Los Angeles MOMS… Get paid to sample an excellent New Dishwashing Machine Detergent

I have another AWESOME opportunity for any LA moms out there. I worked with this group on their last focus group and it was a blast! Plus the extra cash didn’t hurt any either. ;)

Here’s the thing, I want to be up front that I am being compensated for each candidate I send to Nancy for this group. She has asked that I tell you all that you need to put my name (KATE) in the subject line when emailing. Submit yourself quickly as they do fill those spots quickly. [Continue reading...]

Knott’s Berry Farm celebrates Camp Snoopy turning 30 with three new rides!

Camp Snoopy 30th Anniversary LogoI recall taking Little Man to Knott’s Berry Farm when he turned two and it was such fun. His favorite part by far was Camp Snoopy since it was made just for someone his size. It’s hard to believe that Camp Snoopy is celebrating 30 years since the place still looks so well run and clean!

Dedicated to reinvesting in their most beloved children’s area Knott’s in marking this 30 year mark with a complete restoration and THREE new rides!

  • Charlie Brown’s Kite Flyer with Charlie Brown and soar into the sky, but watch out for the kite-eating tree! This 32-passenger adventure allows guests to sit side-by-side on 16 swings for a spin that whisks riders up to 18 feet above the ground. As the tree rises,Charlie Brown is revealed upside down and all tied up in kite string! Charlie Browns Kite Flyer will replace Snoopy Bounce.
  • Pig Pen’s Mud Buggies lets tykes climb aboard their very own all-terrain vehicle for an adventurous ride around the High Sierras. Six four-seater ATVs will spin, bounce, and bump up to 24 guests at a time, while Pig Pen looks on froms Mud Buggies will replace Log Peeler.
  • Linus Launcher recreates that classic Peanut’s moment when Snoopy grabs Linus’ blanket and launches him on a wild ride. On Linus Launcher, guests lay on one of twelve “blankets” as they fly round and round. Up to 24 guests lay side-by-side while Snoopy launches them up almost 10 feet in the air. Guests will enjoy a Woodstock’s-eye view of Huff ‘n Puff, The Grizzly Creek Lodge, and all of Camp Snoopy below! Linus Launcher will replace Charlie Brown’s Speedway.

Our family will get to experience the revamped Camp Snoopy on June 28th so be sure to follow my Instagram and Twitter account for the latest pics and updates on all the fun Knott’s has to offer this summer. You can also learn more about the new Camp Snoopy at Knotts.com
