What To Do This Weekend - Doors Open

Uggghhhh..... School ....  :-S

I hope you are all getting back into the swing of the school year.... we are trying to adjust! I much prefer the late nights and lazy mornings of summer and I miss the children tons now that they are back! My attempts at developing a routine thus far seem to be in vain - I have spent the last two days running about. So, that is back on the agenda for next week ;-) One routine I am hoping will stick: posting What to Do this Weekend on a weekly basis again now that the summer break is over....that is the goal at least ;-)

This weekend brings Doors Open St. John's when several establishments throughout the City open their doors, free of charge, to visitors. It is a great opportunity to explore that place you have always wanted to see, like The Basilica, Clovelly Stables, the Central Fire Station and many more! See the website for more details and a complete list of participating establishments! 

Also this weekend we have the Family Fun Extravaganza - Big & Small at the Jack Byrne arena. This promises to be fun for he young ones: Big & Small award winning family singer Markus is performing; , Douglas John and Oucho the Monkey from Ants In Your Pants will be there AND after the show kids will have the opportunity to meet Howie from Almost Naked Animals! You need tickets in advance (see link).

There are many other fun family activities on around town! See below for a snapshot (full details can be found in the calendar). And, summer may be drawing to a close, but I will point out that there are still many playdates and playgroups for pre-schoolers and their caregivers! Why not check out the Family and Child Care Connections drop-in playgroups; Active Start program at the NL Sports Plex; St. John's Kid Hava Java Playdate or the Playdate in the Park with Oh The Joys of Discovery Toys? They offer great opportunities for your younger children to socialize :-) 

Have a great weekend!
