May is National Pet Month, and we thought it would be fun to write and read some pet stories. So you do the writing, and we’ll do the reading!\n\nThe contest is open to kids 11 years old and under. Feel free to write a story about your current pet, favorite pet, or best friend’s pet. The story can be 500 – 1000 words in length and can be fact, fiction, or “faction.” And be sure to include a photo of the pet.\n\nSubmissions will be accepted until May 13, 2013. The winner will be announced on Facebook on May 20, 2013. The winner will also get:\n
- 2 VIP Passes, AND
- their story posted on our blog!
\nTo enter, fill out the form below and attach your story and pet photo. We look forward to reading all your great stories. Good luck and good writing!\n\n\n
\n\nAny fun tax day activities planned? We’re thinking the day calls for some kind of chocolate!
We love the cool mornings and warm, soft afternoons that come with Spring. We’ve even been enjoying the April showers, knowing that they bring May flowers. (Not to mention allergies…)\n\nIn any case, we already have a few flowers popping up in the park and look forward to more. And, of course, the warmer weather carries with it that faint hint of summer. Okay, that may be stretching it, but really school will be out before you know it and you’ll be in search of full-time family fun. But in the meantime, if you’re looking to take advantage of the fair weather and want to indulge in some outdoor fun, keep us in mind. Throughout the month of April, we’ll be open Wed.–Fri. from 11 am – 5 pm and Sat.–Sun. from 10 am – 6 pm (weather permitting).\n\nAnd starting in May, we’ll be open 7 days a week. Now that’s more fun than you can shake a stick at! If you’re given to shaking sticks, that is. And speaking of May, don’t forget that moms get to ride free all day Mother’s Day. Moms, you may want to start dropping some hints now!\n\nAnyway, as you plan out your next few months, we hope you include us in those plans. And if you’re feeling restless one of these fine spring days, come out for a spontaneous stroll or spin. There’s nothing quite like happy squeals of laughter to add zest to your day. The kids will love it, and you will too!
