The children had exclusive access to LEGOLAND Water Park following a check presentation as LEGOLAND California Resort donated $80,000 to help the chapters continue their programs that strengthen families during difficult times.

“We are grateful for our outstanding partners at San Diego County McDonald’s and LEGOLAND California Resort for helping us provide lodging, programs and support services to families while their critically ill or injured child is being treated at a San Diego-area hospital,” said Chuck Day, president and CEO of Ronald McDonald House Charities of San Diego. “Through their support, and that of the community, we’re able to keep families close to one another – regardless of their situation or ability to pay.”

“As we celebrate our 40th anniversary of providing comfort, care, and support to children and their families in Southern California, we recognize this anniversary and the growth of our charity could never be achieved without the generous and continued support of donors like the McDonald’s Owner Operators Association of Southern California and LEGOLAND. We are deeply grateful to these committed companies and their employees,” stated Vince Bryson, CEO of Ronald McDonald House Charities of Southern California.

In Surfers’ Cove, kids will be able to race their friends at Riptide Racers timed water slides, enjoy an epic splash-ground at Wipeout Lagoon and enlighten their taste buds with the new Beach Street Tacos! Riptide Racers is a competitive water raceway designed for children to jump on a mat and race down one of six slides with family and friends for the fastest time! Each slide stands 17 feet high and is more than 100 feet in length. Wipeout Lagoon is our version of a “spray ground” with multiple water jets splashing on and off and plenty of new LEGO® models like a surfing dog to create a fun place to cool off this summer.

Summertime Safety Tips to Keep Your Family Safe and Happy

Summer is right around the corner and most families thoughts are turning to fun in the sun together. While activities like fireworks, swimming and playing outdoors all day long are fun, it’s important to remember that these activities can be dangerous as well. Luckily, there are summertime safety tips for everything from pest control to fireworks handling to help you keep your family safe, sound, and happy over the long summer months. With that in mind, read on below for a few of the top tips out there for summer safety.

Effective Pest Control

Summer means fun but it also means bugs will descend on the outside and the inside of your home. It’s important to keep you and your family safe from pests such as ants, spiders, and roaches during the summer season. The best way to do that is by hiring effective Phx pest control or a similarly reputable service in your area to treat your yard and home. Spraying your yard and home yourself can be dangerous to your family. The chemicals used in pesticides can make your family and your pets extremely ill and can even prove to be fatal.

Storing Handguns

During the summer the children are around more because school is out. You won’t always be in the house to watch them, so storing your handguns safely becomes even more important. Having a gun safe is the perfect way to ensure that tragedy doesn’t strike your home and family. Always be responsible and teach your children to be responsible around firearms. Even then, keep them stored properly so curious children don’t think they are a toy and end your summer with a tragedy that could have been avoided.

Fireworks Handling

With the coming summer comes the fourth of July. While it’s fun to get together with friends and family to celebrate our country’s freedom, fireworks can be dangerous. Following a few simple rules for fireworks safety will go a long way towards keeping your family out of the emergency room over the fourth. Never allow children to handle the fireworks. A responsible adult should light them and then get a safe distance away before they ignite. Make sure that any fireworks that are being launched into the sky have a safe place to land so as not to cause fires.

Safe Outdoor Play

Summer is a time of hitting the yard and exploring for most kids. From jumping on the trampoline to playing ball with friends in the yard, it’s fun and kids will be kids. They don’t think about the dangers. Making sure to stay outside with your little ones is the best way of keeping them safe, especially if you live near a busy road. Putting up a fence is an option, but not foolproof. Staying outside with your kids while they play is your best and safest bet.

Safety When Swimming

The rules don’t change whether you’re at the beach or swimming in your pool in the backyard. While fun and the perfect way to cool off on a hot summers day, water is dangerous. You should supervise your children every minute while they are in the water. It’s best to go in the water with younger children and keep an expert eye on older children. Discourage horseplay and make sure to enforce any restrictions when they break the rules.

These are just a few tips for keeping your family safe during summer fun. From safe outdoor play to hiring the experts to come spray your yard and home, these tips will ensure that you and your kids have a fun summer and are safe at the same time!

TOGUARD Dash Cam Review!!

How many times have I complained about Southern California’s freeways?? Too many to count that’s how many! Why are they called freeway’s? That makes them sound fast, when in actuality they should be called parking lots. 8 lanes of stopped cars. If The Husband has his way I’ll be living in Wyoming in the near future. (Yes, that makes my head hurt!)Now, if everyone drove as safe and cautiously as I do (MAN! I am one funny, funny girl!!) I wouldn’t need a dash cam. No one would! However, since the freeways here are dead stop to 60+ MPH a dash cam is an important tool for my car. I was very glad that I had a dash cam when I had a minor accident recently (no damage, no one hurt). Having the piece of mind of a dash cam made me feel really good. UP until I realized that my camera didn’t do an auto loop recording. So, once my memory card was full it stopped recording! ACKKKK I had tons of  videos from last year!!! Thankfully I didn’t need the recording. BUT! Lesson learned!!

I now have a TOGUARD Dash Cam! Small in size but powerful!! This camera is full HD 1080P. This little gem loops over and over!! As soon as the micro SD card fills up the camera starts over, recording over the oldest 1, 2 or 3 minute video clip. I have uninterrupted monitoring!!

This is a small, palm sized dash cam with super night vision!
TOGUARD HD Dash CamI love that this dash cam is small and in no way obstructs my view out the front windshield. The suction cup is strong! This little puppy stays put even on a very hot day.
TOGUARD Dash CamThe TOGUARD arrives with an extra long cord that plugs into the cigarette lighter. The best part? TOGUARD arrives with a 16gb micro SD card! I was very pleased with that extra perk.

The camera remembers all of my settings and continues to record for a couple of seconds after the car turns off.

When I start the car the TOGUARD comes on right away. Set up was super easy! I had my preferences updated along with the date and time in less than 10 minutes! I love that the TOGUARD is small enough that it doesn’t scream ‘HEY!! Break in here and grab a dash cam!’


Not a single one! Great resolution, 1080 resolution. Just don’t forget to remove the protective piece from the dash cam lens, or your video quality will not be as clear and crisp. (Yes, I know this by experience)
