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.

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 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. What wasn't exciting about L.A.? Disneyland, Hollywood, amazing beaches and more. When you first arrive in Los Angeles you are as much a tourist as those who are just here to visit. The city is a hot spot for sightseeing, people watching, movies, concerts, sporting events, shopping and beaches. The list is nearly endless. And when you move here you do all that. Then, after a while, you begin to get a … [Read more...]
