Disneynature BEARS ~ Meet The Cubs!


Disneynature BEARS

~ Heartwarming ~


My 9 year old daughter and I were invited to attend an advance screening of the new Disneynature BEARS movie. It’s a heartwarming film about an Alaskan brown bear named Sky, and her 2 cubs, Amber and Scout, as they learn what life is like outside the realm of their Winter den. This movie has real footage of the bears in their natural habitat, and is not animated, like most associated with Disney.

Planning Your Child’s First Visit To Disneyland!


Planning Your Child’s First Visit To Disneyland!


Mickey's Toontown at Disneyland
If you’re like me, planning your child’s first visit to Disneyland is so exciting! The memories you have from your own early visits to The Happiest Place On Earth flood into your mind, thinking about the moment you enter the gates, hearing the whistle of the steam train, and feel the excitement on Main Street. At least that’s how it was for me planning our daughter’s first trip to Disneyland!

We loved going to Knott’s last year for Berry Bloom, their Springtime event, and are excited to be invited back to experience it again this year. When we went a year ago we were amazed at how the Park was transformed by the decor. Huge blooming flower decorations, and beautiful floral chalk drawings were found throughout Knott’s. We visit lots of Southern California theme parks, but hadn’t experienced this level of Spring festivities elsewhere.

Free Family Fun At The Project Wildlife Baby Shower!

Project Wildlife Baby Shower


5th Annual Project Wildlife Baby Shower!

We found an injured baby Mockingbird on our property a while back, so I called Project Wildlife to find out what we should we do with it. They said to bring it to them, and they would give it the care it so needed. We delivered the baby bird to their facility, and were very happy they were able to help. I joined their mailing list, and recently received notice of the Project Wildlife Baby Shower.

The 5th Annual Project Wildlife Baby Shower is happening from 10am-2pm on Saturday, April 5th, 2014, at the center’s triage facility. It sounds like a fun, family-friendly event. Project Wildlife will offer visitors to view their Triage Center (where they care for sick, injured, and orphaned animals), learning opportunities with Animal Ambassadors, and a festival-like atmosphere with a Kids Zone, vendors, food, and games.

The Project Wildlife Baby Shower is absolutely FREE to attend. We plan to join the fun, and contribute a tax-deductible baby shower supply donation to them when we arrive. We think they’re a great non-profit organization, and know they’re in need of help to assist the thousands of baby wildlife that they rescue each Spring and Summer throughout San Diego County. If you too are interested in bringing them a Wildlife Baby Shower gift, or general donation, you can find ideas on their Wildlife Baby Shower Wish List.

For more information about the Project Wildlife Baby Shower, or general information about Project Wildlife, please visit their Website. The event sounds like great fun, especially for animal lovers like us! Perhaps we’ll see you there!

WHAT: Project Wildlife Baby Shower
WHERE: 887 1/2 Sherman Street, San Diego, CA 92110

Tea Time At The Westgate Hotel


Tea Time At The Westgate


Tea Time At The Westgate
My grandmother was British, and passed along many English traditions to my mom. My mom in turn shared many of those traditions with me, including enjoying an occasional Afternoon Tea. She and I enjoyed many nice Mother-Daughter Teas together, but I had yet to attend another Tea after her passing two years ago. I was super excited to carry on the tradition when my daughter and I received an invitation to Tea Time at The Westgate Hotel!
