The Life is Good store in The Shoppes at English Village on Bethlemhem Pike in North Wales, is holding a Summer Celebration Event, Saturday July 16th from 12pm to 4pm. Celebrate outside with Free live music, water ice, face painting, balloons, games and prizes. After all, Life is Good.
Make it a day: Start the day with the Lansdale Farmers Market in the morning, then celebrate summer with the folks at Life is Good in the afternoon. The kids are bound to take a good nap after that!

2. Thomas and Friends take over the track at Thomas the Tank Engine and Friends Weekend at the Garden Railway of the Morris Arboretum at the University of Pennsylvania, Saturday July 17th and Sunday July 18th from 10am to 5 pm.

3. Jam with the folks of The Little Treehouse this Saturday, July 17th as children's performer Peter Moses rocks the house. Don't forget, show up early for a good seat and dinner or a snack. Adults are free, one child is $8.50 every additional child after that is 50% off! Not bad! Don't be late, show starts at 6:00pm.

4. It's PECO Primate Jungle Days over at the Philadelphia Zoo this Saturday and Sunday from 10:00am to 4:00pm.Primate Jungle Days include talks, training demonstrations, a chance to pretend you are one of their primates by practicing walking like a gorilla, arts and craft, storytelling and much more. Admission for the Zoo is Adults $18, children ages 2-11 is $15 and children under the age of 2 are free. I cannot stress the amount of money you save by becoming a member.  The best membership packages run between $99 and $229 for the year, They always send you a coupon for discounted membership with renewal. Between admission, balloon rides, parking and all the other rides available at the zoo you can easily pay your membership back in at least 2 visits, and if you have a family that loves the rides, one visit! The membership to the Zoo is a no brainer!

5. Our friends over at the Garden State Discovery Museum celebrate Dr. Seuss with Dr. Seuss on Stage through July 31st.
