It's Been A While, Girls.

And I apologize.
But I'm back now and ready to have some fun.
So, here's what's going on in the greater Des Moines area.
(By the way, welcome to all the new families - I'm so excited to get to play with you all!)

August 2-6th is Safari Splash at the Des Moines Zoo (from 1 - 4 pm).
They have inflatables water slides, splash pads, free treats and of course - animals.
We went last year.
Fun times.

-Tax free shopping on Aug. 6th and 7th.
-Merle Hay Mall has kid's inflatables and cotton candy on Sat. Aug. 7th from 11 - 3.

This is classic Iowa. A party for air balloons. I love it.
-Balloon flights, live music, arts and crafts shows, fireworks, etc.
Located at Memorial Balloon Field (between 118th and 113th in Indianola.)
(Morning admission is free; evenings are $3 adults/$10 carload.)
Hurry thought, this ends soon!! (July 30th - Aug. 7th)

What's more Iowan than corn?
That's why you should go to the Adel Sweet Corn Festival
(No, I'm not joking. There really is a corn festival. Really.)
-Aug. 13 (5pm - midnight) and Aug. 14 (9:30 am - midnight).

This one is still a little ways off, but there's no harm in getting excited, right?!
You. must. go. here.
Open August 12 - 22.
It's a little pricey, but I can fix that.
Monday - Thursday, 5-10 p.m. is half price! $5 (adults), $2 (ages 6-11)
Also, parking is $10. (Sheesh...) However, they do have busses that shuttle you over from free parking for $2/adult round trip. (This could be the way to go...)

Raccoon River Park. This Saturday. 5:00. Bring food to BBQ, dishes, and a side to share.
See you all there!
