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

    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…

  • 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.
