Ronnie's Awesome List - February 2013

Marinhood, The Ultimate Kids Events Round-Up In Marin And Beyond and home to Ronnie's Awesome List.

Talking pigs, celebrating snakes, herrings on the run....this February is chock full of fun things to do with your family.

For a FABULOUS fundraiser on February 2nd head over to Marin Charitable’s 5th Annual Family Day at the Movies Fundraiser, “Charlotte’s Web”, 10:30AM-2PM at the 142 Throckmorton Theatre in Mill Valley. Pre-show free activities including face painting, poketlady, and hair flairs! Don't miss it. Get your ticket today!

Tickets are also now available for the AMAZING Royal Ball“Destination India.”  The Royal Ball will take place March 10 but these tickets sell fast and all proceeds go to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. This is a festive party for the entire family to dress up and have a great day out. Don't miss either of these 2 great fundraisers!

Mother Nature never stops putting on a show of her own. The birds at the Richardson Bay Audubon Center & Sanctuary just off Tiburon Blvd. are in HUGE numbers right now with the recent herring spawn event. They had easily over 10,000 birds in their bay and millions of herring eggs all over the beach. I took home a strand of eggs that were clinging to a piece of seaweed for my daughter to look at under the microscope. It was amazing to see tiny fish moving around inside their egg. To enhance your experience even more at the Richardson Bay Audubon Center & Sanctuary, check out their "Exploration Backpack." Pick it up at the front office before heading to the beach. It contains educational information, magnifying lenses, art supplies, and more.

Anyone who knows me, knows I am addicted to Geocaching. It is one of my favorite things to do with my daughter. Go to www.geocaching.com and plug in a zip code to start your treasure hunt. The idea is to locate hidden containers. The journey and discovery is as exciting for you as it is for the kids and you can do it anywhere in the world! If you are interested in learning more, REI is holding a free Introductory Geocaching Family Hike class for beginners, February 16, 10am-2pm at the Zinfandel Trail in Cupertino, RSVP at (650) 691-1200.

Ronnie's Awesome MNO/Date Night recommendation this month: "Waiting for Godot" at the Marin Theatre Company. This play has opened to rave reviews.  It's funny AND it's a one of the most influential cultural works of the 20th century. I got my ticket! Play runs to February 17.

As you can see, for such a short month there is so much to do. Enjoy the magical month of February!
