Gianna’s First Year Favorite Finds: Our Team

We talk a lot about being a team on Family Fun Twin Cities.  I think that’s because we are so happy to be working together.

We have been blessed to work together for many reasons.  But the biggest one for me is because where one of us may have fallen a little short, another wanted that responsibility anyway. Read More

Children’s Library Corner: Hickory by Palmer Brown

If you loved Abel’s Island by William Steig or Stuart Little by E.B. White, then you need to try Hickory by Palmer Brown!

We are welcoming back Ruhama for another edition of Children’s Library Corner.  I love her choices for you to check out.  Sometimes the books she chooses may be out of print, so walk–no, run–to your nearest library to find these hidden treasures. In the case of her choice this month, I know you can get it at Red Balloon Bookshop and Wild Rumpus. Especially with the Minnesota (and Wisconsin) temperatures starting to drop, this is the perfect time to start stocking up on great literature!

Summertime Together: Hyland Play Area a/k/a Chutes & Ladders Park

Nature Reserves, like Hyland Lake Park Reserve, that focus on the woods and lakes and streams and meadows make me smile. Making up an adventure world full of princesses and ogres or rescue missions from the caves. Playing in nature is the best playground. However, there are times when you can’t replace the fun of a slide or a swing.  Again an adventure world can be be created across the bridges and ramps. That’s why we love Hyland Play Area.

The Three Rivers Park District offers many different experiences from nature trails and beaches to wooded shorelines and working farms. It offers live history and art.  It also offers playgrounds. And really good ones at that. In the month of August, we wanted to let you know about a few that we have experienced.

Starting In the South Metro – Hyland Lake Park Reserve

Located in West Bloomington is Hyland Lake Park Reserve of the Three Rivers Park District. Winding your way long East Bush Lake Road through a maze of lakes and wetlands, you end up ending the area affectionately called Chutes and Ladders.
Hyland Lake Park Reserve Play Area

It is a gigantic play structure built up the side of a large hill full of climbing equipment, cargo nets, and slides: resembling the iconic board games Chutes and Ladders. This place is a hot spot for parents in the South Metro.  It’s just a few miles off 494 and fairly simple for anyone to find.  Even for me from the North Metro.
