Introducing Dezerland Park: Your NEW Favorite South Florida Birthday Party Venue

As you know, I’m always looking for the newest, coolest places to host birthday parties. And coolest means both awesome AND with air-conditioning, especially during the summer months!

2018’s BEST South Florida Halloween Events for Kiddos & Parents

I’m pretty sure Halloween is the best mommy blogger holiday EVER. We get to write about Boca Raton Halloween events, decorating, cooking (PUMPKINS!), costumes and showcase adorable photos of our kids dressed up as all sorts of cute things.

Pre-baby, #modernbocadad and I used to rock the “couples costumes”. Oh yes! Our great friends throw an epic Halloween party each year, so I always felt like we really needed to work hard to come up with a great outfit! I’m pretty confident we succeeded.

So you’re moving to Boca Raton! Or perhaps you’ve re-located recently and are scratching your head, wondering what to do, where to go and who to see in our fair city. Well first off…WELCOME! We were in the same boat not too long ago even though this mom personally grew up in Boca Raton.

Now with a happy and adjusted kindergartner, my veteran Boca mom friends and I have some major tips to share with families like you who are new to our area!
