Hello fellow Mamas and all those raisin’ babes here in the Morongo Basin!

We are Erika (left) and Ashley (right), just a couple of super dorky Mom Friends with a love for this desert and the lives we’ve created here! Together with our supportive husbands, we are raising 5 amazing children between us.  We instantly became friends 3 years ago when our girls attended dance together and we both were in search of a much needed vanilla latte.


Finding things for our families to do in the Basin hasn’t always been easy.  We felt like navigating local resources for parenting and finding family-friendly events was time consuming and nothing was located in ONE place.

In an effort to be your one-stop-shop for all things kids, we have partnered with The Local Moms Network to create Morongo Basin Moms, a website focused on giving Moms (and Dads) the Gift of Time.  This site has been created with the simple goal of saving you time and energy by providing a comprehensive collection of local events and resources, a connection to your community with local Mom (and Dad) interviews, blog, discounts and all things necessary for navigating the Basin and this beautiful chaos called motherhood!


Whether you grew up here, choose to stay, are just visiting or you were dragged here kicking and screaming, we want to be your support and the village it takes to raise your littles in this beautiful desert.
