Blogiversary Day 5: Win a Prize Pack at Irvine Park Railroad! 7 Things To Do at Irvine Regional Park

Welcome to Day 5 of our online Blogiversary celebration! Today, we are going to talk about the many different activities Irvine Regional Park offers, and why it's one of our favorite places for play dates in Orange County. The park is huge!  Let's clear this up. When we started going there, I was confused with the names. Is it Irvine Regional Park or Irvine Park Railroad? Also, where is OC Zoo? Well, both Irvine Park Railroad and OC Zoo are located inside Irvine Regional Park in Orange, CA.

Blogiversary Day 4: Win Star Wars itty bittys® @Hallmark! #LoveHallmark #StarWars

Welcome to Day 4 of our online Blogiversary Party! Today we're featuring something a little different. One of our readers requested we offer something Star Wars during our party, and of course, I listened. First thing that came to my mind was Star Wars itty bitty's. I just adore the itty bittys® at Hallmark, don't you?  They're soft, huggable, and come in so many different characters (not just Star Wars) to fit everyone's unique style.


We love everything Star Wars right now, and these arrived just in time to surprise my kids on their last day of school. Hallmark sent us Yoda™, Chewbacca™, Han Solo™ and Princess Leia™ set, Darth Vader, and R2-D2. I think his smile says it all, because they're fun to play with and collect. I think they also make great gifts for any occasion (party favors, gift baskets, etc). Also available in their collection is the collector's set which includes Luke Skywalker™, C-3PO™, Obi-Wan Kenobi™ and Jawa™ in an exclusive collectible box. They're just so cool, and we can't wait to pick them up along with a new Hoth Collector Set available in August!
