  1. Great finds. Those look like fun events. We’ve never been to the Natural History Museum, maybe we will take a trip there soon.

  2. Hi! I’m working with Red Robin on some content for moms and Cleveland bloggers (including a giveaway) and we love your blog. Do you have a contact e-mail so I can send you more info? Thanks, Amy (amy.eicher@basement-inc.com)
