Sure, July (and really, the entire summer season) is all about that non-stop fun in the sun! But let’s admit it, there’s no fun quite like that between a mama and child. And one-on-one time with the littlest love of your life is the stuff memories are made of!
Mommy and Me time is all about learning, growing and sharing those special moments with your child. It’s not as important what you do – just that you take the time to do it! The simplest thing such as a Mommy & Me Park Day can leave a lasting memory on your child forever! When they look back years from now, that fun filled afternoon of giggles and laughter will bring back those smiles you witnessed that afternoon!
Of course, no mini-me date would be complete without snacks! My daughter & I’s latest snack obsession?!! Blue Diamond® Nut-Thins! Made with zero artificial flavors and with real Blue Diamond® Almonds with a crispy, crunchy texture! We just can’t get enough of this delicious wheat & gluten free snack!
My favorite part about Blue Diamond® Nut-Thins are how universal they are! Tasty enough for mama to love, yet not over powering with flavors where the kiddo is too afraid to try! I’m obsessed with all things Pecan, so I tend to reach for those first ;-) The box is also the perfect size to toss in my cooler before hitting up the park! Definitely the perfect snack for all that summer entertainment you have planned.
Blue Diamond® Nut-Thins are also a cracker dunkers dream! As I mentioned above, Blue Diamond® Nut-Thins have just enough flavor, which makes them the perfect option for dips! My go-to dip? My world famous 30 Second French Onion Dip! So easy to make, you can whip it up park-side at a picnic table while your little one is having a miss independent moment on the slide!
