Happy September Friends,

Where has the summer gone?  I am so glad that September is here.  The fun of Fall is fast approaching and I can't wait to take in as much of it as possible.  I've included several local family friendly events for this month and I know that there are many more.  If you come across an event that you know we would enjoy, please feel free to share it on my Facebook page.

Have FUN!
