Friday, April 20


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.

Need some fresh veggies? Check out the Grow'n Growers Farmers Market is in San Juan tomorrow from 9 to noon. There is a map to the park on their Facebook page. Also the Baby Café for pregnant and nursing moms is at the same time. Here's a link with more info:

Edinburg Scenic Wetlands: Saturday from 1 to 5 p.m.: They'll have crafts, teaching you how to make reusable bags out of Tshirts. That sounds so cool! Check out their FB Page to!
