Maybe it’s the people you share your mornings with: the husband or wife who makes you breakfast, the toddler who wakes you up before sunrise or the drooling pup in the kitchen just itching for a full dish of food. Maybe it’s the people you share your years with: the grandfather who tells you old war stories at the Thanksgiving table, the uncle who brings you souvenirs from his travels or the aunt who can almost perfectly replicate your grandmother’s best pie recipe. Or maybe it’s the people you share your life with: the friends who have and always will be there for you, the parents who have always supported you and watched you grow or the kids who are watching and learning from you day after day. This month here at Del Mar Lifestyle, we’re celebrating our Kids issue. But we’re

Del Mar Lifestyle sat down with Dr. Shelly and learned five things you should do if you’re concerned about fertility. 1. Understand that infertility is common.

I find many people don't talk about fertility. By helping them to understand what we want to evaluate, why it is important and how we will do it, I can help them with the anxiety of the unknown." 5. Have a goal, not a game plan. Many of Dr. Shelly’s patients find, after a relatively simple evaluation, that there are solutions to their infertility that involve minimal intervention.

THERE LISTENING WITH THEM. We want to make it fun for the whole family, so we write and perform with that in mind,” says Del Mar musician Steve Denyes, of the band Hullaballoo.

Steve has been playing music for kids and families for more than 14 years. Before Hullabaloo, he taught kindergarten through

sixth-grade music in the Del Mar school system. During that time, Steve made an album of classic kids’ songs; he gave a copy to his friend Brendan Kremer (now Hullaballoo’s drummer), who played the album at his twin daughters’ first birthday party. From there, word began to spread. Now Hullaballoo’s going strong, with more than 3,000 shows under its belt. The band plays everywhere from tiny backyard parties to concert halls and festivals,

with most of their shows taking place in schools and libraries or during community celebrations. Last year, Hullaballoo had a standing date with its fans at the Del Mar Plaza on the third Wednesday of each month. “It’s been a lot of fun watching that gathering grow. I love singing with and for my neighbors,” Steve says. “When Brendan and I started to play around town and share our CDs with friends, it became clear really quickly that there was a demand for it. Parents were looking for fun things to do with their kids and, at that time, there weren’t many good music options,” Steve says. Hullaballoo’s music is described as free-range, organic kid-folk. It’s a blend of traditional folk music and a good rocking beat that gets kids—and grownups—dancing. Hullabaloo’s song topics seem to be plucked straight from kids minds. So you’ll find songs about jumping up and down like a rabbit, and then songs about something more profound like love. “I’ve loved music since I was little. Some of my earliest memories are of my family all singing along in our family van on vacation,” says Steve, whose musical childhood also included learning a number of instruments: the trombone in fifth grade, the saxophone in high school and then the guitar. “I’ve been at it ever since,” says the born-and-raised Del Martian. Travel and college meant brief absences from his hometown, but neither lasted long for Steve, who loves both the Del Mar of his past and the place it has become. “Del Mar in the '70s was an amazing place to grow up. It was a quieter, sleepier place and a bit more low-key overall. I miss that, but Del Mar has also changed in great ways too," he says. "This community has worked really hard to create public spaces like the Powerhouse Community Center, Powerhouse Park, the new lifeguard headquarters, the new city hall and the Shores Park. It’s pretty impressive what this little city has accomplished. The great part of living here all this time is that, as a musician, I’ve been able to be a part of so many community events and celebrations like the Fourth of July parade, Holidays in the Village, Taste of Del Mar and Del Mar Foundation concerts in the park.” Earlier this year, Steve created his very own event: 20 songs in 20 days. He set a goal of writing and recording a song a day for 20 days. The project developed into a fundraiser for Happy Star Melodies, an Encinitas-based nonprofit that brings musical experiences and instruments to children facing long hospital stays. Steve accomplished his goal then released the songs on an album entitled  20 Songs in 20 Days, available on his website. While the project was an impressive undertaking, don’t expect Steve to become a studio-only artist any time soon. The guy loves singing live. “There’s nothing better than watching kids and parents just lose themselves in the music and the joy of being together. I get to see that virtually every day!” he says.

TO SAY THAT BEING A DOCTOR COMES NATURALLY MIGHT SEEM LIKE A SLIGHT TO THE YEARS OF SCHOOLING AND PRACTICAL LEARNING THAT PRECEDES A SUCCESSFUL CAREER IN MEDICINE. But it’s fair to say that the human side of treating patients is definitely organic for local pediatrician Dr. Angelo Del Re. “I think that I just find ultimate happiness in making other people's lives a little better,” says Del Re. “If I can teach a child to eat well, to care for their skin, to recognize a concussion and stay safe in sports, then I've succeeded. And if I can help my pediatric patients stay healthy and achieve a better quality of life, then I've done my job.” Most of Del Re’s time is spent at Coast Pediatrics, a small office

LOCAL’S CHOICE

Trip of a Lifetime CARMEL VALLEY STUDENT CADEN,

5 THINGS CADEN LOVES ABOUT NEW ZEALAND

11, KNOWN AS A BIG BALL OF ENERGY,

ARTICLE NATALIE NEECE

MADE HIS WISH TO THE MAKE-A-WISH FOUNDATION FOR A TRIP OF A LIFETIME, NEW ZEALAND! He and his family went to New Zealand in February 2018 and he got to do everything on his wish list. Here are his top five favorite things about his trip. Fishing - We caught lots of fish, mostly red snapper. We caught another fish that we used for bait. We got back and they filleted the fish, some huge rays ate the pieces of fish we threw back in the water.

Kayaking in Doubtful Sound We were so far away and got to spend the night on the boat. We went kayaking in the cold misty water. We saw dolphins and seals and went all the way to the Tasman Sea. Glow worm caves - We got to ride in a boat through the caves and learned about our night vision. Once our eyes adjusted we saw millions of glow worms in the caves.

Shotover Jet - The Shotover Jet is like a big jet ski. We went so fast in really shallow water, did 360’s, and went so close to the rocks on the sides of the cliffs. It was really exciting and we did it twice!

Hobbiton - It looks just like it does in the movies! We saw where Bilbo lives, where he had his birthday party, and how they had to make smaller versions of the hobbit holes so Gandalf would look bigger. 38
