When I was 21 I lived in the LA area for 8 months with 5 other girls and 2 guys. It wasn’t exactly Real World, but it was pretty crazy and fun, and not without its drama.
Last summer I got to go back for the first time since then, only I got to take Mr Hottiepants and The Cuteness (AKA our little goobers) with me. Honestly, I was super surprised by how much David LOVED it there. We all just felt sort of at home somehow.
My two favorite things to do were hang out between Venice Beach and Santa Monica Pier, and hang out at Universal Citywalk at night. I know, I know, super tourist-y, but I just love the vibe. Anyway, I now know that our little family totally loves that, too.
I think our ideal playdate is somewhere in there 😉
So what are you doing on April 27 from 9:00am-5:00pm?
Hyundai is sponsoring an Epic Playdate Weekend not too super far from LA in Santa Barbara, CA. How fun would it be to check that out?! Crazy and awesome bloggers like Dooce, Mighty Girl, Oh Happy Day, Oh Joy, Say Yes To Hoboken, Girls Gone Child, and How To Be A Dad are going to be hanging out on the beach doing some epic workshops for kids.
Do you think you might have a budding little photographer? Why not let them experience a kids’ photography class? A kid great with motor skills? Hula-hooping workshop! Throw in a paint fight, an ice cream sundae bar, and lots more and I think you’ll agree it would be hard not to have a blast.
Unfortunately, this is an invite-only event.
But we could win it! (and so could you ;)) Since it’s a trip for four, and we happen to be a family of four, we wouldn’t even have to leave anyone behind.
OK, that’s it, I’m off to enter. Oh, in the part of the form that asks “How did you hear about us?” make sure you choose Clever Girls Collective!
