Since I'm leaving soon I figured I'd kick off the August thread...and pick up where we left off today about a beach day for the playgroup! I believe we talked about next Monday, 8/10......which I have just as I am typing realized is a Rhode Island state holiday (I was SHOCKED when I moved here as a native Californian and discovered that VJ day is a state holiday here, but oh well) so the beach may be totally packed....so maybe we should pick a different day? Or we can say the heck with it and just go! We had said Horseneck at 9:30 (in Westport Point, MA for anyone who hasn't been...it's easy to get to and about 35 min from Providence). Thoughts? I really like the idea of a playgroup trip to the beach...

We don't want you to leave

Glad you caught that about the holiday. If we all get there early enough it may not be too bad, it doesn't make THAT much of a difference to me, whatever the consensus is.

Is it a holiday in MA too?
We will be in NH so can't join in the beach fun. However I don't know that I would want to take my littlest one to the beach yet anyway. Hope it's great!
So glad to see you all yesterday!
See you guys on thursday I hope.

i don't want you to leave either, caitlin

i bet since we are going to the beach so early in the morning, it won't matter that much. and no, i don't think it's a holiday in mass. i think rhode island is the only state that celebrates vj day, actually

Well I guess consensus is we're on! A Victory Day Playgroup trip to the beach it is. Let's plan to meet at about 9:30 at Horseneck Beach in Westport Point, MA. Let's try to plop our blankets down near lifeguard station 8-- this way we have some hope of actually meeting up and also that's the one closest to the nice new bathroom building and ramp
Looking forward to it!

Feeling lame for not going but Gabe woke up at 5am and didn't fall back asleep until almost 7, then waking up for good at 9. He is usually my alarm clock but today he's been fired.
I'm tired from all this up and down latley at night (trying to get used to the 10 trips to the bathroom).

Have a great time at the beach ladies I will miss playing in the waves!
Are we still meeting on Wed and Thurs??

Yes, yes! I was thinking maybe trying the water park on Waterman on Wednesday- unless someone wants to do something else?
Thursday... well, you know where we go on Thursday

I'd love to-- this heat is killing me! Where is the water park on Waterman?

Also, anyone who can come to playgroup on Thursday-- I have a bunch of girl clothes from 6 mos to 24 mos to give away and I will bring stuff for people to check out. I *also* have a lot of bottles and stuff if anyone who is pumping needs them, and a used Medela Pump-in-Style and I'd love to give them to someone who needs it that I know before I make my 10th trip to Salvation Army...So big big free box on Thursday at Humbolt!

It's at the end of Ives St. and on Wickenden. If the water things aren't turned on foxpoint park is right next to it... oh! and I just remembered, Cradle to Crayons is at 10 at the library across the street today. So if all else fails we can go into the AC across the street.

I know it's overcast but I'm so happy it's cooler! We'll see you all at the waterpark...Gabe Loves Foxpoint so either one is fantastic!

Caitlin: I'm pretty sure I want that breast pump. We have a lot of family that will want to "help" feed the new baby. I know for the first few months it will be breast exclusively but after that I would love to have the option of a pump!:

hmmm- rain. If everyone wants to come here instead today that would be awesome. Going to jump in the shower and maybe try baking some Amish friendship bread sans instant pudding.

I just found this recipe that leaves out instant pudding- if anyone else is interested.

Sarah, we'd love to come over, if you're cool with that. I will bring my various "free box" items -- including the pump, Stephanie!-- and whatever people don't want/need will go to Salvation Army today. I can't wait to pass it all on to others !

I think we'll opt for errands. My crowd drives me crazy even here and oldest one is in a rare mood:
If it brightens up we may try the park a little later.

I'm happy to take the girls clothes Caitlyn, if no one else is....maybe I'll stop by and check...otherwise don't let me stop you from unloading them at SA
