and still growing!
I hope your first day of school with
Fall is Here! your kiddos went Great! Summer is
over, but I must say this Mama had a
wonderful Summer and hated to see it go! This by far was one of my favorite
Summers! I am sharing a few picture with you from my trip to Bali with my
daughters. I can't tell you enough what a wonderful experience it was to go
to a place I've been wanting to go to since I saw the movie Eat, Pray, Love,
and to experience this with my daughters was something I will never forget. I
got to share a dream with them, and we experienced snorkeling, a monkey
forest, and some of the most beautiful oceans, mountains, sunsets and
sunrises I have ever seen. I got to see my youngest who turns 21 this year,
and who traveled to Southeast Asia for the entire summer with her boyfriend,
grow into a strong, confident, fearless woman right before my eyes. I got to
re-connect with my middle daughter in a whole different way watching her fly
for the first time out of the country, and grow more into her adulthood as well.
We learned to support each other, work together and face things without
fear. It was like we were just three girlfriends on a trip together. I didn't need
to mother them, I just sat back and enjoyed them. I cherish these photos.
Being a mama has so many wonderful benefits, whether you are a new
mama, have had a few kids already, are a mama like myself with adult
children, or maybe you’re a grandma... whatever age or stage you are in,
enjoy it, every minute of it. Yes, there are times when we just feel like we
need a break, or don't know how we will get through something, but when
your kids grow up and believe me it seems like they do at lightning speed,
you will one day look back and cherish those little moments you had. Let
them be little as long as you can... and enjoy it, and when they are all grown
up, no matter what path they choose, stand beside them, and let them know
you support them in whatever they want to do.
I have learned to mother less and support more as my kids get older, and I've
learned that its also ok to put yourself first too when needed. This trip made
me remember who I was as a young woman. I highly recommend planning a
trip either now or in the future with your older daughters, sons, kids to a
magical place where you can all connect all over again! I hope you enjoy
my pics and now lets get back to reality, back to school, and of course...
Bring on FALL FUN!
We have filled this issue with all the wonderful fall fest and happenings in the
area, and there are so many! Don't forget to check out our facebook page
for your chance to win Shadybrook Farm and The Market at Del Val Fall Fest
Passes. Enter your photos for a chance to be next year’s cover winner by

ize our locals, because without them we couldn't put this lil guide in your
hands! Have a Fun Filled Fall and enjoy all the great events and things to do
in this issue! We would also like to thank you, our fans and readers, and
local advertisers, for helping us celebrate 9 years of Mama's Lil Guide this
year. Without your support we would not have been able to put out our great
lil guide. We love our community and are so blessed to have been doing this

All of the staff members and guests who visit the Barn Nature Center have one very important thing in
common: A passion for wildlife! Most of us will go out of our way to catch and release spiders from our
homes or create little habitats in our yards to encourage wildlife to visit!
Knowing this, what we are about to tell you may seem a little strange. If you ever see a bug that looks like the
one in the picture…smoosh it. That is a spotted lanternfly, and they are a particularly nasty invasive species.
An invasive species is a living thing (typically an animal or plant) that is brought into a new habitat where it
does not belong. Sometimes people bring them by accident, like with the lanternflies, and sometimes it is on
purpose, like with feral cats. We have several animals at the Nature Center that are invasive species in
different places around the world, most notably red-eared slider turtles and a cane toad. No matter what the
species is, it almost always messes up the ecosystems and habitats that it invades.
Spotted lanternflies destroy trees and other plants,
and secrete a honeydew that grows mold, furthering
damage to plants. They are originally from Asia, and
our native plants are not equipped to deal with them.
In the fall they lay massive numbers of eggs, so it is
important to kill them or report them on the PA Depart-
ment of Agriculture Website.
Happy hunting everyone!

Hello fellow parents!

We are super excited to join your community! We thank everyone who has brought their family and
friends to spend time at Urban Air Willow Grove. Here’s a little bit of information on us, the franchise
owner/operators. We are the proud parents of three wonderful girls and we had a dream of
launching a business that could really add enrichment to our family life, as well as to the lives of
other parents. We both have corporate backgrounds in the sales arena (technology, pharmaceutical
and medical). In the growing age of technology and electronics, we saw the opportunity to own
and operate an Urban Air Adventure Park franchise as a great way to provide an alternative form of
entertainment for families and businesses. At Urban Air Willow Grove, families and friends can
gather to play, explore, socialize and find adventure together. Our tagline is “Activate Awesome” –
our goal is ensure that everyone has a fun and safe time at the park and create lasting memories!

Children who’ve had a concussion with symptoms lasting

Visual problems that occur after a brain injury respond

Therefore, home inventory is low, which means that there are less homes available than buyers,
creating a great opportunity to list your home.
