    Berkeley Art Museum & Pacific Film ArchiveSubmitted by Madeline Backman

    This weekend we took a trip the the Berkeley Art Museum & Pacific Film Archive*.  I have such delightful memories of this place when it was in its old location and I was in my blissfully easy pre kid days.  I wasn’t sure what to expect but was blown away with how kid friendly BAMPFA is now. 

    In addition to the current Masako Miki exhibit, which is a giant felted wonderland, there is a children’s art area in which kids can use a ton of supplies to make whatever they can dream up. There is also a sweet reading and building area, and really great interactive seating area where kiddos can move large soft benches to make forts and climbing structures.  They also show films and have tons of special events.  Even though we went on a Sunday it was not overly crowded and most visitors were families with kids.  We spent about 2 hours at the museum with only one meltdown (over leaving the gift shop without getting to buy anything) so I’d call that a success.  

    Since it’s across the street from the UC Berkeley campus there are so many reasonable, casual and kid friendly eating places within a block or two of the museum.  We ate at Comal Next Door, the causal Mexican food sister restaurant to one of our favorite (pre kid) places.  Other great options include Cancun, Saturn Cafe & Sliver Pizzeria.  

    We also walked around the UC Berkeley campus for an hour or so, rounding out a really nice day in the East Bay. 

    The best part was that since we just joined the Petaluma Museum we get into most Bay Area museums for free.  It’s an awesome perk and makes supporting our local museum even more rewarding.

    IMPORTANT - Register @ petalumamothersclub.org

    HERE'S YOUR CHANCE TO SAMPLE THE "LIL KICKERS" and "LIL SLUGGERS" programs at Sports City. The sample class is only offered at the SANTA ROSA FACILITY (so for those who have done this in year's past - make sure you don't go to the Cotati Facility for this Field Trip since they are not open during the day).  

    WHEN: Monday Jan 21, 2019 @ 9:30a.m. Please arrive between 9-9:15 for registration and paperwork. I am working on getting the paperwork ahead of time so you can fill it out early if you like.

    WHERE: SPORTS CITY EPICENTER (Santa Rosa), 3215 Coffey Lane

    WHO: Ages 18months-7years (baseball starts at 2 years, but soccer starts at 18mos)

    COST: $0 - PMC will supply snacks

    WHAT: When you RSVP, you will be able to choose between Soccer or Baseball. Each child can only do one class so they will have to pick between one or the other.

    MORE/ABOUT: The Winter Classes start the next day on January 22! So if you choose to register for classes after you take the sample class, you can check out the online schedules under Lil' Athletes (http://playsportscity.com/lil-athletes/). The Cotati Facility offers both the Soccer and Baseball classes for winter which is why we are sampling both - should you choose to sign your child up, you will be able to sign up for Cotati classes while at the Santa Rosa facility!

    Together We Rise Campaign

    PMC is partnering up with Together We Rise to fundraise Sweet Cases for children in Foster Care. Each sponsored case is $25 and is filled with essentials like a teddy bear, blanket, hygiene kit, etc. Once our fundraiser is complete, PMC members will get together to decorate and pack the cases before they go to a local agency; this can be anything from CPS offices to police who show up on scene. 

    Here is the link to our campaign


    Feel free to share with friends and family as every dollar counts. Thanks for your support!!
