Weekly Roundup and Events to Kick Off February

Posted on Feb. 1, 2019


Hey Happy Active Families!

Happy February and TGIF! Winter is in full swing here in Jackson, WY, just the way we like it. With some warmer temperatures and snow in the forecast, this could be a really perfect weekend to get outside. When you need a break though, there are plenty of exciting indoor kid friendly events to indulge in. Keep scrolling to get to our event list!

In other news, Happy Active Family has recently become a Hike It Baby Ambassador. We’re super excited to spread their mission of ‘connecting families with babies and and young children to the outdoors and to each other’. We will make an honest effort to create accessible hiking opportunities for your young children and you in the Jackson area; because hiking doesn’t have to be a challenging and overwhelming experience! This weekend we will be meeting at the Russ Garaman TH near the new post office at 9:15AM to take a lovely walk along the bike path. We hope you and your littles will take advantage of this opportunity to get outside and play with us! It should be no longer than an hour, a mile out and a mile back. All are welcome! Feel free to email us at team@happyactivefamily.com with any questions or comments!
