Week End Wrap Up + a GIVEAWAY


You know you’re experiencing a Sacramento summer when someone comments on how the weather has “cooled off” and it is 92 degrees outside. This East Sac Mom isn’t complaining though, it wouldn’t be 4th of July weekend in my mind if there weren’t pools, popsicles and parades involved. Where will your families be enjoying this weekend?

Whether you plan on keeping it low-key with a leisurely stroll through the Fabulous Forties on Independence Day, or you’re going all out with decorations and costumes for the parade on Sunday, you’ll need some serious fuel to keep you (and the Energizer bunnies we call our children) going. In our house we rely on yogurt and string cheese for those portable and protein-packed snacks– all made possible thanks to milk!

The national got milk? tour is making its way to Sacramento in July and is offering one East Sac Mom a fun got milk? prize package! This year’s tour is about building strong families. A recent survey found that most Americans are not regularly sitting down for dinner – and when they are, the nutrient value of the meal is often lacking, especially when it comes to what’s in their glass. To encourage moms to set the table with milk to help build a strong family, the national got milk? Milk Mustache Mobile Tour is traveling coast-to-coast to celebrate those special moments that families share around the dinner table. Here is where you can catch the tour:

  • Thursday, July 15 – Arden Fair Mall, 11AM–1PM & 2–4PM
  • Friday, July 16 – California State Fair, 10AM–10PM
  • Saturday, July 17 – Sacramento Zoo, 11AM–1PM & 2–4PM
  • While visiting the tour stop, here’s what you’ll get to do:

  • Enter the “Milk the Moment” contest for a chance to win the ultimate family dinner experience with Milk Mustache celebrity chef Tyler Florence
  • Explore interactive dinner plate that puts milk head-to-head with other dinnertime beverage choices and about the benefits of being a milk drinker and receive tips on how to set a healthy dinner table
  • The NFL and the National Dairy Council’s Fuel Up to Play 60 football toss that focuses on the importance of eating healthy and physical activity
  • Snap your very own souvenir Milk Mustache photo
  • To enter the giveaway for the *sweet* got milk? prize package (a reusable tote, got milk? t-shirts, a frisbee, step counter, and more– plus a 1 year subscription to Disney’s Family Fun magazine), simply comment on this post. That’s it! Tell us anything you want. The giveaway will close at 11:59PM on Thursday, July 8. The winner will be selected at random and announced next Friday, July 9.

    We hope you spend the weekend creating wonderful memories with your children. Remember to share your 4th of July pictures with us by either leaving a comment with a link to your own blog or emailing them directly to eastsacmom{at}gmail{dot}com.

    We’ll see you there!
