Juju’s First Zoo Day!

Hello Fellow Juju Lovers! We had a few days off from daycare this week so we made an impromptu trip to the Elmwood Park Zoo in Norristown, PA. Juju had never been to the zoo and as summer quickly starts to wind down, I wanted to try to get some fun stuff in before the weather changes.

Splish Splashing At The Spray Park!

Sunday in the Park! Most weekends we love to get up early make coffee at home and head out to the park after breakfast. We have a favorite park but didn’t have much time and decided to head to the park around the corner from us. Plot twist… I totally forgot this park was remodeled last year and had been upgraded to a SPRAY PARK! How lucky are we to have a fairly off the radar spray park within walking distance from my house?! Much to our delight when we
