We were the featured guest blogger over on Say-N-Play Columbus, an awesome family blog based in Columbus, Ohio. The blog features activities that encourage language development through play, guides for exploring Ohio and tips on traveling with kids. I wrote about our experience in baking together, for Say-N-Play’s weekly “Take a Taste Tuesday” feature.
Here’s our final pumpkin patch in our series of pumpkin patches we visited this fall! River K is a very rural pumpkin patch where you can pick pumpkins right off the vine. Or, pick some up around the cute little pumpkin stand up front. The business has been family owned and operated for decades by the Knuze family on River Road. (Get it? River K).
Next up in our series of pumpkin patches is the truly wonderful Jack Creek Farms in Templeton, California. It’s open year-round and they’ve put a lot of time and effort into making their farm kid-friendly, including fenced-in play areas and a thoughtful layout that includes a large picnic table spot.
I feel like Avila Valley Barn is the go-to staple for pumpkin patchin’ it in SLO County. It also has one heck of a pie stand. Overall, it has hay rides, farm animals to feed, two mazes, roasted corn, photo ops and ice cream all on a family-friendly farm.
Last weekend Jurassic Quest came to our city, filling the Paso Robles Events Center with all the family-friendly dinosaur goodness of life-like animatronic dinosaurs, crafts and play. Think day at the natural history museum, but you get to ride the dinos.
This CaliKids Fitness class included circle time, warm-ups, running relays, tumbling, games, singing and dancing – all to upbeat music.
When San Luis Obispo resident and Beautycounter rep Lindsey Eckersley reached out to me with a collaboration opportunity to try the Super-Duper…
My children were 1 and 3 when we received the Imaginext Giant Yeti – and it was their first bonafide action toy in a playroom full of blocks, stuffed animals and puzzles. As such, we really got into the whole pretend play aspect of having a new big plastic monster in the house.
Barney Schwartz Park in Paso Robles is getting an all new playground soon. While we’re happy about the fresh play equipment, I feel like we should give some throwback love to the old playground before its purple plastic and log cabin vibe is gone for good.
Who else is excited about checking out some new kids classes this fall? Every time a new season sneaks up…
