Kidriffic Weekend Events For May 17 – 19 2013

Ack! I know I’ve been MIA, but with Mother’s Day comes a whole lot of baggage for me and, well, that’s a whole ‘nother story. I just may tell it in the coming days.

This weekend calls for, ugh, THUNDERSTORMS. So here’s a list of things you can do with your kiddos INSIDE (ok ok, and a couple of things outside too) this weekend!

Okay honestly, I think Meerkats are the cutest little wild things and what’s better than seeing them in 3D??? And why not check out the Real Pirates exhibit while you’re there?

I love the Playseum because it’s great for all kids. Have a manicure, make a cupcake, or just have fun going from room to room dressing up like a princess or reading a book.
