Happy Earth day to everyone! I hope ya'll have a cool, clean and eco-friendly day! Take a walk in the park and breath in some fresh air, I know we are. I am so sad that there is not a Great Cloth Diaper Change location near me. But I did find out some good new about a Breast Feeding Cafe (read below for more info) in the area, how cool is that. It is kinda irritating, but that's another post!
I wanted to share some local events that are happening so you and your family can enjoy your day:
Check out the Quinta Mazatlan 2012 Vida Verde event! Tons of things happening there. There is a $2 fee for adults and $1 for children. And it's right near the mall and other shopping centers if you want to get yourself some FREE Reusable bags as well.
