Kids Night at Chick-Fil-A.. I don’t think I will make dinner on Tuesday nights ever again!

Last Tuesday, after picking up my daughter from dance class, I was tired and trying to figure out what to do for dinner. I couldn’t think of anything to whip up and decided to head over to the new Chick-fil-a that opened in our neighborhood.  Boy was I pleasantly surprised.

Every Tuesday, most Chick-fil-a’s host Kids Night. On Kids Night, your kiddos will eat free with every adult combo/entree you purchase. It’s a great deal! A family of 4 can eat for around $12. It’s perfect! Yummie and pretty darn reasonable. The best part is the activities that take place. My kids had an absolutely fun time.
Last Tuesday they had a Valentine craft area where the kiddos made cards, today they had a face painter and of course the indoor play area is great and clean. My kiddos are also big fans of the “cow” mascot that comes out to greet the kids. They wanted to take pictures and dance with the cow all night long. There are usually also balloons for the kids to take home.
 I know many of you probably already know about Kids Night but I thought I would share just in case you didn’t. We had such a great time and my picky kids ate all of their food. Chick-Fil-A Kids Night will definitely become a Tuesday night tradition for our family. Before you head out next Tuesday, make sure to call your local Chick-Fil-A to make sure they particpate(most do). To learn more about Chick-Fil-A and Kids Night head here.

L.A. County Fair is almost here and you can get in for a buck!

I love county fairs and nothing quite says the end of summer like the Los Angeles County Fair. The fair kicks off its almost month long run on Saturday September 5th and runs through October 4th. It will be filled with everything that you expect with a county fair- fun musical acts, great themed areas for the kids that range from Under the Sea to Jurassic Planet, farm animals, competitions and all the fair food that your heart desires!
Here is the best part- if you head over this opening Labor Day weekend – you can get in for a buck! Yes, only one dollar. This is a great deal considering that admission for adults on the weekends is $17! Yikes!
Not only can you get in for $1, you can also take advantage of $1 drinks on all beverage stands between 1pm-4pm this weekend and $1 games, carnival rides, and select food items between 4pm-7pm this weekend.
If you are planning on heading out there- this is the weekend to go!

Kidspace Children’s Museum- Pasadena

We had the opportunity to visit the Kidspace Children’s Museum last week and I can’t wait to head back in the next couple of weeks for another visit. We were only there for two hours and easily could have stayed for another two. My children loved everything about this museum.

The Kidspace Children’s Museum is located in Pasadena and is adjacent to the Rose Bowl. You will park in Rose Bowl Parking Lot I and walk through Brookside Park to find a fun land of
exploration. I love museums that incorporate indoor and outdoor exhibit areas and Kidspace is able to do both.

We had the opportunity to explore the Early Childhood Learning Center, which is geared for children ages four and under. My son Mikey, who is a two and a half, was in tot fantasyland. He loved everything about the exhibit, especially the stuck together area, where the tots can interact with Velcro walls to create designs with large foam blocks. We had to coax him out of the area with a promise(aka “bribe”) of an Popsicle.

My daughter Lauren’s favorite exhibit was the Digging Deeper Gallery. She loves make believe and had a great time serving up patrons in Bugsy’s Diner. The Diner will teach your kiddos about the feeding habits of insects. Another favorite of my kiddos was “The Dig” and “The Shake Zone”. They are both interactive experiences that will not only educate your children but also provide them with hands on fun! I could not get either one to budge from this area. I had to tear them away in order to discover the other exhibits and areas.

After some inside play, we headed to the outdoor exhibits. The kids had a fun and very wet time playing in Kirby’s Kids Corner. It is an area that is designed for the four and under crowd and boy did they have a great time. They were completely drenched by the end of the night but also grinning from ear to ear.The kids also had a great time playing in the Splash Dance Fountain. If you are heading in the summer, make sure to pack a towel and extra clothes! I’m glad I packed some clothes because let me tell you -the kiddos were wet!!

We didn’t have the opportunity to explore the Gardens, Kids Basin (another wet area) and the climbing area. I can’t wait to head back and discover the areas that we missed.
