Thank you for being a part of our Macaroni Kid Lakewood/Littleton community.  It has only been a little over a week since I have taken over here, busy as bee and loving every minute of it!  I have been working hard to input events for you and your family to enjoy.  There is so much for us all to do, right here in our very own neighborhoods!  Please keep checking the calendar frequently, as it will continue to fill up with events and fun stuff to entertain, educate and exhaust your kiddos of all ages.
