    NBC’s coverage of Super Bowl XLIX will be about football in a way that would have seemed farcical three weeks ago. We’re talking about football in the literal sense. As in, the football itself. With “Deflategate” still unresolved – and...

  • National Geographic Earth Explorers at Discovery Cube OC

    27 Jan 2015 | 10:37 am
    Discovery Cube OC hosts the National Geographic Earth Explorers exhibit through May 3rd, 2015, along with LEGO Travel Adventure for the little ones. It usually takes us about 1 hour to wander through the entire Discovery Cube OC exhibits. For NG Earth Explorers, we visited for a 2 hour media preview and didn’t want to leave! This is a “touring exhibit” so you need to get to the Discovery Cube OC before May 3rd to see it. The creators of the exhibit, GES, put together a 1 minute video that pretty much sums it up: Location: Exit Interstate 5 at Main Street in Santa Ana. From…

  • Cafe at Shields Date Garden for an Outdoor Lunch

    Cafe at Shields Date Garden in Indio was a refreshing spot for our family to grab a bite in the desert. Maybe it’s because it was a temperate winter day and not the heat of the summer, but we thoroughly enjoyed our meal and surroundings.  Shields is an “old friend” to those who come to the desert. We went based on a recommendation from someone who has been every year since he was a little kid. The outside of the place still looks a little dated and the atmosphere inside is kind of like a cross between a soda fountain and tourist gift shop. Then you step through the doors…
  • The Living Desert Zoo and Gardens Displays Sonoran Desert Life

    The Living Desert zoo and gardens in Palm Desert feels like you are in the middle of the Sonoran desert in Arizona when, in fact, you are at the edge of its borders just 2 hours from Orange County. I didn’t realize I could visit the Sonoran so close to home!  In researching this post, I discovered that “the U.S. has 4 major desert communities: Great Basin, Mohave, Chihuahuan and Sonoran” (according the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum site and their awesome map). If you get a chance, read about the fascinating history of The Living Desert, because it will make your visit all…
  • Where to Celebrate a Family-Friendly New Year’s in Nature

    It’s not hard to celebrate a family-friendly New Year’s in nature.  Keep an eye on the weather, because rain may cause the cancellation of some of these events. Our family tradition is to make sure we get out to see the last sunset of the year AND the first sunset of the year – which is sometimes problematic due to fog & rain (but we at least try). I’d much rather get worn out by playing outside all day — and go to bed early — than to rest up all day to stay up late. But that’s just me! Here are some places you might want to catch a sunset:…
