Expanded Children’s Museum of Denver Grand Reopening

We’ve been in the Denver area for exactly a year now and have been slowly going through our ‘need to visit’ bucket list. The Children’s Museum of Denver is near the top of that list and every time we drive by the boys yell we need to go!

I’m excited to announce that they have six new exhibits and have expanded their building. The Grand Reopening is on Friday, November 20th so mark your calendars! I will get a chance to visit before then and report back to you.

Play, Learn, Grow Play and learn together at the Children’s Museum of Denver! Every visit is different than the last with changing monthly themes, daily educational programming and interactive exhibits. Explore fun-filled months like Messin’ Around, Wild West, Blast to the Past and Winter Wonderland and discover programs like Backyard Explorers, Super Science Sunday, StoryTime and more!

Have you visited the Children’s Museum of Denver before?

I partnered with USFamily Guide and the Children’s Museum in exchange for tickets for my family.


The Spotted Horse Tavern & Dining Parlor at Evangeline Downs

Just last week I was chatting about travel bucket lists. Wouldn’t it be great to say you’ve been to every state in your lifetime? And I don’t just mean layovers at the airport or driving through without stopping. At least enjoying some of our countries’ sites?

Louisiana is definitely a state I’d like to see. New Orleans or Baton Rouge are the first big cities that come to mind, but how about Lafayette? Today I want to share with you a restaurant with a new debut – The Spotted Horse which you can find at the Evangeline Downs Racetrack Casino Hotel.

Inspired by an urban legend of a “long-necked spotted horse” (i.e., a giraffe) winning the race by a neck, the restaurant’s flair for the fantastic is reflected throughout the new space. The multi-faceted experience features a tavern on one side, perfect for sipping a local brew and enjoying down-home cuisine; and a full-service restaurant on the other.

You’ll find dining selections range from Southern staples to innovative new dishes. The restaurant’s signature whimsy shines in the collection of hot sauces. A menu of nearly 20 hot sauces is available for customers to pair with their dishes, including ghost pepper and blueberry, habanero carrot curry, and serrano ginger lemongrass. oh my!

If you’re like my family, FOOD is always first on our list and we love visiting new places to see what they have to offer.
