Good Morning and Happy Friday!
Today is going to be a pawsome day! Not only is it Friday, but it’s also the last day in September, the best day of the year. Why do I think September 30th is the best day out of the 365 days of the year? Well, if you haven’t guessed yet…it’s my BIRTHDAY!! Yup my big day, haha, and I am planning on enjoying every minute of this day. Help me celebrate by having a treat in my honor and giving one extra to your fur-babies – take a picture and tag me on IG or FB (both are under @wiggilywaggily). Ok enough about me.
If you are looking for something to do this weekend with the family and bring your fur-kids too, then I have some fun things for you. It’s suppose to rain, but lets cross our fingers it holds off till all the fun is over. Below is a list of the events happening on Long Island that you can enjoy with your entire family. If you do go to any of these, make sure to let me know how you like them and tag me in your pictures. Hope you guys have a wonderful weekend!
