Even though I don’t have children, I find myself enjoying and learning from the mom-focused articles written by Sharlene Earnshaw, a freelance writer for the blog, Lake Forest Patch. I just read one of her articles that I know will be of particular interest for those of you with children or grandchildren, “Three Perfect Parks for Throwing a Party”.
If you’re not already a subscriber, I recommend registering for the Lake Forest Patch, which serves Lake Forest, Foothill Ranch and Portola Hills. There’s a sign-up box in the upper right corner of the site. There are also Patch blogs for Mission Viejo, Rancho Santa Margarita, Aliso Viejo, and Laguna Niguel. Find their links at the bottom of the Lake Forest Patch page.
BTW, for children or adults prone to cold sores, make sure to a apply lip balm with a high SPF factor if there will be lots of exposure to the sun. If the early warning symptom of a cold sore occurs inspite of the lip balm, make sure to have pocket size Cold Sores Begone™ in your pocket or purse — it will prevent the eruption. It’s available online, or locally at Mother’s Market, Henry’s Marketplace, Whole Foods Market, and Sprouts.
