The pandemic has had everyone in a rut this past year. Social distancing and stay-at-home safety measures has kept people from enjoying time together and spending time outdoors near any crowds. But now that the vaccine is on its way, and more and more people are getting ready for a more active and social 2021, its time for New Jersey families to consider ways they can enjoy their year.
Springtime is right around the corner (even though its currently the dead of winter). But what better time to start planning and fantasizing about life in a post-COVID world.
Here are a few ideas for when your family finally gets out into the world again:
Birthday Parties are Back!
I don’t know about you, but its been a year withour parties for me and my family. We’ve had “virtual” get togethers via Zoom, but haven’t visited with family or friends since the Pandemic began.
One thing that we really missed was being able to celebrate our kids birthday parties with their friends. Especially for younger kids, it’s really a big to miss their birthday celebration.
So first thing we are going to do is get a big ol’ bounce castle from BounceHousesNJ.com is invite a couple dozen friends and family members over to our backyard. This combined with some good food and drink will make a very enjoyable afternoon.
And yes, adults can hop on the bounce house too!
I’ll admit, we already spent lots of time this past summer in the backyard grilling up some food, however we never got to invite our friends over. Really, what’s better than a warm summer day, grilling up some healthy food, with your favorite drink in your hand, having a good conversation with some friends?
Zoom or Facetime just doesn’t cut it sometimes!
As life long Jersey girls and guys, we’ve been to Six Flags Great Adventure dozens of times. However we haven’t been able to make our annual trip their this year for obvious reasons. When the vaccine finally gets through the population, this is going to be one of our first stops.
And one of the benefits of such a horrible year is that many of these companies are giving discounts to help encourage business to come back. Might as well take advantage of that!
