Happy Wednesday, Smarties! We're happy to report that today's post is sponsored by Confluence Coffee, a great child-friendly (and mom-friendly!) coffee shop.

Beginning at 11:30 am, Confluence will have carnival games, three bounce houses, food from East Coast Wings, face painting, live fire engine demonstrations, live music, a Guitar Hero Wii tournament, and princess party featuring story and craft times, dress up, games and dancing. It lasts ALL day (from 11:30 am to 10 pm) and it’s FREE. So come out and enjoy the fun!! An entire entertainment line-up (including bands playing Friday night) can be found on their blog.
