We are officially into March which means we are on the final countdown of the last few days of winter (fingers crossed) and the 2017 Healthy Family Expo! Last year I attended the Expo as a member of media and this year I have the pleasure of attending as one of the expo’s ambassadors.
The neat thing about being on of the ambassadors is you see just how much hard work and dedication goes into putting on an event of this size. Countless hours of emails, meetings, phone calls and late nights have been spent pouring their hearts into ensuring this event is a fun filled event for families of all ages to enjoy. And let me tell you their hard work certainly pays off.
Last year while juggling two kids in a stroller, we wandered the show, seeing many of our favourite companies and friends amongst the crowds. We enjoyed the active kid zone, sampled some goodies and rocked out to a Bobs and Lolo concert. This year we are planning to arrive a bit earlier so we can take part in a few more activities. Hazel has since learnt to ride her bike so we will be paying a visit to Pedalheads and of course visiting the always fun Spring Free trampolines. We can hardly wait to attend and hope you will be joining us there.
