It's going to be cold outside for a while. The weather forecast doesn't show us hitting 50 degrees in the next week. I know, I know, it's February. Last weekend, instead of freezing outside, I headed to Aunt Nina's Sweets and Treats for the Sweets for the Sweet Art show. The show honored Thea DeLuna. I bought a couple crayon necklaces for the boys and indulged in the traditional Chicago mix of popcorn - that's caramel and cheese mixed together. That warms the soul.
If you're not a fan of the cold or not brave like the runners at the last weekend, all hope is not lost. There are upcoming local events to take your kids to that are indoors. And adults might enjoy it too.
Starting at 2 p.m., Feb. 18, grab a seat at the and catch a family-friendly movie - with snacks. You need to register for the event ahead of time.
Are you the mom of a son? The Channahon Park District has an event for you. On March 8, boys and their moms will have a dinner buffet, sundae bar and watch a treat of Dave DiNaso's Traveling World of Reptiles.
The 75 minute presentation will give kids and their moms a chance to pet a python, iguana, lizard and more. A professional photographer will be available with picture package options (check or cash only). All participants must pre-register.
