Baldwin Park’s 4th of July celebration


For the third year in a row my family and I headed over to Baldwin Park for their July 4th celebration. This event just gets bigger and better every year. There are vendors with tents all along New Broad street. Food tents, bounce houses, and this year a band at the end of the street make for a great celebration. My kids love running around with friends, sitting barefoot on the hill overlooking the lake, indulging in snow cones, waving around glow sticks and holding sparklers. The fireworks started at 9 and they were great. I loved the band being there playing music during the show. This is a wonderful FREE kid friendly event that Baldwin Park puts on every year, be sure and check it out! The times and date change every year but can be found here.

Fleet Peeples Park New Playground

Much to the disappointment of my six year old, we don’t have a dog yet. Until we get one I love to take my kids to see other people’s dogs. The other day as we walked around Lake Baldwin towards Fleet Peeples Park to see some dogs, we stumbled upon the new playground. It’s so much fun. It’s suited for children ages 5-12 according to the sign but my 4 and 1 year old managed with some assistance from Mom. The equipment is very tall and the only way to the third level is up a ladder. The play equipment is completely fenced. They also have a few swings, one super fun green swing that is fit for a king.

The view of the lake is gorgeous and the large oak trees provide some shade. All in all it’s a great park and a welcome break for my kids as we make our way around the Lake Baldwin trail.

Creating a breakfast nook

A couple of weeks ago I decided I wanted to change my seating in our Kitchen/Breakfast nook from a table and four chairs from IKEA






to more of a traditional breakfast nook with benches. I was talking to my friend, Jeni and she forwarded me a couple of pins from Pintrest. I have to limit my exposure to that sight. It’s amazing but I would do a project every single day, if left unattended. Here’s the pin and here is what I did.




I purchased a round table from a woman on Craigslist. The table is wood and has a leaf and four chairs. The two book shelves, from IKEA I turned sideways and am using as benches. I then got two yards of material and three yards of foam to make cushions. I think the best idea was my Mom’s, who happened to be hanging out with me as I worked on this, to take down these old blinds and expose this beautiful window overlooking our pool. It has totally opened up our little nook and my kids eat, do homework, play here for hours. That being said, I bought two cans of scotch guard and doused the material before putting the cushions out.
