Virginia Beach makes an amazing family trip destination for many thousands of families in the country. Just this year, Virginia Beach has been named the “Best Metro Area for Families” on the East Coast! There are many reasons why moms and dads choose this beach city for their go-to summer getaway!
I have thoroughly enjoyed celebrating National Mom’s Nite Out over the past several years, and this year is no different! #NMNO2016 is May 5, 2016 – just in time to kick off your Mother’s Day weekend in style! Have a movie night with your BFFs, maybe pop in to All Fired Up and make a pretty ceramic keepsake to commemorate this year. Since we know how hard our #RVAMoms work and deserve some “me” time, we’ve put a list together of some local events to pamper that special mom in your life!
As I stated on my Articles & Information page, the Richmond Local tab is relatively new. It is where you will find blog posts about local events I want to attend or have attended, in addition to discussing current events that are going on within our great city. I am hoping to be able to post some really great events for families that are free or inexpensive and living on a shoestring budget like most of the American people seem to be doing these days.
I have to tell you, I am a sucker for zoo field trips of any kind. I am fascinated with being able to see animals from around the world that I would never have an opportunity to see in real life. So when school started in September and I noticed a field trip scheduled for the entire 3rd grade to the Richmond Metro Zoo in November – I was chomping at the bit to sign up as a chaperone for it and go with my mini-man! I think his teacher, Mrs. Magner, probably started to worry back in October when I began bombarding her with emails about the field trip and had the sign up sheets been released yet LOL!
