These past few months have been a super exciting one. I can't stop chattering about what is happening. I'm literally flitting around like an excited little chick. My husband has been laughing at my giddyness.
Here's the news.
I will be moving on.
Twin Cities Family will no longer be current. I am joining forces with two other mamas who blog about family fun in the Twin Cities--Free Family Fun and Tourmoms--to make one awesome website for you to use.
We are thrilled to be offering you more and better information in one fell swoop.
There will be an on-going calendar of recurring events.
There will be the reviews that you have grown to love. There will be the preschool activity lists and the weekend activity lists (that will probably not include Thursdays and Mondays unless it's something amazing!). But all of this will be better because with three of us, we will cover more things and give you a broader perspective. You will get to know two other wonderful moms who love their kids and enjoy getting out with them. Between the three of us, we have 11 kids. ELEVEN! So you know you can trust us. We know when things are great and when things aren't worth it. When the cost is a little too high or a great sacrifice to make.
Now, you may be asking what this awesome site is called... It's easy to remember. It's easy to get to. It's perfect for a busy family. And you will need to stay tuned! I'll be back next week with the big reveal! (if you want to know what is going on inside my brain, feel free to stop on by Sweet Peas & Buddies...to see a picture or two of our kids!)
I have been doing reviews of things around the Twin Cities for a year. And I have been reviewing things that are interesting to me. While I will plan to continue doing things that will interest me, I am wondering if there are things my readers are interested in that you don't have time to explore currently but would like to know more about. If there are, please let me know in the comments. I would love to create an on-going list of things to review and learn about.
Recently checking out Brickmania and the Great Train Expo leaves me with good review material. However, my reviews are on hold again this week until the next great Twin Cities Family project is ready for the big reveal.
I am so excited to tell you all about this stuff. I can't even express it!
