The long awaited day has finally come! VISITING DAY 2017! Since my girls go to a 4 week camp we get to see our love muffins at the 2 week mark. 🎉❤️ To prepare for the big event I watched Odd Mom Out’s Visiting Day episode! 🤣 It was hysterical and on point and the only 2 things I kept wondering was 1. How much did Lesters pay to have their signature yellow bags featured AND get a shoutout #lestizz
2. Is the rest of America outside of NY/NJ laughing with us or at us.😳 I was cringing because of how much truth there was to the mayhem. 😱
Anyway considering the kids only get to keep their candy🍭🍬 for VISITING DAY only I struggle on how crazy to really go. 🤔 This year I decided to get the girls a new Razor Sparks scooter🛴🔥 that shoots sparks out of the brake (by pushing down on the flint pad that’s attached to the brake) that they can use on our August RV Tour 🚎 and thanks to the help of Dr Swag at Lesters, we grabbed some of the hottest trends🔥, and I decided to attach them to the scooter as my method of display. 👏🏽😃
Two years ago for Hailey I decided to paint a birdhouse to make it look like her bunk.⛺️🏠
Anyway, Lulu and Lattes blog always does a great job of letting you know all the must have for visiting day and she nailed it again! 👏🏽🙌🏽 here is her 2017 Visiting Day Guide. My favorite line of her post was “if you can’t find something in this camp gift guide, you are pretty much shit out of luck.”
Except she forgot one fad. A customized cake by Okay But First Cake. Although I haven’t tried one so I can’t vouch for how it tastes or looks in person I’ll add it here anyway because they do look cute.🎂✔️
Oh wait, I think she forgot another one SQUISHIES! You can get them at in Roslyn at Lesters, Funky Monkey or Johns Variety or at the Sweet Spot Shoppe in Plainview or even in amazon! 💵 They range in price for $5 up but the medium average is $15 a pop 🙄😡 Some have a scent and some are keychains!
Which are basically pieces of junk that they love to squish with their hands. ✊🏽 I didn’t realize but Amazon sells a ton. The best bang for your buck is this 30 piece slow rising lot!!!
Ok I’ll admit this sprinkle cake is really cute!
This ice cream cone is by far our favorite! 🍦
I was so “lucky lol” this morning because I arrived at Funky Monkey in Greenvale to a hot off the truck new batch of “slow risers”! 🙌🏽👏🏽👍🏽 #thatstrawberrycaketho 🍰🍰🍰
I decided to put them all in a red and white basket (TLW camp colors) and wrap them up with cellophane! I’m not sure what I’m more excited about the squishies basket or my pimped out toy and candy scooter 🤣👍🏽
Another cute toy I found there, was this Bluetooth microphone. It syncs to your music and has a built in radio and speaker and the kids can sing along to a you tube video or follow kareoke words. 🎤 They come in a few colors I got a pink and a gold, it never gets old watching my girls perform! Hope they like it!
No I will not be bringing up Toku, or Mr Chows or a frappacino, or sushi, or Kitchen Kabaret, my little darlings will have to eat the camp food for lunch with us. I know I’m soooo mean. ✖️✖️✖️🍱 🙄 No I won’t be chartering a heli or ridesharing on a small plane, we will be happily Sprintering up! 🚐💨
Anyway, first I wish you all a successful and thrilling RUN 🏃🏾♀️🏃🏽 and secondly I hope everyone enjoys their visiting days and their children enjoy their rest of their summers! ❤️🌞
🌟🌟VISITING DAY UPDATE🌟🌟
The scooters were a HUGE SUCCESS, they had the best time pulling off all the goodies that were taped on and the basket of squishies was literally passed around and enjoyed by kids AND adults as well!!!
I would say it was a BIG SUCCESS! We had extremely HAPPY CAMPERS! 👭❤️
