I’m always on the lookout for activities that my teenage kids can enjoy with their friends–I mean, a person can only hang out at the mall so much before it gets boring.

I was combing through all my old recipes a few days ago,and in the piles of handwritten scrap papers and magazine cut outs, I found a piece of torn notebook paper with driving directions scribbled on it.

We’ve loved the Denver Art Museum for many years–there’s always something new to see, and with make-it-yourself art stations and family backpacks full of activities, there is so much for families and kids to do and explore!  So we were very excited to learn today that through the generosity of Scott Reiman and Kaiser Permanente,...

Minecraft. Oh how I love you. You entertain my children for hours. You teach them about coding, building, cause and effect and how to deal with their emotions when a creeper comes and destroys their sheep farm. My boys have been addicted for years. Pretty much since the game’s release in 2011. My teen was an early adopter and even was given...
