FREE Bowling for Kids All Summer!

Need something fun but inexpensive to keep the children busy this summer? I’m with you. When summer break rolls around, I get happy because I can turn off all the various alarms (wake up call, drop offs, pick ups, etc., etc.), and take it easy or go on vacation. In the summer we like to relax and have fun. Thankfully, we have jobs that allow us to do that. We’re still busy but it’s different busy. Sometimes we need “fillers” or a last minute playdate. It is a balancing act and can get expensive. Thankfully there are cheap things we can do too like take the kids bowling free with … READ MORE

Laser Quest Birthday

Written in collaboration with Laser Quest. Lately my son has been into Nerf wars and laser gun battles so I thought LASER QUEST would be the perfect place to host his birthday party. We all had a BLAST! It wasn’t just for kids, because I invited parents to play too, and they later told me they were not expecting to play, but glad they did! We all played at our own pace. Some teamed up and some ran around solo. In one of the games my husband and I ran around laughing. Luckily Laser Quest in Mission Viejo at the Kaleidoscope was available on the date we needed. The two … READ MORE

Homemade Hot Chocolate with Vitamix Aer Disc Container

Disclaimer – For this product review, I partnered up with Moms Meet. All opinions are my own. I have been wondering what is so great about the Vitamix. Everyone that uses one, swears by it and loves it. I finally got to test one out recently with the new Aer Disc Container. It emulsify, whips, muddle, and creates foam/frothy drinks. I wanted to make something simple like whipped cream for hot chocolate and followed the directions on the recipe card. Within minutes later I was like, WOW! It was easy to do with only two ingredients (sugar and heavy cream) and two step instructions. Now I can make homemade whipped … READ MORE

Big Air OC Trampoline Park Laguna Hills Birthday Party Survival Tips

Trampoline parks are not new in Orange County, and they are popular for birthday parties among the children. After been to several, I’ve noticed they’re all similar but have differences too. They all want to be family-friendly, accommodate play dates for small children, host teen nights and fundraiser nights for local schools, and they all want to be everyone’s birthday destination. Let’s take a look at Big Air Trampoline Park in Laguna Hills for example. I believe they were the first ones to open a trampoline park in Orange County. I’m not talking indoor bouncy houses but trampolines. I remember when they first opened in 2013, it was new and … READ MORE
