Mindy DeLisi, who lives with her family in a “nice, quiet neighborhood” in Burlington Twp., NJ, is a familiar name to our MK Facebook fans, as one of our most avid reader commenters. Her savvy insights made us want to get to know her better, so we asked her to fill us in on how her brood keeps so busy.
Favorite ways to spend family time: “Twice a month we have movie night, cuddle and eat popcorn. If it's a nice day out, we might pack the bikes and head to the park. It's always an adventure.”
Where’s the adventure? “We have been going to the Garden State Discovery Museum since my oldest was young. That place is so much fun! We also love the theme parks: Great Adventure is not too far from us. Oh, and I can't forget the Adventure Aquarium; my kids could stare at the fish all day.”
What about eating out? “Every Monday, the DQ Grill & Chill in Hamilton has family night. Kids eat free with a paying adult. Not only that, Dennis the Entertainer is there doing magic and making balloons for the kids.”
Her town’s best-kept kid secret? “I have to say it’s the museum pass that you can check out at the Burlington County Library. There are 7 to 10 different museums you can take your family to for free with the pass.”
Any Halloween-fun plans? “This time of year gets busy! We love pumpkin-picking at Shady Brook Farms in Yardley, PA. If we can find a haunted attraction, we might do that; my kids love to be scared and so do I. [MK can help with this one — click here for a rundown of nearby spooky sites.] And, of course, trick-or-treating!”
