Kream Kong Ice Cream is making people happy one scoop at a time.

This summer was filled with adventure and lots of great food. Recently, we were invited to a media event for Kream Kong Ice Cream, an organic ice cream truck.  My family and I were so excited to attend the event's secret location because we had heard so many great things about this organic ice cream.  We jumped in the car and fought through rush hour traffic to enjoy this fantastic treat!   When we arrived, the ice cream flavors available included vanilla, cookies & cream, and strawberry. Kreme Kong offers other flavors on a rotating schedule. Some of these flavors include Ube, Peanut Butter and Jelly, Red Velvet, Avocado, Cookie Butter, Matcha, and Banana Cream Pie.  For our visit, we chose the Organic Strawberry and Cookies & Cream ice cream.  Kream Kong hosts some incredibly yummy toppings.  Our cream included Cinnamon Toast Crunch, crushed Oreos, Fruity Pebbles, and chocolate sauce.  Delicious ice cream with amazing toppings will bring  the kid out in everyone.

Borrego Springs Serpent Sculpture road trip.

Artistst, Ricardo Breceda , has brought to life giant metal sculptures that reside in the open land of Borrego Springs. These works of art are giant size. Some are about 350-feet long and approximately 40-feet tall. They are impressive to see first-hand. Photos do not do just to the art pieces just sitting in the middle of sand. A well planned road trip is necessary to visit all 130 full-sized metal sculptures.  We visited a few on a one trip. After the trip, we were left with wanting to visit again. Continue reading to get more information on how to plan your road trip.  Borrego Springs Chamber of Commerce and visitor center offers information these beautiful works of art. Make sure to stop by their office to get information on where to eat and a map of the 130 free standing steel sculptures.  Borrego Springs at night is beautiful.  Just look at these beautiful images that were captured this past spring.  Directions to Borrego Springs Dragon/ Serpent location:  1

Solvang, Old Mission Santa Inez and one Ostrich farm.

Solvang, California located north of Santa Barbara is a beautiful weekend trip to take your family. The city is well-known for their Danish-style architecture, food, and shops.  It is also host to a beautiful Spanish mission. The Old Mission Santa Ines was built in the early 1800's Franciscan Church and welcomes all. Besides having great architecture and rich history, Solvang is home to an Emu and Ostrich farm which is a must see. Your kids will love this place but it is great fun for the whole family. Located at: OSTRICHLAND USA 610 E Highway 246 Solvang, CA 93463 (805) 686-9696 The farm is host to Ostriches & Emus which will reach out to you for food. In the shop, you can purchase a bowl of feed for the feeding.  I do not recommend kids younger than 10 years old to feed the birds because Ostriches do bite.  They are also very aggressive eaters. Make sure you follow the rules and watch your children at all times. Warning: Kids will not want to leave
