Some changes for the mamas' privacy...

Hey Mamas!
Just a heads up, but many of you have noticed the privacy setting for our Facebook group page has been changed from "closed" group to "secret" group and many have been asking me about it. Without going into details, its just a temporary thing while we figure some stuff out for some of our mamas in need, and its an attempt to help keep their info private. 
We will still be posting info about our activities, but details such as location will no longer be mentioned on this blog. To find out more info needed to come to these events you will now need to request to join the group's page on facebook, or contact us through our email (seen in the contact tab on the menu bar). However, note that for the time being though, (while we check some things out), requests to join may be delayed on being approved. So if you want to join, or if you have a mama you want to invite to the group or know someone who wants to join will you please just message us and let us know and then we'll talk with you and work on adding them A.S.A.P?!
Thanks for understanding mamas, and sorry for the inconvenience! ;)

July's Mama Activity: Babywearing 101

For this month's Mama Activity we are having our first babywearing class!
Wednesday, July 25th from 7:00 pm - 8:30 ish pm
(*See the group's facebook page for the location and for more details!)
This class will be more of a "Babywearing 101," and the first in a series of babywearing classes that the lovely Mayme Seng Ercanbrack will teach us!

This class will be the perfect intro to babywearing, and we'll talk about benefits of babywearing, the principles behind correct positioning, what makes a good carrier, the different kinds of carriers and we will take a look at them all.

To Bring: (ALL are optional!)
* As for all the “Mama Activity” nights, bringing your kids is optional. (I’m personally probably going to pawn mine off on daddy this time, but I’ll have the location be somewhere where kids can have somewhere to play too for anyone who needs it. ;) )
* Any friends you think may also be interested!
* A treat to share if you want/can! (I’ll bring drinks and plates.)
* Those mamas with their own carriers and wraps can feel free to bring their own carriers too, and if we have time after the class you can try eachothers' carriers out and get help with any other babywearing questions you might have. -In the next babywearing classes we have we will learn more specific carries and practice them more in depth though. :)


**Note: For this particular class we are going to have a sort of "part 2/DIY class" on the following Saturday as well. For this one, Megan Lindstrom will be teaching how to make your own of several different kinds of carriers for those interested. She will talk a little about this at our class, as well as more details will be available in the event invite for that day!

Alright mamas! Its about time for our July playgroup! :)

This is just a general playgroup at the park, so grab your kids, swimsuits (where applicable), sunscreen, lunch if you want, and come play at the park with all of our awesome Cache Valley Crunchy Mamas!

**Note: Although the time is written as 11:00 to 1:00 ish... keep in mind that its a "come and go as you can" kind of thing and that last time we had some chatty mamas stay until like 3:00 or 4:00!! So PLEASE still come even if you think you're going to be "late"! ;)
