What a beautiful weekend we had and it looks like we’re heading into an equally beautiful week!

There’s something energizing about warm weather after a long winter. We have been hard at work creating a space for a some pretty awesome new things for Rockford4Kids and we got so much done this weekend! I can’t wait to show you what we’ve been working on!

But you’re here for the list of things to do, so without further ado….

Here are this week’s picks for fun things to do with the kids in Rockford!
