    The 2015 FREE Children's Spring Film Festival has now been announced. The following movies are free for kids 12 and under at the MJR Movie Theatre in Brighton. Only $1 per ticket, ages 13+. All of these movies are rated PG. These get filled up quick so allow plenty of time!

    March 14 - 15: the movie Annie will be playing. I remember this received good reviews.

    March 21 - 22: Night at the Museum - Secret of the Tomb. I saw this with my son and he really enjoyed it. I thought it was pretty funny too. It was nostalgic to see Robin Williams in it.

    March 28 - 29: The Book of Life which is an animated film with the voices of Diego Luna, Zoe Saldana and Channing Tatum.

    The MJR Movie Theatre is located at 8200 Murphy Drive in Brighton, behind Home Depot. If you are taking I-96, you should get off at exit 145 (Grand River Avenue). The movie theatre is located in the Brighton Town Square Shopping Center.

    I have always found this movie theatre clean, the popcorn fresh and tasty and the employees very professional and friendly. Don't forget to ask for your free refill on drinks and popcorn. If you a regular movie goer, I encourage you to sign up for their Rewards program where you can earn free popcorn, drinks and even free movie tickets.

    I love to go hiking at Brighton Rec State Park. There are two hiking trails in the woods - one is the yellow trail ("Kahchin") that is approximately 2 miles long and the longer blue trail that is about 6 miles long. You will find it very peaceful and usually not that crowded. There are some hills but very do-able. You will get a good workout. Bikes are not allowed on these trails. There is the "Torn Shirt Trail" for mountain bikers and is challenging. Torn Shirt is over 5 miles long.

    Brighton Rec is located off Bishop Lake Road; east of Chilson Road, south of Brighton Road and west of Bauer Road. I recommend taking Chilson Road to Bishop Lake Road as Bishop Lake Road is a dirt road and very bumpy. The park is closer to Chilson Road than Bauer. Brighton Rec is convenient to Pinckney, Hamburg Twp, Howell , Genoa Twp, Brighton and points beyond. I encourage you to get outside and visit Brighton Rec!

    Kids may want to try the Naz Skate Park in Brighton, which is an indoor skateboarding park located behind the Brighton Nazarene Church. It is off of Brighton Road, east of Bauer Road and west of downtown Brighton. It is almost across from Brighton High School. Their address is 7669 Brighton Road, Brighton MI 48116.

    I love that admission is free for the week if kids attend one of their SK8 churches on Saturday.
    I also appreciate that they have different hours on Saturday based on the grade of the child so that the high schoolers are not skateboarding with the younger kids on Saturdays. The younger kids go in the morning; the middle school kids from 12:00 - 3:30 pm and the high school kids after that. On Thursdays, they have all ages from 4:00 - 8:00 pm and Fridays from 4:00 - 10:00 pm. Don't forget to complete an annual waiver for your child!

    They have a lot of ramps there and also allow scooters inside the Naz Skate Park. Helmets are required (which as a mother I appreciate). Helmets are available for rent also. Kids can buy food and drinks while there such as pizza and slushie drinks. Don't be concerned if your child comes out of there with blue lips!

    They have games kids can play if they need a break from skateboarding like ping pong, video games and more. They promote a drug-free environment. This is a great way for your child to make new friends!

    What an absolute jewel Oaken Transformations Sculpture and Poetry Walk is for Brighton, MI., Howell MI, and Livingston County. It is free to the public and is located on the property of, and is accessed through the waiting room of Dr. Fredric L. Bonine DDS, MS, PC. It consists of a beautiful short nature trail with thought provoking and meditative poetry and sculptures along the way. You can walk it in 15 minutes and it will be a nice relaxing interlude in your day. But I would recommend picking a nice cool balmy day and take several hours to sit on benches along the way to contemplate, meditate, or pray in whatever path or tradition that quiets and silences your mind and gives you meaning, purpose, and peace. This is one short journey that could help give your life's journey a deeper and more conscious meaning. In my video I did not include close ups of any sculpture or poetry out of respect for intellectual property rights, (I am a Realtor... All about property rights). But I have included a link to their website just above the video that has pictures of some of the sculptures and other info; like address, hours, and contact info.

    Once you walk into the Ice House, you know there is some serious hockey going on here. Walking through the lobby you will hear not only English being spoken, but French and Russian as well. Players come from all over the United States, Canada and Russia to play in tournaments here. The Ice House also offers lessons and leagues for all ages and levels.

    If you plan on sitting by the rink, bring a jacket! You can warm up with a drink in the restaurant at the top of the stairs. You won't miss any of the game because there are seats that overlook the three rinks below. On your way out, you can do some hockey shopping at the store in the lobby.

    I am proud to be a part of this community. Brighton High School was ranked # 5 in the State this past year academically. In addition to academics, we have so much more to offer. The Center of Performing Arts sold out this winter with the production of Grease. Sports draws the community out with the brand new football field an amazing Pom team. Watch a short clip of the fantastic Brighton Pom Team.

    The Brighton area is fairly easy to navigate through. The whole town is pretty much based on Grand River which goes straight through it! Grand River is one of the biggest main roads throughout Southeast Michigan. The best part of it being in Brighton is that it rarely gets backed up and you can get where you need to be in a timely fashion without having to worry about too much traffic .But like most places it does have its slow times.

    Grand River is accessible throughout all of Brighton and will be the main road you drive on to get to the place you need to be. From the movies, to the grocery store, every huge location in Brighton is accessible through Grand River.

    Living in Brighton since I was five there are so many things to appreciate. One aspect as an adult, is definitely the location. You can hop on an expressway and be in Ann Arbor, Detroit, or East Lansing which has its advantages for work or entertainment.

    Enjoy a cup of coffee with your free sample of bread. The staff is very friendly and loves to talk about the downtown Brighton area. Stop by and try my favorite the Reuben sandwich on fresh rye bread. Top it off with a fresh baked mint chocolate chip cookie.
