Free Grandparent’s Day at the Zoo
Sunday Sept 13th, 10 am – 4 pm
Sunday will be free for all grandparents, from opening time at 10 am until the zoo closes at 4 pm. But here’s a secret tip: Bring in any type of hand-colored picture of a zoo animal – one for each child and you’ll all get in FREE. For more information, call (415) 753-7201.

When we’re able to, this is one of the kids and my favorite things to do on a Saturday morning. Just the sight of wonderfully colored veggies at all the booths is enough for inspiration for that night’s dinner. And it’s a great way to get the kids motivated to eat their veggies. The Santa Rosa Farmer’s Market is open on Wednesday and Saturday mornings 8:30 a.m. to 12:00 noon. It’s located in the Veterans Bldg East Parking Lot 1351 Maple Ave. For more info, email mail to:firstname.lastname@example.org.
Do you have or know of a family event that you want other moms to know about? Email me at email@example.com by Wednesday to make it into Friday’s blog of “Best Bets for the Weekend”.
On the 13th, from noon to 4pm, there will be a human chess game in courthouse square in Santa Rosa. This is a free event, and kids are encouraged to try their luck at a game of chess.
Thanks for the heads up Heather! That sounds like a blast! If anyone else knows of events going on this weekend that I missed, please share them with us here in the comments. It would be much appreciated!
