We just enrolled my daughter in Montgomery Montessori and well all love it. The staff is very caring and attentive. It is much more a school than a daycare. My daughter is 2 and learning a lot. We just made a scarecrow for Halloween. The only problem I would say is that they follow a traditional school calendar and closes on holidays and for a week at Christmas. This could be a problem for people who work during this time, My daughter actually enjoys going to school each day and I feel comfortable leaving her to go to work each day.
I can' wait to see the progress she makes this year.
I received a gift certificate as a shower gift to Edwards. There pictures are so beautiful but be prepared to spend some money. I took my daughter for her first birthday. Beautiful props and backdrops. When you are ready to view your pictures they have a comfortable sitting room and present them in a slide show with music. It brought tears to my eyes. I also cried when I wrote the check. It is so worth it. My portraits are beautiful. They also do cute (and cheaper) packages at Christmas and Easter -with live ducks.
This small but great travel agency is perfect to plan your net trip whether it is business or pleasure. The ladies who work their are very knowledgeable and willing to help out. They can send you to any part of the world and will even try to beat the price you find online. Be sure to ask for Linda. She is an expert in Hawaii and DIsney World!
I received flowers from Leroy's for the birth of my baby. While they were pretty my mother in law was disappointed. She spend a lot of money and got a little plant. The plant really didn't last as long as other flowers I received. I say save our money and walk down the street to Produce Junction. If you need flowers delivered, call Pennypack florist in Philly.
When looking for appliances for our kitchen, we noticed they had a small set up of cabinets. When we asked they mentioned they would send someone out to measure our kitchen for new cabinets. We told them we couldn't afford a lot of money. When the man came out and spoke to my husband, he mentioned out under 10 grand budget. This included new appliances and moving the stove. The man left and told us he would send out the estimate. When we got it we were surprised he made it within our budget. Although we decided not to go with new cabinets, we did buy some appliances there. They will beat any price.
Our family has been taking our cars to Tom Remick for years. The best thing is that he is honest. I cannot stand taking my car to the deal for one thing and have them tell me 5 other things wrong and then inflate the price. Not here. Remick's can be trusted to do the job right and at a fair price. I now live in the suburbs and drive the extra miles to get there- if I can!
My dad would stop here at work many days and pick up flowers for his "girls". Their fresh cut flowers are always beautiful and last a long time. You let them know how much you want to spend and they put togeter a beautiful bouquet. They alway throw in extra flowers. I can't believe how big the bouquets are. I is always nice getting flowers, so be sure to get nice flowers from Otto's.
I was hesitant about taking my 2 yo to Seseme Place. I was no sure if there was enough to do. We got there when it opened. We had breakfast with the characters which is great if your kids are not scared. Even so it was a great way to start the day. We started on the dry rides and saw a show, then went to the water attractions. The only complaint was the line for food. We waited in line for luch for 45 minutes. It was all assembly line food. They need more stands or a better system. The kids stayed up and pleasant all day. We stayed for the 6:30 parade. the kids sat on their towels 40 minutes before (yes people wait that long) and ate dinner. What a great day. We upgraded for season passes and can't wait for next year.
PROS: Kid friendly for years 2 and up
CONS: food stands
This salon sits back off Huntingdon Pike. I didn't even know it was there until my husband gave me a give certificate from spawish.com. They accepted the gift certificate and had a high rating on their site. I wasn't dissapointed. I got an hour and a half facial- American Beauty- I believe. Rose petals on the table. You get a nice leg, foot, arm, shoulder and scalp massage. Your treatment ends and you receive a rose on your way out. The salon is very small and quaint. Very relaxing. They suggest products for you to use but do not force them on you. I cannot wait to go back for a maternity maasage.
PROS: offer hour and a half facials and massages
CONS: is not cheap
I have moved out of the city and still go or send a familymember to get this cake for every birthday. Thick pound cake with deliciously sweet icing. The kids ( and adults) always fight over the flowers. We had it cut for my baby shower and there was none left for me. This cake never stays around long so be sure to put so away for later. Everyone who has ever had it agrees!
PROS: Great recipe good price
CONS: Can be a drive
