Hey Mama Hey! Like most people, all week I look forward to Friday. That is the day I get to bring you my hand picked events for you and your family for the weekend. I have to warn you, up until now this has been like practice. Summertime Chi is here and Mamas it’s GAME TIME!!! We pay our dues by parenting during our brutal winters. The reward is living in a city that celebrates summer like it’s our birthday. This weekend is the kick off. Festival season is here! Neighborhoods are hosting music in parks. I am here for it all! Catch ObieQ and I in the streets this summer. You can’t miss us. He is the 2yo flying down the street on a scooter. I am the Mama running behind him screaming and trying to catch it on video at the same time!!!
Mama Fresh Pick of the Week:
This is one of my favorite events of the summer. Before I became a Mama, I would gather a group of girlfriends and head to West Town to hear the music, eat and drink my way down Division. It was only two years ago, after I had ObieQ did I even find out there is full area and programming dedicated to families. We are heading there Sunday after church. Petting zoo, bouncy houses and live music….I am clearing our schedule for the rest of the day!
