Imagine Maleficent's daughter, Mal, and Cruella de Vil's son, Carlos, attending school together while Chad Charming, son of Prince Charming and Cinderella, is not far away with Jane, the Fairy Godmother's shy magic loving daughter.

reasons-to-visit-Aquatica-San-Diego

Last year was our first experience of family water park fun at Aquatica San Diego. Living in Arizona, it's hot in the summer and water parks are a favorite family activity.

Our six year old daughter had grown since our last visit and was tall enough for every thrill ride. We also brought along our new Read More... {Read More...}

My daughter would love to be at the beach and visiting aquariums everyday if she could.

vacation-baby-bath-happy

Traveling with a baby requires some serious packing skills. In addition to all the essentials necessary to travel with a baby, you also need to plan for all the challenges, like not having a bathtub in your hotel room. Years ago we traveled to Hawaii when our oldest daughter was just six months old. I quickly learned how a room with only a shower was not ideal for bathing a baby. Our next week away from home I packed a deflatable Munchkin White Hot Inflatable Duck Tub (affiliate link). Read More... {Read More...}
