In Spring 2018, we wrote about the Paso Robles Inn as part of the nationally distributed article “Spring Screening: Unplug from Tech and Get the Family into Nature” by Trivago Magazine.
This workshop is intended for kiddos from birth to 5 years old. With the purchase of one adult ticket, all your cubs are free to join with you! Cost of adult ticket covers cost of supplies for the munchkins to craft away and have a little snack.
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.
We’re #SoSLOCAL because we’re a versatile, adventure loving family who knows SLO County by heart. We’re excited to share the area’s beauty, its FUN and all its awesome getaways. Here’s a look at some of our fave SLO County kid-ventures.
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.
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.
I have next to no real experience with pet death. All the passings of my childhood pets were shielded from me in one way or another. Cats got lost and never came home. Maybe they lived happily chasing mice on a ranch somewhere (hopeful kid thoughts). Or my parents did the finding and the burying.
But with this death, it was right in front of my face.
#Momtruth: I was a worried these PicassoTiles toys designed for society’s littlest engineers might be too advanced for our 2 and 4 year old builders.
But, as it turns out, I was wrong — and in this case, that’s ok :).
Here’s the abridged version of our review of Come Play, as published in the February 2018 edition of PASO Magazine in print and online. Come Play has four dedicated indoor play spaces for bounce houses, basketball, toys and a giant play structure. It’s designed to entertain babies to middle schoolers.
For more than a year, I’ve been trying to wrangle fitness back into my life. To, you know, stay sane. And, to shed some of this craziness that two babies in four years has done to my body. What I’m talking about is consistently getting in a real workout two to three times a week. The kind of exercise that gets my heart rate up, makes some of that endorphin magic happen and unplugs me from the daily mom scene for at least 30 minutes.
