Weekend Fun for LA Kids: Veterans Day, Superheroes, and Snow Tubing Downtown

Things to do with Los Angeles kids
Snow in LA?! Find it at the Old Lodge in Elysian Park!

We have so much to be grateful for in this country, and we owe so much to our veterans—those who have put themselves in harm's way to defend the liberties we hold dear. This year, Veterans Day falls on a Sunday, though some observances are held on Monday, too (including that kid favorite: day off from school). 

Thanks to our valiant warriors, we are free to do things our own way. Even if that means we need two advent calendars to mark off the days between now and that other holiday. (You can still get away with one if you're more of a menorah kind of family.)

So, like, if we want to start lighting our trees and singing holiday tunes and playing in the snow and sayin' hi to Santa and dancing to the Nutcracker and buying holiday gifties, even if we want to do all that, even though it is barely the second week in November and that is downright nutballs, we have the right to do it. Because America, and thank you veterans. They are the true superheroes of our story.

Feel free to keep reading for our most nutball picks for this weekend...
