31 Days of Living Local

Weekend Activities with Macaroni Kids {31 Days: Day 26}


Meet my friend, Jennifer.

She has triplets.  All boys.  And a little girl.  And a teenage son.

Yeah, I know.  She’s super mom.

She’s also a mom who loves to get out and be active with her family and enjoy all the local activities that are just minutes from our homes.  So…

“When we first moved to North Georgia, I cried a lot. There was no Target to stop by on the way home, no conveniences.  When we were in Atlanta with nothing to do, we went shopping.  I still remember leaving the old Ingles and crying in the parking lot. I loved fresh produce and their store was not like any I shopped at in Atlanta. The schools were different too, and I cried.

     
Fast forward twelve Years. I now shop online, in the evening, when the kids are sleeping.  When I really need some me time I still go shopping, not at Target, but consignment stores, Belks and all those cute local shops. I love talking to our neighbors.  I shop farmers markets for our fresh produce now and I love where our kids go to school.  We are fortunate to live in area where we have so many State Parks and we use them all of the time. When there is nothing else to do we hike, or bike or play in the water. We love it.  Life is different now, and we are happy.


 We do love to get out so we are constantly looking for things to do in the area. We try to find things or events we will all enjoy.  I was always being asked how did you find out about that?  So I thought why not have a website where I can share what I find in our community.  Because I am not truly computer savvy and had no idea how to even set up a website, I found Macaroni Kid.  Macaroni Kid is a National company. They have helped me get everything started.  With Macaroni Kid I can share all of our local family friendly events with other families.  It also is allowing me to share some of our local businesses that parents may be interested in and never have known about. I am having so much fun with this and learning so much more about our area at the same time
.”

Check it out here and be sure to let her know of any great activities coming up that could be added.  If I was home this weekend, I’d definitely be checking out the pottery show in downtown Cornelia or heading over to Pumpkin Days in the Park at Unicoi State Park in Helen. 

And if you’re not local to my area, you can still use Macaroni Kid to find out about activities in your local area too!
