Things to Do: August 2018

We've been back from Greece for almost 2 weeks now - and I'm still missing it. Sorry for the lack of posts - but life has been busy. Gus turned 4 (finally!), I'm working way more hours than I planned AND Lucille starts Kindergarten in 2 weeks! Eek.

Anyways, I did have time to pull together some fun activities happening around town this month. This could be especially useful if your kids don't start school till after Labor Day. Like Gus. Here are some ideas.


August 3: Library Golf - Play an unusual game of mini-golf at the Arden-Dimick library after hours. The holes are set up by teens in the rows of books. All ages ... and sounds like fun!

August 5: Peach Festival (Carmichael) - If you missed the Peach Festival at the Folsom Farmers' Market last month (or maybe you just really love peaches) - here is a second chance. This is one of my favorite, local, seasonal fruit.

August 15: Music Class for kids - Two Rivers Music Together is a great kid music class - and you can check out a demo class at the Children's Museum with Mrs. Georgia. Gus used to love these classes - heck he probably still would.

August 18: High Tea in the Orchard - Have a tea party loving kid? This high tea event they have at Harris Tree Farm at Apple Hill sounds like a fun event. I mean, tea and baked goodies out in an orchard? Yes, please. They have a date in September as well if this one doesn't work out for you.

August 18: Ice Cream Safari - We have never actually been to an Ice Cream Safari at the zoo - but they always sound like a great idea. Maybe this year I will buy tickets in time.

August 25: Music in the Park - FBI Band - On a hot Sacramento night - I love being outside, finding some shade, and enjoying some music. Plus the kids can run around and play at the playground. This band is Motown Soul ... which I imagine means lots and lots of dancing.
