What’s up with the snow in October? It’s so funny…as I scrolled a bit of social media on Tuesday morning after the kids were in school, adult comments were like, “Ugh, Why?! What’s happening?”, etc…and kids’ comments (parents’ relaying their kids’ comments on social media) were like “WOW! So pretty!” Where’s Santa?”. I have to admit it can be hard to look at life through the eyes of a child (I’m not a fan of October snow either), but when you do, life is so much more magical and joyfull. ❄️

If you reading this on Thursday, then Happy Halloween!! Pardon the snow, while you trick or treat 😉 Too much candy? Don’t forget to sell it to the dentist through the Candy Buy Back program!

If you are reading this on Friday, Happy November! This weekend’s theme is nearly, break out the Christmas decorations. It is full of Craft and Vendor fairs, kicking off the holiday shopping season. 

PS> It’s daylight savings, so don’t forget to change your clocks (unless they are all smart). 

Lastly, Lake Country Family Fun did our research, like we do, and found all the {other} fun things for you and your family to do this weekend, too.
