Summer in Minnesota is way too short. In August, we begin to bid carefree summer days farewell and prepare for the inevitable chill. As a divorced or separated parent, you should make the most of each day with your kids. These activities will help:

Cat Video Film Festival

On August 8th, CHS Field will come alive with mews and purrs as Twin Cities cat lovers fawn over their favorite feline stars. Bring a blanket and your favorite pair of cat ears — and prepare to marvel at the internet’s most adorable kitties.

Bunker Beach

A hallmark of the northern ‘burbs, Bunker Beach is the best place to keep cool on a muggy summer day. Although the wave pool offers a play area for younger kids, it’s best to visit if your children are already strong swimmers.

Oliver Kelley Farm

Enjoy a blast from the past at the Oliver Kelley Farm in Elk River. This historical attraction brings traditional agriculture to life. Stop by during a themed weekend to learn about pickling, fair food, and more.

Minnesota State Fair

The Great Minnesota Get-Together — the ultimate last hurrah before returning to school. You’ve seen the Grandstand and the Midway dozens of times, but your kids will be disappointed if you don’t introduce them to this beloved tradition. Grab a pail of Sweet Martha’s Cookies, ooh and ah over baby animals in the Miracle of Life, and gaze at the butter sculpture depicting this year’s Princess Kay of the Milky Way.

Finding activities with your kids should be the easy part. Leave the complications of custody and visitation to your family lawyer. Contact the law firm of Barna, Guzy & Steffen, Ltd. today at 763-783-5146 to learn how you can make the most of parenting time in Minnesota.
