Sunday, May 12th 10:00-12:00

TotTussovka and RJeneration team up again!

In honor of a wonderful holiday, and because we all love Mama, we invite you to join us wearing ALL WHITE ( that’s right, don’t be afraid). 

Our brunch celebration will feature milk friendly goodies, a hands on workshop on how to make butter and yogurt and a talk on the history of milk in America. You will leave knowing more about milk then you ever thought possible.

Our amazing location features an in and outdoor space so we will take advantage of amazing weather but still be safe in case it rains.

Toys, music, workshops in Russian, old and new friends of all ages, mothers day morning with family, traditions, stories, gifts from ANBBaby, milk and honey flowing...
