Well, well, well, SoCal families. Since it looks like we’re not going to experience a true cold winter (do we ever??), we can, however, experience something somewhat similar thanks to The Queen Mary’s CHILL event which is back for another season of icy family fun! This year, attendees will experience America’s first Ice Adventure Park, and holiday traditions from around the world. Let me tell you, it’s overwhelmingly awesome (and COLD).

I keep hearing about all of these interesting places all over Southern California, and think to myself, “Do I live under a rock!?” How have I not heard of these?? One place, in particular, is Great Wolf Lodge; an indoor water park resort. Everything at the resort was built and designed with families in mind. We were invited as a family to check it out for a day and loved it. Here are 11 reasons why we’re definitely coming back to Great Wolf Lodge (and bringing a large crew with us).
Santa’s Village is officially open for the Holidays at South Coast Plaza and it is pure magic. I wouldn’t expect anything less from South Coast Plaza, the premier mega mall of Orange County. Everything they do is above and beyond, so of course they would go all out for Christmastime.
We love taking our daughter to Pretend City Children’s Museum in Irvine, CA. It’s a place where children learn to play creatively through imaginative play in a museum designed as a small city. The exhibits at the museum encourage kids to play, learn and explore how the real world works.
Knott’s Spooky Farm (not to be confused with Knotts Scary Farm…and if you do confuse the two, and you’re a family with young kids, GOOD LUCK) is a limited-time weekend event at Knott’s Berry Farm in Buena Park. We recently took our daughter and she LOVED it. Here are some things we loved about our family fun day at Knotts Spooky Farm.
Do you love music? Dancing? Brunch? — then you’ll LOVE the Gospel Brunch at the House of Blues Anaheim (Garden Walk). Each Sunday of the month, the House of Blues in Anaheim hosts an electrifying and uplifting Gospel Brunch. Read on to hear more about my incredible experience at Sunday’s Gospel Brunch.
This past weekend, we attended Disney on Ice, “Dream Big” in Long Beach, CA. Watching our baby girl in awe of the show brought back so many childhood memories. Seeing her giant smile gazing at the organized chaos through extremely talented and entertaining ice skaters was so cute I could’ve cried. Okay, I did!
