// Anyone else proud of their ‘lil makers for all the building they’ve been doing with the blocks and bricks they got over the holidays? Or do you find yourself wishing you wouldn’t step on them with every move? If your living room looks like Pittsburgh’s original makerspace (Snapology), trust me, that’s a good thing!
Winter is definitely here in the ‘Burgh, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t plenty of things to do with kids in Pittsburgh in January. We’ve browsed the internet and local events calendar and have pulled together a list of things for you to do with your ‘lil Burghers in January. Enjoy!
This post is a collaboration with Kennywood Amusement Park. In exchange for sharing these deals with you, we’ll be taking the kids to their Holiday Lights. Thank you, Kennywood, for this opportunity!
One of my favorite memories as a kid was going to Kennywood for my Pappy’s Railroad picnic every summer. I can smell the Potato Patch fries and hear the shrieks from the Thunderbolt for miles.
Our friends at Feld Entertainment and Disney on Ice made a family fun night possible for us in exchange for telling you about this local event. All opinions, as always, are 100% our own.
Do you want to build a snowman? If you still find yourself singing this song from the story of sisterly love from Disney, you just might want to get yourself and your kids off to PPG Paints Arena tomorrow or Sunday. Feld Entertainment presents Disney on Ice: Frozen through the weekend.
Are Yinz excited for Brick Fest Live Pittsburgh? If you love building with toy bricks (Lego if we’re being specific), then you’ve got just one more day to catch this fun event that came to our city this weekend. The ‘lil Burghers got a chance to check it out today (thanks to US Family Guide) and are here to tell you it is awesome!
() Kids are getting stronger and smarter. They are empowered to go out and do great things (like starting companies and non-profits or inventing the latest tech) at a young age. With opportunities like iD Tech Camps to kick-start dreams of innovation, it’s no mystery why this is the trend.
This spring, I am partnering with Just Between Friends to bring you information on their seasonal children’s and maternity consignment sale events. All opinions are my own. ()
Jed & Kelly Robie, parents of four and owners of Just Between Friends Pittsburgh, know what it’s like to raise a family of four kids (like us). It can be expensive, but they say it doesn’t have to be. Their seasonal consignment sales across the area bring ways for families to shop with confidence, at a good price, and even make money by consigning outgrown kid gear and clothing.
Follow along with me as I share my half marathon journey – I’ll be running my second half in Pittsburgh this May – with weekly updates. ()
Anyone else still feeling the effect of Daylight Saving Time? Truth be told, I cruised into work on Monday because yinz’all were sleeping in, but by Thursday I was right there with you. In the last two days, I hit snooze at least 27 times and I am so ready for bed as I’m typing up this post tonight. But, a deal is a deal, and I’m committed to this training and sharing of the plan!
This post about British Soccer Camp is one such post.
What does Evan want to be when he grows up? A soccer player.
That’s why I’m not at all surprised when he was full of delight when I asked him if he’d be interested in spending a week of his summer focused on soccer skills. I didn’t even have to bribe him with “you’ll get to ride to work with Mommy and maybe we’ll stop for coffee one or two days”, because he’s just that into soccer. Score.
This post, Questburgh Escape Room, is one such post.
As a blogger, words come easy. But putting words to how much fun we had at Questburgh Escape Room here in Pittsburgh is never going to do our experience justice. When the owner, Gino, first reached out to me about this escape room, I was excited, but I had no idea the level of awesome we were about to encounter.
