    http://www.TheCarmelValleyLife.com On May 4th the Ashley Falls Elementary School PTA organized their Spring Carnival, this annual event is a fundraiser for the school. The atmosphere was alive with a carnival feel to it, there were game booths, jump castles, a silent auction, an obstacle course, a rock climbing wall, a game truck, photo booth, rc trucks, laser tag, etc. The food was great and there was also a raffle giving away two iPad minis. The silent auction provided a ton of great opportunities and deals, and every year there are more and more. This event had many sponsors, which were all local businesses that care about the education and future of the kids of Carmel Valley. This school is part of the Del Mar Union School District, which is comprised of a great staff that only has the needs of Carmel Valley’s kids in mind, and it shows at our schools. The carnival was located in the schools main recess area, which was the perfect location, and it was a very safe environment where parents could feel at ease letting their kids enjoy all the activities. The Ashley Falls neighborhood is a very peaceful and quality neighborhood with a wonderful school. Our Carmel Valley community is great at coming together and creating fun, family oriented events and this carnival is a prime example of that community spirit. Even if your kids don’t attend the school you should still come to the carnival as a visitor to have an opportunity to meet other parents of the community and any kid would have a blast at this event. The Ashley Falls PTA is a great group of parents that went to great lengths to make this carnival the best and most exciting carnival it could be, and every year it gets better.

                      http://www.TheCarmelValleyLife.com Del Mar Mesa is a San Diego community born out of Carmel Valleys agricultural and equestrian roots. Long before the new home builders like Pardee Homes began creating new communities in Carmel Valley, Del Mar Mesa was the heart and soul of the area. Still today, this neighborhood is 1 of the most sought after in Carmel Valley because of its panoramic views of Black Mountain to the East and oceans views to the West. Homes in Del Mar Mesa are situated on large open lots with the feeling of privacy in space not found anywhere else in Carmel Valley. Walking trails and horse riding trails meander throughout the community providing a unique country feel - even though Del Mar Mesa is just minutes from excellent shopping, freeways, beaches and golf courses. Del Mar Mesa also offers great access to one of Carmel Valley's best hiking trails via Los Penasquitos Canyon. One of San Diego's favorite hikes among its residents is the waterfall hike, which starts at the trail-head near Duck Pond Ranch. Another key feature about the community is the fact that several of the lots for the homes in the community overlook the grand Del Mar - which is Carmel Valley's 5 star hotel and resort. Not only does The Grand Del Mar offer some of San Diego's finest accommodations, world class golf and dining, but it is also home to many charity events and community events - such as the annual summer concert series.
