Did you know that April 22-26 is National Park Week? 

During this week, you can take advantage of free admission to U.S. national parks that usually charge entrance fees. Isn't that a great excuse to go on an outdoor adventure with your kids?

According to the National Park Service Website "In addition to free admission to all American national parks on Fee-Free Days, many national park-related businesses and destinations offer special discounts and added value promotions on Fee-Free Days."

"Children are born naturalists.  They explore the world with all of their senses, experiment in the environment, and communicate their discoveries to those around them."

National Library Week: April 14-20, 2013


Did you know it's National Library Week?  Yes, this week we are honoring libraries across the country by celebrating their contributions to society and promoting library use.
If you've ever read my post Ten Reasons Why Your Local Library is the Perfect Place for Local Fun, you know I'm a fan of our local library. When my kids were babies and toddlers, we were always at our local library. They have many age appropriate programs with books, crafts, music and play time. It's a great place to socialize with other local moms, and get your kids out of the house.
This week, head over to your library to see what's new and take part in the celebration!
