What's the best part of raising a family in SoCal?

SoCal is such a great place because you have the best of both worlds here. I live in the desert, but if I ever miss trees & lakes, I can make a drive up to Big Bear or if I ever want the ocean, I can make the drive to the coast!

What's a great destination for a family vacation in SoCal?

SoCal is the home of Disneyland. You know, the greatest place on Earth!? I don't think any family would turn down a chance to vacation at Disney.

What do your kids love most about living in SoCal?

For them I think it's just that we have access to so many different things here. Big Bear is so great for outdoor & nature activities, but our home in the desert is great for exploring & fun water play.

Quilts made from outgrown onesies, benches from cribs, spice jars from baby food containers... how have you re-purposed your old baby and kid items? Please share a photo if you have one.

I took my son's old plastic dinosaurs & painted them all one color. I then hot glued them on to a canvas for art in their room!

Can you suggest a fun craft to do with kids that uses things found in nature like pine cones, leaves, flowers, or sticks?

We recently created a desert dino terrarium using things we found outside like sand & rocks. My son loved it & he now has a maintenence free pet!
