Family Fun Day | Recap


We celebrated our 1st Annual Family Fun Day on Saturday, September 6th at Meriter’s Monona Clinic! We had an amazing turnout of local families who came out for a morning of family-friendly fun. The event was sponsored by Madison Moms Blog, Meriter & SwimWest Swim School and offered up healthy snacks, a bounce house, story time, crafts, face painting, a teddy bear clinic, shopping, plinko, obstacle courses and dance. There was plenty of fun for everyone and we couldn’t have ordered better weather!

We would like to give a HUGE thanks to Meriter for hosting this fabulous event! And to SwimWest Swim School for co-sponsoring! SwimWest offers high quality swim instruction for everyone from babies to adults with a focus on keeping children safe in and around the water.



Funny Faces painted a lot of adorable faces throughout the morning (and did an amazing job!)

Meriter had a highly qualified team of physicians on hand to do a ‘Teddy Bear Clinic’ where favorite teddy bears, stuffed animals and dolls got thorough (head to toe) check-ups – complete with a certificate!

Madison Family
Madison is such a cool city. We love it around here. We live here too and our vision is to create a platform where real parents share real stories and we can all learn from one another. You will get to know real moms doing life right here in our neighborhoods and find information on a wealth of topics – local summer camps, preschools, swim lessons, shops and boutiques, events and experiences as so much more.
