Get Muddy at the Kids Obstacle Challenge

Have you heard of the San Diego Subaru Kids Obstacle Challenge?

My sister-in-law and her family braved the obstacle course a few weeks ago at Kit Carson Park in Escondido, California.

Rock walls, mud pits, ropes over water,  cargo nets, dodging floating cannonballs, and more- they braved it all!

PROS & CONS from my sister-in-law:

-Family oriented.  Parents could do the full course with the kids, that includes getting wet and muddy! Or you can run/walk around obstacles and stay clean. 

-Options for challenges for both younger and older kids

- Staggered start times. We did the afternoon wave, so it was hot by the time we run.  But since we got wet throughout the course, the heat was actually tolerable.  

-We heard about the long lines to do the courses for the morning waves,  but there were no lines or delays for the afternoon wave

-Friendly staff


-Entry cost is a bit steep.  The kids only get a  medal, no t-shirt.

-The kids could run again,  but you had to pay a re-entry fee.

-Needed more water stations at the finish line.

Sounds like it was a good time overall!

You too can give your kids the chance to release their inner beast and push themselves, all while getting covered in mud together as a family! Prepare to Brave Your Adventure and have some family fun!

Vlog #17: Learning about Dwarfism at the Human Library

My boys love to spend hours at the San Diego Central Library.

Today we stumbled across a Human Library.  We met a mom who has dwarfism. My 8-year-old DJ did a wonderful job in asking questions!

I'm so proud of my boys in stepping out of their comfort zone to meet new people. 

Check out our experience in vlog number 17!

Christopher Robin: All That And a Pot of Honey

GUEST POST by Daddy Garcia
Christopher Robin is Disney's latest live-action movie based upon the beloved Winnie the Pooh children's books by A.A. Milne. The film stars Ewan McGregor as Christopher Robin, Hayley Atwell as his wife Evelyn. Bronte Carmichael as his daughter Madeline.

It is a wonderful story of a creative boy who has grown up and lost his way in the adult world. With the help of his childhood stuffed animals, Christopher Robin sets out to find his friends and remember what’s important in life and to stop and smell the roses. Or perhaps have a spot of something sweet like honey.

Directed by Marc Forster, Christopher Robin shares the same tone as one of his previous works, Finding Neverland. While Christopher Robin could be considered a sequel to the Winnie to Pooh short stories, you wouldn’t be wrong if you also said it was a prequel to Hook as they share many similar narratives.  Especially as a story about a hero who once explored a fantastical world as a young boy, then decided to leave it behind and grow up in the normal world while missing out on his children’s lives. In order to save the day they are pushed to rekindle the magic in order to find peace.

If your kids are not familiar with Winnie the Pooh. Christopher Robin is a great introduction to the stories.  My boys are always off on adventures involving their stuffed “lovies”. It reminds me of my childhood where my sisters and I would spend afternoons creating our own stories involving our stuffed animals, each with their own personality. My two sons and I loved this movie and can’t wait to watch it again with their cousins.


CHRISTOPHER ROBIN is rated PG, 104 minutes long
The movie opens nationwide on Friday, August 3 #ChristopherRobin

Message from Lysabeth:
Husband failed to mention that Winne the Pooh is his spirit animal. Some of my earliest memories of my husband of him wearing his Winnie the Pooh backpack around SDSU when we were college students. His business card (he used to pass out to cute girls) then had the quote, "Just a sweet honey bear, afraid to be stung." He was an extensive collection of "lovies", many of which are Winne the Pooh. Along with his sisters, their "lovies" were their play buddies growing up when dad was away on long Navy deployments and inside play was best for mom to keep an eye on all. Our home nowadays is filled with lovies we've shared our family memories with as well. We hope you enjoy Christopher Robin as much as we did!
