I feel fortunate to have a child who is very interested in fitness and athleticism. He always has been. We have many opportunities to train together, and we love to connect in this way. So this Father’s Day, we’re going to the gym to workout! Really, we are.
This Father’s Day, you may want to spend some time with your kids having a family conversation about money and values. If this makes you feel a little uncomfortable, don’t worry — you’re not alone. Many parents feel uneasy talking with their kids about the family’s finances.
“But once we talk to the kids about money, it will be like opening Pandora’s box. Who knows where the conversation will go?”

With world-class scientific research and innovation from Stanford Medicine, we achieve life-changing breakthroughs.
Wow, it is hot. Come out and play! Starting next week, we have an awesome line-up of weekly, regular park playdates – FREE for any and all PAMP families to attend.

PAMP’s very first Fun at the Farm Day event this weekend was a huge success! Thanks to everyone who came out and enjoyed the festivities. PAMP hosted about 70 families at the event, including more than 120 kids.
One of PAMP’s fabulous volunteers, Catherine, said, “Our family enjoyed an action-packed event with Mr. Pastorino of Pastorino Farms commandeering the tractor for the hayride. We also enjoyed watching the capture of the piglet — the escape artist of the petting zoo!”
One of the best ways to meet fellow PAMP members and their families is to attend the fun events we offer to our members. Did you know that there is a PAMP event almost every day of the week? Finding an event to attend is easy!
