<p>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!</p>

<p>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:</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Gumbo Limbo Nature Center (a friend of mine still works there):</p>
<p><a href="http://www.gumbolimbo.org/" target="_blank">http://www.gumbolimbo.org/</a></p>
<p> </p>
<p>Busch Wildlife Sanctuary up in Jupiter (kind of a drive from Delray):<br><a href="http://www.buschwildlife.com/" target="_blank">http://www.buschwildlife.com/</a></p>
<p> </p>
<p>While you are up there check out the Marinelife Center in Juno Beach:</p>
<p><a href="http://marinelife.org/" target="_blank">http://marinelife.org/</a></p>
<p> </p>
<p>There are some neat natural areas throughout the county, check out Delray Oaks (I used to manage it):</p>

<p>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: <a href="http://palmsbirthhouse.com/" target="_blank">http://palmsbirthhouse.com/</a>  they also do yoga and massage there).</p>
<p> </p>
<p>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!).</p>

<p>Thanks for these links! They look great. We've been to FL in the summer before, so we know what we're in for. Lots of swimming should help, right?</p>
