Okay Mamas, June 4th is right around the corner and we should confirm our get together in GG Park. Here are some things to think about and decide:<br><br>
1. I was thinking about meeting at 1:00<br>
2. Meeting near the picnic area or the playground.<br>
3. Everyone is welcome!<br>
4. Bring your own lunch.<br><br>
If anyone has a better idea then by all means let me know, I'm just throwing ideas out there! Also, if we want to meet at the picnic area then we need to reserve a spot so that will need to be decided very shortly. I'm looking forward to seeing all the Bay Area mamas out at GG Park!

uh, my daughter naps right around 1 (if she naps) what about a mid/late afternoon time, like 3, or a morning time, like 10?<br><br>
(if everyone else likes 1, I'm cool, we'll work it out...)

DD naps around the same time, but will probably sleep on the way to GG park regardless of what time it is. 3:00 will work just fine for us. Any preferance to where in GG park? Looking forward to meeting you!

Uh <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/bag.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Bag">: I don't know Golden Gate Park nearly as well as I should...but the huge playground near the top of the park might not be great because it'll be super crowded, and we won't be able to hang out and track our kids, so maybe a less obvious place? I'll try to scout around.

How about the Arboretum? It's easy to meet at the main entrance, and there are plenty of grassy nice areas to run around, or sit and relax.

oceanbaby, that's a great idea I know a lot of other mamas suggested the arboretum.<br><br><br>
Meet at the Arboretum at around 11:00 - 12:00 for lunch and the rest is up to us! Anyone second the idea?

sounds good to me! Myabe dd would take a nap at the park?<br><br>
Anyway, if you actually go inside the arboretum, there's a nice huge tree and a meadow, which would be a nicer place than right outside the entrance.<br><br>
Where's all those mamas who signed on for this several months ago? Looking forward to meeting people in person.

The arboretum sounds perfect!!!! 1 works for us. The kids will sleep on the long drive up there.

Oh, I definitely mean that we should go inside. I just thought that the entrance is an easy place to meet up initially.<br><br>
Did we ever decide on a final time?

it might be good to pick a spot where we're going to be the whole time, so people can come later or whatever...cause for most of us being on time can be sort of spotty, depending on naps and what not, right? and then there';s traffic, or public transportation issues...

I agree! Also, I think meeting somewhere between 11 and 12 will work for us. If others want to come later then that's ok.

11-12 sounds good to me too. Afternoons can get a bit windy and sometimes foggy, so this earlier time is better I think. Are we now meeting at the entrance of the Arboretum? Potluck?<br>
This will be fun to meet all of you!<br>
Dd and I will be there, Dh is out of town that weekend.

I think we should meet inside the arboretum and bring our own lunch. And I agree on the 11-12 time to meet. If others want to come leter that is fine, but we should shoot for 11-12.

radish, i was wondering where you were! I remembered you were interested in coming and were going to post in diapering. This thread was in TAO, but was moved here. I hope the TAO mamas look here! Looking forward to seeing some bay area mamas!

Hoping to bring the whole family, we'll be driving in from Sacramento. It may end up being closer to 12 for us...
