Get Muddy at the Kids Obstacle Challenge

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

My sister-in-law and her family braved the kids 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 and CONS from my sister-in-law:
PROS
-Family oriented kids obstacle course.  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
CONS
-Entry cost is a bit steep.  The kids only get a  medal, no t-shirt.
-The kids could run again,  but yo…

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

Image
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 bo…

Vlog #15: Kicking Off the Summer with the Nissan Rogue

Image
Yay for summer vacation! Now that I'm off of work, I was ready to just chill, but I became a full-time mommy taxi for the family! The first days of summer we hung out at grandma's pool (twice), window shopped and played at the newly renovated Westfield UTC mall, celebrated Fathers Day at our favorite eateries, sent Jelo off to theater summer camp, and of course, the everyday activities like grocery shopping and church.

Thanks to Mossy Nissan in San Diego, we spent the first few days of our summer vacation cruising around sunny San Diego in a new 2018 Nissan Rogue. Scroll down for our favorite features of the Nissan Rogue.




Driving around with kids can make a mommy driver very distracted, which often times I am. The safety features of the Nissan Rogue is what really stood out for me:
Drive Assist Display - Center console has a 7 inch display which as lots of features, but what I liked the most was the front and rear facing camera that helps with parking and backing up. There are …
