Kids & Moving – Part 1

[ 1 ] November 7, 2016 |
What to consider in your next home (if you have young kids – like I do)

As I write, I am a working mom and wife in her mid-30s. I have two sons (or three, if you count my truly wonderful husband?) – one in elementary school and one in preschool, and a career in real estate that started nearly 13 years ago. Because I’m a mother, I know the incredible joy our children can bring; and, because I’m a mother, I know the incredible challenges that can result from those same children. If you happen to be in a similar situation/stage of life, it’s likely you, like me, are looking for ways to make your life just a bit easier. If so, and if you’ve been considering a move – this is for you!

I ♥ Traffic

[ 0 ] October 7, 2016 |

 

Nobody likes a complainer – especially when the person doing the complaining lives in an area filled with beautiful parks & open space, well-manicured trails, nice people, friendly dogs and only well-behaved kids. I don’t want to be the complainer responsible for so much eye rolling, but seriously, am I the only one frustrated with traffic that is only exacerbated by the many, many miles of road construction/improvement? I suspect not. Read More

Lee Martinez Park

Just north of Old Town, Lee Martinez Park is an entertaining spot in Fort Collins. Just hop on your bikes and take the Poudre Trail right to the park. The playground is pretty small and often not that busy, but there’s plenty for the kids to do on the slides, swings, teeter totters and monkey bars. You’ll find lots of shade throughout the park from all the large trees as well as picnic shelters. Picnic tables set up around the playground which makes it easy on parents to watch the kids. There is fun for adults too with the 4 tennis courts, softball fields and it’s surrounded by walking trails.

What makes this park different from others in town is  The Farm right next to it. The Farm is almost like a small interactive zoo. They have sheep & goats for kids to feed; pigs, cows, horses, chickens to check out, and they offer fun activities like pony rides and hayrides. Kids can explore the barns, outbuildings, climb on farm equipment and learn a thing or two about agriculture. The Farm holds special events like Treatsylvania every Halloween, a safe place for kids under 10 to trick or treat and they have other programs like the ‘Pony Club’ and ‘Adopt An Animal.’

If your kids like more water features to cool off in the heat of the summer, this isn’t the park for that, but those are easy to find around Fort Collins. Check out  Spring Canyon Community Park or head to Oak Street Plaza and/or The Square in Old Town for some water fountain play. We are lucky to live in a community like Fort Collins with lots of activities for all ages!
