and reconciliation. I love writing, throwing parties, and being with friends. And I also love coffee and books.
