The First Annual Lactivist Bash

Looking for The Lactivist? She's retired. But you CAN still find Jen blogging. These days, she's runs A Flexible Life. Join her for life, recipes, projects and the occasional rant.

Tuesday, March 20, 2007

Disclaimer: No actual bashing of this lactivist or any other lactivist will take place.

Well, I've received close to twenty emails from women that are interested in attending "Lactivist Bash 2007" here in Columbus, Ohio, so I've gone ahead and worked out some details.

When: Saturday, April 21st from 11am to 3pm (we'll eat at noon)

Where: One of the Columbus Metropark pavilions (I'll announce which after RSVPs)
I'll be renting one of the large covered pavilions that has attached parking, a play ground and modern restrooms. That way we're covered even if it rains.

What to bring: Yourself, your family, some food to share and any games that you or your kids want to play. (There should be a lot of green space, so Frisbees, toys, whatever...

I'll provide paper products, drinks (Lemonade, Ice Tea and Water) a fresh fruit tray and a vat of my famous chili dogs. (I know, they aren't super healthy, but I'll get turkey dogs and use ground turkey for the chili...besides, you gotta live a little at picnics...)

So, please RSVP by email (please don't just post in the comments, send me an email too so that I can email out directions) by March 31st so that I have time to get a pavilion. Let me know how many are coming and what you think you might bring. That way I can make sure we don't end up with 27 veggie trays and one bag of chips. ;)

Also, if anyone else has a 5 gallon drink cooler, let me know. I've got one that I'll use for ice tea, but it would be nice to have another one for ice water and one for the lemonade.

Gotta say, I'm looking forward to this. I turn 30 on April 20th, so this will be a nice way for me to enter the next decade of my life...surrounded by people as crazy as I am. :)

Oh, and feel free to pass this on to other Ohio moms, anyone that supports breastfeeding is welcome to come. Just make sure they RSVP to me by March 31st.

    Man, April 21st must be THE date. Lol My girlfriend emaled me that her little guy's party is the 21st and then DH tells me last night that the departmental (very late) Christmas dinner is on the 21st. Argh!! I wish I could come!

    I'll come as long as all the breastfeeding is done discretely.


    Just kidding, don't stone me!

    30 is great! It will be fun to meet everyone and help you celebrate your birthday.

    :( Wish I could say I'd be there...I'm due the following week, so that just won't be a good traveling time ;) Hope you all have some fun!!!

    I wish I could make it. I've been reading this blog for a while and would love to meet up with everyone. Sadly, Columbus is an 8-hour drive from Scranton, PA, so I don't think there's anyway I could possibly make it. )= I hope you all have a wonderful time!
