The Best Part of Living in Southern California

Is it too cliche to say the beach and the weather? I know this is an expected response but it is true. I love knowing that within ten minutes or two hours, I can be at the beach, the desert or the mountains. There are not many places in the US that can offer surfing and skiing in the same day.

My Favorite Local Kid-Friendly Activity

Without question, I love being outdoors with the kids. They love to swim and we spend most of our time at the pools, our local water parks, or the beach. If we are not swimming, I love taking them on walks or playing at the park. We are also incredibly fortunate to have so many amusement parks and museums in our area. Disneyland is a big one for us and I will never be sick of going there with the family (especially at Christmas time!). Some other favorites are the Aquarium of the Pacific, Discovery Center, and Sea World.

The Biggest Challenge of Raising a Child Here

The greatest challenge for raising children in Orange County is teaching them that there is an entire world out there with individuals that live differently than they do. It is incredibly important to my husband and I that we show our children how privileged they are and that it is important to give back. Orange County has a stigma of being "cookie cutter" and in many ways, it is. I want my children to grow up seeing past that, understanding that the world does not work behind (as many like to say) the "orange curtain."
