Weekly Wanderings

Lots to do, with nary a Christmas carol in the mix. Until next Friday, that is...

DENVER-

Denver Museum of Nature and Science- If you have not taken your kids here, then the free days next week are your perfect excuse to go. If you want to avoid the crowds, this week is perfect, however. I love love love this museum- my kids and I can find something new everytime. Experiments involving the human body, walking through dinosaur eras, rock and gemstone exhibits, IMAX films, acres of dioramas, and rotating special exhibits- it is all here. http://www.dmns.org/

Oh Em Gee. Twilight- Breaking Dawn Part Two- Not kid-appropriate, obviously, but let's be honest, you are probably Team Edward or Team Jacob. You have probably read the books, and want to see how the movie goes. It comes out at 12:01 AM, November 16th. Crowds of females, interspersed with a few smart males, promise to descend. I will probabyl be among them. I have a fourteen year old freshman- don't judge me ;-) fandango.com

Storytime at Tattered Cover- Tattered Cover is a gem in the community, bringing in treasured authors and putting on community events. Rosemary Wells (Max and Ruby fame) will be at the Highlands Ranch for a storytime, which should be a treat for kids and adults alike. http://www.tatteredcover.com/event/special-meet-author-storytime-rosemary-wells-max-max-ruby-storybook-max-ruby%E2%80%99s-treasure-hunt

Denver Public Library- When there is a slow week as far as events to do, don't forget your library. Libraries are an amazing resource that many people overlook. Storytimes, lectures, discussions, films, and so much more- they are all available at your local library :) http://denverlibrary.org/


Colorado Springs- 

Trans-Siberian Orchestra- I know,  I know. Expensive, but what a dream concert to go to. If I could go this would be a great splurge. TSO is music that I oculd get lost in. http://www.worldarena.com/

Snoopy Soars With NASA- Pioneers Mueum kicks off this exhibit with Space Saturdays. Interactive play and learning experiments, Planetarium shows and more, this show runs through 2013. http://www.cspm.org/

Pikes Peak Library District-  Again, if you have not noticed, I am a huge library advocate. Our district has one of the most thriving programs around. Socrates Cafe, small business incubators, snuggle-up story times, Teen events, book clubs, and loads of volunteer opportunities- we have a myriad of things to take part in with our library district. Check the website out; it's a little tedius to search on, but worth the effort! http://www.ppld.org/

No one wants to be subjected to the torture that is my version of "Silent Night" ;-)

Speaking of libraries we have a program starting at ours tomorrow where if you take kids under the age of 5 they give free books and help with early education skills.  I am going to take my youngest I think to check it out!
