About Me & My Family

I live with my Husband and Daughters in sunny Oceanside, CA. We love to get out and about and see new things! I have done a lot of traveling over the years with kids, from my 2 girls, my younger brother to my little cousins and nieces. I get a kick out of surprising them with fun new things and taking them to places I enjoyed as a child.
Our Family's Travel Personality

The excited look on my girls face just before they see the next hotel we take on!
Worst Travel Moment With My Kids:
Waiting for the fog to clear from Oakland Airport, that can be a wait especially when my 6 month old does not want to take formula!

"Great Ballpark for Everyone!"
This is a great ball park to enjoy the game. There is a small grassy are behind centerfeild where yiou can site and watch the kids play around, they even have a jumboton to watch the game from back there. The cheapest seat are $5 and they are bleacher in the back of the stadium. The on negative thing I would say is I am deatly afraid of hieghts so I have never made it past the second level of escalators! It looks pretty scary as you are looking out at sky scrappers eye to eye and nothing to keep you in....just an FYI

"A true tradition"
My husband and I have made it a tradition to go to this farm each year to pick out our pumpkins for the past 10 years. Now that we have a daughter we couldn't imagine stopping now! This is a true pumpkin patch! Hay rides, Corn Mazes, and patches full of pumpkins. You have the option to select a pumpkin from a pile or adventure into the feild and find the perfect one! The normal pumpkins are surprisingly well priced but the big ones can break the bank! There is also a craft faire and shop on site that offers holidays gifts!

Torrey Pines State Beach and Reserve | kids travel, kids activities
Torrey Pines State Beach and Reserve
12500 North Torrey Pines Road,
San Diego,
California 92037
I work near by this beach and often find it hard to pass by. I bring my daughter here to look at shells and play in the sand. There is not much free parking close by but if you take a short walk they do have tons of parking with a covered walk way that accesses the beach. You can also hike though this area. I have gone alone but never with my daughter, if you have the appropriate gear I think it would be a great hike!

San Diego,
"Amazing Cafe"
There is an amazing cafe in the Prado, it is run by the cohen bros group. I often find myself dreaming about it! It is a great place that is outside and inside. Outside offers views of terraced gardens. The place is upscale but accomodating to kids. I highly recommend the chicken BLT!

"The sister to the best Zoo in the world!"
This is a great place to spend an entire day, but note this is in escondido and this area of san diego county can get HOT! be prpared with water and refreshments. They will let you bring in anything that does not have a straw :) I highly recommed the lion exhibit, there is a great kids water park in front and my daughter just can't get enough!
