free stuff to do this summer at crown center.

we went to crown center the other day to check out the clifford exhibit. it's really cute, especially if your kids watch the show daily. what? i mean... not my kids...we're doing educational activites ALL DAY LONG. ha.

anyway, i found myself saying all the character names and pretending like i was on 'birdwell island', while my husband was looking at me with a wierd, who is emily elizabeth?

so this is a free exhibit to tromp around in. don't go on saturday's or clifford will eat you. not really, but you'll want him to after you see how crowded it gets on that day.

also, there is a dinosaur exhibit going on at union station(connected to crown center)...and although that costs money, there are lots of big dinosaurs around promoting the event that the kids can stare at for free. fun...or scary...if you're my son.
also, our favorite date night activity is coming up. free friday night flicks on the crown center lawn! this is sit on the lawn, pack a picnic, and watch a movie on a ginormous screen. take my word for it, this is worth going to. and it's a free date night. hello.

here is the schej:

July 2- "Pretty in Pink" (1986)

July 9- "Jurassic Park" (1993)

July 16- "Hairspray" (2007)

July 23- "Julie & Julia" (2009)

July 30- "Groundhog Day" (1993)

  1. How about we have a girl's night out when Julie & Julia is on at CC!!! Oh how I love that movie and oh how I love Julie and Julia!!!

    p.s. your pics are fab these days. You've got some serious talent, my dear.

  2. i love the movie line-up this summer, minus harry potter. i've never understood the hooplah of that nonsense. alas, outdoor movies are one of my favorite things. ever!
