That’s a wrap on February We advocated for school safety under a double rainbow at City Hall We finally celebrated the boys birthday with an ancient Egyptian theme We road tripped to Souther California and discovered a lovely winery on the way We did Disney for the first time!! We hiked in the jungle in Panama And even snuck in a 90s Prom date night Not pictured - my daughter performed at her school and it was delightful. We dealt with more than one family emergency. I survived the worst stomach bug I can remember. We picked a lot in these brief 29 days! Happy Leap Day!
This calendar year has been just full of changes and travel and illness and all the things that throw off a Family routine! So am asking @joinyohana to support with weekly tasks to help us simplify our routines and refocus as we move through what is proving to be a chaotic year! Yohana can help with everything from researching family travel to building a weekly grocery list. You can use my link in bio to join! #yohanaambassador @joinyohana
🌁Living in San Francisco can be overwhelming AND I can help you have an amazing time! Here are five ways to have a great day in SF for FREE! Save and share! ❤️ IDEAS❤️ 1️⃣ Ride the cable car! Yes, it’s a tourist activity but that’s because it’s FUN! Also, never wait at the main stops - the line is too long walk a few blocks up and find a corner stop and hop in when it’s your turn! Not free but reasonably priced (sorry the rest are actually Free, I promise) - the Cable Car Museum is FREE @sfmta_muni 2️⃣ Go on an Urban Hike you can roam the city or check out one of the many urban parks (I have a reel with 11 urban hikes that will get you into nature) - the library has a hand full of walking guides of the city, you can usually find a few free guided walks on @funcheap. My family bought a city walking guide. It’s such a fun way to spend a day! 3️⃣ Head over to the @sfpubliclibrary online and check out what’s available for through the Discover and Go program! You can check out family tickets to all sorts of fun spots in the city including the @exploratorium 4️⃣ Visit all the different neighborhood street festivals - Chinatown hosts some really spectacular events, but you’ll also find parades in North Beach, the @sunsetmercantile is always fun, Clement Street does the Holidays up really well each year, the Haight and Castro have art walks each month. Check out a new neighborhood and immerse yourself in the liveliness of the city! 5️⃣ Take advantage of FREE Museum Days - residents are free at the De Young and Legion of Honor each Saturday, residents are always free at the Botanical Gardens, Japanese Tea Garden, and Comservatory of Flowers, @sfmoma hosts Free Family Days the second Sunday of the month and Free residents days on the first Thursday of the month, Asian Art Museum is free the Sunday of the month, the Contemporary Jewish Museum is Free the first Friday, MoAD is free the second Saturday, the Museum of Craft and Design is pay what you can on Wednesdays, GLBT Historical Society is free the first Wednesday of the month! Don’t worry if that’s a lot to keep up with I’ll post a reel with all the dates! Follow @sarahromontoya for more SF family fun!
COMMENT: how do you plan your family travel? Kid focused or adult focused or a mix of both? We didn’t do a single kid activity in Panama everything we did did was some thing that any adult would love to do but my kids also loved it. Family friendly travel doesn’t have to be kid centric to be meaningful and fun. Save and share this post with your travel loving friends This visit to the fishmarket was definitely something for the grown-ups, but the kids found it interesting and we got to walk around together and experience the taste, smells, and the sounds of the market in the morning followed by delicious ceviche. I love doing things just for my kids. I also think it’s important for them to learn the joy of participating in an event or activity because it’s meaningful and important to other members of the family. If your ever in Panama- which I HIGHLY RECOMMEND you go someday - be sure to head to the Mercado De Marisco Cinta Costera. We went in the morning when things are getting set up and it was delightful and fun, but looking around I can see that the space would be fantastic at night!

COMMENT: with your questions about traveling to Panama with kids! And swipe for MONKEYS 🐒 Fantastic humans: we just had the most AMAZING EXPERIENCE IN PANAMA 🇵🇦 We got cheap flight through Scott’s Cheap Flights and flew @avianca - it’s a great budget no frills airline. Panama was never on my travel bucket list but you should add it to yours! It’s a lovely mix of urban and jungle. The food was delicious and the people were so welcoming. The country has such a rich and diverse history- it’s fabulous! 1. Our first night out at a rooftop bar in Panama City @tantalohotel 2. We did a nature hike and boat ride with @yalatourspanama the guide helped us find sloths, anteaters, monkeys, and so many gorgeous birds 3. Monkey we saw from the boat on our tour 4. On our tour we were able to visit a local village where the Emberá people live today 5. @trevormcneilsf did an amazing job using The Lonely Planet and @nytimestravel to find us fantastic food 6. We saw an iguana at the @smithsonianpanama - I highly recommend a visit! 7. So many cuddles - and isn’t that what family travel is about? All the beautiful connections 8. We went to the Tabago island and the kids found a coconut to play ball with - fun fact this island was once “uninhabited Panama” and housed over a thousand pirates - it’s sometimes referred to as pirate island 9. More cuddles on the boat ride back from the island 10. We stayed in Casco Viejo - also known as San Felipe is the old city’s heart and it’s STUNNING! Ask me anything! I’m hoping to get a blog together to guide you on your next trip!

🍭Last week we had the joy of checking out the new LollyLand Pop-up - hosted in the Palace of Fine Arts by @palaceescape 🍬We had a GREAT TIME: it’s colorful, interactive, creative, and engaging. The staff is so welcoming and super helpful! It’s a one of a kind experience and I’m so glad we went. 🍫And you should know: it is designed for adults while being kid accessible, meaning it’s a problem solving game that requires paying attention and following directions. 🍩Notes for families: ⭐️The Minigolf is set up as a series of challenges with scoring in a screen for each game - there’s no editing the score card or giving redos - this can be a big challenge for a lot of kids. The staff is amazing and can help make the set up less competitive but it’s impossible to get away from the screens and scores ⭐️it’s better with an even number - 2 of the holes are set up as teams so it’s weird if you have an odd numbers and for kids who focus on even numbers of turns the odd number of people makes you have unequal number of turns per person on the team with 2 people ⭐️some of the challenges are legitimately confusing (think brain teasers) so you need an engaged adult to figure it out ⭐️the last part of the game is in a dark room that could scare little kids (you can see it in the reel- it’s not meant to be scary but if you bring little kids it might be) 🍥Overall, it is super fun! I’m hoping to go back but I’ll probably make it a Moms night out. My kids LOVE Minigolf and they enjoyed this but I wish I had realized how structured it is with the challenges before we went so I could have prepared them. 🍭Cost: $30 per person 🍬Open Thursday-Sunday through March 🍫Location: @palaceoffinearts ❤️Follow @sarahromontoya for more honest reviews of what’s happening in San Francisco
✨Luckiest mom ever✨ This was the only posed photo I absolutely had to have and I’m so glad I got it ✨ Btw: now that I’ve been to Disneyland for the first time I absolutely understand how #DisneyAdults are made I’m already thinking about our next trip - probably not until these kids are teens but still so excited to make more memories here ❤️ Also - you should go back a few posts for all the family selfies - they make my heart happy
