New Home Collections Coming to Great Park Neighborhoods | #meetthebuilders #ad

This is a sponsored post.

Over the weekend, we stopped by to attend a celebration in Irvine which introduced the newest addition to the Great Park Neighborhoods - Beacon Park. It was a great opportunity to explore the different collections, floor plans, neighborhood amenities, and learn what the community was all about. It's the first neighborhood with direct access into the Orange County Great Park!  

While we walked around leisurely to Meet The Builders, the family and I also enjoyed yummy cookies, Hubert's organic lemonade, fruit pie bites from I Like Pie Bake Shop, and coffee from The Aussie Bean. The event was well organized and comfortable. Start planning (or designing) now for your future home in the community starting this summer!

Fun Facts: New Voyage to the Iron Reef Ride @Knotts | #KnottsIronReef Media Preview

On Wednesday, May 13th, we attended an opening ceremony and media preview of the new 4D interactive ride at Knott's Berry Farm -  Voyage to the Iron Reef. Gamers, you will love it! The ride is located on the second floor of Buffalo Nickel Arcade next to Charles M Schulz Theatre and Johnny Rockets.

We were all given 3-D glasses and boarded four passengers per submarine. Our mission is to fight the mysterious creatures underneath the Boardwalk including the Kraken Queen to save the park. As we dive into the waters, we were in for an amazing ride as we're blasting them with our freeze rays and fighting them off as a team. (Each player in the submarine has their own ray color.) Our seats rotate, and we were in constant motion. It felt like we were on this great adventure. At the end of the ride which lasted about 4 minutes, we all weigh in to see who got the most points. It is so much fun! You'll also see the best players of the year on the score boards.

Review: ANNIE Musical Tour @SegerstromArts  | #AnnieOnTour #SCFTA

Last week I had the exciting opportunity to take my six-year-old to her first live theater
experience at the Segerstrom Center for the Arts and what better musical for a girl than ANNIE!
I love live musical theater and grew up with the movie adaptation of ANNIE, but I had never seen
it performed on stage. It was an amazing experience for both of us to share together.

Adventures with Dolphin Quest Tour on Catalina Island | @VisitCatalina

We were thrilled when we were invited to experience Dolphin Quest Tour on Santa Catalina Island this year. The excursion is a one hour guided tour out of Avalon Harbor in search of dolphins in their natural environment on a high-speed craft. Imagine riding beside and in a pod of dolphins!

Family Dining Adventure at Medieval Times Buena Park Castle | @MedievalTimesCA #MTfan

This is a post written by Lett for Medieval Times in Buena Park, CA.

On Thursday night, we had the opportunity to go to Medieval Times in Buena Park. We had been there a couple of times with my family before, but this time we brought along a friend visiting from France. It was so fun to experience Medieval Times with someone who has never been there!

Parking is FREE! Not many places let your park for free these days so that is really a nice surprise.
Be sure to get there early! Doors open 75 minutes prior to the show, and the earlier you arrive, the better your seats will be. Although to be honest, there really isn't a bad seat in the arena.
