For the last holiday weekend of summer, we decided to go to The Malibu Chili Cook Off Fair – not 1 but 2 days in a row. The special part of it is as a kid, this is the same chili cook off that my parents would take my brother and me to every year. So now as a parent myself, I loved every minute of sharing the experience with my own children.

Smurf Invasion! I love that Smurfs were my fave when I was a kid and now they’ve made a fashionable comeback!
