This beautiful 250-acre property is home to over 1,500 animals. Most of them are brought to “The Ark,” by the Department of Natural Resources, zoos, educational institutions, and the general […]

When I was a kid, the Mind Bender at Six Flags was my first major roller coaster, like with loops and stuff. I’m not sure how old I was but I remember being scared to death and I was almost certainly shamed by my sister and brother until I finally relented and got in line. […]
Being a member of a local YMCA brings privileges to visit any YMCA in the Atlanta area. My family has been taking advantage of this member benefit this summer by touring the metro-Atlanta YMCA outdoor pools. Growing up in California, summers were always spent swimming in our pool. Since I was a “water baby” it was important to […]
Y’all. It’s hot as blazes outside. I mean Y’ALL: it’s stupid hot. And don’t even get me started on the humidity (ugh…). So what’s a mama to do when these little people you made are all stir crazy and your only outside options are 1. The pool (again…) or 2. A trip to the ER after […]
The Marietta Museum of History announces tours for the smallest of visitors. Based on programs by the Smithsonian Institute’s Early Enrichment Center, tours will be offered to toddlers from age 3 to 5 and their parents. Different topics will be offered on the second Wednesday of every month at 10:30 a.m. and the cost is $5 per family (one adult and up to three children), additional adults and children are $5 each.
The purpose of the tours is to introduce toddlers to history through very basic concepts like shapes, sounds, games, tools and jobs. Museum Mascots Murray and Etta are whimsical cartoon mice that will help convey the themes for the tours and provide a little fun. The tours will offer a variety of activities including story time and crafts.
We require that you reserve a spot for your toddler by calling our office Monday-Friday from 10-4 at 770-794-5710. Reserving a spot will allow the staff to have enough items for the crafts. Thank you.

Do you want a change of scenery from the overly crowded places in Atlanta and the surrounding cities? Well did you know that Athens is the perfect place to bring the kids for some entertainment, good food, and fun atmosphere? Athens has a small town feel even though isn’t far from small. You can grab […]
Summer is officially upon us, and I’m learning quickly that my first summer as a mama of three is no joke. A five-year-old, two-year-old, and nine-month-old make soaking up summertime a wee bit challenging. An activity suitable for one kid is likely not appropriate for another, my two-year-old has the attention span of a house […]
We are so excited to partner with Strive Academics to help us stay on top of academic skills this summer. Summer is a time of fun. The weather is nice and warm, it’s beautiful outside, and kids have fewer obligations to manage during the day. It’s no wonder that everyone tends to indulge a bit more […]
This past weekend the weather was awesome and the kids were getting cabin fever. I’ve been itching to get to the planetarium. I’d been promising myself that I would since I moved here. So, we packed up our kids and their cousins and took a nice Saturday afternoon drive through Atlanta to Fernbank Science Center!! Although […]
