And just like that, the last weekend of the summer is upon us and we’re left to wonder, “where did the time go”?! If you’re like me, you have to figure out how to enjoy this last weekend in the sun with and without your offspring; lucky for you I’ve got it covered! I’ve searched the interweb; which means all I really did was google “Labor Day Happenings Richmond” and events popped up, but I had to compile the list into TWO seperate parts and add some pictures so yep I worked hard for y’all to give you events for both your little ones and yourself!
