I am a freshly minted partner at the amazing Jouer Café playground! We are run by three mums (yay for mompreneurs right?!) in Beaumont, Alberta (just about a 5 min. drive from South Edmonton).
We are celebrating on Sunday with our Grand Opening (drum roll!). We will have the festivities from 10:00 am - 2:00 pm with loads of fun things to do like have your caricature drawn, ride some Strider Bikes (from We Play, another local business) Princess Nails (from Anne-Marie from The Nail Boutique, another mum business) and more. Plus we'll have yummy treats to try.
We hope to see you there!
