LEGOLAND California’s new Castle Hotel is now open!

Last week the kids and I had the pleasure to attend the grand opening of the new LEGOLAND Castle Hotel at LEGOLAND California Resort. Along with hundreds of media and special guests, we experienced a LEGOLAND-style royal ceremony that included knights on horses, a little girl squire and boy knight plus a hawk that flew the key to the Castle to Merlin the wizard. So much fun! 😀 Grand Opening of the LEGOLAND California Castle Hotel The new hotel is everything you expect it to be and more. It’s conveniently located right next to the entrance of the park, right...

Chuck E. Cheese’s now has Unlimited Games

The weekend is coming up! What are you guys doing? We’re thinking about going to Chuck E. Cheese’s again, one of our favorite places for games and activities for kids. 🙂 We went last Saturday and had so much fun! I’ll add some pictures below. Mason, who’ll be 6 years old in July, loves it. Secretly, I actually think my hubby loves all the games even more than he does… lol We are all excited to visit again because select restaurants in the San Diego area are offering Unlimited Games and our local Chuck E. Cheese’s is one of them....

Our Brick-or-Treat Party Night at LEGOLAND California [pictures]

Ever been to LEGOLAND after dark? I have. 😀 Just like last year, the kids, my husband and I were invited to attend one of the Brick-or-Treat Party Nights. During this event, LEGOLAND California celebrates Halloween with the little ones and it’s pretty awesome! Brick-or-Treat Party Nights is a special event that takes place every Saturday leading up to Halloween (the first one was on September 30) and tickets are $49 if purchased online in advance. We went this past Saturday. The event started at 5pm, which means that after an hour or so we were literally walking around in...

FBE’s monthly beauty giveaway + throwback pics of our son’s first day of school

Last time I was here a few days ago and I mentioned that Mason (5) had started kindergarten (kleuterschool, in Dutch). I promised to post some pics of him on Instagram, but like with most of my promises recently…I didn’t keep it (sadly). I’ve actually been off social media for a while now and it’s kind of a ‘step’ to get back on… I have been checking Facebook once in a while, but that’s about it. Because I didn’t post these pics there, I decided to put them here instead. So here’s Mason posing and holding different objects on his...

LEGO Batman Movie Days at LEGOLAND CA [our day in pictures]

Hi everyone! On February 18-19 and 25-26 LEGOLAND California hosted the LEGO Batman Movie Days and my family and I got to attend the activities! We went this past weekend and we had a blast, especially my son, who got to meet his superhero (remember Halloween at LEGOLAND, when he dressed up as Batman?). 😀 During these two weekends, LEGOLAND guests got to meet the LEGO superhero during this celebration of the Warner Bros. Pictures’ feature film, which also includes photo opportunities with the scene-stealing star, a themed scavenger hunt and LEGO Batman-inspired LEGO build activities. We loved it! We...

Mommy review: SoCozy hair products for kids (and a sweepstake!)

Both my kids were born with a full head of hair. My 4-year-old son has thick straight hair, whereas his sister (who will be 5 months in a few days) has more fine, curly hair. One thing they have in common: they both have A LOT of hair! For this reason, I make sure to use good products on their hair; products they use at (kids) salons. For Mason’s hair I’ve been using SoCozy. Mason has been using SoCozy’s Boing Shampoo, Conditioner and Leave-In Spray. Seems like a lot for a boy who’s only 4 years old, but he doesn’t...

Our Halloween: Brick-or-Treat party night at LEGOLAND California

This year we celebrated Halloween in a big way by starting the celebrations at LEGOLAND California Resort for the Brick-or-Treat party nights, which is the BIGGEST kids’ Halloween celebration here in San Diego! Each year LEGOLAND transforms into a not-too-spooky Halloween party, where families are able to go trick-or-treating throughout the Park. The park is open every Saturday in October and this past Saturday my family and I were there! #BrickorTreat 😀 Besides the LEGO themed (of course!) ‘treat stations’ where kids to trick-or-treat for candy, there was also lots of entertainment, like a Ghost Cruise adventure, a pop-badge challenge...

Upcoming review: Battle of two eye creams

Remember me? I’m still here! Barely though. I think I’ve been getting about an average of 4 hours of sleep every night. I can barely keep my eyes open. I have to admit, my first born Mason is 4 years old now and I had forgotten how much work a newborn is. It seems like such a long time ago that he was this little… Baby Kayla is doing great though! She’s now almost 6 weeks old and growing like grass. We’ve been breastfeeding, which is going really well. She looks a lot like Mason, but I do see a...

Baby Kayla is here! Born on September 9, 2016

I haven’t written anything here for a while now and there’s a good reason for it…I had the baby! She was born on Friday 9/9 at the Mary Birch hospital here in San Diego. Her name is Kayla and she’s as healthy and beautiful as can be. I couldn’t be happier! Kayla made a big and quite unexpected entrance into this world, because she wasn’t due until the end of the month. I’d been having painful cramps for a couple of days, but when I went to see my doctor that Wednesday before she was born and he had told...

My baby bump at 36 weeks

Hi everyone! I’m here with another baby update! I’m 37 weeks pregnant now, which means that the baby is now full term. She is the size of a winter melon and theoretically I still have less than 3 weeks to go. A little voice inside of me is telling me that she’ll probably show up sooner… Honestly, I’m not quite ready yet, so I hope she’ll stay inside a little bit longer. 😀 These pictures were taken last week when my baby bump was 36 weeks! Also, click here to see pics of my first pregnancy when I was 36...

We celebrated our toddler’s 4th birthday at LEGOLAND California Resort!

This past Sunday it was finally the day! The day our baby boy turned 4 years old. Woohoo! I still can’t believe I’m the mom of a 4-year-old. Not that long ago I was holding a tiny, little newborn in my hands…where did the time go? Mason had been looking forward to his birthday for weeks. I’ve literally lost count of the amount of times I had to hear: ‘is it my birthday yet?’ 😀 For his birthday we went to LEGOLAND California Resort in Carlsbad. None of us had ever been there, so this seemed like a great opportunity....

Summer fun! My toddler is taking swim lessons at SafeSplash #IAmSafeSplash

One of our Summer activities has been going to the pool. There are multiple pools at our apartment complex that we’re gladly taking advantage of. Why not, right? My toddler loves to swim! If it were up to him, he would be in the pool literally every single day. And whenever we want to switch it up, there’s always the beach. There are so many nice beaches here in San Diego. It’s been almost a year that we moved (back) from Vegas to California and living by the coast is definitely something I appreciate. 🙂 Being surrounded by water means...
