Long time no see! Â Amy and Â I have recently been busy with family, work, and life in general so weÂ haven’t had the pleasure of posting much on NJPlaygrounds. Â We do miss you guys, and being in the playground scene, but alas life is dynamic. Â So…. there is one thingÂ weÂ do look forward to every September and that is our Mommy and Me Event at Imagine That!!! in Florham Park. This year I (Sheila) will be there!
Every year, we have a table, make a fantastic basket, and get to be next to our friends, Sandra and Kim, from NJ Kids on the Go. Â Kim Â always has a great giveaway going on, and lots of stuff to populate your calendar. Â We love meeting moms, ones we’ve met before and some new ones, and there is a fun raffle at the end, where you can win one of the vendors’ baskets. Â The best part is as you travel, the kids can explore the museum. Â Imagine That!!! has always been one of our favorite places to go since the boys were young, it’s one of the best places for pretend play, with so many exhibits and opportunities for creativity! Â Also, Jason Didner and the Jungle Gym Jam performs at the Puppet Theater! Check his song snippet below!
SoÂ if you are free, make sure you come and join us and stop by and say hi. Details from Imagine That, more here!!!:
