For that age group a great getaway with the toad is Legoland california. Great park and will take you about 1 hour to get there. It's an all day event but my kids love it. Official LEGOLAND California Site
If your kids like parks like Disney, this one is pretty nice to do.
Second, a real treat is the Discovery Museum. Discovery Science Center in California - Orange County's Family Fun Science Center
Very close to you. About 15 - 20 min drive. This is something the family can do while you are in the conference. My kids love coming back to this place all year long. Very educational something for everyone to do.
I also suggest heading down to the Beach. The closest one to you that is nice is Huntington Beach although I really like Dana Point Harbor. In Huntington Beach there are lots of shops... great walking and lot of fun. In Dana Point there are cruises to Catalina Island and Whale watching tours that are a lot of fun. If that sounds great, let me know... and I'll get you the details. That is a great thing to do in California.
Loads to do out here.
