November Chill

October was pretty crazy with Halloween events and fall festivals just about every weekend. November will be a lot more chill, giving us the breather we need before December lunacy. Of course, we still want to get out of the house and do fun things with our littles. Here’s a list of low cost or free events to look forward to this month . . .
