JENN’S TOP 5 PICKS FOR FUN THINGS TO ENJOY WITH KIDS • ARTWORKS at Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts • Vaughn Road Playground • Summer Movies at the Rave and Capri Theatres • Saturday morning Kid’s Workshop at Home Depot and Lowe’s • Chappy’s Deli for Lunch – Kids eat free and they love the mini icecream cone! Jennifer and Chris Jones and their children Jaxon (5) and Connor (2 1/2) have lived in Montgomery for three years. Chris flies F-16’s with the Alabama Air National Guard, and Jennifer stays home with the kids and consults with Usborne Books. Air Force active duty life has provided many wonderful living and traveling experiences in the United States and abroad, but they now enjoy being back in the South near Jennifer’s family. Chris grew up in the state of Washington, but has settled in well, and catches himself often saying y’all with a slight Southern drawl. They are members of Frazer United Methodist Church and enjoy spending time with family and friends and any activities that keep their active preschoolers happy!  Find all the “Kids Eat Free” nights at www.knowthecommunity.com.
