It’s almost impossible to believe May 2019 is halfway over already. And soon, the whole year will be halfway over. Despite more drenching rains than we can shake a stick at, the year is flying by. Here’s a snapshot of some fun Montgomery and Berks County events for kids and families to enjoy in May 2019. Also be sure to download a copy of my May Passport to Fun so you can check off as many fun kids’ activities in the month of May as possible.
When a full trip to the zoo isn’t in the cards, a visit to the Oley Turnpike Dairy and Petting Zoo can be just as much fun at a moment’s notice and a fraction of the cost. On the way to the petting zoo, Berks County roads took us over a picturesque covered bridge shortly before our arrival. The country roads flanked by serene landscape offered a calm and comfortable, leisurely commute. The Oley petting zoo prices and wide variety of animals, plus play area and ice cream, offered a fun and affordable stop on our birthday girl’s Saturday afternoon family celebration.
If you’ve driven by Ott’s Exotic Plants dozens of times and haven’t stopped yet, you are missing out. In the world of southeastern PA plants, this place is one of the greatest we’ve found. I’ve wanted to take my daughters to Ott’s nursery for quite some time. From the rural road, the Ott’s Greenhouse stands out vibrantly full of life. And that’s before you even step inside. Schwenksville’s roadside gem offers adventures untold for plant lovers, nature lovers, and wide-eyed children alike. Here’s a snapshot of what we found inside.
For the second year in a row, it’s going to be another rainy Mother’s Day. Luckily last year our family went to see the Lombardi Trophy. It was a great day at the Home of the Philadelphia Eagles, Lincoln Financial Field. We got our pictures taken with the Super Bowl trophy and then went out to Nifty Fifty’s for burgers and shakes. They gave me a free flower and it was pretty much a perfect day. I’m feeling a little less optimistic about Mother’s Day 2019. This year the weather looks pretty terrible—cold with a high of 52 and more rain. So, I’ve been scouring all over the web to find indoor Mother’s Day activities to enjoy on a rainy day.
Most of the time, parents go to carnivals to make their kids happy. Kids go to carnivals to ride all the rides, play all the games, and eat all the junk food. I am totally down with funnel cake, cotton candy, and ice cream, but c’mon, we adults know there’s more to a Friday or Saturday night than a cup of cheese fries. That’s why I’ve compiled this list of local outdoor beer garden carnivals and kid-friendly festivals for your convenience.
I don’t know about you, but for me, fishing is a favorite pastime I enjoyed as a young girl. I still remember the excitement of the annual fishing contest we used to attend as children. Getting up early, grabbing our gear, getting sprayed down in a cloud of DEET. A quick breakfast later and we were off to catch Big Charlie. (Or sometimes little Charlie. Or sometimes, a cold.) Trying your luck in a fishing contest with your kids can become a treasured memory for a lifetime to come. Here are some fishing derbies and events scheduled for 2019 in our area.
Two young gymnasts couldn’t be more excited to have Urban Air Royersford finally OPEN! We marked our calendars and waited excitedly for the Urban Air Royersford Grand Opening back in March. Rolling up just before 9:30 a.m., we hoped to be within the first 200 people through the doors. Urban Air Jump Passes for the next 52 weeks were at stake!
Every mama needs a break here and there. Schedule your next girls’ night out in Berks or Montgomery County with one of these fun femme bucket list ideas. I’ve pulled together 22 ladies’ night ideas in our area and will continue to add more as they come to my attention. Enjoy your much-deserved girls’ night and make your own bucket list with some of these ideas. (Forgive the fact that most of my photos are with my little girls! Clearly I don’t get out as much as I should.)
While researching Easter egg hunts for kids, I pleasantly surprised myself finding a few adult Easter egg hunt events in our area. Easter egg hunts with beer. Easter egg hunts with wine. Adult Easter egg hunts with gift certificates, and lottery tickets, and of course, grand prizes. The more I found, the more I realized I really need this in my life. Don’t you? I mean, don’t we all? Shouldn’t we remember what it feels like to be a kid again, at least every once in a while?
Whatever the case, if you live along the Route 422 corridor in Montgomery or Berks County and you’ve been searching for an “adult Easter egg hunt near me,” you’ve come to the right place!
