Kids Golf for Free!

My kids aren't old enough to golf yet, but if they were, you bet they would be swinging their clubs at Royal St. Patrick's in Wrightstown this summer. Kids play for FREE with a paying adult on weekends at the golf course after 2:30. During the week after 5:30,...

Summer Fun Runs for Kids

There's something about the summer that makes me want to get up and move. Maybe because I'm forced to wear a swimsuit in front of *gasp* actual people at public pools. I guess it's a good thing as exercise is truly important for everyone, no mattter the age. This...

Entertainment Series – Schildt Park

Every night, the hubby (Mr. Go Valley Kids) and I usually give each other the run-down of the next day happenings. I told him I wanted to go see Mr. Billy at Schildt Park last night. His response, "I'm sorry, what did you just say?" Pre-kids, Mr. Billy at Schildt Park sounds puzzling at best.

Get your Bite of June Dairy Month

We Wisconsinites love our cheese. We can’t get enough of it so we wear cheese on our heads during Packer games and fry it into delicious beer-battered cheese curds at every festival around the state. It’s hard to pass up the squeaky sound of fresh cheese curds or the refreshing...

Go Valley Kids’ Summer 2012 Parade Guide

From the drumbeats to the sparkly floats to the tiny Pomeranian driving a truck, it’s hard to find something not to like about parades. It seems like almost yesterday that I was collecting candy in my ice cream bucket at Hilbert’s July 4th parade as a little girl, an annual...

All Aboard! Thomas is chugging into Green Bay.

If you have a train-loving kid at home, you can’t miss this event.  I don’t know what it is about Thomas the Train, but a lot – I mean A LOT – of kids love Thomas. My house is littered with train gear; somehow it managed to seep into...
