It’s raining today, but for when it clears up … here’s an easy outing for those of you looking to get out of the house: adventure walks! That’s where we go on a walk and take a basket to collect treasures we find on the ground. Sometimes I like to get in the car and find another neighborhood to walk in besides our own, because our neighborhood route gets old. One walk that we particularly like is the sidewalk along Rolling Hills Road.
Is it just me, or does anyone else have this weird obsession with researching kids’ recreation classes? Mine aren’t in school yet, so you’ll often find me scrolling through the Paso Robles Activity Guide to see what cool family-friendly thing we want to try next. Not that I have tons of patience for kids’ classes. They’re fine when you have one child. But when you have two, there’s not much you can register them for together.
But the age range for the City of Paso Robles’ Kindermusik “Wiggle and Grow” series is newborn to four. Boom. Disaster averted.
I’m excited to announce that Two In Tow & On The Go is now featured monthly in PASO Magazine as a column!! You can now look for reviews on kid classes, parks and other adventures from us in the magazine’s print and online editions.
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.
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.
A few weeks ago, on a rainy day, the kids and I decided to check out the Come Play indoor playground…
