Review: Del Mar Park, Morro Bay

Two In Tow & On The Go Review_Del Mar Park Morro Bay 1

Who’s been to Del Mar Park in Morro Bay?  We went for the first time in April and now we’re basically in love. This park is known for its 28-foot climbing structure 😱, complete with crazy tall lookout points and a GIANT tube slide that dips down from the top lookout. It also has lots of grass,  a beautiful creek and bridge that’s perfect for littles, and nice restrooms.

Centennial Trail, Paso Robles

Centennial Trail is a roughly 1 mile stretch of flat, paved pathway from Lana Street to Mohawk Court on the city’s east side. The trail is stroller-friendly and completely off-road. The trail also features a seasonal creek, a canopy of beautiful twisty oaks and spots to see deer. The trail is popular with joggers and dog walkers, but we like to buddy up when venturing anywhere off-road or out of view of others.

The Silver Post Review_By Two In Tow & On The Go

Review: Our Text-to-Postcard Experience with The Silver Post

Twenty-eight year old Carolyn McRae was inspired by her time as a volunteer with the elderly to bring joy into other people’s lives.  And she knows that nothing makes family more happy than little ones.

“I’ve volunteered with senior citizens since I was 14, and have seen first-hand how happy grandparents are when they can hold a photo of their grandkids,” McRae said. “It always warmed by heart and I wanted to create more of these moments.”

But … she also knows that sometimes (ok, so maybe all the time), it’s hard for millennials to print out a picture or send a physical card through, (gasp!), snail mail.

That’s why in February 2017, she founded the Boston-based tech company The Silver Post to bridge the tech gap between grandparents and their grandchildren. The company operates off the concept of “you text us your pics and Grandma gets them in the mail!” by translating those texts into a physical postcard.

The Morro Bay Embarcadero with Kids

Exploring the Morro Bay Embarcadero with kids is one of our hands-down favorite adventures. So much so, I can’t believe it’s taken me this long to write about it. This day includes rides, treats, pretty views, TAFFY and a chance to feed some awesome seals.

This adventure takes you to the lovely sea fishing town of Morro Bay, California. It’s famous for the iconic Morro Rock, one of SLO County’s “Nine Sisters” of volcanic peaks stretching along Highway 1. Morro Rock is the only one of the peaks sitting in the water. Elsewhere, the city is made up of a small but vibrant downtown, homes, beach life and a bustling harbor. Along that harbor, you’ll find The Embarcadero.

Review: The newly renovated Barney Schwartz Park – As Seen in PASO Magazine

The new play equipment is bright, fun and offers a fairly diverse set of play structures. Among them are some really great nature-inspired tree stump steps, large boulders connecting the climbing decks and a fun ring twister to stand on and spin. The kids were also excited to try out the cascade climber, which features foothold cutouts on a series of panels to encourage kids to climb up, down and sideways.

Toy Review: Checkered Fun Construction Vehicle Set

You guys, let me tell you how fun this Construction Vehicle Set is that we were gifted from toy company, Checkered Fun! The kids have been playing with this set for a few days now. The idea behind the six-piece set is there’s one truck base with a handful of different attachments kids can build.
