Prescribing sunshine and compliment with yellow

Seeing this giant yellow room at the Color Factory in San Francisco, instantly transported me back to my childhood. I couldn’t wait to jump right in, and after a few minutes I was sweaty from chasing after the kids, and trying to save them from drowning in happiness. This massive ball pit is filled with over 200,000 yellow balls and is 3 and a half feet deep. I am happy to report that no kid was lost in the process of having sunshine fun.

This was definitely our favorite room in this pop-up Instagram worthy museum. We easily could have spent hours in the sun, playing in the Color Factory yellow ball pit.

The Wonder Sound is sight to see

The Wonder Sound is a work of art by Wes Sam-Bruce, that you physically enter into and discover. Drawing influence from tree houses, empowered neighborhoods, canyons at night, and sacred plants. The Wonder Sound is sight to see children explore. After crawling through a labyrinth of dark rooms, and small nooks I went through one last curtain to find lilStrange making music, from thousands of spoons hung from the ceiling at different lengths. The light from an open window lit up her face from the darkness, and the cool breeze coming through helped to make an original score.

The Wonder Sound: A World Unfolding, is a feature documentary film by Bryan Bangerter that follow the path of the creation of a World Within a World. Diving into the content and characters involved. It threads together the ideas, heartbeat, and intent behind the large-scale, village-like installation at The New Children’s Museum.

Fletcher Cove Beach Park

Growing up in Southern California we used to go to the beach all of the time, but mostly on the weekends and for the whole day. So my beach memories are of very crowded beaches, getting sand kicked on all my stuff and always wanting to leave after a few hours. Now that we have the luxury to go to the beach midweek, and a few hours at a time, my appreciation has changed. This is the dream beach of my childhood.

Fletcher Cove is Solana Beach’s main central beach park located a couple blocks west of the intersection of Highway 101 and Loma Santa Fe Drive. The beach at Fletcher Cove isn’t big, but is still usable during high tide vs many other beaches along Solana Beach. Fletcher Cove Park has a nice little playground with grassy areas, a basketball court, and picnic tables that look out over the ocean. Plus showers and bathroom facilities (these are key when you have kids). Lifeguards here are on staff year-round.Fletcher Cove North

We plan to explore Tide Beach Park next!
