Playgroup for the Week of March 9th

Monday, March 9th at 10:30 a.m.: Bonnie Spring Petting Zoo. $3 admission; Children 2 & younger are free. Meet at the southwest parking lot of the Smiths parking lot on Rainbow at 10:30 a.m. to caravan over there. If possible, try to bring cash for the admission. It will make it easier on you (though they will accept debit/credit cards).
Directions (from Smiths):
1. Head south on Rainbow toward Blue Diamond.
2. Turn right at Blue Diamond Rd/NV-160 (6.7 mi)
3. Turn right at Blue Diamond Rd/Charleston Blvd/NV-159 Continue to follow NV-15
4. Turn left at Bonnie Springs
***From Blue Diamond, turn right when you see the gas station on the left hand side. If you go past the gas station, you've gone too far. I know this from experience . . .
If you'd like, bring quarters to buy food to feed the animals. Also, if you plan on buying food, bring a little baggie to put the food in as your kids will probably drop most of it on the ground without one.

Thursday, March 12th at 10 a.m.: Pottery Barn Sing-Along with Beverly Frances at the Pottery Barn for Kids in Summerlin. I'm not sure what this is like but I figure if it's not fun, there's always shopping.
1. Take the 215 west.
2. Exit Charleston. Turn right (east).
3. You'll go approximately three miles until you see Rampart Commons on your left hand side.
(An alternative route for those more familiar with Las Vegas is to take the 215 to Flamingo, go right, then turn left on Fort Apache. Fort Apache will take you directly to Rampart Commons.)

The shopping center has a Gap, Pottery Barn, and P.F. Changs. Look for the P.F. Changs as it is right on Charleston. The Pottery Barn for Kids is in the west side of the parking lot between Pottery Barn and Gap.

Playgroup This Week

Wednesday, March 4th at 10:30 a.m.: Natural History Museum. Admission is $8 for adults; $7 for military/students; $4 for children 3-11; and children 2 & under are free.
Most of the playgroup kids are under 3 so they will be free. As for the adults and kids 3 and older, go HERE for a buy one get one free coupon. I figure we can all just share them when we get there so we can get in for half off.

900 North Las Vegas Blvd., Las Vegas, NV. Cross-streets are Las Vegas Blvd. and Washington. The Museum is adjacent to Cashman Center. Meet at the southwest corner of the Smiths Parking lot (on Rainbow) at 10 am if you'd like to caravan over. Please remember that the exit mapquest tells you to take is closed for construction (I think it's D Street) so the easiest way to get there is to take the 15 North to the 95 South. Once on the 95 South, exit Las Vegas Boulevard, and take a left.

Friday, March 6th at 10 a.m.: Petsmart Store Tour. If your kids are anything like mine, they go nuts in pet stores. Come join us for our own pet store tour at the Petsmart in the Arroyo Crossing Shopping Center (by the Walmart/Sam's Club off of Rainbow and the 215).
