We're centrally located too, right between Orange County and LA, so we have even more options. This summer we've been to the Natural History Museum of LA and visited the new dinosaur exhibit, saw a Celtic Kids Concert at the Hollywood Bowl and went to one of our favorite spots, the Long Beach Aquarium. The kids have fun and they get a little education too. I think if I home schooled I would be awesome at organizing the educational field trips. Anything beyond that though, not too sure... :)
nature center right here in Long Beach not 5 minutes away from our house, but sometimes it's nice just to try something new. I'm glad we did because this nature center was sadly, much cooler than the one by our house. Lots of neat trails representing different parts of the natural agriculture of California. Lots of different types of trees and plants, all native of course. A cool stream and plenty of quiet little spots to stop and picnic.
This guy was not real but he looks it doesn't he? I hate possums!
This guy was indeed very real though and Syd loved him!
