My youngest son is super creative. He loves to draw and create imaginative stories. When I found out that our local mall was opening a store where kids get to create and publish their own books, I knew we needed to try it out. Storymakery is a really fun activity for kids! During their visit to Storymakery, the kids get to develop characters, write a story and publish their very own book! The process takes about an hour and the kids walk away with a one-of-a-kind book that they will have for the rest of their lives! So fun!

Legoland is SO rad! Our kids are finally old enough to fully enjoy it and we had the BEST time on our recent visit. But, there were definitely some highs and lows so I want to share all those with you so you can plan your own very best day ever at Legoland.
Spoiler alert: We had the BEST time at Legoland Hotel California a few weeks ago! It was our first visit and it was so much fun! I knew it would be kid-friendly but it turned out to be totally mom-friendly too. If your kids have been wanting to stay there I highly recommend it! Read on for all the details.

Sometimes I come across a recipe that I just have to make. Usually it’s full of sugar, cheese or something else that’s going straight to my thighs (damn you delicious food!). Such was the case with this Cucumber Basil Soda. It sounded unbelievably refreshing and seemed pretty easy to make. And aside from the simple syrup, it’s not super bad for you unlike regular sodas. It comes from one of my favorite restaurants, California Pizza Kitchen. I’m a big fan of CPK and when a brand new restaurant opened up right by my house, you know I had to check it out and eat all the things.
