Toy Review: Lakeshore Learning Royal Kingdom Adventure Castle & Precious Ponies Playset

The kids and I are excited to review a pair of playsets compliments of Lakeshore Learning’s at-home educational line for language-boosting pretend play. These sets are part of the brand’s newly launched Gifts for Growing Minds Collection for the 2018 holiday season!

In this post, we’ll be reviewing the Royal Kingdom Adventure Castle and the Precious Ponies Playset.  Designed for at-home educational play, we’ve found these sets to be sturdy and thoughtfully accessorized, all with the quality we’ve come to expect from this brand favorite.

And, as you know, we like to be out of the house. So when we’re stuck inside, it’s toys like this that make the day more fun.

Kid-Friendly Wine Country: Playing at Jack Creek Farms in Templeton

Open year-round, Jack Creek is working farm. Run by the Barlogio family, these sweet folks have put decades of work into their land. Where else can you find a family-owned establishment where the fam treks out to the fields to handpick the best three tomatoes for an elderly neighbor who just called in a pickup? Adorable! Jack Creek Farms features true, homegrown service.

Family-Friendly Winetasting in Templeton California

You’re visiting the picturesque wine country on California’s Central Coast. Let me set the scene for you:

Clear blue skies give a stunning backdrop to rolling hills dotted with twisty oaks and row after row of vineyard grapes. 

You have your sunhat on and your fall outfit is on point. It’s a good day. You can’t wait to clink to the future with the hubby and do some much-needed wine tasting. 

But …

You have your kids with you. Who get bored.  Easily.

What do you do?

Enter the magic of the kid-friendly winery.

Fall marks the time of year when I start planning Clara and Wyatt’s dual December birthday party. Yep, totally combining it ’till they won’t let me anymore. #noshame.

In December, they will be 3 and 5. So I researched aaall the kids party places.

And as bonus of my annual crazy-mama birthday party scouting, I’ve decided to make my venue list public. And styled. With links. And prices! You’re welcome.
