Recently we visited Santa Rosa, the Sonoma Valley city that was once home to Charles M. Schulz, creator of the beloved Peanuts comics.
In honor of Santa Rosa's most famous resident sculptures of Peanuts characters have been erected around town. There are two permanent bronze sculptures while the rest are movable and can be found dotted around the city.
Ava and Lola are quite fond of Charlie Brown, Snoopy and their pals so we set out to find as many of the sculptures as possible. We were there quite late in the day (after our visit to Petaluma Pumpkin Patch) and the sun was starting to set so we didn't manage to find all of the sculptures but we did find quite a few.
The movable sculptures remind me a little of the heart sculptures dotted around San Francisco. If you've been reading Little Hiccups for a while you'll know that Ava and Lola love tracking down the heart sculptures in San Francisco. You can see some of them here and here. You'll also know that I've been promising to share more of the hearts with you for such a long time. I'll get to it, I promise!
Santa Rosa is also home to the Charles M. Schulz Museum and Snoopy's Home Ice skating rink. We've been planning on visiting both but haven't made it there yet. We hope to take the girls very soon. We'll make sure to track down more of the Peanuts sculptures on our next visit too. It appears there are lots more of them. Check out this Pinterest page I found! So many
