Trip to Los Angeles from SLO

Posted by SanLuisObispoMom.com on Saturday, March 23, 2019,
Lucky for San Luis Obispo residents, Los Angeles is only a 3 hour drive from here! With Hollywood, many theme parks and things to do for the kids, Los Angeles is a huge tourist spot. Here are some attraction deals you can find from an authorized online seller. These online prices are usually cheaper than the gate price and on occasion, cheaper than the actual attractions' websites themselves.

No more milk before bedtime for my 5 year old

Posted by SanLuisObispoMom.com on Wednesday, March 20, 2019,
We had a somewhat satisfactory dentist appointment earlier today for my 5 year old. He is starting kindergarten this fall and we needed to get his oral check up and oral health assessment form completed by a dentist by May 31st to enroll him into school!

Like his previous visits, we had a hard time getting x-rays of his molars done. He would gag when they would place a film that far into his mouth. 

Since his previous dental visit was good 8 months ago, I didn't have any concerns about how he h...

Dinosaur Caves Park Cliff Views

Posted by SanLuisObispoMom.com on Friday, March 15, 2019,
Located in Pismo Beach and Shell Beach is a beautiful public park called Dinosaur Caves Park. It has a large playground for the kids and amazing cliff views. There are multiple viewing points with benches and it's so easy to take beautiful pictures. I call this place heaven on earth. The kids love the playground here and I'm hesitant to let them go near the cliff so I will only walk over there with them if they are strapped into their stroller. Here are the pictures I took of Dinosaur Caves P...

Posted by SanLuisObispoMom.com on Monday, March 11, 2019,
Over the weekend, we had special visitors and decided to take them to the kid-friendly Kelsey See Canyon Vineyards in San Luis Obispo. The most extraordinary part about this vineyard is that they have beautiful peacocks roaming around. Enjoying a taster in their large outdoor patio while listening to the peacocks was a very interesting experience! Address of Kelsey See Canyon Vineyards: 1947 See Canyon Rd, San Luis Obispo, CA 93405.

Today is Ash Wednesday and I am Episcopalian

Posted by SanLuisObispoMom.com on Thursday, March 7, 2019,
Every year, I take Lent more seriously because usually this is the time when I'd grow spiritually and mentally prepare for Easter. Today is Ash Wednesday which marks the beginning of Lent, some 40+ days between now until Easter comes. I abstain from meat every Friday starting now until Easter. 

My kids are too little to start fasting and abstaining but to tell you the truth, the abstaining from meat part comes easy to them because they don't like to eat meat anyway! We're Episcopalian and Lent...
