play date

Santa will be at the library on the 17th of DEC, at 10:30 and 1:30. We could meet up there for a play date. Let me know what time you guys would like to go. Also I was wondering if you guys would like to do a play date this week on Wednesday at the church again. We could bring crafts of our own again that we would like to finish or even do the gingerbread house making like Shara suggested. Or do nothing and sit and talk while the kids play.

Shopping @ the mall?

Need some time to shop at the mall before Christmas? How about a play date at the play area at the mall. Some mothers stay and watch the kids, while the others shop. Then switch off?? Lets decide on a date:) I love the mall, yet not with children:)

play date at the church

Thanks to Becca for talking to the bishop about using the church. And because of that, we are going to have a play date at the church tomorrow Tuesday 11-24-09. It will be in the nursery at 10:30 a.m. and if you would like you can bring a craft to do while your children are playing. Also, if you want to bring a snack to share, you can. Hope to see you there.

Ideas for this winter

Here is some information I got off the city web site. I thought they would be good ideas for a play date. We can schedule something for next week if everyone would like but we might have to change the day we do if we decide to do one of these. I put the ice skating one just for an idea. I also put a link to where I found these at the bottom of the page if you want more info. Just copy and paste into your browser.

When it's cold outside and the kids are bored, bring them to the play group at the Recreation Center on Tuesday and Friday mornings. It's only a dollar a kid and they can play in a big indoor space. We have mats on the floor with balls of all sizes, hula hoops, a slide, sit n spin, hippity hops, tunnels and more. The kids love it. They can go crazy! Parents can sit on the side lines or join their kids and play. It's a good activity for the kids during these cold winter months.
This program will run from October 13, 2009 through March 2010.

TIME: 9:00am - 11:00am

AGE: 6 and Under

CANCEL PARTY (Sorry such short notice)

I hope nobody is too disappointed. I thought we could start right now to plan a Christmas party with yummy food and games. Let me know what you think.

walk on wednesday

Its a late start up for the play group. I think everyone has been busy or sick. But were going to have a meet up on Wednesday of this week(the 21st). I thought we could meet up at the church about 11:00 to walk to the river and maybe feed the ducks. Its suppose to be sunny and about 56 f. So dress kinda warm. If the weather changes, like it usually does, and it rains we can meet at my house and the kids can play.

Monday, September 14, 2009


Is everyone good with changing playgroup to Wednesdays @ 10:30? We also want to go to the zoo again before the weather changes to cold. How is Wednesday the 23rd to start the new change? Any other suggestions are welcomed!

Hey everyone I got a list of show times for the Edwards free movies this summer for children from sis. Rachel walker. (thank you by the way) they are totally free for children and parents. We are going to go next Tuesday for playgroup. I think it starts at 10:00a.m. if I'm wrong will someone please correct me. the tale of desperaux and kung fu panda are playing. You can go to either movie. We can just meet at Edwards unless someone would like to carpool let us know and we can all figure out who's driving. I'll put the rest of the movies and show times on a later post for everyone so they know.

I'd be okay with doing it at a members house too. We can do it at my house if everyone wants to...we have plenty of toys.

Wednesday, May 20, 2009

I'm ok with changing the date to go to the zoo. If we go to a members house that would be fun. I voted for the zoo but I'll change my vote as well, but really whatever works for everyone I'm good with too.

Tuesday the 26th

I know we all said the Zoo for this week, yet I changed my vote. Sorry I really would love to go and you all can still go, I just was going to be longer in SLC than I had originally planned. My best friend passed away and the funeral will be on Tuesday. So I was thinking we could change it to Tuesday the 2ND of June? If not that is not a big deal, we can always do the Zoo plenty of other times. I just wanted to let you know why the vote had changed. Right now it is tied with 2 for the zoo and 2 for a members house. Or any other suggestions?
