Rainy Day Fun: Storytimes and Tot Lots

We’re glad that Spring is finally here, but it seems like most of our days lately have been rainy. There are only so many times that you can play Candy Land before both the kiddos and mama are going stir-crazy! So we want to share some of the storytimes and tot lots that are going on in the area to give you some opportunities to get out of the house, and maybe even meet some other mamas! This list is by no means exhaustive…click on the rec center and library names to connect to their websites, where you can find info about all the amazing programs you can take part in!
