Have you finished your back to school shopping yet?   Besides a shiny new pair of sneakers and a nice shirt for the first day, my kiddos didn’t get much in the way of new clothes yet.  They’ll be sporting this summer’s shorts and t-shirts for quite a while, so I haven’t put too much effort into stocking their drawers with pants and sweatshirts, but I know that day is coming soon.

If you’ve still got a shopping list to tackle for your kids, we’ve got great news!  The Westgate Mall is giving away a $250 shopping spree to one lucky South Shore Mamas reader!   Enter using the form below, gain more entries by following South Shore Mamas and the Westgate Mall, and by leaving a comment here on this post!

Last week I had the pleasure of attending the media preview day at Legoland Discovery Center Boston.  The official open date is Friday, May 23rd, but we’re giving you a sneak peek here on South Shore Mamas.  There is SO much to see, but we won’t show you too much and spoil the surprise of finding out all the fun little details yourself.

Legoland Discover Center is a 44,000 square foot indoor attraction geared towards kids ages 3 to 10.  The center features two Lego rides, a 4D cinema, Miniland, multiple building areas, a play zone, a model builder academy, party rooms, and more.

The center is part of the new construction happening at Assembly Row in Somerville.   32 outlet stores, restaurants and attractions will begin opening in May, including J.Crew, LOFT Outlet, Converse, Brooks Brothers and Saks Fifth Avenue OFF 5th, with more stores to follow this summer and in the fall.
