Adding to my campaign for father of the year, I scheduled a play date for my son to play with other babies on Earth Day. Thanks to MeetUp.com I found a group of One Year old babies whose parents organize to help build social skills and make long lasting memories.
The organizer brought soil, seeds, containers, paint and a spinner for the babies to further build their sensory skills. My son had never really played with dirt or paint before during his first year on earth and it really opened up my eyes.
Seeing my boy interact with the other babies and activities at hand really centered my focus and creative passion. I cant explain it, its one of those moments that as a parent you commit to making their life that much better.
Earth Day was a hit & I hope to contribute with my son to the preservation of this planet.
Back in January of this year, NYC in agreement with Mountain Creek & Burton took it to Central Park to teach urban folk how to snowboard and ski for free.
Waivers had to be signed..
The lines filled up very quickly..
Young man by the name of Tommy told me he was very hesitant to try.. he had never tried snowboarding before.
Folks quickly began to ski and take pictures of their children, it was a wonderful event for the whole family
The Mountain Creek staff quickly began teaching the basics of how to go down a hill
And even the media, NY1, got involved. Tommy was selected for the interview.
I like events like this, it gives people a chance to do something they normally wouldnt have access to doing. “Thank you NYC PARKS DEPT I had a great time” - Tommy.
