Editor's Note - July 11th

Welcome Back Macaroni Parents    I am just realizing that we are now less than a month away from the start of the school year. How can this be? The summer has moved a little too fast although I'm sure by the first day of school I will be ready to send the kids back, ha. But for now, I will stress about the uniforms, supplies, fees, shoes, and whatever else they need to begin again. And of course, I am worried about packing the family fun to fill their memory banks!

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!
