Hello Smarties! Well we are off to a cold start in the New Year and slowly but surely activities are beginning to pick up. If you are up to venturing out into the cold there are several things to enjoy from Boogie Woogie Books to reptiles at Repticon. The children and I have also seen two great kids movies over the past couple of weeks that I recommend – “The Princess and the Frog” and “Alvin and the Chipmunks, The Squeakquel”. The key is to enjoy time with the family so get out and enjoy!
