Singing & Napping {Not Dancing} in Carseats

This is one of many songs sung by DEA3 on the way. Hearing her voice makes me smile, it’s so sweet.

This is how the girls spent hours & hours of this fab summer day. {AKA4 is catching air here.} 20130630-001853.jpg
{FYI: Water slides are the BEST babysitters!}
Happy 6th Birthday Avery!

Summer Water Sliding Fun

A post shared by Jen (@carseatdancers) on

Our ride home was silent though, total opposite from our ride there. She lasted for less than one block before falling asleep. We had to laugh when we saw her… Yellow braid and movie STAR shades in hand. 20130629-233734.jpg

Cheers to Water Play!

1st Annual Tour de Fork // Foodie Fieldtrip

If you missed the spectacular 1st Annual Tour de Fork held on Thursday, June 20th from 6-8pm at Victoria Gardens be sure to keep your eyes and ears open for next year’s festivities. This event, benefitting: DiscoverIE, Rancho Cucamonga Library Foundation & Rancho Cucamonga Chamber of Commerce {Wow! All proceeds were donated to these local charities!} was the perfect “Date Night” for foodies. Guests tantalized their senses while sampling an array of tasty fare, lovely wines and craft beer {Oh, the hops and vines!!!} all while listening to jazzy tunes. Awww… the ambiance.

Overall, my time spent mingling, munching and sipping at the Tour de Fork was great. I’d only recommend a couple of minor adjustments for the 2nd annual.
* Add at least 1 more hour to the event. {Patrons felt a tad rushed at the end and the lack of time left our pallets wanting more.}
* Have a minimum of 3 bands sprinkled throughout the pathway of treats and libations.
{The music truly helped make this an experience to remember.} Recommendation: I’ve heard the acoustic rock of Strangebrew at Hangar 24 Craft Brewery recently. They, along with another would be a great addition.
* Offer a couple of different price points for tickets as $50 was a bit high. {Although 100% of proceeds was for charity. By the way, pure AWESOMENESS!}

Can’t wait for next year!
