One persons junk is another persons treasure

This famous quote (I don’t remember who said it) is all so true with this person. Derek “Deek” Diedricksen’s designs little houses, cabins, get a way places out of junk. A trinketer (new word) of sorts.

Watch this unique video and you will see that in order to live simply you really don’t need a whole lot.

I would enjoy building one of these in my backyard for my kids!

Santa Clarita beach bus to Santa Monica

Take a bus from Santa Clarita to the Santa Monica beach for a round trip total of $6.00! Yes that’s right! Give your car a break, don’t pay $4 bucks in gas per gallon, don’t get frustrated driving in traffic, don’t pay for parking and enjoy the bus ride into Santa Monica on Saturday’s and Sunday’s until September. You can even walk over to the new mall near the boardwalk and have fun shopping.

Santa Clarita Cross Country course in Central Park

The Santa Claria’s Cross Country trail course in Central Park is great for running, walking or even jogging with skippy. I have walked the whole trail, which goes over the hill and down to Newhall Ranch Road.

Take a walk  on the Santa Clarita Cross Country trail today!

Star Dance Center in Newhall Rocks!

My daughter signed up for a Parks and Rec class of Musical Theater at the Star Dance Center in Newhall and the play they did was Camp Rock 2. The kids were of all ages and they rehearsed their play at the Star Dance Center located on Lyons Ave for approx. 2 months.

Tonight was the big performance and they were privileged to use  the big stage at Canyon Theatre Guild in Old Town Newhall. What a thrill that was for all the kids!

They all performed so so well!  It was truly enjoyable to watch them!

The Musical Theater instructor was Ms. Merrideth Lesyshyn who did a fabulous job with all these kids!

The Canyon Theatre Guild is a wonderful local Theatre for all to enjoy. They have classes and various types of theatre camps. I have had 2 children perform there and know of others who have gone to the summer camp and only good things can be said!
