My Minneapolis, Minnesota family (me, husband, dd age 10, ds age 2) will be staying in the Delray Beach area for a month this summer, end of June - end of July. Would LOVE to find some other folks to have occasional playdates or outings with. Also seeking general advice - where to go, what to do - for families like us (attachment parenting, breastfeeding, etc etc). Thanks mamas!
I am no longer in that area (moved in 2007 to Tallahassee) but as far as things to do while you are there that are kid friendly:
Gumbo Limbo Nature Center (a friend of mine still works there):
Busch Wildlife Sanctuary up in Jupiter (kind of a drive from Delray):
While you are up there check out the Marinelife Center in Juno Beach:
There are some neat natural areas throughout the county, check out Delray Oaks (I used to manage it):
I do recall that there used to be an Attachment Parenting group in Palm Beach County and I liked my LLL meetings there. I am not up to date on any of the AP/bfing resources there though, other than the doulas and midwives I keep in touch with (I am excited because they just opened a birth center in Delray Beach: http://palmsbirthhouse.com/ they also do yoga and massage there).
Good luck and have fun. I grew up in Minnesota and my relatives think it is really hot during June/July and won't visit me, so keep that in mind and try to keep cool (lots of beautiful beaches to visit there!).
