Central Coast Aquarium is a small aquarium

Posted by SanLuisObispoMom.com on Monday, January 28, 2019,
In Avila Beach, by the kid's playground is a really small aquarium called Central Coast Aquarium. Since it was right by the playground and we were already there, we decided to pay a visit. Usual cost is $8 per adult, $6 for military with ID, $5 for seniors and kids 2 and under are free. You can literally go through the aquarium in 15 minutes! It may not be worth it if you are on a tight budget but our little boys still enjoyed it. Here are the pictures we took from our visit.

Arroyo Grande Library

Posted by SanLuisObispoMom.com on Thursday, January 24, 2019, In : For Kids 
Our first library adventure in SLO took place at Arroyo Grande Library in Arroyo Grande, CA. They have a children's area with LEGOs, computers for kids, puzzles and a little private area in the back. Here are the photos that we took from our library visit below.

The kids really enjoy the LEGOs, although it seemed too close to the main area where everyone could hear them building. The loud plastic clangs that came naturally from the shuffles of the LEGOs can sound disturbing a bit to maybe som...
