“I am Joy Peters.  I am married to my best friend, Christo.  I am mother to my three favorite kids.  I work a full-time job as a legal secretary while my husband braves the home-front with our children.  After my first child was born, I began keeping a “Family Fun Calendar” — an arsenal of fun activities I could whip out even on weeks we ran out of money before pay day. “

This is the introduction to myself that I wrote when we started this joint venture.  In 2010, when I began blogging with www.freefamilyfun.org, there really wasn’t much out there solely on the topic of Family Fun in the Twin Cities.  There were some couponing websites and each of the various venues has their own websites and e-mail lists, but compiling all of these activities is time consuming and laborious (although for me – fun).  It seemed like the right thing to do to share my fruits.  It also rekindled the bliss I feel when writing.  Little did I know that Gianna  and Anne were starting similar websites around the same time as me.  They had also seen a need.

After about a year of reading and endorsing each other’s websites, we decided to join forces and create a “super blog”.  Attempting to write an all-inclusive blog on your own can be overwhelming and lonely.  Writing with two other phenomenal writers and experienced mothers has been a joy.  I hope our passion comes through in this website and inspires and informs in the way we intended.  As the internet continues to expand and websites come and go as families change and grow, we hope you’ll stick with us for the coming years as we also expand and change and grow along with you.We love feedback — good and constructive.  We love shares.   We love suggestions.  We still read and admire the blogs of the new folks on the block.  Our ultimate goal is to form a mutually supportive community of families who love the Twin Cities and want to get out and enjoy them while their kids are still young!

Let’s have fun!

About the author

Joy Peters

Joy Peters - co-creator and writer for FamilyFunTwinCities.com.

Besides Family Fun Twin Cities, I spend my 9 to 5 at a day job pursuing my weird passion for calendars and organizing things as a legal secretary. When I get home I spend my time with my four kids, 10, 6, 4 and 1. My amazing husband is both a full-time musician and full-time stay-at-home dad. Together we run a small radio empire — SiaNet Radio — playing, promoting and enjoying the wide variety of local music and art in the Twin Cities. I juggle all this while writing about exploring the Twin Cities with kids. I couldn’t be happier.
