The New Orleans Area Playdates

We were so thrilled for the opportunity to host 3 separate playdates on both the Northshore and Southshore this summer. Each day offered something special. We saw Hook, the Ice Queen and even learned a forward roll! Palm Tree Playground hosted two of the three playdates and was the perfect setting to escape the summer heat and relax. The children were entertained by When You Wish Entertainment whose characters are truly the best in New Orleans and the countless play structures!

On the Northshore, we were so impressed by the setup at The Little Gym. The kids enjoyed doing flips, conquering balancing feats and just plain having fun. It was a safe place for them to explore their physical abilities!

The Food

Because we know that dinner can be stressful, we were so thrilled to bring some of our favorite family restaurants to the Southshore events! We would like to thank our food sponsors for their participation. I know that I left ready for bed/bath and thrilled that we were all well fed and happy!

On the Northshore, we “beat the heat” with popsicles and water provided by The Little Gym along with sweet treats from Nothing Bundt Cakes and adorable themed cookies from Whimsical Cake Designs and Cookies and refreshing Fest Cola!

Charity of Choice

We were so humbled by the generosity of our readers. Second Harvest Food Bank was able to collect a sizable donation from each event on the Southshore, totaling well over 250 pounds of food for families in need. We also made a generous donation to the Food Bank of Covington from the donations received on the Northshore. We truly appreciate the moms for remembering to bring something for those in need, and together we’re also making New Orleans an easier place to live.
