Did you know that San Diego has a Soccer Team? We Do! The Sockers are our MASL Team! They’ve been here since 2009.
The Big Kid and I got to experience our first Socker’s game yesterday!
Before the game, we got a chance the run around the field and kick the ball. After 20 minutes, the big kid was panting and ready for a water break.
Sockers tickets start at $15, the club pays for parking! They have special rates for groups and a special military discount!
The Sockers pride themselves on being the family-friendly affordable winter sport in San Diego. Fans are welcome on the field after the game to meet the team, get autographs or a high five. The big kid and I had a great time! Soccer is a very fast-moving game, and there are lots of opportunities for audience participation, which he LOVED!!
If you were wondering about the noise level? Not too loud, and just in case, I had his noise-blocking earphones in the car.
I would recommend a Sockers game for any family, especially those with kids on the spectrum. It’s a chance to enjoy time together, make noise, and watch a fun game.
And Pechanga Arena has a great variety of food and snacks. We had caramel apples, and frozen chocolate-dipped cheesecake on a stick.
**The Sockers provided free tickets to the game- However, we were not obligated to blog or post on Social media about the event. We had such an amazing time that I had to share with y’all.
It’s Black Friday and I’m sure y’all are up to your eyeballs in Black Friday Deals and bargains, so I’m bringing you all kinds of fun free stuff this morning!
It’s Friday, and holy moly, do I have a busy weekend coming up! The Skyline Swap tomorrow morning, then I am off to a blogger mini-conference to meet with some new brands and bloggers.
But first, let’s dive into some freebies!
Halloween is just TWO WEEKS AWAY!! Are you ready? Thankfully I only have a few last-minute tweaks to make to the big kids’ Knight Costume, and Little Miss’s Elsa dress is store-bought (much to my chagrin).
Trick or treating door to door isn’t really popular in our area, but a lot of churches and civic groups host carnivals or events either on Halloween or on the weekends leading up to it, so there is no shortage of fun for the kids. If you are in San Diego County, here are just a few fun events that we’ve enjoyed in the past:
Don’t Forget HalGLOween at the San Diego Zoo! And most YMCA locations host a Halloween event that has a small fee, but has lots of fun games, crafts, and candy.
And if you are looking for tons of fun, don’t forget that Brick or Treat is still going on at Legoland California, tickets are on sale here.
