Kids Bowl Free


The countdown for Summer has begun at our home. The last day of work for me is June 11th and for my kids June 13th. We are planning on having a great time this summer and are already planning what every week will look like.  I know some kiddos will finish school next week, some towards the end of the month, and others at the beginning of next month.

One program we are planning on taking advantage of, is Kids Bowl Free. The program allows kids to receive two free bowling games daily, all summer long.

All you have to do is register each one of your kids. Families can get two free games for up to six children per day, or you could do a  family pack for the whole summer for  $24.95. Family packs allow up to four adults to enjoy bowling all summer long. My friends and I have signed up our kiddos and I got a family pack. I can’t wait to have fun with the kiddos this summer!

Summer Fun at the Brea Mall

Fun at the Disney Store

Fun at the Disney Store

I think I’ve shared before that I love the Brea Mall. I was given a fun challenge to see how much fun we could have at the mall for $50 bucks this summer! Boy did we have a great time. First off we stopped off and grabbed some Jamba Juice. Yummo! It is our go to summer treat! We also hit the Food Court and picked up some Panda Express. We sat by and people watched. It was a total blast! Plus I love love how cool it is inside the mall. Our AC has not been blasting as cool as I would like it to be, and it’s nice to be able to enjoy some cool air on a hot Summer day.

We then headed to the Disney Store and I gave the kiddos a budget of $10 each. We could have spent hours there. They had a blast picking their own toy and it was so fun to see them figure out what they could afford and what they couldn’t. We finished off our day by playing down near the center court fountain. It is my son’s favorite spot in the Brea Mall. He absolutely loves people watching and dipping his hands in the water. We had a great afternoon filled with fun people watching, new Disney Toys, Yummie refreshing drinks, and of course a delish lunch. What would you do with $50. Do you head to the mall in the summer?

Fun with the Kids this Summer: Movies at the Beach


It’s Friday, Friday! Hooray for the weekend. It is starting to feel like summer. The days are getting a longer, and the kids are either out of school, or almost out. If you’re looking for something to do with the family this summer, you have to check out Movies on the Beach at Newport Dunes Resort.

Bring your blankets, your lawn chairs and a jacket, because it can get chili in the evening by the beach. The movies are free, all you have to do is pay for parking. It’s a super fun and very inexpensive night out with the family.

Movies play at dusk every Friday and Saturday night until the end of summer. For additional information, or if you would like to check out the movie schedule, head here.
