On this Veteran’s Day, Nov. 11, take a moment to visit one of the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board’s (MPRB) dedicated memorial parks that honor Minnesota and Hennepin County veterans from WWI and WWII.

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.
