Week of 1/31 *** In construction-check back this evening! Thanks, Maegen
Here are my picks for fun this week! Don’t see something that will appeal to your crowd? Use the menu bar or search the archives for more. If you have older children, most area organizations are registering for baseball and t-ball now. Contact one near you, if you’re interested. If your daughter would like to attend a daddy/daughter dance, some of those have already filled, so don’t wait much longer. You can read my whole post here.
Story times have resumed at Pierce County Libraries. Every library has multiple story time events this week. Select the date you want on the calendar and find a story session at a library near you! Note that other PCL library links in this post are pdf flyers..
