We, the LA Dads Group, brought a member of our group for his first time to Dad 2.0 Summit, a dad blogger event. We asked him if he would write about his perspective about his trip. He agreed and I am very excited to introduce, Juan Pablo Delgado. We had the pleasure of meeting Juan Pablo over a year or two ago, his beautiful family and his company, My Custom Insoles (which if I wasn't wearing these over the weekend, I would have had some serious sore feet!). It is awesome to have him be part of our LA Dads Group. Let's check out what he has to say! My first DAD 2.0 Summit … [Read more...]
I got to join a few pretty cool blogger moms as they toured Sony Studios earlier this week. We were invited to tour the sets for both The Goldbergs and Dr Ken as well as enjoy a few minutes of questions and answers with some of the cast, crew and others.
The Goldbergs: In the 1980s, geeky Adam uses a video camera to document his family's crazy life. His mother, Beverly, is overprotective and lacks boundaries, while his dad has a hot temper and finds it difficult to parent without screaming.
I was born in the early 70's, so … [Read more...]
I moved to Los Angeles about 12 years ago following a business opportunity. I was growing tired of the gray weather in Seattle and jumped at the chance to start a new chapter in my life.

Then, after a while, you begin to get a … [Read more...]
The other weekend, we were invited by Britax to celebrate Safe Kids Day with some celebrities, parents and hundreds of kids that was presented by Nationwide. This LA event was at Smashbox Studios was this was just one of 223 Safe Kids Day events taking place across the United States which helps raise awareness and funds for Safe Kids Worldwide. There was so many fun things to do with the kids, one of our favorites was with the one and only an animal adventure, zoologist Jack Hanna and his baby animals (so cool!); we also played games with Clifford the Big Red Dog; sliding down our giant … [Read more...]
For me, Los Angeles means diversity of cultures, languages, food, and ice cream. Lots of ice cream. On a weekend, I can take my kids to the Thai Cultural Festival, an exhibit of a world-renowned artirst, or on a bike ride across major boulevards during CicLAvia. Or I can take my kids down the street to the local public library to be entertained by dragon dancers on Chinese New Year’s or Bob Barker’s Marionette Theater on a Saturday afternoon. When we go to our local park, my kids are exposed to playmates speaking languages from all over the world - they can be recent immigrants or … [Read more...]
