Ever since I was pregnant (and several of my friends were pregnant around the same time), I had dreams of weekend playdates with our kids. They would involve story hour at the library, lunch at somewhere fun (picnic? somewhere with a play area?) and time at a playground. Sadly, our playdates with friends and their children don’t happen as often as we’d like.
We have time coming up and I’m taking a day off work so we can give our boy a super fun day with his super cool parents. Our plans at the moment include a zoo outing and lunch. If we have time and the weather cooperates, we’ll hit up a park so we can swing and play in the dirt (and pick up sticks because our boy LOVES to pick up sticks!) On our way home (or maybe after dinner), we’ll visit the local ice cream shop because as much as our boy loves to pick up sticks, he also loves ice cream. For a toddler, the day should be pretty fantastic.
In a dream world, our epic playdate would involve a playground and dirt and sticks and friends. Throw in some Lego-time and maybe a side of Elmo, and you have my child’s dream day.
On April 27, Hyundai is hosting an Epic Playdate Weekend in Santa Barbara and you have a chance to win a trip for four to join in on the fun. The weekend will involve so many fun (and popular) bloggers (think Dooce, Mighty Girl, Oh Happy Day, Oh Joy, Say Yes To Hoboken, Girls Gone Child, BoingBoing, and How To Be A Dad) camping on the beach and hosting epic workshops for kids, e.g., ice cream sundae bar, paint fight, kids’ photography class, hula-hooping workshop and more. This is an invite-only event and it sounds like it’s going to be a blast!
