Fun 4 Gator Kids Blog

Fun 4 Gator Kids, the premiere resource of information of places to go and things to do with kids in the Gainesville, Florida area.

Stacy Fournier stays busy as a writer and director of marketing for Fun4GatorKids.com. But she does her most important work as a mommy of two mess-making, lip-gloss wearing, always-snacking little girls ages 9 and 4 (4 and three-quarters, to be exact). Her strengths are kissing boo-boos, building blanket forts, making silly faces, turning into the tickle monster and playing Don't Break the Ice. Her Fun4GatorKids blog will touch on everything from mommyhood to family-friendly places around town. Please feel free to comment! Enjoy!
