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!

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.

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.
The Emus are slightly smaller birds but have a Jurassic Park / Dinosaur quality to them.  These birds have a signature growl and can run extremely fast!  Listen for their signature call.  If you have ever been to a chicken or turkey farm, you can tell by the signature smell in the air.  This farm was very clean, no odor and very fun to feed the birds.
Ostriches lay eggs the size of cantaloupe melon.  These eggs are full of protein, have more egg whites than chicken eggs and hold the equivalent of 20 large eggs.  The shell is very thick and hard to crack, unlike a chicken egg. We spoke to the farm owners who tell us how healthy and delicious Ostrich eggs are.  Take a trip to the City of Solvang and make sure to visit the Ostrichland USA Ostrich Farm.
