Membership – The No-Clutter Gift of Together Time

I 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.

We’ve added a few more options this year, and all memberships have been verified and updated for 2017. November and December are the time to think about memberships, because several places offer pre-holiday or end-of-the-year discounts.

Trust me on this. Read More

Where to Find the Minnesota Farm Babies

As soon as I can smell the wet earth and the sun is still shining at 6pm, I’m ready for a spring farm fix. Come on out and meet the fuzzy new arrivals — lambs, chicks, piglets, goats and all the rest — plus farmhands of all ages can partake in waking up the barns for spring.

I had no idea there were this many places to find Minnesota Farm Babies!
