Finding the Perfect Gift Just for Mom with Don Roberto Jewelers

Gosh! Can you believe it's already almost May? The year is flying by and you know what is just around the corner? This year, Mother's Day or Dia de las Madres falls on May 10th, now you can't say you haven't been warned. 

Since becoming a mother myself, I have loved being able to celebrate Mother's day. I love the little gifts that my girls make at school, especially the homemade cards with their little hand prints. But I must admit, every year I look forward to the big gift that my husband picks out. This year, I'm dropping hints, because I could use some new jewelry. My girls are not babies anymore, I can wear earrings without being in fear of an infant yanking them out or putting my necklace in their mouth.

You can't go wrong with a nice new rose gold watch or gold and pearl stud earrings that you can find at Don Roberto Jewelers. These would make such subtle but beautiful additions to your jewelry collection. Of course, you can't forget your own mama on Mother's Day, check out the beautiful "Mama" rose charm necklace, I know my Mama would love that. 

As a gift to my lucky readers Don Roberto Jewelers is offering a 25% off discount code to any online purchase when you enter BP25FP at checkout.

 How amazing is that? 

So make sure to head over to Don Roberto Jewelers and check out their Spring catalog. They have such beautiful pieces that any Mama would feel so blessed to receive this Mother's Day.

Summer Fun at Buccaneer Cove, Castle Park! ($7 off inside)

Summer is here and kids are out of school, now what? Well, if you need a fun place to take them let me tell you about Buccaneer Cove at Castle Park in Riverside, CA. This was our first time here, since my girls are finally tall enough for the really fun stuff. And we had so much fun!
Located off of the 91 freeway in Riverside, we've passed Castle Park so many times before. My oldest daughter is a thrill seeker already at 5 years old, she loves this stuff! The happiest I ever see her, is when she is going down a slide or riding a ride. Castle Park is the perfect place to take the kids and during the Summer, they can cool off at Buccaneer Cove. 
This is the welcome map located at the entrance of the park. She loves maps!
We were some of the first guests to arrive on this hot day in Riverside and were so excited to jump right in. I loved the bright colors all around, it's more exciting that way! 
A piece of advice, you can't really play here and not get wet, or only get wet a little. When you climb the stairs to get to the slides, you are being splashed by water the entire time. I didn't think I was going to be getting wet, but my girls needed a little initial nudge, so of course, I was immediately soaked. 
I only had to walk through it once, then my daughters were good to go on their own. One of my favorite parts, as a parent, is that there are so many attendants around the slides, you can feel safe letting your kids play and walk from slide to slide. 
These are some of the bungalows they have available to rent, there are more located on the other side of the slides. I personally think that these are a great idea, since there isn't much shade anywhere else in the area. There are rows of chairs available to sit and sunbathe, but not many in the shade. Also, there are small changing tents available at the entrance to do quick bathing suit changes.  
If slides are a little daunting for your little ones, there are a lot of areas surrounding the slides, like this where the kids can play and get wet. 
My littlest one wasn't in the best mood that day and after playing in the water for just a few minutes, she wanted to sit and watch. Sometimes you have days where you don't know what kind of mood the kids are going to be in. She usually loves water and the slides, but on this day, she decided to not be in the mood. Luckily, the snacks I had in my bag kept her occupied until my other daughter was ready. 
"Mom! Look! A pirate! Take our picture!"

Although my girls were most excited about Buccaneer Cove, I was excited to show them Mini-Golf for the very first time. This is one of the best Mini-Golf places around, the courses are fun and the view is amazing! 
How beautiful is this? There is so much to do and see here! We had a blast doing Mini-Golf for the first time and when we were done with that, we headed straight into the arcade to win some tickets. After the arcades we had some lunch and then went on only a few rides, since of course, my littles were pretty tired by then. But what I loved was that the park seemed to accommodate kids of all ages. There are a good amount of rides and games for both the older kids and the little ones. We had such a great time, my girls haven't stopped talking about this place. 

So readers listen up! I have a promo code for you! 
If you mention "blog2014" you can get unlimited rides, golf, and admission into Buccaneer Cove for $12.99! Normal price is $19.99.

Argh Matey! Come Live the Pirate's Life at Pirate's Dinner Adventure (Discount inside)

I'm talking about Pirate's Dinner Adventure (Winner of Certificate of Excellence by Trip Advisor December 2013).  Personally, I was waiting until my girls were a little bit older. And what better time than Summer break? They are now ready to experience the two-hour live performance featuring an astonishing display of special-effects wizardry, aerial artistry, swashbuckling swordplay and dynamic duels. What makes this dinner show special is the interactive element, more than 150 guests have the chance to play an actual role in each show! Sounds so fun!

I mentioned dinner right? 
If you're curious about the food, take a peek at the menu for the four-course feast fit for a pirate king:
Pre-show Appetizers
Vegetable Soup or Fresh Garden Salad
Roasted Half Chicken or BBQ Beef Kabobs
Buttery Mashed Potatoes or Caribbean Rice and Fudge Brownie a la mode. 
*Vegetarian and kids meals are available. 
The meal also includes unlimited soft drinks and complimentary coffee.
I say it's perfect for Summer with their fully-enclosed, air-conditioned venue. Complete with two full bars, gift and photo souvenir shops. The show also offers complimentary on-site bus, car and handicapped parking. And guests from all over the world are accommodated by a multilingual staff with exceptional customer service.

For $25 off Adult and $15 off Child admission over the phone and mention code "USFAM" at time of purchase. Reservations required.
Pirate's Dinner Adventure is conveniently located off the 5 and 91 freeways in the heart of the Buena Park entertainment zone just 10 minutes away from the Disneyland Resort and 15 minutes from John Wayne Airport with domestic/international service.
