Disney Netflix StreamTeam daytrippingmomThe Disney classics never get old and fortunately many can be found today on Netflix.

Fantasia – 1940

There has never been another animated film that can come close in comparison to Fantasia. It is the epitome of animation as an art form. It was never appreciated in it’s own time but has grown to become legendary.

Dumbo – 1941

Did you know that Dumbo was rushed through production to provide some revenue for the Disney Studio after the box office disappointment of Fantasia? It too has become of a favorite for children of all ages.  Heck, this ride also has one of the longest lines in all of Fantasyland at Disneyland, everyday.

Robin Hood – 1973

The familiar tale of Robin Hood, retold with animals and catchy music.  My husband reports he was obsessed with this movie as a child, which was back in the era when you could only catch the film in a theatrical re-release. Oo De Lally, Golly What A Day!

The Rescuers – 1977

Who knew too mice could end up into so many adventures? This fun film was an important transition time for Disney animation as the last of the original animators retired and the next generation came aboard.

The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh – 1977

This Pooh film is actually two shorter films that were put together and released as one film. They are wonderful movies that continue to introduce the younger generation to that silly old bear.

We hope to see many more of the Disney animated films make their way to Netflix. Which are some of your favorites?

We love the Legoland California Resort. We have annual passes and try to head over for some fun at least once a month(in the Summer we practically live at the water park). Last week we were invited to check out the newest addition to the Legoland Resort, Heartlake City. Let’s just say I had two very excited kiddos that were counting down the days until we made it to Legoland.



If you’re familiar with the LEGO Friends sets, you can imagine how excited the kiddos to check out Heartlake City. The newest addition to the park is fun for all kiddos, but especially fun for LEGO Friends fans. It features:

  • A Live Show : Your kiddos will sing along as they join Andrea at her tour bus. It’s a fun show that plays a few times a day.
  • Mia’s Riding Camp: This is a super cute carousel that everyone will love
  • Heartlake Stables : I think this was hands down my son’s favorite part of Heartlake City. It’s a building area and he had a great time just playing with Legos.


It’s a fun addition to the Legoland Resort and both of my kiddos enjoyed it. There’s something for everyone. My daughter loved the show and my son loved the stable/building area. It’s a cute addition to the park and you definitely have to check it out.

Summer is right around the corner and I wanted to share about another fun and free activity to keep the kiddos entertained this Summer. Starting June 1st , kiddos under 18 can bowl 2 free games all Summer long with Kids Bowl Free.  There are many participating bowling alleys across the country and quite a few in Southern California. Here’s how Kids Bowl Free works:

1. Head over here to find a bowling center/alley near you.

2.  Register with your local center.

3(Optional) You can buy a family pass for 24.95 and includes 2 free games for four members of a family. You can purchase the pass anytime during the Summer. It’s not required to buy one to get the two free games, but is great if you want to bowl with the kiddos.

Hours vary by location. It’s a great deal and if you don’t want to you don’t have to spend one cent. You can buy a few cheap pair of bowling shoes and you’re all set. For additional details and to register head here.

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!

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 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.
