I was just beginning to adjust to September and low and behold it is November already. Where in the world has the fall gone? Every year the same thing happens around this time of year.

It is Sunday afternoon and the kids are restless. What do you do? We know a place, the perfect location, in Old Town Arvada on Grandview Avenue called the D Note. Every Sunday the kids, from 1 month to 12 years old, come and enjoy music, both by listening to it, playing it and dancing to it. Parents relax at their tables, watching the kids dance and play together - great entertainment in and of itself. The children make new friends and greet some old ones. Some even make this a weekly gathering spot.

You can print it and hang it on your fridge or toss it in your purse. So you have a great print out of all the things you don't want to miss out on!
