3 Looks for a Summer Wedding

It seems not too long ago when I shared three looks to wear to a spring wedding. But that season has come and gone so quickly, and summer is upon us. And it is the biggest season of the year for weddings, so chances are you have a few invites and may be wondering what to wear. It's pretty easy to figure out summer wedding attire if you keep the location in mind.

Of course you have the invite to start with as well. It should say "Black Tie Attire" or "Black Tie Optional" or perhaps something like "Formal Beach Attire," and it will have the ceremony time. Generally indoor evening weddings call for more formal attire than outdoor afternoon weddings.

For an indoor wedding, no matter what time of year, you can never go wrong with a Black Formal Dresses. An elegant knee-length cocktail dress, like this FAIRY COUPLE Women's Off the Shoulder Lace Vintage Wedding Party Cocktail Dress is perfect for a black-tie optional indoor wedding, while a sleeveless o…

Travel Diaries: The Fourth In Frederick


I love living in Frederick, MD. There are endless festivals and activities for every holiday, including Independence Day. We took the family to the park downtown for Frederick's 4th. According to Celebrate Frederick, the event attracts over 70,000 people. It sure felt that way when we were trying to find a parking spot! That's Frederick though--too many people and tons of traffic. But it is totally worth it!

The festivities; including live bands, food, moon bounces, pony rides, boat rides and more, began at noon. The fireworks were scheduled for 9:30 p.m. so we figured we'd show up early then go home for dinner and come back for fireworks. This was our first time going, so I didn't realize just how much fun and food there would be. Thousands of people camped out all day, complete with their own makeshift gazebos, lawn chairs and grills. They knew what they were doing!

My biggest mistake was showing up after lunch. There was so much delicious carnival food there. If only I'd arrived with an empty stomach! That didn't deter me from trying to stuff my face...lemonade, snowcones, old-fashioned soda, corndogs, soul food, turkey legs, funnel cake! They had everything.
 


In the lake across from the main park, they were offering kayak, canoe and paddle boat rides. You paid, grabbed your boat and rode as long as you liked.


Aside from all of the events they had just for the fourth, Baker Park is home to a beautiful community pool and a large playground.


As if it weren;t kid-friendly enough, they also had a Kid Zone--a massive Kid Zone; with moon bounces, pony rides, a petting zoo, an art center, a giant rocking chair for taking family photos on, remote-control car races, and more.


It's a fun and affordable place to take the kids for the Fourth. The inflatable moon bounces, rides, petting zoo, and pony rides are all free.


We came back at night for the fireworks. It was pouring so unfortunately I didn't get photos of that, but I can tell you it was absolutely gorgeous and the kids loved it!
