My Class will be in the local town paper!

Today during my morning class at the park we had stopped for one of our stations and where in the middle of our cadio drill and I see a woman with a rather large camera hustling over to our group. I prepared everyone and asked if anyone minded being photographed. No one was opposed to it so when she approached I let her ask ;) She though it was fantastic that we were working out with the babies in toe. She asked us to repeat some jumping jacks and she snapped a bunch of photos. I gave her my card and we moved into our push ups and tricep dips. She stayed and took more pictures.

I was amused by it and at the same time thrilled to be advertised in the Town Crier. Now if I can just find what day we will be in it. I barely ever find time to read papers but I will have to for the next few weeks!

Securing Locations for BePe Stroller Strides Classes

It looks like my hopes of holding classes in Tewksbury and Woburn by next Fall is going to be tweaked a bit. I will be holding classes in Wilmington through the Summer as they are going now.. M-W-F 9:30 AM outdoors and moving indoors in the Fall. We will be using CATZ (Creative Athletic Training Zone) on Concord Street in Wilmington! Pretty cool place for those of you who don't like or can't motivate your selves to use the typical gyms as often as you should. We will be able to keep the same schedule and they are even open to giving the little guys a little free time to play after. they also offer some great nutritional information and courses which I hope to be able to tap into with my group!

My second location is still not completely secured. For the outdoor times, I have spoken with Whole Foods in Woburn and they are happy to have us use their lot/store as a meeting place (if I can sort out a nice quiet place to move to for the classes) and are offering to work with us so that their weekly story times coincide with our classes end time so we can let the kids be a part of it. They mey be offering some mommy type workshops too. Like how to make your own baby food or similar type of themed days.. Also how great is that to get your food shopping done right before heading home!!!! Talk about convenience. I mean shoot I am out, both of the boys are already packed up and with me, what great timing! If that doesn't excite you , they have a cafe area we can all sit and have a snack and a small play area for the kids!

I have talked with Extra Innings (in Woburn) and could work something out possibly for later classes starting at 11:00. I think that is a tad bit late for me since it would end up being a super late lunchtime.

Today I met with Athletic Evolution (in Woburn), they are similar to CATZ but larger and have a bit more to offer,like a mini ice rink, batting cages indoors and gym machines and weights. We may be able to work with them and have use of the space in the mornings during the week. I hope to hear back from them soon.

Next week I will meet with one last place, MK Boxing (also in Woburn),and I hopefully can figure something out after that.

I am looking forward to have this all sorted out and focusing on other areas of the classes~!

Scooper Bowl Fun

Here are a few photos from the Jimmie Fund, Scooper Bowl. I am taking all of the photos so I managed to stay out of the pictures. It was something new to do.. We took the train in (Logan's first ride on a "choo choo".) to Boston and walked to City Hall Plaza. The area was packed and there was no chance of making it in front of the crowds for a taste of Ice cream with a stroller. We smartened up really quickly and realized if we left a few moms with all the strollers a few of us could go grab a bunch of scoops and come back. We managed to try about 10 brands of ice cream and I would guess about 25 flavors. YUMMY, is all I have to say and the lemon gelato was to die for!!!!!! I am looking forward to going back next year.

After we walked to the North End and had a bite to eat at Joe's, right on the water. We got back to the station and waited only about 10 minutes to take the train back home and get the kiddos to bed.
We were all wiped out at the end of the afternoon but it was a great adventure.

Father's Day Crafts

Just wanted to share what a few moms from the Mom's Group I host and I did for Father's Day.

I purchased some stepping Stones Craft kits and we had the babies step in the cemetn mix and the toddler put a hand in. Let it sit for about 30-45 minutes and went back to decorate! They came out so cute. I will share mine.. I had made them with my toddler last year so had to have matching ones to give for the baby this year as well.
Here are some pictures of them before I took them out of the shell and washed them off.
and then a fuzzy photo of Logan's in the garden from last year.

BePe Baby

So BePe has a big craft festival this weekend in Wakefield MA. I have had lots of help with the preparing. My mother and I have been sewing up a storm! I think I have close to 100 pairs of booties and slippers, 25 + bibs, 15 sun hats, 10 Diaper Roll-Ups, Gram's Hand-Knits and some adorable outfits like diaper coves with matching hats and button up shirts for the boys and dresses and sets for girls. Next year I will have more time to prepare. This time around I was invited to two big festivals but would not have had enough time to prepare for both so I had to refuse one. Let's hope this pans out. Other wise I have a ton of stock to store at my house :) Here is a sneak peek at a few of the items coming.
