This morning we are off to Blogger Bash in New York City. That’s right–the swagger wagon is headed south to the big city! Rather than driving into the city (which I avoid at all costs!), we will take the Metro North train from New Haven into Grand Central. The boys are so excited to take the train and see New York City. I love that they are at an age when just the transportation into the city is exciting! If only it stayed that way!… 😉
First off on the agenda is Sweet Suite, a giant party hosted by the Big Toy Book. I went to Sweet Suite at the BlogHer conference a few years ago, and I can’t wait to go again! The party will be a Location 05 and will feature toys from Disney Infinity, Lego, LeapFrog, Skylanders, Crayola, Hex Bugs, V Tech, and more. It’s a great opportunity to check out new toys from these companies and share them with you! Another bonus–lots of unbelievable desserts!
Friday will be a busy day of meeting with brands. The great thing about Blogger Bash (this is the first year) is that it’s a much smaller crowd than BlogHer, so there will be a lot of opportunities to make meaningful connections with brands and hang out with other bloggers. I will have breakfast with Lego Batman 3, a media panel, speed dating with brands, lunch with Johnny Rockets, Mommy Tech, Baby Palooza, and the Kidz Vuz Back to School event. My six-year old will be coming to the Kidz Vuz event with me, and he’s super pumped!
My husband will have the boys while I am busy at the conference–Will is coming with me in the Ergo. Hopefully he will have fun at Baby Palooza! The boys will be busy walking around the city and hitting the American Museum of Natural History, Central Park, and maybe the Children’s museum. They are going to be exhausted at night! 😉
More to come from NYC!
