The Broad Museum in Downtown Los Angeles.

The Broad Museum is one of our favorite places to visit. It is located in downtown Los Angeles, California.  It is a great place to see and feel creativity. The museum offers free admission by ordering online in advance or waiting in line at the door.  We visit the museum a few times per year to get inspired. There is something about the art pieces at The Broad that brings extreme emotion to the surface. For example, the art piece named "Under the Table" evokes extreme feelings of joy for us. The piece reminds us of fun times in our younger years. This piece is by Robert Therrier, who is known for bringing  regular, everyday items to life while allowing us see them through a different perspective. It is a must see piece. Please see the video by The Broad Museum on this piece of art.  Alternatively, there is the Jeff Koons collection with bright colors and full of happiness. His pieces are like going to a party in the next room in which you have been invited. We reall

Summer Field Trip - Blackberry picking in Southern California.

U-pick farms is one of our favorite ways to buy fresh fruits and vegetables. It is  also a great way to connect with nature. We visited Greenspot Farms this past weekend for an opportunity to pick blackberries. The season is just getting started, therefore, in the coming weeks there will be a lot more fruit on the vines. Address:  10133 Ward Way, Mentone, CA 92359  Greenspot Farms has many activities for you and your family including a playground for your kids and farm animals to keep them occupied. Our kids absolutely loved feeding the animals and would love to come back. Our favorite area of the farm was its' little market. It had several fruits from the farm for sale and refreshments to help keep cool. We recommend wearing light clothing such as shorts, t-shirts and make sure you put on sunscreen.  The summer heat is coming, wearing light clothing will help you face the hot weather this summer. The blackberry bushes are near the farm entrance. There are two sections of

Ice Cream and Shave Ice dessert places to visit this summer.

ICE CREAM!!!!!  We are big fans of ice cream, shaved ice and frozen yogurt. Our summer goal this year is to visit fun dessert eateries that offer yummy frozen treats.   We love shaved ice with a scoop of ice cream or an ice cream taco dessert. Planning our visit to the creamery shops is a joyous family event because it is a sometimes food. This summer, we plan on having more scrumptious moments in the hopes of capturing the perfect ice cream experience. We are sharing some of our favorite places we have visited in the past and a few new places we will be visiting this summer.
