Thursday, February 3rd    Barcroft Sports and Fitness Playgroup

10am @ Barcroft Sports and Fitness, Arlington

Located in S. Arlington off Four Mile Run Dr. , this playgroup is located in the huge main gym and there are toys, balls, bikes, cars, and walkers available.  Because the area is so big, the older kids can run around and ride bikes, and the littler ones can still play without (too much) fear of  trike hit and run.  It can get hectic with older kids, but other moms and dads have always been pretty hands on when we have been there.  Cost is $3 per adult (free for members).  No registration is required!


Friday, February 4th    Tiny Tot

10am @ Gulf Branch Nature Center, Arlington
