Week in Preview: September 23-September 29th, 2013

I have to admit that it’s Monday morning and I’m writing this.  I’ve started about 20 times and for whatever reason I just can’t finish, so hopefully it’ll happen right now, since it’s already “the week”.

Still previewing Tuesday-Sunday….maybe 6 outta 7 ain’t bad will be the new PwcMoms motto 😉

From 9am-6pm Great Country Farms will have their Pumpkin Festival.  This is a drive, but it’s a fun farm.  Check out our review here. 

The Prince William Farm Tour is my favorite.  Alpacas.  Seriously.  Guys, these things say “meep” like the roadrunner and they hug you with their furry necks, and they are amazing. I want two, but we live in a townhouse and we don’t have the yard for that kind of thing. 10-4.

From 4-6pm, The Marketplace at Madison Crescent will have their first Fall Concert with “Burgers”. Fun outdoor event for the whole family! PS- we love them because they sponsor our calendar!

Sunday, September 29
From 12-5, check out the Manassas Latino Festival- Embrace, learn and enjoy the many cultures of our local Latino community! A variety of live entertainment will be performing, several different menus will be available for sale and for the children there will be games, a clown show and a pinata!!

I repeat: The Prince William Farm Tour is
my favorite.  Alpacas.  Seriously.  Guys, these things say “meep” like
the roadrunner and they hug you with their furry necks, and they are
amazing. I want two, but we live in a townhouse and we don’t have the yard for that kind of thing. 12-4. I could change what I wrote, but I really love alpacas.  Remember Kristen Bell on Ellen with the sloths? That’s me with Alpacas.
