Colorado Grown Festival This Saturday at Pioneers Museum

The Colorado Grown Festival will be held at the Colorado Springs Pioneers Museum this Saturday, July 30th, from 10 AM to 2 PM.  Activities include live music, interactive farm animal exhibits, crafts, and more.  There are some workshops that have a fee (children 12 and under are free with a paid adult), but it looks like they’ll have quite a few free things, too.  And of course you can tour the museum!   See all the events for the day on the Pioneers Museum website.

Final Days To Claim Your Reading Program Prizes!

Just a reminder that your kids have until the end of this month to finish up the reading program at Pikes Peak Library District and claim their prize!  Why Not Books? program also ends August 1st, while a couple of the others have longer deadlines.  You can find more about all of the summer reading programs here.

We redeemed our free book coupons at Once Upon a Child last week and they let us choose five books, not just one!  They definitely had a bigger selection of books than in years past.
