1. Try Something New
Sign your kiddo up for a FREE Beginning KARATE Workshop for KIDS! Children 5 to 12 Years Old followed by PIZZA PARTY in Oakdale or stop by the Anime Club in Sewickley. Have a kid with happy feet? Take them to the Community Square Dance Party 💃🏽 tonight!
2. Get the Family Outside!
Last week my little man and I went riding on the Montour Trail. It was so nice to breathe in the cool air and see all the leaves starting to (slowly) turn. Later in the week we hit up Goodwill, and he snagged a pair of rollerblades that happened to be his size. We have been practicing in the driveway, but plan to get him on the trail in his blades too! In addition to getting out on wheels, we had an awesome park day and plan to pack as many in as we can before we're stuck in the house for the winter. We are working on our Parks Guide and we'd love your input on your family favorite! Email me at email@example.com with your favorite local parks, mama tips, photos, you name it!
3. Take Me Out to the Ballgame with Pittsburgh RADical Days
Pittsburgh RADical days are happening all month long, offering fun experiences for you and your family at no cost. This week you can find RADical Days at Heinz History Center, ⚾️ RADical Days Tours at PNC Park, and 🦉 RADical Days Owl Prowls at Audubon Society
This week my son has a field trip to Trax Farms where we'll get to take a hayride a do ALL the fall things! It will be our first pumpkin patch of the year and I think we are both pretty excited about it. So, I was on Facebook this week and came across the cutest little funeral home (yes I just used cutest and funeral home in the same sentence) reimagined into a community and event space called Envisioned Environments. It's on Woodward Ave in McKees Rocks and the owners are offering a 🎃 Pumpkin Patch & Farmers Market Thursday nights from 3-7 and their Flea Market on Sundays from 10-2. I'm putting it on my bucket list too!
Speaking of bucket lists - have you printed yours yet? Our ABC 'Burgh Fall Bucket List has been our top hit all week!
