I am really excited about hanging out with all of you at Pickwick Gardens in Burbank. I hope you all can make it!! Comment below, send me a tweet or a text to get on the list.
The feedback from these small dinners has been incredible. Moms getting together, learning more about each other, gathering strength, and changing our community for the better seems to be just what (SoCal at least) has been missing. We hear you moms!
The next dinner will be Thursday Feb. 12, 2015 at 6 pm. Restaurant TBA at RSVP via HU! Twitter, HU! FB or in the comment section here. 15 person limit. 11 spots left. Please RSVP before Tuesday Feb. 10.

THIS WAS AWEOSOME!
We had a dinner at Roy’s in Pasadena with some education from Antonio Rosas from Biogen Idec. It was SO FUN and the turn out was fantastic!!!!!! I wanted to cry all night because I was so happy to see all the Hemos being so cool (and forgiving because we were so squished in!) and happy. Laughing and hugging and meeting old and new friends. I really think we are on to something. I know in California we are struggling a little bit to find a way to meet others in the community…this might be something that brings us all together.
Our first Meet HU Event was August 9, 2014 at Loma Alta Park in Altadena, CA. There are two playgrounds, swimming pool, sports fields and gymnasium on the top level where we we set up.
The kids went nuts for the first two hours on the playgrounds while while the adults met and got to know each other.
There was way too much yummy food and we are all still stuffed.
We were reunited with friends made at previous events and welcomed a new family to Southern California. Superman made a guest appearance and so did some of our favorite people from CHLA HTC team. It was a great mix of people and everyone was so nice and open. Thanks everyone!
