sounds good to me, but my mobility is limited. if something happens in the bay area, then there's public transit. otherwise, i'll just look longingly at the posted pictures after the fact.
i really, really need to get a frickin' california drivers license. urgh.

new town up north?! lol

well, i have an idea or two...sure if any of us are ever going up north we could try to hook up and i do go to the LA area once in a while -- i have family there including two daughters,

also amtrak or the metro are great for some field trip or other to like santa barbara or sanjuan capistrano or san clemente or the beach or any san diego tourist location down here

i'm up for traveling somewhere by train & if we chose a place where we all haveto travel we could either camp or split a room (who else is gonna understand getting your kid to sleep in a strange place! ;)

it'll just take some planning on our parts if we're serious enough

At the end of July I am going to be driving from Phoenix to Sebastopol (Sonoma Cnty) I will be hanging out there for a few weeks!

First kiddo due in December!

i do! i do!

considering my babe is only three weeks old, perhaps we could aim for an LA get together sometime in July? i'm totally flexible in terms of when and where, other than being a little hesitant to leave my cocoon with her in tow. but i'm guessing i'll be a little stir crazy by next month...

sounds good to me. :-) my mom will be here most of the summer, and we wanted to make some outings while she was in town. so, maybe that would be an option. we could rent a car {'cuz she has a license} and check out the north bay.

I am just into my 2nd trimester and definitely anticipating some loneliness--I live in Long Beach, and would *really* like to find a group to join. In preparation for the social isolation that often comes with child-rearing, I am trying to get a sense of what is out there.

Is there anything brewing in the LA or Orange County areas? Even if I need to wait for the baby to actually arrive before I meet anyone, it would be *so* great to know that there are some like-minded folks out there, occasionally collected in one place....
