Is there a group of ladies that get together (from here) on a regular basis?

I'd love to set up an August playdate somewhere in CT .. other ladies from MA/RI are invited too, .. if you wanna make the drive!

Anyone interested?

Let's see where everyone's from and we'll pick a 1/2 point!

We would be game for a playdate! I work 4 days though, so if it was on a work day for me, it might be my hubby with the kids, if no one minds.

i was thinking somewhere a bit closer than mystic, but if that's where everyones near.. then that's okay too!

any other CT mama's out there looking to have a playdate!?

OTmama, maybe we could do it on the day you were off? But if not, dad's are always welcome too!

I am in Bethel. I am willing to drive, but Mystic is a bit further than would be fun for us.

I agree - Mystic is probably too much of a haul for us too.

I am off on Wednesdays by the way, and if that worked for the others, I would certainly love to meet all of you!

Either Lyman's Orchard in Middlefield or Belltown Orchard in Glastonbury would be fun for us! They both do unofficial organic/integrated pest management so they aren't as chemically as some orchards, as far as I know. We're in Middletown and we'd be up for anything within a 30-minute drive.

The 19th at 10am works for us.

Are we going to Middlefield or Glastonbury? I've never been to either, but we're closer to Glastonbury so I vote for that one. Either is fine with me though.

I'd love to meet some like-minded mamas around here! I'm in Salem and either orchard would work for me!

We would love to come but 10 is SO early for us, especially with an hour long drive. If 10 works best for everyone else don't change it just for me but I thought I would mention it. either day works for us.

Okay. So it's on the 19th for sure!

Time.. 10 seems okay some would like later, would pushing it back to 11am be better?

Where.. to the people that really want to come/which one are you closer to?

Okay. Let's talk about it!
