Before it became a Hollywood blockbuster, A Wrinkle in Time was a classic YA novel about three kids who teleport across space in search of their scientist father. Now, Madeleine L’Engle’s Newbery Medal-winning tale comes to the stage in a new play from Lyric Arts in Anoka. Join Meg, Charles and Calvin as they set off with Mrs. Whatsit, Mrs. Who and Mrs. Which to rescue their father from The IT, an evil being trying to take over the universe! Together they’ll prove that love can overcome evil. Don’t miss this imaginative family adventure as it comes to life on stage.

The heart and soul of Great Wolf Lodge Bloomington is its 75,000-square-foot indoor water park. Splashy rides such as River Canyon Run—a four-story raft water slide—and a zero-depth-entry wave pool with 3-foot swells surround the park’s iconic hub: a four-story treehouse with a 1,000-gallon tipping bucket. Younger kids will have a blast with the gentle spray features of Cub Paw Pool.

The water park, which hovers around 84 degrees all year long, isn’t the resort’s only family-friendly activity. You’ll also find an arcade with more than 100 games and Scooops Boutique, where visitors can get fun nail polish and glitter tattoos.

  • Extended and exclusive water park access: You can enter the water park at 1 pm on the day you check in and stay until close on the day you check out (essentially 2 days’ water park admission). And since there are no day passes for outside visitors, resort guests have exclusive access and won’t get stuck in long lines.
  • Family-friendly fun: The resort has games and activities for kids of all ages. Explore options by age group here.
  • Hands-on crafts and activities such as face painting and balloon twisting during the Lunch Time Lineup can keep kids entertained when they want a break from the water park action.
  • Roomy suites comfortably sleep up to six guests. Some suites offer extra privacy with enclosed bunk beds.
  • Fuel up with food and drinks at eight restaurants and snack bars.
  • Add a Paw Pass or Pup Pass to your stay to enjoy kid-friendly activities and sweets at Creation Station, Oliver’s Mining Co., and more at a discounted rate. See everything that’s included—as well as other available packages—here (additional fees apply).
  • Safety first: Complimentary life jackets in multiple sizes and trained lifeguards help keep families safe and secure.
  • Distance from Minneapolis: 10 miles

Great Wolf Adventure Park

Besides the water park, don’t forget that there is plenty of dry fun, too! Great Wolf Adventure Park is filled with activities and experiences that are fun for the whole family. There are lots of active experiences to work off that never-ending kid energy and ways for them to put their thinking caps on, too. Check out our crew’s experience with Great Wolf Adventure Park in Bloomington to see what they have to offer!

Richfield Outdoor Pool

The Richfield Outdoor Pool has been cooling off its swimmers since 1961. The pool stretches 50 meters, inviting customers to swim laps in the two 25-yard lap lanes, play a few bouts of water volleyball, or reenact the adventures of the Venetian merchant traveler Marco Polo. There’s even a diving board and a double water slide. And the main pool is just one of the highlights. A children’s wading pool with a zero-depth entry awaits youngsters, and a concession stand complete with umbrella-covered tables gives folks a place to refuel.

The pool will be open June 8 – August 26, 2018. Infants under 1 year are free. You can pick up your pass and tote from May 29 – June 7. Get your Groupon HERE!

Save 50% on Lindt Chocolate at Mall of America or Eagan Outlets!

Lindt Chocolate Mall of America

Who else loves Lindt chocolate as much as I do? The dark chocolate truffles are my favorite. My mom put them in our Easter baskets this year (yes, my nice Mom still makes baskets for us “grown ups”) and we were joking about how we call them “Lindt Balls”, which sounds like something that comes out of your dryer – – not delicious chocolate.

Anyway, if you’re a fan or if you know someone who is a fan and want to get them a great gift, now is your chance to do it at half off. Score this Groupon deal to get $30 to Spend on Chocolate at Lindt Chocolate Shops for only $15! It can be used at the shop at Mall of America or Twin Cities Premium Outlets in Eagan.
