Review: Kid’s Birthday Party at Central Coast Aquarium, Avila Beach

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.

And this is one venue that your guests will LOVE.

Adventure Walk: Rolling Hills Road, Paso Robles

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!

But the age range for the City of Paso Robles’ Kindermusik “Wiggle and Grow” series is newborn to four. Boom. Disaster averted.
