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.

Both of our kids have December birthdays, three days apart, less than two weeks from Christmas. Needless to say, our holiday season is a liiittle much.

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.
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.

We received an iMonster Snack Keeper compliments of Nuby in exchange for our honest review. Overall, it’s a super cute addition to our snack game that looks more like a toy than a container. But, unfortunately, I tend not to use it because it’s fairly difficult to open without spills its contents all over the floor.
