Feelin' Hot Hot Hot!

Here comes a heatwave!  In Boston that means one thing - SPRAYGROUNDS!  For wet fun in the sun, check out this list of free spraygrounds throughout Boston & all of Massachusetts.

To be the cutest thing at the sprayground, we suggest you dress your little girl in one of these vintage inspired bathing suits by Dagmar Daley:

Now, the sad truth is there just isn't the same selection of over the top cuteness when it comes to baby boy swimsuits - but these little European style swim trunks from Zara will set your guys apart from the crowd.

Go Barefoot for Father's Day!

We know you're busy -so -we've made it easy for you by picking out a few special books for your little one to give their daddy from Barefoot Books.  If you live in the Boston area, make an afternoon of it and go check out their studio/store in Concord; they always have a lively schedule of events.  A sweet way to personalize these is by bringing out the paint and having your little one put their hand print inside the book with a sweet note for dad.
