The Week Ahead for South Florida 2/12/15

Spanish River Sports Complex in Boca Raton

Spanish River Sports Complex in Boca RatonThe weather is cool and I know everyone is looking for playgrounds.  Check out the Best Playground category under Events and Reviews for some of our favorite South Florida and London Parks.

My pick of the week is the Spanish River Sports Complex in Boca Raton.  Bring your skates, scooters, bikes and running shoes to this picturesque park.  This is not my

favorite park in the deep summer because there is not a ton of shade here.  Being that it is going to be in the 50’s this week, that won’t bother anyone at all this weekend.

The Week Ahead for South Florida 1/29/14

Entrance to WB Harry Potter Studio Tour London

I have been feeling the pull of London this week, can’t wait to go back although I don’t think I have a choice.  Those of you who are Harry Potter fans should check out my review of the Harry Potter Studio Tours in London!  If you are headed over the pond anytime soon, this is a must see!  It is an amazing place, even if you aren’t a potter head, but have an interest in movie making.  The detail of the sets and artistry that goes into them is nothing less than incredible.

 

 

My Little Pony Friendship Train ReviewI thought I would re-share the video review of the My Little Pony Train.  My daughter got this Christmas before last and she has been playing with regularly ever since.  I stepped on it last night in the middle of the night and seriously it rivals Lego’s for pain!  She has no idea how close she came to losing this thing.  I don’t think she would ever forgive me for throwing it out though.

The Week Ahead for South Florida 9/4/14

Brass Rubbing in St Martins Crypt

I hope everyone had a great Labor Day weekend!  I know we did.  We did just well…….nothing, and it was fabulous.

My pick of the week:
Fun Day on the Runway Event DetailsFun Day on the Runway.  I have never seen an event like this, but it the flyer says that you will be able to hang out on the new runway at Fort Lauderdale Airport with  tours of the elevated 8,000 foot runway, aviation exhibits, entertainment, and children’s activities.  If it’s not too hot out this should be a pretty unique event!

Mommy & Me Yoga at Fern Forest.
I sure wish they did this when my daughter was little!  We used to go to their Nature Tots Classes and loved them!

St. Martins in the Fields & Cafe in the CryptEarlier in the week I shared a video made by me rather talented hubby of us doing a brass rubbing in the crypt of a church in London.  We found it totally by accident and it was great little detour.

The London Eye
Big Ben

We are a little sad this evening, this will be the last post from London!  We have had such a great time, wondering London, visiting parks, but most of all spending time with Nana & Papa.  We have invaded their home, run their washing machine constantly, eaten all their food and are grateful to have such great people in our lives!

It was lovely to see my daughter get to know her grandparents better, and I will never forget how she and Nana can sit and giggle together.
