what I'm doing this weekend...

This short week has just flown by, and it went something like this: rain, work, work, work, rain, hail, tea parties with Levy, rain. And even though it is only Thursday I already have the weekend on my mind and it is going to be, you guessed it, BUSY! Busy but fun, I can't wait... Tonight I'm going to the fabulous Music, Models, Mingling and More event at Saratoga Polo to benefit the Adult and Senior Center of Saratoga. With gourmet food from the Old Daley Inn, a fashion show and great music it is guaranteed to be a fantastic time. Tickets are still available (online until 3pm today and then tonight at the door), check out the invitation here!

Friday is jam packed. It's a half day at school for Finn, the start of June (rabbit rabbit) and...THE POOL IS OPENING AT MCGREGOR! We have been literally counting down the days here, the kids cannot wait. So school, pool, t-ball and then I'm going to head downtown to help the great guys at Modern Mix Marketing celebrate their one year birthday! For the group that put together the Saratoga Lip Dub it is the absolute least I can do...

I also must make a stop at the Boogie Off Broadway event for the Double H Ranch Partners of Saratoga. Held at the Historic Victoria Pool it will include savory cuisine catered by Catherine's in the Park, an open bar, and dancing with "Groove Therapy". Chic island attire? Check!

Saturday, let's see...farmers' market, birthday parties, MORE T-BALL, and did you know kids get in FREE at The Great Escape on Saturday with GE Kids in Free days?!

Also happening on Saturday is a great event at the Saratoga Strike Zone, the Fourth Annual Bowling for Scholars: Half-price bowling all day for the family, plus the fabulous Gutterball Bash Cocktail Party at 7pm for the adults! With music by 2's Company and food by Hattie's it is a great night out to help out a fantastic program. Saratoga Sponsor a Scholar helps local economically disadvantaged students realize their dream of going to college. The organization provides academic tutoring, mentors, help with college preparation during the last three years of high school and a financial stipend during college. Want more info? Just call 587-2472.

Sunday is all about one event, the Cantina Kids Fun Run. I can't tell you enough how important this family event is to Saratoga. All of the money raised goes to benefit Pediatric Emergency Services at Saratoga Hospital, something that is absolutely vital to every single family in our community. Registration begins at 8am and the race starts at 9am. Kids up to age 12 can choose between the 1/4 course or the 1 mile course. Plus you can run as a family, put the little ones in a stroller and do it together! There will be a bounce house, music, healthy snacks and more! I really hope to see you there!

So there you have it, one full and fantastic weekend. Plus there are even more excellent ideas for the weekend over at my Top Fives: outdoor trail building, Wilton Wildlife Festival and much more! Happy weekend Mamatogians! xoxo Jenny

p.s. I'd like to say a very Happy Birthday to my beautiful little California girl Stella who turns four today...
