This was our weekend:
A pancake breakfast for the Lion’s Club, the PTA Easter Egg Hunt and the bake sale, the Winter Farmer’s Market in Concord (Fresh eggs and Apples yum!), and a birthday party for one of my son’s classmates. The neighbors had asked us to stop by, so we meandered across the street for a “quick” visit. Two hours and two tired kids later, it was time to go home. 8pm is too late for steak tips, so Lucky Charms and frozen pizza it is!
Sunday brought a trip to visit the Mudgett Hill Mumbling Maplers and their annual fundraiser for Make A Wish. A gallon of syrup, some raffle tickets, 4 maple whoopie pies and we were on our way home for a brief stop before I took my son to another birthday party.
After the party, it was home again. A little family time, dinner, tubs and bed.
Crazy? Oh yeah, but other than the birthday parties, it was all optional and yet, I wouldn’t have wanted to miss a single activity. One of the things that I most treasure about living here is the active community. Parents work hard to support the school and citizens volunteer their time to make the world a better place. I can’t think of a better place to call home.
What are some of the “can’t miss” activities in your community?
