Happenings at Knott’s Berry Farm
aka Merry Farm.
We missed Halloween but Knott’s Berry Farm still has lots of fun left for the year and more 2015! We went a few years ago to Camp Snoopy and the kids loved it.
They have their Merry Farm, Berry Market, also purchase a Thanksgiving Dinner (I never knew this) it is a great deal too. Season passes can be purchased for the 2015 year.
Knott’s Merry Farm has all sorts of fun for Christmas time.
- Santa’s Christmas Cabin; Christmas wouldn’t be complete without visiting Santa Claus. The Wilderness Dance Hall in Ghost Town becomes home to Santa’s Christmas Cabin for the holiday season.
- Live entertainment like brand new ice spectacular, Merry Christmas, Snoopy!
- Kids can dance with Charlie Brown, Linus and Lucy at Camp Snoopy Theatre.
- Lets not forget Knott’s World Famous Desserts! Just smoMaple Lollipops, churros from the Churro Factory, cakes, cookies, muffins and gingerbread men. I can’t wait to have the gingerbread cookies! Those are my favorite.
Some pictures from our last visit:
Daeton enjoying a GIANT soft pretzel.
Kaela enjoyed a giant bow headband.
In the market place we got to see an artist create beautiful work using people’s names.
I also got the kids a necklace that had a grain of rice with their names carved on it. Definitely neat watching the artist create it.

Fun Day At Universal Studios
Despicable Me & Super Silly Fun Land.
This week I had the awesome opportunity to bring my sister and our kids to Universal Studios in Hollywood, California. I hadn’t been to Universal Studios in over 20 years (boy had it changed) and my children had only gone once (with their dad) a long time ago. We went specifically to check out Despicable Me Minion Mayhem and the Super Silly Fun Land. We toured the whole top top-to-bottom and back again and spent the entire day there.
We went prepared for the Super Silly Fun Land, Super Silly Fun Land, an all-new elaborate wet & dry play zone unique to the park and adjacent to their “Despicable Me Minion Mayhem” 3D Ride. We knew we’d get wet so we planned ahead and brought a change of clothing. The Super Silly Fun Land is great for kids of all ages. Even little ones were able to stay entertained and cool for hours on end.
Check out the photos to see some highlights of our day at Universal Studios.
Another Minion photo opp! The kids had an absolute blast exploring the whole park. They loved the Super Silly Fun Land the best. I loved seeing the Apollo 13 props. We will definitely be going back soon. Living in California and having great weather has terrific advantages! It is always a great time to go to Universal Studios.

Knott’s Camp Spooky
If you love Halloween but don’t want things that are too scary for your kids, you have to check out Knott’s Berry Farm’s Camp Spooky. Kids can dress in costumes and trick-or treat with a map provide. Snoopy and the Peanuts gang will be there for awesome photo opportunities. You and your kids can sing and dance at Charlie Brown’s Spooktacular Show. This is a non-scary celebration.
Cheer instead of fear!
I have taken the kids to Knott’s Berry Farm before. The last time was 2011. We had a blast and stayed there the whole day until the park was closing. But this will be our first time at Camp Spooky.
If you are in Southern California and are looking for something to do for Halloween fun, look no further.
THIS IS THE PLACE!!
When it comes to theme parks there is nothing to compare it to. We love this place! My kids are not huge ride fans so this is a place where there is so much more. They have lots of shows, small rides, a awesome market place. Last time I got a grain of rice with my daughter’s name carved on it and put in a capsule. Educational things to see too, like Indian Trails. So many awesome thing!
This is also the perfect time of year to go to a theme park in Southern California. The weather is great.

My sister and I love taking our children to Legoland. We do it over the summer as some family vacation time before school starts. We went two years ago and the kids were excited to go again this year.
We arrived at Legoland in the morning and stayed until closing time.
We went to every section of the park. Enjoyed the rides and games. Even a live show. I grabbed ice cream during the show and the kids enjoyed snacking on it while they watched the actors run around the castle and grab kids from the audience.
Legoland full-size people were great.
This is me, being silly! I couldn’t help it!
My sister and daughter went on this crazy ride. That is them. Twisting and turning in the air. I stood on the ground with the boys watching and laughing. It is great going with another adult. We were able to tag team with the kids when one wanted to do something and the others didn’t. Unfortunately, I can not remember the name of it.
The three of us. My sister put hairspray dye in our hair. Part of a fun family tradition when we go to busy places. Part of it is to be able to see the kids easier and the other part is that it is just crazy and fun.
Last time we were there was two years ago, so it was before the water park was open. We got to check it out for the first time. I did not have my camera much for in there since I didn’t want it wet but we had a BLAST! Best water park ever! I think we could have spent the whole day there. Next year we will have to go for two days. One day at Legoland and one day at the water park, or split up both days.
I took this kids to San Diego this summer to have a mini-vacation. They wanted to go to Sea World since we had been a few years ago and they both had fond memories. My sister and nephew came as well.
When we got there my sister had the whole place mapped out and our day planned. We first went to the whale and dolphin show. The kids loved it. It was close to the entrance and we got great seats. How about that? Better than an amusement park with lots of walking and lines. I took over 200 photos of the day but thought I’d post some unique ones that are my favorite.
We took a private behind-the-scenes tour and this wonderful woman walked backwards almost the whole time. She was awesome. We got to see baby sharks in their ‘purses’ getting ready to hatch, turtles in outdoor tanks, dolphins and more. Daeton is sitting by the turtles as the come up out of the water and flap their fins. It was neat to see them so close. You can see dolphins behind me. They were curious to see what we were doing so kept swimming close by to watch us.
This was underneath the ‘dinner with Shamu.’ We didn’t get a picture with Shamu behind us but a sweet employee offered to take a few pictures so that I can be in them as well. We stayed here a while, resting in the shade, and Shamu eventually came and swam by quiet a few times.
