Hello, Summer

To my fellow mothers/parents about to embark on this journey we call summer vacation…

I hope you find all the rocks in their pockets before they go in the washer.

I hope you triumph over the anti-shoes campaign.

I hope you’re able to get them to bed a handful of times before 9pm and maybe sleep in a couple times (darn you sunlight hours).

I hope you don’t hear the word “bored” TOO much.

Summer camps, classes and vacations can eat up a budget quickly.

Add in the occasional admission to theme parks, zoos, museums, etc.

…That puts us at a little under a small fortune.

But don’t let that ruin the fun! 😉

There’s non-stop FREE fun happening all over Pittsburgh this summer.

Please note: Some events occur over multiple days. If you see an event you’re interested in attending, always check the link for the specific date/time/details/registration. Many of these popular kids events in Pittsburgh fill up quickly so be sure to arrive early . While admission is free, some activities at the events may cost extra.
