Walking with Dinosaurs - The Live Experience is a must see!

As you know... my youngest is a huge Dinosaur fan (and has been for several years now).  Two years ago when the Walking with Dinosaurs The Live Experience came to the Honda Center in Anaheim, we of course went.  There really is no way to explain how absolutely amazing the show is.  There are no seats that are bad seats because the Dinosaurs are HUGE.  The "journey" you are taken on is educational as well as visually amazing.


If you haven't gotten tickets yet, this is the time to do it because it will be doing it's final tour through Southern California in the next two weeks (it will be at the Honda Center September 1-5th and at the Staples Center September 9th -12th).  Tickets can be purchased at ticketmaster.com


Here's a clip I think you'll see how amazing this show really is...

Astronaut Ice Cream - Wordless Wednesday

Wordless Wednesday...

Because I'm THRILLED I found a place to buy Astronaut ice cream.  I've loved it since I was a kid and was so excited to share that with my kids!  (Found this at the gift shop at the California Science Center, read my post about the Air & Space Museum here.)

San Diego Natural History Museum

Summer is winding down, but we managed to sneak in a trip down to the San Diego Natural History Museum in Balboa Park.  It was actually a last minute detour after a trip to the San Diego Zoo (they are right next to each other).  My youngest is a huge fan of anything Dinosaur related... so the Dinosaurs: Ancient Fossils, New Discoveries Exhibit was on his list of things he wanted to do this summer.  Hurry though because the Dinosaur Exhibit ends September 5, 2010.  There are giant dinosaurs, small dinosaurs and everything in between currently on display.  The Dinosaurs Alive! 3D experience was amazing and we all loved it. (All 3D films are included in the price of admission).  They are currently running Ocean Oasis, Mummies Alive! 3D and Wild Ocean 3D in addition to Dinosaurs Alive! 3D.

Also on display is the All That Glitters - The Splendor and Science of Gems and Minerals exhibit was also pretty neat (ok... so I loved it and the kids thought it was ok, but their heads were so full of dinosaur thoughts they didn't notice how enamored I was with all the gorgeous jewels on display).

Be sure to head on up to the 4th level to see the breath-taking photography, and you can even buy some!

A couple of tips for heading to the museum in the summer... go early.  Really early.  And take the first parking spot you find.  Parking is free and there's plenty to do, so Balboa Park is a huge destination for locals and tourists alike.   But it was well worth the hunt for a parking spot, my boys loved exploring the museum.

We had such an amazing time exploring that we purchased a family membership (less than $100 for the year) and plan on returning to see more of the 3D movies and upcoming exhibits (Snakes & Lizards: Alive! - opens October 16, 2010 and Ends of the Earth: Science North - opens May 12, 2011).  The museum also runs a number of group member activities like whale watching.

Quick!  They are running a Summer Special and you can purchase in advance (go here)  at a 40% savings (adults $10, kids $8). 

Have you been to the San Diego Natural History Museum with the kids yet?  What did you think?  Any tips I missed?

FiRE + iCE in Anaheim is perfect for a family dinner!

We had the chance to head down to FiRE + iCE at the Anaheim Garden Walk for the 1st Anniversary bash.  It was the first time the kids had been there and their first ever Mongolian style barbecue dinner.  They LOVED it!  It's great for picky eaters because you pick out the ingredients, so you know you won't be getting anything you don't want to eat in your dinner.  

The look on the chef's face was priceless when he saw the eclectic combination that the kids wanted cooked.  But thrown all together was what the kids wanted and they couldn't have been happier with the result.

I had the chicken fajitas, they were amazing.  I could have eaten a ton more.  (I used the recipe on the chalkboard behind the ingredient area for ideas of ingredients). 

One of the best parts was that for an amazing delicious meal, the entire family can eat there for less than $35 because the buffet is all you can eat (think Sizzler with far better food and a chef that prepares the fresh ingredients in front of you!).

A tip for locals... The Anaheim Garden Walk is not busy even during peak tourist season, so don't be afraid crowds if you like to avoid them like we do.  FiRE + iCE is a great stop on your way to Disneyland or after leaving the parks.  Enjoying a meal at FiRE + iCE  is also a great way to wind down after a long day at the parks or wait out the traffic before heading home.  There are also numerous locations across the country, you can go here to find out where they are.

Have you been there?  What was your favorite meal creation?

Wow we've sure evolved...

Beloit College has released its annual Mindset list for the class of 2014.  This is created to help professors understand where the entering freshman class is "coming from" experience-wise.  When I first read the intro I thought, "Huh, how interesting." Then I read the list and it really hit me how much life has changed in the last 18 years.  Some of the things were occurring as I was a child myself but it's important periodically to look back and see how far we have come as a society.  I'm glad my children don't know there was a time when women weren't on the Supreme Court or that there was a time when second hand cigarette smoke wasn't considered toxic.

I'm glad my kids will grow up not remembering a time when it was not considered possible to have a black or female President of the United States.  

My kids look at me funny when I explained to them that Russia used to be a larger country and was named the U.S.S.R.

Here's a few excerpt from the list, (you can go here for the entire list):
1. Few in the class know how to write in cursive.
2. Email is just too slow, and they seldom if ever use snail mail.
3. “Go West, Young College Grad” has always implied “and don’t stop until you get to Asia…and learn Chinese along the way.”
4. Al Gore has always been animated.
5. Los Angelenos have always been trying to get along.
6. Buffy has always been meeting her obligations to hunt down Lothos and the other blood-suckers at Hemery High.
7. “Caramel macchiato” and “venti half-caf vanilla latte” have always been street corner lingo.
8. With increasing numbers of ramps, Braille signs, and handicapped parking spaces, the world has always been trying harder to accommodate people with disabilities.
Which ones on the list are you most struck by the significance of?

Air and Space Museum in Exhibition Park

So my oldest son is an aspiring astronaut.  He loves everything associated with the planets, stars and everything NASA.  The other day we headed up to the California Science Center in Los Angeles and headed over to the Air & Space Museum (which is also free!).  You can read about the Exploring Trees Inside and Out Exhibit at the California Science Center here.

We were surprised and a bit disheartened to see that is was anything but busy on a Summer Sunday afternoon.  There is so much to see and experience I really don't understand why more people don't take advantage the amazing educational experiences the museum has to offer. 

We spend about an hour and a half exploring the museum and my oldest was in heaven.  He brought his Nintendo DSi and was taking pictures of everything, and I mean everything.

All I have to say is that I'm glad technology has developed and our astronauts no longer wear these.  Certainly not a lot between you and the vacuum of space...

There are simulated wind tunnels to explore.  There's a retired L.A.P.D. helicopter to sit in and play around with the controls.
Have you stopped in to the Air & Space Museum?  What did you think?

Run, don't walk to the Lime Truck when it's in your area...

I don't consider myself a "Foodie" by any stretch of the imagination.  I do love delicious food and if you can pair that with creativity, then I am all for it.  And if that is the description of a "Foodie", well then sure, but I'm just an insanely busy Mom who spends most of my days at the mercy of convenience...

When I saw that I was going to be in the area of one of the local food trucks, The Lime Truck, which is going to be at the OC Foodie Fest I posted about last week... I knew I had to make time to check it out. 

There really aren't words to describe how absolutely amazing the food was.  Really.  I wish I could send samples out to each and every one of you!  I had a brie, cranberry, grilled chicken and pesto panini with a sour grape limeade fresh drink.  One of my boys had the parmesan fries with (I don't know what it was, but I would have eaten it by the spoonful) dip and my other son got a super delicious taco. Seriously I'm already trying to figure out how I can stalk the truck every day for lunch.  The boys loved their lunches too (and it was their first "Food Truck" experience, which they thought was pretty cool).  The prices were amazing (I got the three lunches & drinks for less than $20).  I also love that the truck accepts Visa/Debit so you don't have to worry about bringing cash, not all trucks do this.

The Lime Truck prides themselves on serving only the healthiest foods and that was clear from first glance at the menu, this is directly from their website:
We use only the best ingredients for our lunch menu, nothing frozen, ever. We spend tons of money to make sure that we use the best possible bacon with no nitrates or nitrites. The kurobuta pork we use is the highest possible grade, celebrating an old world breed, the berkshire pig. We make sure that our chicken is all natural and organic. The vegetables we use are organic and local whenever possible.
The line-up grew fast outside the office they were set-up at, so my recommendation would be to arrive at the beginning so you don't have to wait in a line (unless you want to browse the foods other people order to decide what you want for the day).  Be aware the menu changes daily, but I'm pretty sure you can find something delicious without much effort!

To find out where The Lime Truck will be you can follow them on Twitter, Facebook or check their website here.  Want the truck to make a stop at your office?  Give them a call or send them an email to set it up!

Surfing? Yeah... No thanks.

Ummm... yeah.  This is one reason you won't find me surfing out in the Pacific Ocean.  In a wave pool, maybe, but after this video taken off the coast of San Onofre Beach, CA it is clear I will never become an ocean surfer.

Fabulous Yet Frugal Friday - A Day of Education Fun for Next to Nothing!

Fabulous Yet Frugal Friday... A Day of Educational Fun for Next to Nothing!

We recently headed up to the California Science Center in Los Angeles (in the Exposition Park area, right next to the USC campus).  I was completely floored by how amazing it is.  As a family we could have spent hours and hours there.  Admission is absolutely free (parking cost is $8 and there is plenty of parking).  Special exhibits like the current Mummy exhibit and the IMAX movies cost extra, but there is plenty to explore without either of those.  We've now taken several trips to the Science center... so I'm going to break them up in to several posts because there really is that much to talk about!

The first exhibit we checked out was the Exploring Trees Inside and Out Exhibit, sponsored by DoubleTree Hotels.  The special (and not to be missed) exhibit runs through September 26, 2010.  We spent hours exploring.  There's a large variety of tactile learning stations for kids of all ages (that includes the parents!).  One aspect I loved is that there is one way in to this area and one way out, so parents can take a break, keep an eye on the exit and know that your little ones are safely exploring.  This totally comes in handy if you have a number of kids who like to head in different directions.

There is a giant tree play structure for the kids to explore.

There is an animal sound interpreting station.  Did you ever know where the Katydid name came from?  Listen in to its natural sound and you will!  (ok, so I'm a little biased towards this cricket, always thought it was named after me...)

We found this cute little hidden squirrel..

There's a birdhouse building station, a scent station, a picture creating station and giant acorn fort for kids to explore.  It's just a great place to allow the kids to explore on their own and to enhance your childs' love for nature.

We loved loved loved our afternoon there.  Have you stopped by the exhibit yet?

Weekend Morning Favorite - Krispy Kreme

As I am sure you have figured out if you're a regular reader... we are frequently on the go on the weekends.  My boys don't have doughnuts very often, but lately we've made a special stop in at Krispy Kreme doughnuts on our way to our adventures.  The kids love it because it's a special treat to them.  It's definitely not uncommon to see kids in PJ's enjoying a special treat with their families.  We've certainly run in to a number of people we know every time we've gone.

The kids get to check out how doughnuts are made through the cool kids viewing area along the line-up area so even when it is busy the kids are happy to wait.

An added bonus is that the last couple of times we have gone in the mornings on the weekend, everyone was given free full sized doughnuts fresh out of the oven as free samples.

Now let's talk about the selection of amazingly yummy doughnuts...

My current favorite is the banana-apple fritter.  What's yours?

To find your closest Krispy Kreme (just in case you didn't know where it is) go here.

OC Foodie Fest is Coming! Are You Ready?

Food trucks are not just for construction workers anymore!  Here in Southern California we are very fortunate to have an unequaled variety of trucks to choose from.  A bit overwhelmed?  Yep, me too.  That's why when I heard about the OC Foodie Fest later this month... I knew it was the place to head to sample some all of the amazing choices we have.  Let's be honest... if you chased the trucks around or waited for them all to come to you, you'd probably spend years and tons of gas doing so!  

The people organizing OC Foodie Fest have done all the work for you and all you have to do is show up and decide which ones you want to sample!  Sounds perfect to me. 

On August 28th, 2010 at the Honda Center there will be no less than 50 trucks to check out from 11 am - 7pm.  A portion of the proceeds will also be donated to charity and a number of celebrities will be on hand.  You can purchase tickets before-hand (at a discount of $12/each adult and $6 for children under age 12) here.  I'd highly recommend this to ensure you can get tickets before they sell out.  Pretend City will also have a kids are set-up on site to make this a fun day for the whole family.

So I'm sure you're anxious to know which trucks will be there....  Here's the list:

Barbie’s Q
Barcelona on the Go

King Kong Universal 360 3D Experience is Here!

We had the chance to head up to Universal Studios Hollywood last weekend to check out the much anticipated King Kong 360 3D experience.  I didn't know what to expect, but knew that Universal Studios would make it cool.  I watched several of the YouTube video clips from behind the scenes so I had an idea of what to expect.  Sorry, I couldn't grab an video from inside the experience (3D video just doesn't translate well on an iPhone...).  But what I can say is it is pretty cool and be sure you have an hand on any young kids because the trams really do bump and rock around quite a bit!

Couple of tips... because of the popularity of the experience and that it is the height of tourist season... be sure to arrive at the park absolutely as soon as it opens if you plan on going - especially on a weekend.  By 9:20 am the wait times are about 20-25 minutes and by 11 am the wait times are 70 minutes for the Backlot Tour.  The tram we were on actually experienced technically difficulty halfway through the King Kong experience and we had to cycle through it again, which was really cool because we got to see it one and a half times!  But unfortunately for the trams behind us... there was quite a delay.

But all in all the kids love it and the 20 minute wait we had was well worth it... it is very, VERY cool.  Have you seen it yet?  If so, what did you think?

Mars Rover Exhibit is Now at the Discovery Science Museum!

Do you have a budding astronaut in your house?  If you answered yes to that question, you need to run, not walk to over to the Discovery Science Museum in Santa Ana!  

A replica model of the Mars Rover, Curiosity is now on display there.  Built by JPL, the Curiosity is the next vehicle to be exploring Mars.  The new exhibit at the Discovery Science Museum, NASA Explores the Universe actually has the replica of Curiosity rotating in front of a mural of Mars.

There are four interactive stations for your little astronaut to explore where they can learn about parts, tools, wheels of Curiosity.  Kids can also look at sample Mars rocks through telescopes and much more.

Fun facts about curiosity:
Curiosity is the next Mars rover, scheduled to launch in the fall of 2011. When completed, the Curiosity will have a length of 9 feet (2.7 m) and weigh 1,984 pounds (900 kg) including 176 pounds (80 kg) of scientific instruments. It will be the same size as a Mini Cooper automobile. This compares to the Mars Exploration Rovers which have a length of 5 feet 2 inches (1.57 m) and weigh 384 pounds (174 kg) including 15 pounds (6.8 kg) of scientific instruments.
(above is the actual image from the Discovery Science Center and also the sketches from NASA/JPL)

I'm turning in to my Mom!

Have you ever had one of those moments where it hits you like a ton of bricks that you've turned in to your Mother?

I did the other day.  I was in the car and looked down at my hand and saw my mother's hand.  You see for years and years I would get the acrylic pink and white nails because I was a nail biter.  When I was nervous I would  play with my nails and that would result in broken and torn nails more often than not.  Recently I decided to skip the acrylic nails (more of a lack of time and an added benefit of saving money).  

A couple months ago my nails took off and all of the sudden I have strong and long nails.  Nails like my mothers.  She had nails anyone would be jealous of and I was normally first in that jealousy line.  She would have to soak her nails in water before trimming them.  They were THAT strong.  She would explain it was the Vegemite she would eat on toast on an almost daily basis.  I never could stomach the taste of Vegemite (ever heard of it?) so secretly I wondered if that was why my nails weren't like hers.

Maybe it was finally finding out I am allergic to many foods I'd been eating and cutting them out of my diet that made my nails improve.  Who knows.  Whatever the cause, I'm thrilled because I'm honored to feel even just a little bit like I've turned it to my Mom and I'll take every little bit of that I can get.

What habits or physical traits have you noticed you've "inherited" from your parents?  Do they bug you or are you thrilled?
