Monday, February 1, 2016

I've been trying to ignore the Valentine's Day decorations and candy because I hate rushing the holidays (really stores, the day after Christmas?) but now that it's officially February I'm game! There's nothing sweeter than celebrating love with your kids.  I've highlighted a few fun and FREE (or low cost) Valentine's Day themed activities going on this month.  Some items require registration.  Make sure to check the Facebook page for more events!
