Pairs at the Planetarium – 2022

This weekend our families had the fun honor of learning about planets, constellations, and space at the Pierce College Science Dome!

Most kids were over the age of 3 to be able to listen (aka pay attention!) to the sky talk.

The kids enjoyed shouting answers and trying to find planets, stars, and moons as the sky above them changed.

These photos are from before the show – it gets much darker to really see the sky!

It was so nice getting together safely after a long time of no in-person events!

Cookies and story time with Santa – 2021 virtual

Santa was kind enough to video call our families last night to read a story from his cozy home! The families with twins or more decorated and ate cookies while he read. Then each family had a chance to join a private break out room with Santa for the children to share what they wanted for Christmas.

This is an especially memorable event for me (Becca, tech chair) as cookies with Santa was my first TPOM event 3 years ago. I was 8 months pregnant with twins, brought my 2 year old to the in-person event, and met some wonderful and helpful moms! Although we were virtual this year, it was so great seeing some of the first faces I ever met again. Thank you everyone who helped make this one a success as well!

Pairs at the Patch 2021

We were so excited to be back in-person at the patch this year even though it rained, like a true PNW fall day! With 1 set of triplets and 10 twin families, including siblings we had quite the turn out! This is one of our favorite annual Pierce County events. Parents and children can dress in Halloween costumes and get a pumpkin.

Last year, we had a virtual event where families got pumpkins and showed off their decorated jack-o-lanterns on our private Facebook page.
