THINGS TO DO! Weekend of January 11-13, 2019

We are in for a cold weekend! It’ll be a good time to stay inside – either at home or if you are up for some adventuring, there are a ton of indoor activities and events going on this weekend!  

And if this calendar isn’t enough, you can find even more on our Indoor Guide

We have been on our own adventures this last couple of weeks, and I am working on a ton of new material! You can expect a review of a train show and museum, an indoor play place, an addition to our cheap eating with the littles guide (and an update to that as well), and a couple craft ideas! Stay tuned! 

Enjoy the weekend- try and stay warm if you can!
