OC Fair 2012

I'm finally getting around to sharing some of our OC Fair pictures. We visited the fair a couple weeks ago and had a really great time.  JD loves seeing the animals and we of course love tasting the food!

Pepsi NEXT: Paradise Mango & Cherry Vanilla

Last week I received an email asking me if I would like to participate in a taste preview of Pepsi NEXT's new summer flavors (the flavors were not disclosed to me at the time). I LOVE Pepsi, so I jumped at the opportunity.  I received my preview package last Friday and was completely in awe of their fun packaging, not to mention my Pepsi arrived ice cold!  Three flavors were included in my preview, Pepsi NEXT (which I enjoy and keep in our fridge), Pepsi NEXT Cherry Vanilla and Pepsi NEXT Paradise Mango.  I tried the Cherry Vanilla first and was really impressed, it was good.  I was a little hesitant to try the Paradise Mango, but once I did I was pleasantly surprised, it's delicious!

Both of Pepsi NEXT's new flavors are available at Walmart Supercenter stores nationwide and wherever Pepsi products are sold beginning July 15 through September 8. Yes, these flavors are only available for the Summer, so hurry!

"The delicious blend of flavors that takes cola into the next generation. Pepsi NEXT is a refreshingly delicious blend of everything you love about cola with less than half the sugar of Regular Pepsi.

After many years, Pepsi’s experts finally discovered the perfect balance of ingredients and flavors needed to create a deliciously rich taste with less than half the sugar. It’s the optimal level of flavor that maintains great cola taste without crossing over into diet territory.

So now you can enjoy the satisfaction and full flavor you crave without compromise!"

Note: This post is based solely on my thoughts and opinions. Other than my receipt of the flavor preview package, I was not compensated by Pepsi to write this post.Photobucket

California Science Center & a Ride on the Metro

Last Saturday we took a little trip to the California Science Center. JD had never been, so he was pretty excited.  There is so much to see and do at the Science Center, and visiting the center is free!  After walking around for about an hour we hopped on the Metro (it's walking distance from the Science Center and The Natural History Museum), arrived at Union Station about 15 minutes later, and headed to Placita Olvera for lunch. So now we've officially begun crossing things off of our Summer Bucket List...only 20 something more to go!

Garcia Family Summer Bucket List

Lately I've come across so many wonderful summer bucket lists on some of my favorite blogs, including a really cool one over at Our Precious Jas.  It seems like such a fun idea, so I decided I would create one for our little family too! I started with 25 must do summer activities, but I'm pretty sure we will add more before summer ends. Does your family have a summer bucket list?!

Pretend City Children's Museum

On Sunday I took JD to Pretend City Children's Museum in Irvine.

Pretend City Children’s Museum provides children with unlimited opportunities to develop creativity and learn through purposeful play. Through 17 interactive exhibits and activities guided by a highly trained professional staff, children learn foundational math, reading and science skills, while fostering curiosity, creativity, critical thinking, problem solving, organization, teamwork, self-confidence and socialization.

JD had a really great time. He especially loved the construction site and of course getting money from the ATM after working hard all day!
