Summer can be such a magical time for kids. From popsicles to pool parties to outdoor movies, there’s so much fun to be had. Fortunately for us parents, it can be just as exciting for us too, with summer barbecues, concerts in the park, and late night strolls when the air is still warm. Sierra Moms loves to take advantage of summer, as well, bringing moms and children together to enjoy what the season has to offer.
Members of Sierra Moms enjoy many types of children’s playdates during the summer. Those looking to soak up the sun might enjoy a picnic at the park, a morning walk and talk, or one of our area’s many splash pads. Those looking to escape the heat might visit the library for story time, join others for ice cream or frozen yogurt, or find an indoor playground. In addition to destination playdates,many of our members enjoy hosting playdates at their homes, where kids might get to swim, create art projects, or stretch their imagination with free play.
Summer also always features Sierra Moms’ annual Summer Splash party at the Folsom Aquatic Center. For one night, Sierra Moms members get to enjoy the pool at this private event, where dinner is provided for all members and kids are treated to ice cream. Sierra Moms members have the opportunity to attend four different quarterly parties each year, and this is always a favorite.
Summer is such a great reason to get out of the house, meet new people, and enjoy the company of others. Sierra Moms gives moms and kids an opportunity to do just that. Whether you are looking for friends for your kids or for more mom friends, or whether you are looking for kid events or mom events, Sierra Moms has it. We hope to see you at a playdate soon!
