About Me

A fun-loving Mom looking to enrich my child's early years.

Hey!  I’m Cheryl.  I’m so glad you’ve found this little corner of the Internet.

My oldest daughter entered the world in 2012 – it was blissful, but lonely, and at times, frankly, boring.  I struggled with the transition from being solely career-oriented to becoming a mommy.  I yearned to get out of the house and I desperately craved adult conversation.  During the first year of motherhood I realized that there are lots fun things to do in our community but tracking them down can be cumbersome.

Thus, the idea for Kids in the Ridge was born.

My goals are:
To make planning easier for Mommies and Daddies in the Ridge.
For Families in the Ridge to be able to create quality memories, and to share in new adventures together.
For Kids in the Ridge to get outside more, to make new friends, and to learn new skills.
To encourage a community where families support one another, and where new families are welcomed with open arms.
To support local farmers, crafters and businesses and showcase the Best of the Ridge.

My family and I have set out to describe and review playgrounds, natural spaces, indoor play places, attractions, and businesses as we experience them.  We also keep up with local and regional events that may be of interest to our readers.

We hope that Kids in the Ridge enables you to discover all that our community has to offer.

If you have a suggestion for a location we should visit, you’d like to inform us of an upcoming event, or you’d like to advertise on our page, please leave a comment or fill out the contact form below.  We love to hear from our readers
