Family Fun Days: Attainable & Doable Ideas

Family Fun Days are like a holiday around here, and we try to schedule them about once every other month. I won’t lie, when the day actually rolls around, it is typically referred to as FORCED Family Fun Day. What seems like a fun, simple outing can often be complicated by the personalities in the vehicle and the moods of the moments. It is safe to say that we haven’t been on a single Family Fun Day without tears from someone (adults included!).  See some of our favorite Family Fun Days below. APPLE ORCHARD/ WINERY: A WINNING COMBINATION We love...

Fall Is In The Air…

Fall is in the air, and I have been itching to get outside and switch our yard from summer to fall. That means, warm colored mums, potted plants, scarecrows, and pumpkins. All things that are loved by children and parents alike! A new addition to the garden this year is a beautiful Solar Wind Spinner, that I have already gotten several compliments on. This wind spinner is a perfect accent piece to any garden, and a great decorative add-on to any yard. Although the singular solar light bulb certainly won’t be lighting up an entire walkway, it does produce multi-changing...

Our Annual Pilgrimage to Minnesota’s Largest Candy Store

Summer has come and gone, and of all of the remaining items on our bucket list that have gone unchecked, none made us more sad than the inability to get to Minnesota’s Largest Candy Store. Much to our childrens’ liking, we saved the best for last! We spent our Labor Day roaming the rows of sugary goodness with hundreds of strangers on a similar mission. The Mojitos & Munchkins family conquered Minnesota’s Largest Candy Store, and we did so in style! Follow the Yellow Wood Gate Long before you get to the building itself, you’ll see a BRIGHT yellow fence. This...

Mid-Summer Reflection

Summer is in full swing – and, as always, threatening to come and go MUCH faster than we would prefer. The Mojitos & Munchkins crew has had a busy – but exciting – few months of summer so far. Check out seven of our highlights! The Start of Summer Gone are the days of early morning rising, running to catch the school bus, and math homework at nights. Also gone are the days of schedules and time management, activities and running amuck. This summer, our goal has been to RELAX and BREATHE. We have tried *VERY* hard to stick to a...

Review:: The Bug Bite Thing

This tiny, easy-to-pack, simple-to-use, summer accessory is arguably our new FAVORITE thing! When you live in Minnesota (a.k.a The land of 10,000 mosquitos), you begin associating summer months with big red scratchy welts on your body. We’ve accepted it as the way it is, but it doesn’t mean we have to like it. Up until this summer, I was slathering questionable ingredients all over my children’s’ bodies to try and ease the pain and discomfort that comes with bug bites. After being introduced to The Bug Thing, those days are gone. Now, only a quick 30 seconds stand between the...
