Kidriffic Events for June 15-16, 2013

I haven’t been paying these lately and I’m sorry. My laptop at home isn’t working, so I just said forget it. However, someone asked me why I don’t do them anymore and I felt bad, so now I’m posting from my phone! The format may look whacky, but hopefully the events are useful. It’s supposed to be a gorgeous weekend. Unfortunately this weekend will find me stuck inside…painting!
