Guest Post by Mommy D'leina

As Garcia Bros start to get a little older, D’melia has been fortune enough to attend many events on behalf of Garcia Memories. Lucky us!!

Our latest experience was at Paw Patrol Live! “Insert catchy theme song here: Paw Patrol, Paw Patrol, be there on the double!”. If you have a toddler/preschool aged child, you most likely have seen these pups and their rescue missions more than you'd like to admit to yourself. D'melia goes through stages where she will binge watch a certain show over and over again, so there was a few weeks there where Paw Patrol was on repeat. Needless to say, I wasn't jumping for joy about seeing them live, but I knew she would love it so off we went.

Paw Patrol Live surpassed my expectations! I was expecting a draining experience of trying to keep D'melia quiet and paying attention. I was pleasantly surprised by how fun the show was. Although the attention span of a 3-year old is very limited, the live action show …

Vlog #10 - College Life for a Seven Year Old

Image
Who asks to visit a college campus during spring break? My kids.

Maybe it's my influence of being a school counselor or maybe it's my kids' geeky tendencies. Either way, it's always a good time exploring new places in and around San Diego. Who knew my kids would get a kick out of visiting University of California, San Diego.

During our visit to UC San Diego, we:
Parked in the parking structure on the outside of campus and walked "to class"Visited Giesel Library - named after Dr. Seuss himselfAte like a college student at Shogun in the Price CenterExplored the "gift shop" a.k.a. bookstoreTook advantage of the free play at the student arcade
