Here are a few highlights for the week ahead! Don’t forget to also take a moment to enter to win two passes to Jump! in Gig Harbor. I’ll be announcing the winner Monday morning.
I updated the bouncy house list and the indoor playground list last week. You can find both, plus South Sound malls with play areas, under Rainy Day Play. I also have the 2011 pumpkin patch list in the menu bar, if you’re up for outdoor adventures.
Remember: These are just highlights, but I’m always happy to list your family friendly event! Just drop me a line!
