Wet’n Wild Las Vegas opened up it’s new park last year. I was really excited for the park to come back to Las Vegas. I have such fond memories of spending the summer at Wet’n Wild and I couldn’t wait to bring my kids. I just wasn’t sure my kids were ready to go and honestly the thought of taking them and having to watch the kids all day seemed exhausting.
Monster Jam World Finals 2014, this 2 day event, going on it’s 15th year was held in Las Vegas, Nevada at Sam Boyd Stadium. The weather was perfect for Monster Jam fans. Disclosure: I was provided tickets on behalf of US Family Guide to attend the show. All opinions given are mine.
Being first timers attending a Monster Jam event, I really didn’t know what to expect. I wasn’t sure if the event would be family friendly or entertaining for my boys ages 6 and 10.
Craig Ranch Regional Park here in North Las Vegas, Nevada was amazing! If you are looking for something fun to do with the family, you’ll definitely want to head to this park.
Craig Ranch Regional Park was once a golf course that was converted into a park. The 170 acre park was purchased by North Las Vegas back in 2005, but finally opened it’s “doors” on October 25th, 2013. It definitely took time opening. The park had its ups and down with construction, funding and maintenance costs to where we never thought it was going to open. I’ve been anxiously waiting to check out the park and that day finally came.
The park is absolutely gorgeous! There really is something for everyone to do.
We spent about 2 hours at the park just checking it out. There were 4 playgrounds for the kids to choose from, the pond, the water area, volleyball area, baseball area, the 5 acre dog park, the garden, fields, skate park and so much more. We could spend all day there and not get bored.
These pictures don’t do the park justice. You really need to check out Craig Ranch Regional Park for yourself. Be sure to check out my video for an overview of the park and comment below and let me know if what your favorite thing at the park was.

Have you been looking for a quick and fun event to do with your kids on the weekend?
Be sure to check out Lowes Build and Grow Clinics.
Every other week Lowes holds their build and grow clinic for the kids. The event is free and the kids love it.
It’s a great way to get out of the house and do something with your kids, without it costing you a dime. If you’re a first timer, Lowes will give your child an apron and safety goggles. Most of the projects take about 30 minutes to complete and upon completion the kids earn patches. Not to mention all the skills they learn while putting these kits together.
This is not a sponsored post for Lowe’s . It’s just something I do with my kids that’s free, fun and gets them out of the house.
Be sure to register for the upcoming events, since they fill up pretty fast and comment below and tell me if you’ve taken your kids to Lowes Build and Grow.
Cafe Zupas just opened their 2nd location in Las Vegas. I had the pleasure of attending their VIP event and fell in love with the restaurant.
When I dine out, I love casual dining restaurants, friendly places can take my kids, good fast food, and great service. Cafe Zupas met all of that.
Cafe Zupas specializes in House-Made soups, salads and sandwiches using fresh and exotic ingredients in a fast-casual setting. Opening its doors in 2004, there are now restaurants in Utah, Nevada, & Arizona with other states to follow soon. Café Zupas has won 18 Best-of-State awards over seven consecutive years.
Their menu offers ten house-made soups, twelve exotic salads, six panini’s, and seven gourmet sandwiches. In addition, the Cafe Zupas Drink Bar offers sixteen different types of fountain drinks with Free Italian Soda flavorings. Add to that the soup mix-ins and hot sauces, the 58 ingredients for the “Create Your Own Salad” and the weekly specials, and the options become practically limitless. We finish every meal with our signature Belgian chocolate-dipped strawberry. Additionally, there is a fabulous dessert menu featuring Créme Brûleés, Dessert Bars, Cakes, and seasonal specialties.
With all those items to choose from, I was in the mood for Asian inspired food, so I selected the Asian BBQ Pork Sandwich along with the Thai Mango Chicken Salad.
My youngest son ate off of the kids menu and got chicken strips and a fruit cup.
and for dessert we chose the Rocky Road Brownie. See my at home Rocky Road Brownie version.
along with their signature chocolate cover strawberries.
Everything was scrumptious!
The menu was very reasonable for $7.99 you can order from their try 2 menu.
Another thing I really love about Cafe Zupas is the store has Wifi and a recharging station. It’s a great place to have your next meeting at, especially if you need Wifi.
So the next time you are looking for a place to eat out in Las Vegas. Be sure to consider Cafe Zupas!
