When it comes to eating out, we have our work cut out for us. We have one child with food allergies and another whose “picky eating” repertoire is quite extensive. So when I find out that one of our favorite restaurants – that is not only affordable, yummy, and all-kids approved – is having a family fun event, I scream YAHOOOOOOOOOOOOO as loud as I can. Then I call my husband to tell him the good news and officially schedule it into our shared Google calendar.

It’s so fun, I want to share the details with all of my Mojitos & Munchkins readers. {You’re welcome} First, check to see if there is a Dickey’s BBQ Pit in your area. Then, continue reading to find out more about what we’re so excited about.
