We’re always looking for great options for playdates to meet with friends. The children like to run around, and although they’re more independent, we still want them to be safe.

Specializing in French-inspired goods, PARIS BAGUETTE opened their 55th U.S. store last month in Aliso Viejo, and we got checked it out during their Grand Opening and ribbon cutting ceremony with local city officials. They are located in the Aliso Viejo Town Center and it is also their first store in South Orange County. It has modern decor with outdoor seating. It is one of the nicest one I have been to. This is how you order – grab tongs and fill up a tray with pastries, then head over to the counter to order signature coffee, drinks, cakes, sandwiches, or salads. Everything I tried was delicious. There are 10 macarons variety at Paris Baguette Aliso Viejo. Perfect for any occasion, they have pretty gift set boxes for 4 or 8. They also carry options that are vegetarian, vegan, or gluten-free. Today, there are more than 2,700 locations worldwide and they began franchising last year. For more information, please visit their website at www.ParisBaguette.com.

We were recently invited to spend an afternoon at the Renaissance Club Sport in Aliso Viejo. They offered complimentary childcare at Kid’s World while we worked out or during spa services. To our surprise, it was quite large. They separated the kids into two age groups which we liked. (ClubKid is designated for children ages six weeks through five years, and is subdivided within by smaller age groups. KidFit is structured for ages 5-12.) Kids World.
