KCL Friday Finds

Happy weekend!! If you've had a hectic week like my husband and I have (or if you're dealing with the recent snowstorm) grab a cup of coffee, get comfy, and enjoy some major retail therapy. This week's Friday Finds is just the thing for some serious online shopping. I was honestly running late with this post, because I got distracted browsing through all of the products available in each shop. There are so many great finds and a sweet, personal touch to each brand. Enjoy! :) Pictured above: Black Polka Dot Print Crossbody Bag by Sudden Inspiration


The first featured store is Sudden Inspiration, a shop that sells the cutest hand-crafted bags. You can find everything from cosmetics bags and wristlets to roomy crossbody bags. The designs pair faux leather with beautiful prints and colors. As I clicked around and noticed all of the bright florals, modern neutrals, and boho-chic tribal prints; I found myself wondering where the vision behind this brand comes from. Owner Melis…

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!
