This Week's Top Picks: June 9-15

My kid friendly top picks for this week!

Hello everyone! I hope we all dealt with the heat without the use of swear words or crying (neither of which I do).

This week's weather looks good, and so do the events. This Tuesday Is National Teddy Bear Picnic Day! I want everyone to celebrate and to share their celebrations with The Mommy's Guide.

Now it doesn't' have to be Tuesday if you are busy, we can skip the formalities, but everyone go and have a teddy bear picnic -- if its too hot, have one indoors. Make it special with treats and games and, of course, your teddy bears!

Then take a million pictures. Take the best one and send it over to me themommysguide@gmail.com so that I can post it on my site next week! Our week starts on Sunday, so have it over to me by then. I am even going to be holding a gathering this Tuesday! 

Now, back to business, this weeks top picks!
