3 Summer Excursions on Boston’s South Shore and Mid-Cape

Sometimes, moms are looking to fill the whole day!  On MommaJam, July 17, 17 at 7:10 a.m., we covered three great summer excursions to do with your kids.

1.   Heritage Museums and Gardens in Sandwich 

Just over the bridge on the Cape is a garden oasis that is great for kids to roam around.  Every Friday in the summer is Family Fun Fridays, featuring special activities and an outdoor concert at 11 a.m. at the outside concert stage.  Check out Wicked Plants, an exhibit about poisonous and deadly plants – creepy and campy at the same time.  Cool off in the gorgeous old-style-silo building that showcases two floors of breathtaking antique cars.  Pack a picnic or stop at the outside cafe for delicious food and treats for the kids.

2.  Ferry into Fanueil Hall, Boston
Take the weekday ferry from Hingham Shipyard into Rowes Wharf for a full day of historic fun.  Visit Fanueil Hall, go to Hillstones for lunch or dinner, check out the water fountains and explore the North End, walk to the Boston Children’s Museum or Aquarium on the waterfront.
Check here for ferry times to and from Boston.
Provincetown has numerous beaches, biking, museums, art galleries, boutiques, restaurants and more.  Make it a full day trip or stay over night in a B&B….
Tune in every Thursday at 7:10 a.m. on 95.9 WATD-FM.  Listen live on the radio dial or online at 959WATD.com.

This week’s MommaJam continues with our mom and baby workout theme that we’ve been talking about with Rob Hakala and new mom Lisa Azizian, co-hosts of the South Shore Morning News show on 95.9 WATD-FM.

On Thursday, May 29, 2014 at 7:10 a.m. we are profiling two moms on the South Shore who “run” (pun intended) a roving mom and baby workout business. Tune in to hear about these gals.

Listen live and call in to win a free Oh Baby Fitness class of your choice.

Katelyn Woodard of Marshfield and Kristen St. Amour of Pembroke have joined forces to license the national “Oh Baby” fitness program and offer numerous stroller, pool and mat-based work out classes for new and expecting moms.

The Oh Baby classes are all over the South Shore, so there’s no excuse – you really can find a class close to home. Here’s a list of all of the class locations, to date:

Plymouth Fitness
Webb’ Pro Fitness
Scituate Racquet and Fitness Club
The University Sports Complex
The Hingham Community Center
Forge Pond Park in Hanover
Abigail Adams Park in Weymouth
The Jewish Community Center of Greater Boston
Enhanced Integrated Wellness of Hingham

Exercise for expecting moms and new moms is very important to ward of the baby blues, meet like-minded friends, and have fun. Post partum depression or ANY shade of the baby blues is serious. Classes like these draw moms together, help you bond with your baby and build a solid network of friends. Plus – you get a work out in and feel good!

Boston Stronger

95.9 WATD-FMComing up on MommaJam, Thursday, April 17, 2014.

Tune in at 7:10 a.m. on 95.9 WATD-FM on the radio dial or online.
In the one year since the Boston Marathon bombings, the people affected by the tragedy have become stronger – through the support of family, friends, complete strangers and sheer will power.
This year, the Boston Marathon continues with pride, energy and determination.  Many stories focus on the athletes, but there’s a whole group of people running this grueling race to raise money for charities that benefit children.
Here’s a list of teams you can donate to this year – because we are Boston Stronger!
1.  House of Hope in Easton – this non-profit provides all sorts of incredible learning and adventure programs for kids with developmental disabilities.  The House of Hope also gives parents much needed “time off” to feel refreshed, renewed and ever vigilant when caring for someone who needs constant nurturing.
House of Hope is looking for runners!  If you’ve always wanted to run the marathon or want to run for a charity, but can’t get a bib, now is your chance.  http://www.houseofpossibilities.org/boston-marathon/
2.  The Children’s Room in Arlington, which helps grieving teens and children cope with the death of family members.   Donate to this much needed non-profit that helps kids deal with difficult, life changing situations, such as a parent passing away.  http://childrensroom.org
3.  Children’s Hospital Boston – Miles for Miracles.  This team has already raised $2 million dollars!   Who hasn’t been to Children’s Hospital Boston – the best doctors are there!  The staff at every level from the valet attendants to world-famous surgeons are courteous and respectful and best in class.  The funds support much needed scientific research that keeps our children healthy and strong.  http://fundraise.childrenshospital.org
4.  Cops for Cancer - from Braintree on the South Shore
Provides funding for families with children who have cancer.
http://copsforkidswithcancer.org
There’s been an overwhelming amount of people – thousands, in fact – who want to run for charities this year’s Boston marathon.  Instead donate to the teams who are running to help children in need.

You can make a ton of salads by pairing tomatoes with just one or two ingredients like mozzarella and fresh basil or oregano and feta cheese.  Just add olive oil and Kosher salt and serve with crusty Italian or French bread and you have a delicious meal.
