Rock Ledge Ranch is offering free admission this Saturday, October 1st, for their annual Harvest Festival! During this event, you can tour the historic homestead and take a wagon ride, hear live music, participate in a candy scramble, and more. Most of the activities do require a fee, so you may want to bring some cash to pay for those types of things. (It’s been awhile since I’ve been, but last time we were there it was cash only for those type of things.) Visit Rock Ledge Ranch’s site for all of the information.

I was at the King Soopers at Stetson Hills the other day and they’re working on a new area upfront for grocery pickup, for which I say finally! I’ve been waiting for this to come to King Soopers ever since I started using Sam’s Club’s Click n’ Pull. King Soopers has been testing it out in the Denver area for quite awhile, and I’m excited to know that it’s finally coming here (at some point; I haven’t heard any dates).
The best part is that unlike Sam’s Club, they bring your groceries to your car which is so much more convenient when you have kiddos! (Walmart’s grocery pickup does this, too.) My biggest hesitation is the time it may take to go over my order and make sure they got everything, but it’s still got to be better than shopping. If only they had a grocery put-away service…
I have a friend who uses Walmart’s grocery pickup and loves it. I almost never shop there and just haven’t taken the plunge to try it out, but I’m definitely going to when it comes to King Soopers! How about you?
