The Farmstead on Groupon today! Save 50% off one admission

A couple of weeks ago my kids started asking when we could go to that "one place."
"What one place?"
"That one place with the corn maze and the slides and the pig races and those peddle carts and those corn kernels etc.  You know....that one place."
"Oh, the Farmstead!"
If you love the Farmstead as much as we do, you will love this sweet deal on Groupons.  It's half off one admission ticket.  So you save $5 by buying one admission ticket now, then print off your coupon, and bring it with you.  It's super easy.
But you only have until midnight tonight (Wednesday) to buy your groupon.  Here's the link.  And if you've never been to the Farmstead you can read our review by clicking on "Farmstead" under the "Labels" column on the left hand side.

Have you ever been to Bounce?  It's so fun.  I took the kids there a couple of weeks ago.  They loved it.  I hope to follow up with pictures and details about our experience at Bounce but I only have two seconds on the computer until one of the kids needs me to put them to bed.  I couldn't let the day end without telling you about the amazing deal for half off Bounce admission on Groupons today.  There's only three hours left.

Glowing balloons provide family fun and cool photo op

Who doesn't love hot air balloons?  I remember one year my neighbor's uncle landed his hot air balloon right in our neighborhood park.  It was so spectacular that I ran home and grabbed my camera and by the time I got back the girl and my neighbor's uncle were in the basket and 50 feet in the air.  Now I was really glad I had my camera.

If you love looking at hot air balloons check out Boise's hot air balloon festival this weekend.  A community pancake breakfast will be held on Saturday morning at 7 am at Ann Morrison park so you can eat and watch the balloons lift off at the same time.  And don't be late because there's no point in getting there at 9.  The balloons and the pancakes will be gone.

After the morning lift off on Saturday you can return that evening at 6:30 pm for food vendors, live music, and glowing balloons.  Some say that the glowing balloons are "one of the coolest photo opportunities of all time."

If you can't make it on Saturday they will lift off again at Ann Morrison park on Sunday at 7:10 am.   Here's a link for more info on what's being called the 2010 Spirit of Boise Balloon Classic.
