Honoring Parents

BlogHer 2010 In Pictures

I can still feel the energy radiating from BlogHer NYC! The days were packed full of sessions, networking, swag bags and fun! One of my favorite things was meeting moms who Kolcraft follows via Blogs, Facebook and Twitter. It was like meeting old friends who I knew for years and meeting new friends who I am excited to get to know better.  What better way to honor Mom Monday than to show off some of the great moms we met over the weekend. :)

After a busy morning I was able to meet up with some more Kolcraft Moms over lunch. It was quite a crowd including Kailani who flew in from Hawaii and Cathi who is a go-getting Grandma!

I was thrilled to meet Elmo. He did a little dance when he found out I was from Kolcraft since he knows we make his ever-so-popular Elmo potty.

Had the opportunity to spend more time with Kristin. Her little girl, Brooklin, was a newborn when I met Kristin, so I feel like a virtual auntie to her. :) It was great to meet her in real life.

Green was the theme when hanging out with Kate and Xenia!

I know if he were a mom, he would be a Kolcraft Mom! Gotta love the Pillsbury Doughboy.

I had to go all the way to NYC to meet a mom who is in my own Chicago Backyard!

@MyChicagoMommy and @Kolcraft

There were so many other wonderful moms that we met: Jen from After the Alter, Emily Dickey from Baby Dickey, Tanya from Mommy Goggles, Jen from the Dirty Tshirt, Danielle from A Few of My Favorite Things, Tammy from Autism Learning Felt, Denisse from Ahorros para Mama and so many more! A great big thank you to all moms who inspire us, make us laugh and remind us about important life lessons.

We look forward to seeing everyone at BlogHer 2011 in San Diego!
