Guardians of the Galaxy Floats

Star Lord is great.  He’s funny; he’s got great dance moves.  But Groot, especially Baby Groot when he’s dancing.  I just can’t accurately predict how many times I’m going to see Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 2 just so I can watch Baby Groot.  It’s going to be a lot.


In honor of Groot, my family and I celebrated the release of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 2 with Guardians of the Galaxy floats.  We call them Groot Beer Floats as they are blended root beer floats with lots of fun extras.  Check out the super simple recipe that’s out of this galaxy!

Palm Springs Aerial Tramway

From the desert to the snow in just over 10 minutes.  In Southern California, it can be done.


Growing up in Southern California, my husband and I both had fond memories of Palm Springs from our childhoods.  Matt spent a week each year in the sunshine and in the water park.  I, on the other hand, have just one very clear memory of staying in the same hotel that the Saved by the Bell wedding special.  He has serious Palm Spring cred, so it was shocking that I had experienced something in the desert that he hadn’t–the Palm Spring Aerial Tramway.


Check out our family’s high-flying adventure in the Mt. San Jacinto State Park on the world’s largest rotating tramcar.

Knott’s Boysenberry Festival

Not going to lie, the Knott’s Berry Farm Boysenberry Festival is my jam.  As a long-time Orange County resident I adore the opportunity to celebrate Orange County history, while enjoying all of the boysenberry-themed offerings.


Knott’s is always a fun day for my family, with a variety of attractions perfect for preschoolers to parents.  We are so grateful we were able to spend another day in the park, but the Boysenberry Festival was a first for all of us. Today I’m excited to share our all the fun, including our berry favorite food offerings.
