Our Friday Playdate at Sugar Sand Park + Joey's Bakery

Today was so much fun! 
The girls and I met up with my friend, Jereann, and her two kids, Sophia and Dominic. 

We first stopped at Sugar Sand Park in Boca Raton to check out the "Children's Science Explorium", the carousel, and the surrounding play areas. 

Ava loved the area that had these rubber balls that would "float" as the air from the bottom would shoot them up when you would throw them into that area. 

Her friend, Sophia, liked it too. 

Making friends

Later came the carousel...

So, let me preface these next few photos...

Basically, there was this "1 adult per child rule" for smaller kids. Basically, one of us moms had to stay with the infants that were sleeping in the strollers while we took turns taking our toddlers on the carousel.
Ava didn't understand this rule when I told her that we have to wait our turn to go on because mommy has to watch the babies and that Sophia's mommy wasn't allowed to go on with both of them.

The Meltdown begins....





Fun times...

Then, it was Ava's turn! 
Happy again! 

The life of a toddler... 
Meltdown to pure joy within 1 minute. 
Well, that kind of sounds like my life as a mother of a toddler too... haha 

After the park, we drove up to  Boynton Beach to have lunch and do some cupcake taste testing at Joey's Bakery for Sophia's upcoming 3rd birthday party.

I can't stand the cuteness with the hand holding.

Thanks for inviting us today, Sophia! Ava always has a blast with you. 

Soon, Elle and Dominic will be old enough to to join the fun...

Elle is almost 3 months old already. Time is flying! 

Well that's it! 
Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Elle Meets the Beach

Hi there. Hope everyone had a nice Memorial Day weekend.
Here are some pictures from Elle's 1st time at the beach. Elle stayed under the shade of our tent the entire time so it wasn't very eventful for a 3 month old. However, our 2 year old daughter, Ava, had a blast! She made sand castles with her uncles and played along the shore with her two grandmas.

Our New Delivery Service for Organic Produce!

Today has been so much fun and it has nothing to do with shots of tequila for Cinco de Mayo...ha

We received our first delivery of organic fruits and vegetables right to our doorstep. Today was the launch date for a new local business called Fresh Life Organics

 Once I looked into it, Mark and I were sold on the idea. We loved that we are supporting a small, local business and....did I mention there is NO delivery fee for this awesome service!? You just pay for the produce and that's it. 

What is even better is that you can be involved in what goes into your weekly box of produce. For example, if you'd like less zucchini but more carrots, you just reply to their weekly (changing) menu email and state your preferences if you have any to adjust. 

Also, if you are not home on Tuesdays at the time of delivery, you can let them know where they can place your box of produce (ie: On the side of your home, in your carport, by the rocking chairs...whatever!) There is also a small ice pack inside the box so that your produce comes nicely chilled to keep freshness while it waits for you. Also, if you have a cooler that you'd rather them deliver it to, you can place it outside in a location where they find. You can let them know this in your "special instructions" email for your weekly order. 

The choices are basic and easy to navigate.
 (But I can bet you that they will be expanding their options with time which is exciting!) 
There is a "regular" and "large" size box. 
You can also choose whether you would like "JUST veggies" or "JUST fruits" / or a "MIX of both". We chose the Large Box of Mixed Fruits and Veggies. 

With all this personalization, free delivery, supporting local business, and eating organic - how is this NOT a great idea?! 

This week's menu for our order: the Large box of Fruits and Veggies.

I got to meet the owner herself! She is super nice and even had a few seconds to chat.
I thought that she was so friendly. She even asked what "my story" is... I told her a little about myself recently completing my health coaching program and how I hope to work with local businesses like hers one day once I can begin health coaching others.

It is awesome to now have a direct relationship with where some my family's food is coming from. It was great meeting you, Jessica. I look forward to working with you in the future once I get some more time from the kiddos. 

Our order! Super fresh.
I could not be happier. 

There you have it. 
The McGuire Family is happy to be part of the Fresh Life Organics family.
