Hi, From Carissa

September 20, 2019

Happy Friday Richmond friends! It will officially be Fall next week! I am ready, I am not a lover of all things pumpkin spice, but I am ready for some sweaters, apples, and football! The weather has been perfect and our college daughter is coming home this weekend, it has been over a month since we have seen her and we are excited! It is my birthday on Monday, and the best gift I will have is all my kids home together for a few days! This momma is excited! 

I took our son to the "Howl A Ween" fun at Busch Gardens last weekend, he was so excited, I could not say no. We did all the scary stuff, which I m happy to say, was NOT as scary as it could have been! The park is open all day on weekends for all ages and at 6 pm converts to the scary stuff. We are lucky to have 2 great parks to choose from, Kings Dominion is starting the HAUNT this weekend and we will have a giveaway on Facebook this weekend, 

We have a lot of great info this week, including great giveaways, our local sponsors are working hard to bring you the best of the best. Please be sure to check out our advertisers. When we all support local, we help so many in our community! We couldn't do what we do without the support of our local businesses!

Our friends at Richmond Family Magazine are hosting an Education Expo on Sunday, it is for all ages with lots of great info and it's at the Science Museum! Check it all out here.
