We enrolled our son in this program for his first swimming lessons. The teacher seemed very nice, and he was put into a group of 4 kids. Unfortunately, the teacher didnt seem to have a lot of experience with teaching swimming or working with kids. Severa times, I had to inform her of my son doing things he wasnt supposed to be doing, which involved him going underwater and swimming around when he couldnt even swim. There just wasnt enough attention, and for all the money we paid for the 6 weeks, he learned nothing.
This store isnt one I usually buy things from, but I like to browse this store often with my kids. They carry alot of Thomas the Train items, and usually are showing these movies on a screen for the kids to watch. I dont think their prices are very competetive, but they do offer some neat toys to stimulate kids imaginations.
This store is a great place to take your kids to get them something they will love, and will teach them something at the same time. They have a terrific assortment of books, organized by theme, and have aisles of toys that stimulate kids imaginations. There are also sections designed just for teachers or for parents who home school their kids.
This is a very off the wall shoe store. It has a great location, right in the middle of the Irvine Spectrum, and it gets a lot of traffic. I have shopped here with my sister, and never found anything I could actually be seen wearing in public. The shoes are very trendy, but in very loud fashion. The prices are really high, and most shoes I looked at were around the 100.00 price.
This is a nice Ralphs. They stock it well in the early morning, and its usually clean with clear aisles. I have never had a problem getting sale items that they have advertised, and they are good about giving you rainchecks when you ask. This store is very crowded though, and if its peak shopping time, I find myself going to Vons instead.
Im not really a fan of Stater Brothers, and this one isnt any better than any of them. Its an older store, and doesnt look as modern as my other local grocery stores. The prices at Stater Brothers are decent, though they dont double coupons, which is important to me on a budget. The lines can get crazy here, and last time I was there for just one thing, and I was stuck in a 15 minute line. I finally just put back my item and left.
This card shop is your typical little store with cards and giftwrap. Its a pretty small strore, so if they have a handful of people shopping, it can feel crowded! They always carry a small selection of holiday items for each season, and have the typical knick knacks you normally see at these types of stores.
This store is different every week!! They get items from various stores at the best prices. I found really nice crystal vases here that were 75% off. I ended up using these for my wedding centerpieces, and people couldnt believe my bargain. This store has a little bit of everything including: gift bags, baby items, houseware, books, designer home accents, and glassware. They close down for a few weeks a year to restock their items.
This little florist is not in a good location. They are sandwiched in between restuarants with insufficient parking. If you can find parking, the selection of flowers is good, and they have beautiful baskets to choose from.
This is a neat store. I dont go here with a purpose, because you never know what you will find! They emphasize gardening, with plants, flowers, and a really nice selection of pots. The prices on these items are very reasonable, and coupons are often found in your local paper. They sell other odds and ends as well, with Christmas time being the best time of the year to find all the things you didnt know you need, but bought anyway!
