There are a million books out there about how to be a parent. Parent to toddlers, parent to teens, how to parent boys, how to parent girls. But is there one that is the gold-standard for how to be a parent to adult kids. This week my daughter graduates high school. That means that both my kids are out of high school and getting to make decisions on their own. How do you hold their hand but let them fall on their own? My son transitioned to this so easily last year – will my daughter do the same? Nothing can be more true than the saying, “The minutes are long but the years are short.”
Bicycle Village. The Big Tent event at the Aurora Bicycle Village is this weekend May 18-19. Find a fantastic bicycle for everyone in the family. But even better, they offer a trade up program. The program allows kids to keep the bicycle sized for them year after year – but when they are ready to move up to the next size bike you can receive 50% of the original purchase price credited to a new one (within two years of purchase).
9Health Fair. Several years ago, my dad discovered he has high blood pressure, thanks to a 9Health Fair. Over 100 communities bring health screenings to their residents. Volunteers organizes the free (or inexpensive) fairs in locations all across the state offering health screenings. To find one near you, visit https://www.9healthfair.
Cherry Creek Total Wellness Expo . The Cherry Creek Total Wellness Expo will take place on Saturday, May 18 at the JW Marriott Denver Cherry Creek to help promote balance, health and harmony in the Mile High City. From 1 p.m. – 4 p.m. this expo will feature information on how “health is the new wealth,” along with demonstrations, product samples, discounts, giveaways and raffles from top Cherry Creek wellness experts, including: Vive Float Studio; Rise Nation; Hydrate IV Bar; Live Love Lash; Stretch Lab; Clean Juice, Sufferfest Beer; SoulCycle Denver; TruFit Athletic Club; and Life Smart.
Noodles & Company. I typically only see great deal with gift card purchases around Christmas. But, Noodles is offering a $5 bonus card for every $25 purchased in gift cards. Between now and June 30 – purchase in-store or online for the bonus card.
Wendy’s 50 cent Frosty. Hello Summer! Wendy’s has dropped the price of their small frosty to just 50 cents! Maybe I won’t feel bad getting one of each, chocolate and vanilla for my daughter – so she can dip her fries in it.
Planet Fitness. Teens 15-18 years old can work out for free this summer at Planet Fitness, with the Teen Summer Challenge. A parent must go with the teen to sign up. But the teen summer membership is free.
Haagen Dazs Free Cone. Free cone day at Haagen Dazs is Tuesday, May 14. Stop in to any one of the five Denver area locations for a free cone from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m.
