Summer Activities

We have set up some opportunities for you to get your kids out the house this summer.  Tina Barnes has graciously accepted he challenge to schedule something every Thursday* morning, from May 29th until August.  We encourage you to step out bravely and join other MOPS moms at the park or at a tour that is scheduled.  You can even bring your own friends outside of MOPS.  There really isn’t a restriction on who can come, although on most of the tours we have to turn in an anticipated number attending so the business can be ready for all of us and our kids.

You can take the time and put these on your calendar, or you can rely on a blog post each Monday morning on the location we are meeting at.

Please keep in mind a few things:

  • You can always pack a lunch for you and your kiddos and extend your visit to the park.
  • We meet at 10:00am unless posted.
  • You can bring friends and family outside the group.  Its worth repeating!
  • You must RSVP for the tours by the deadline listed – we want to be respectful on time and space that a large group requires.  You can cancel if you need to, we ask that you let us know.  RSVP on the First Free MOPS facebook page or at  You can RSVP early. 🙂


We look forward to seeing you there!

* most Thursdays, the movie is on Wednesday morning.  See the listing for more details.
