Take the kids off of the sofa and out to some local destinations next month. We're letting you know about two events you should pencil in right now.

Teddy Bear Picnic

Hogle Zoo is inviting kids to bring their teddy bears on Aug. 4 for a picnic. Kids who bring their teddy bear will get $2 off child's admission. It's going to be a fun event, where kids will also be able to make crafts ad get scrapbooking ideas from local scrapbook stores. Both kids and adults will be able to have the zoo's veterinarians give their teddy bears a check-up at the bear health station.
