Editor's Note - July 18th

Welcome Back Macaroni Parents    These daily summer showers are beginning to drive me batty. I rather it rain all day or not rain at all. Not this midday scary thunderstorm and then sunshine. I feel as though this temperamental weather is making me temperamental, ha. 

If your child didn't bring home a summer rack card from us in their folder, you can download one here. It has a summer fun checklist on the front and deals with local businesses on the back. 

Be sure to bookmark our daily calendar so you never miss out on local family fun!

We are always open to feedback! If you want to share a thought or want with us please email

We get asked by parents ALL of the time for new ideas when it comes to planning birthday parties. This is why it was a no-brainer to put together our Birthday Party Planning Guide. Check it out by clicking here to find venues, entertainment, desserts, and local gifts! 

We love feedback! If you want to share an idea, an event, or an opportunity please reach out at 

Have a great week entertaining, stimulating, and exhausting your kids!
