I’m looking for some things to do with the kids while Chris is at his meetings during the day.

The nearest mall appears to be: Carmel Mountain Mall .  I was looking through the store directory and came across a fitness studio called  The Bar Method.  I have never heard of it before but looks like I may be willing to give it a try!

Other neat places to check out for mom: Drybar – neat concept! looks like a fun way to treat yourself!

Carmel Mountain Ranch is within the well know Poway School District.  I may want to drive around and look at a couple of neighborhoods.   Looks quite pricy thought. $500K for less than 2000 sq feet?  Not sure if there is anything more reasonable or not.
