Antelope Canyon & Horse Shoe Bend , Arizona

Over the Memorial Day long weekend, we decided to visit Upper Antelope Canyon. We planned to drop in and spend some time at the Grand Canyon on the way and then drive on to Page, Arizona. This little town is perched over 4000 ft above sea level. Very pretty and well lit up as the Glen Canyon Dam and the Colorado river are just a stones throw away. It was a little windy with a slight nip in the air.

Mommy \ Daddy & Baby Summer Event

This is all about the Mommy n Me program that takes place every 2nd Tuesday at Park Valencia , Santana Row and the 2nd Wednesday in West Gate shopping Mall near Ross. If you are a new mom looking for friends, or just wanting to get out and enjoy the warm weather with your baby, or let your toddler experience something new this year, then this is for you.. Keep reading on and share it with someone you know or would be happy to get to know!

Each month there are new activities planned for the moms and babies. From face painting, to the melodious and rhythmic music of Andy Z to Halloween, Christmas or baking events or the talking parrot show ,it has something for everyone. Free balloons for each kid ( till supplies last ) craft activities like making a picture frame or just dancing and lazing around to even taking pictures with famous characters like Cat in the hat or even listening to stories.

This year the Kick off is on May 8th. Save the date for some fun activities for your kids with characters like Curious George, Clifford the Big Red Dog and the Happy Birds Show and more. Get the days program at the desk near the stage area. The activities differ from year to year. Please check the website for more details.

My Thoughts :

Kids love face painting and the lady does a great job!. They are available just opposite the park from 10-12 pm.
Carry some some snacks, water, sunscreen and a wide brimmed hat for yourselves.
Don't forget your camera or video. You will treasure these pics for years to come of your kids in action!
You can opt for reminders for the monthly events so you don't miss out on any upcoming event.

Here are some pictures from the events I attended the last two years. I hope Mommy and Baby ( even Daddy too ) have a great summer together.
