  • How to Spend Your Last Days of Summer Vacation in OC

    Michele Whiteaker
    19 Aug 2014 | 6:31 am
    I’m counting down the end of summer vacation in OC – not because I want school to start — only because school is starting for us after Labor Day.  I remember being the mom without school-age kids who couldn’t wait for the “big kids” to get back to school and out of my parks so we could get back to our quiet play routines. Okay, exaggerating a little, but it doesn’t take much to push me over the edge when it comes to crowds. Speaking of crowds, did I mention we went to Chima Water Park at Legoland California on the 2nd to last Sunday before Labor…
  • Southern California Aquarium Trips & Touch Tanks

    Southern California aquarium trips and touch tidepools are almost rites of passage for California kids. Most feature local sea life, and some include tropical highlights from Mexico or the South Pacific. Southern California Aquariums Birch Aquarium at Scripps in La Jolla My very favorite and more manageable with small children. Outdoor views of La Jolla Cove with touch tidepools on one deck and hands-on exhibits at the other.

  • Birch Aquarium at Scripps for Seahorses and Leopard Sharks

    Birch Aquarium at Scripps in La Jolla, in my opinion, is the best Southern California aquarium for families.  If you’ve been following my blog for any length of time, you know I’m rather crowd-averse. The bigger aquariums just make me nervous because there are usually large field trips and it’s easy to lose sight of the kids in the darkened exhibit halls. This hasn’t happened to me when we visit Birch. Directions to Birch Aquarium at Scripps: The aquarium is part of the UC San Diego campus in La Jolla. From Orange County, take I-5 and exit at La Jolla Village Drive.
  • 2 Kid-Friendly San Diego Beaches with Playgrounds

    8 Aug 2014 | 8:19 am
    Reader Question: I’m going to Northern San Diego for Saturday and Sunday this weekend.  It’ll be mostly with my 3 year old and myself so I’m thinking about spending most of Saturday at a beach.  This means either Oceanside, Carlsbad, or possibly Encinitas.  I want an easy access to the beach with some quick-bite choices in the vicinity. I’ll suggest these two kid-friendly San Diego beach and playground combos: Moonlight Beach in Encinitas and La Jolla Shores in La Jolla. For both spots, it is best to get to the beach by 9am or 10am to beat the crowds and ensure you can get…

    My husband and I have date night almost every night. Sometimes we read. Sometimes we watch TV. Sometimes we just talk. After the kids go to bed it’s just “our time.” And it’s basically a free date night without having the pressure of going out and making this one night the best night of the month or week. I love it and I look forward to our evenings together every day. Mr. NaturePlayTrips thought this scene from “This is 40″ was HILARIOUS in regards to my chosen blog topic. Imagine the scene. We’re unwinding and watching a movie. Lots of the movie is…
