The Latest From LEGOLAND® – Splash Out to Summer 2017!

It’s getting hot here in San Diego, and what better way than to cool off at LEGOLAND’S® Water Park in Carlsbad!  A couple of months ago, my sister and I got to spend the day there with the kids to kick off their “Splash Out To Summer”.  In addition to the festivities, we also got to see behind the scenes during the construction of their newest attraction, Surfers’ Cove.  We captured all of the fun we had that day, and I’ll be sure to post when Surfers’ Cove officially opens!

While I stayed with the kids at the Water Park, my sister got to tour the area where Surfers’ Cove was being built.

This area is near where the entrance would be to Surfers’ Cove and the blue platform area will become the Surfers’ Ride.  There will also be a Beach Street Taco stand, and we got the chance to sample what will be offered.  Pictured below is a delicious fish taco!

A fun little gift pack; I’m excited to finally have a waterproof carrier for my phone!

Sunny Essentials: Strolling at Seaport Village

Strolling at Seaport Village


Salt City Optics challenged select bloggers to create a board expressing what we think would be our “Sunny Essentials” for the summer, and where we would use them.  I’m a big fan of all of our local sites in San Diego, one of my favorites being taking a leisurely walk around Seaport Village.  I like to take walks in the late afternoon to early evening during the summer, right when it’s still light enough to throw a blanket down on the grass and bathe in the glow of the sun, but cool enough to enjoy the breeze while watching the sun dip into the horizon.  I’m lucky to live in a city where shorts and sunglasses are the standard, nearly all year round!

If you would like to purchase a pair of prescription sunglasses from Salt City Optics (like those awesome “Mulholland” ones by Spy, pictured above), use the code SUNNY20 to get 20% off at check out. Cheers!
