25th New BannerFor our family, we are in the midst of birthday season.  From mid-October to mid-November, four out of the six people in my immediate family have birthdays.  Plus, my uncle, sister and mother-in-law have birthdays as well, along with my niece just days later.  Next week we are adding a new niece or nephew to our crew (I am SO excited about that!), so our times to gather together for birthday parties just keep increasing.  Lots of cake and celebrations for us this month!

Our family is not the only ones celebrating right now.  On Sunday November 8th, the Lincoln Children’s Museum is recognizing their TWENTY-FIFTH birthday.  For the past quarter of a century, they have been enriching the lives of children and families from Lincoln, Nebraska and beyond.  What better way to honor this anniversary than by having a giant party?  By clicking on the link , you can find out all about the planned activities that include exhibits from other local kid friendly places as well as performances by kids in music and theater.

At the party, they will be revealing their two newest exhibits: “The Grow Zone” for toddlers and young preschoolers as well as the “Cuckoo Construction” area which I have a feeling will be delighting kids of all ages.  Later on this week, I will be sharing pictures of the completed exhibits.  My children are looking forward to previewing these new exhibits and giving their “expert” opinions.  If you cannot make it to the party on Sunday for your own preview, I highly recommend visiting the Lincoln Children’s Museum soon.

Not currently a member?  Guess what?  I can help with that!  In honor of their 25th birthday, the Museum has chosen to give away twenty-five memberships.  Last Friday I was asked if I would be willing to give one away on this blog.  As if there was any need to question!!!!! I am super excited to announce that one of my readers will win their own family membership (a $78 value) simply by commenting below.  If you are already happen to be a member, this still applies to you because this gift would be applied as a “free” renewal.  Simply tell what part of the museum your family enjoys experiencing the most OR which of the new exhibits that you cannot wait to explore.  I will announce the winner early Saturday afternoon so that if the winners do not already have a family membership that they can “join” just in time to enjoy the party.   This is too great of a party to keep to yourself – please invite your friends to enter too!

Note: while one reader will receive a membership, I personally did not receive any monetary compensation from this post, although my family does get to visit for a complimentary sneak peak!
