Happy Sunday! Hope you’re all enjoying this long weekend as we prepare to honor those that have sacrificed for our country. It also marks the unofficial beginning of Summer. I wanted to share another fun activity to do with the kiddos this Summer. AMF Summer Games is back this Summer offering pretty inexpensive bowling, all season long. Here’s how it works.

You get 3 games of bowling per day, All Summer Long! All you have to do is head here, register, pay for a Summer Pass and then head out for a good time. Prices vary by location and bowling alley. For example there are over 2 dozen participating bowling alleys in Southern California alone. Some offer free passes for kiddos under 15, some charge for kids, some charge for a family pass, and others only charge for adult passes. Passes range from $29 to $39 for the entire Summer. There are some that offer a family pass for under $40. Click on over to find a participating location and price.

We’re going to be taking advantage of the Summer Games since we found out we could buy a family pass for $39. I think $39 is a pretty darn good deal if you bowl a few times a week. For additional info and to find a bowling alley near you head over here.

Fun at Apple Camp!

Fun at Apple Camp!

I told you that we can’t wait for Summer. The countdown is on! Here’s another super fun idea to do with the kiddos this Summer.

I have two budding filmmakers at home. My kiddos love taking my camera or iPad and making dozens of movies a day. We love Apple Products and last year my daughter had the opportunity to participate in Apple Camp. What’s Apple Camp? Well let me tell you about this super fun little free camp at your local Apple Store.

At Apple Camp, kids ages 8-12,  learn how to shoot their own footage, create an original song in GarageBand on an iPad, and put it all together in iMovie on a Mac. This free workshop, held at Apple Retail Stores, spans three days and ends with campers debuting their masterpieces at the Apple Camp Festival. Space is limited and workshops fill up quickly.

Head on over here to sign up to be notified when registration opens up. You want to sign up as soon as you get the notification because it fills up in a few hours. You’re going to love it! Promise!!!

Introducing EVER Skin Care

Posted by: | Comments (0)




Introducing EVER Skincare, a new skincare line the truly delivers on the promise of revealing your most beautiful skin. EVER Skincare features the beauty breakthrough LSR10TM in clinical grade, botanically derived skincare that can deliver visible transformation to reveal your most radiant, youthful, vibrant and healthy-looking skin. I am so excited to be able to be one of the first to introduce this line!

Did you know that cellular inflammation is one of the major causes of aging, and it comes from exposure to UVA/UVB rays, dehydration, diets filled with refined sugar and white flour, and lack of sleep? A solution was discovered in a potent botanical with immense health benefits dating back to 100 A.D. – Magnolia Officinalis. Using this key ingredient, the EVER Skincare science team developed a patent-pending, bioactive complex of three molecules scientifically formulated to reduce the top 10 visible signs of aging, which makes up the beauty breakthrough LSR10™.




What I also LOVE about the EVER Skincare line is that there are no harmful ingredients or substances that are banned in other countries. The EVER Skincare line never, ever contains parabens, sulfates, phthalates, propylene glycol, synthetic fragrances and colors, chemical sunscreens, butylated hydroxytoluene and hydroquinone. All of the products are consciously formulated for the health and beauty of the skin, and only contain ingredients that are effective and meet strict safety requirements. EVER Skincare consciously avoids ingredients that are banned in other countries, and never, ever test on animals. All of these efforts create a philosophy they call Conscious Beauty.

I had the opportunity to try EVER and I really loved how it made my skin feel. I actually went to work without makeup and my skin looked great. I even had someone ask me if I had a peel recently. I also have very sensitive skin and I could use this. Usually I’m really weary of trying new products because I break out and they irritate my skin.

Summer is right around the corner. My kids have 19 days of school left and I also have 19 days of teaching left in the School Year. We’re having a blast in our classroom and I’m also looking forward to making some great memories with my kids this Summer!

We have a calendar ready to go and it looks like we have our first week ready to go.  We like to relax on some days, have adventures on others, and stay busy locally on the rest. Last year we took advantage of Michaels Passport to Imagination Summer Program and we can’t wait to do it again.

Join the store’s classroom for a seven week road trip filled with crafts from the beach, to the country fair, and more. Classes are $5 per session or $ 12 for all 3 weekly sessions. The classes are two hours long, from 10am to noon. You just drop them off, shop, or stay close by. We did it a couple of times last year and I was able to get my grocery shopping next door to the store alone. It was fantastic!

Every week will feature a different destination, and three separate crafts. Registration is now open for all 21 sessions. Sessions take place every Mon, Wed, and Friday from 10am to noon, starting Monday, June 15th and ending the week of July 26th. Head on over here to register. Your kiddos will love it! Promise.

Del Real Foods Party in a Box Giveaway


Disclosure: This is not a compensated post. Samples were received for review purposes. However, all opinions are my own.

My family is always on the go. Between our adventures, sports, school, and work, it’s hard to cook a good meal. I’m always on the lookout for yummy and tasty food that is ready to go. When Del Real Foods asked me to review some of their most popular dishes, I jumped at the opportunity. I’ve had a few samples at Costco and enjoyed what I tried.

The folks at Del Real sent over their Al Pastor Tacos Kit, Carnitas, Chile Verde, and Barbacoa. It was truly a party in a box and we enjoyed every last morsel. We had a movie/stay at home night and enjoyed a good flick with some delicious Mexican comfort food. Del Real foods use natural ingredients, most of which are locally sourced. I have a kiddo who has Celiac Disease and was so happy to find that their dishes are gluten free and trans fat free. Score!!

Del Real Foods has generously offered to give one lucky Daytrippingmom reader a Party in a box. The Box includes  some of Del Real Favorites like carnitas, tamales, pork al pastor pupusas and the newest delicious addition: the Al Pastor Taco Kit. Winner will also receive a cooler and blanket. Perfect for a picnic at your favorite outdoor location.

All you have to do is leave a comment letting me know your favorite Mexican is. That’s it. You can also gain additional entries by following us on Twitter and sending out a tweet. Winner will be chosen at random. Giveaway ends on May 12th at 11:59pm. Good luck!
