Labor Day Weekend is upon us! Though many of us have already sent our kids back to school for 2017-18 and some of us are just wrapping up the final school-supply and new-shoes runs, the summer is not quite over yet! Here are a few of the events we’re looking at for the weekend: All Weekend The Big Bounce Head to Hillsboro for the world’s biggest bounce house! There will be multiple themed zones from inflatable forests inhabited by giant inflatable characters (8ft pink gorilla’s anyone?) to super-sized ball pits, slides, obstacles and basketball hoops for you to jump on, slide down and slam-dunk into! When you and your kids need a rest, there are also areas to relax and listen to what the DJ is spinning! Friday noon-7pm, Sat-Mon 8am-7:30pm.

When it comes to shopping for your children, choosing the right brand can be daunting. Will it last? Will it protect? Is it comfortable? Is it worth the price? Will my child like it? As the owner of Beanstalk resale, I have scoured through dozens of product brands to determine which items are the best in quality, durability, comfort and fashion.
