Another busy week goes down in the books!  Whew!  Jen and I split up for the first time the weekend and were at separate events.  Thank you to our subscribers who stopped by and said hello!  We are very happy to welcome our new subscribers.  Make sure you check out our article "Get the Most Out of Macaroni Kid".

Have you made those plans for your child for camp this summer?  Don't wait.  The "cool" camps fill up fast!  We have 3 amazing camps listed in our Summer Camp Guide, so make sure you take a look!
 
If you have not had a chance to, make sure you check out our Work From Home Guide. If you have ever thought of working from home this is the place to start.  Three local representatives tell you all about the companies they love and have put their hearts and souls into!  Learn how you can get started working for the companies that provide us with the products we love!

We are making a change to our Birthday Club.  We are happy to announce that we have almost 200 kids signed up for the club!  That's great!  However, with that many kids, it is very difficult to keep up with the individual e-cards and Facebook announcements.  So, from now on, we will only be announcing birthdays in our newsletter (in this opening article).  We apologize for any disappointment, but we hope you can understand.  Don't worry, we are still continuing with the sponsors and giveaways each month.  We have a great one this month, Lil' Sports, and some other great sponsors coming up in the next few months, as well.

We are very happy to announce that Kristen Hart has won the Kidz Zone Bar giveaway!  Congratulations!  We hope you enjoy them as much as we did!

Mother's Day is swiftly approaching. We have a great new giveaway in celebration of this day and are also thrilled to announce that Hershey Park is giving a great deal to mom's on Mothers Day.  Make sure you take a look at the Mother's Day articles!

Have you used our Kids Eat Free article yet?  We have made a few changes that may help you out.  To make things easier we are now listing the restaurants by the day of the week that they provide their specials.  We have also added a few restaurants!  If you know of any that we have missed please email us or feel free to comment below. 

We have a lot of birthdays to announce this week!  We would like to say a big Happy Birthday to:

Evan who is turning 6 on the 23rd.
Kyle who is turning 3 on the 23rd.
Ian who is turning 3 on the 25th.
Addy will be turning 2 on the 25th.
Tyler will be turning 6 on the 25th.
Shawn will be turning 3 on the 28th.
Savannah will be turning 7 on the 28th.
 

Have your say
