Where did May go?

I seriously don't know what happened to the month of May and how it went so quickly. But, I'm determined to have a fabulous summer with my kids! June keeps us pretty busy with football, basketball and cheer camps for the older kids almost every day but I need something to do with my younger kids so I went on a search. Here is a brief list of things local to me in the QC/San Tan Valley area that are free or cost very little. Are you ready to join me for some fun this summer?!?!

Queen Creek Library (Ellsworth/Ocotillo in QC)
Free Every Thursday from 1-2 there are things like magic shows, yo yo demos and more. There are other events as well for older kids as well as babies, check out their calendar Here.

Plus they have a summer reading program! Click Here. 

Apache Junction Library (Idaho/University (Superstition Blvd))
They have a darling castle for the little kids to climb in, play dress up and checkers along with maybe even do a little reading, ha ha. Miss Alana comes to story time on Mondays from 10-11am. Check out their calendar of events Here.

San Tan Regional Park (south of QC) and Usery Mountain Park (northeast Mesa)
I know the daytime is too hot to hike during the summer but they have awesome classes, star gazing, night hikes and more! Cost is $6 per vehicle to get into the park. Check out their websites Here for San Tan and Here for Usery.
