Summer is ALMOST here! I am ready? Are you?
There is nothing better than heading to the Jones Beach Boardwalk for LIVE entertainment with your family on a beautiful summer day. The line-up this year will not disappoint and there is something for everyone.
The planned “Live at the Shell” schedule includes music from some amazing artists and bands, family entertainment, movie nights and so much more! The fun begins Saturday, June 24th and goes until Sunday, September 3rd, 2017.
If you are looking to do something with your entire family this Christmas season then head to Jones Beach for their Holiday Lights Spectacular.
“From November 20th through January 3rd you can immerse yourself in the holiday spirit with over 2.5 miles of holiday scenery that makes this the most wonderful time of the year. With over 150 light displays, Holiday Lights Spectacular creates a magical winter wonderland on Long Island.”
One of my very best Momee friend’s, Nikki headed to the Jones Beach Holiday Light Show again this year with her family and shared her photos and review with us. She says, “young or old you will enjoy seeing the light show while tuning into their radio station that has Christmas music playing. This event will be sure get you and your family into the Christmas Spirit.”
Shop at Mini Monet in Sayville to buy these great Handmade Gifts by Michelle Brand.

Nature, colors, patterns, people and the ocean are her biggest inspiration.Art that interests her most is oil painting, watercolors and metal smithing /enamel Jewelry.”
Bringing your family to the beach for the day has to be planned out. Kids need a lot of stuff and there are some great products out there that can make the beach day so much easier. A local Momee friend asked me to come up with this list and I thought it was a great idea for a post.
Momee Friend Nicole, “Now that summer is coming here (and I have 3 kids) I’ve been searching the internet for a “list” of all the cool, must have accessories For example, I have a pop up tent for the kids that I LOVE! I’ve also seen this collapsable wagon that is so sturdy kids can sit in! I was just wondering if you did a blog like this or would mind accepting the challenge of such a difficult task! LOL! With 3 kids, the beach can take as much planning as a mini vacation!”
Here is a list I came up with:
Long Island is fun filled especially outdoors.
I decided to make these fun pages for little ones to take with them outdoors so they can search for common things in those areas. (Such as your neighborhood, farm, beach and local playground).
These pages will help young children learn to recognize, spell, and know common objects and animals that are outdoors.
Not only is this a fun activity to take on the go but when you get home you can talk about it and color the page as well.

Get outside with your toddler and explore! Mia and I love to go exploring for treasures.
Whether it is at the park, beach or even in our own backyard. A terrific activity that helps with object recognition and gets us out and about exercising.
Look around for animals and colors too. Play “I spy with my little eye … “ with your child as well.
Gathering treasures for a child is exciting and each object found does become a “treasure” once they are found.
Granted these are not your typical “treasures” but they are typically found right here on Long Island.
We love to go to the beach and search for seashells
