Easter is creeping along side of us in just a few weeks! I cannot believe it! Over the weekend, my husband and I took our daughter to Laurel Park Mall, in Livonia to visit the Easter Bunny. Kelsey will be 6 in less then a month. I must admit, I became a little teary eyed because she was becoming a bit suspicious of this so-called Easter Bunny. She was asking questions, why doesn’t he talk? Sigh…..

Anyway, I started compiling a list of fun events for the whole family throughout Wayne County and Oakland County! Please feel free to mention other events you LOVE to attend as we will continue to update our lists.
