Memorial Weekend - Spontaneous

Happy Memorial Weekend. We hope you are enjoying your weekend. We are staying close to home and being spontaneous. There is so much to do in Orange County that our family can pick up and go at anytime. In a few minutes we can go to the OC great park for some outdoor fun or to the Ocean Institute for some science.

So look for the pictures and the story to follow in the days to come.  But if you are interested in getting out and  making your own adventure then here is what I suggest: Orange County Events: You can look at the OC register: Free or discounted places OC Deals Inland Empire Events: You can look at IEShineOn Blog San Diego Events: You can look at Random San Diego Have fun planning your field trip and share your ideas with me.  Love hearing about field trips and family fun.  Take care!

Zevia - Keeping a promise

I have to say that I enjoyed the lemon lime over ice.  When I met them they took my information and promised to send my school a few samples for us to try. I thought how great it would be to share with my son's school this great product.  A few days ago I received an email confirming that they would deliver cases to our Elementary school.

The school secretary was in shocked too. (Well not too much. Since the week before we received 800 copies of  Sunset California guide.)  The schools PTA was very thankful for the donation. Right now the soda is behind lock and key. No one has access to these yummy drinks. They will be unveiled at the Silent Auct
