I actually try to get us out of the house nearly every day. Sometimes this may just be a trip to Staters, other times it can be a trip to the park, a play date, or an errand. The important part is getting the kids out of the house for a little while.
Let me share some recent excursions and blurry, low quality pictures with you...
Costco is always a fun outing.
It includes churros (my bribe to get us through the store)...
We do this at Target too.
Not only is it fun for them to explore and look at the toys,
but I think it's a good lesson for them...
to go to stores, see fun things, and then not buy any of them.
This activity is one of our favorites on rainy days when we're dying to get out of the house :)
|One of our park trips. Now that Alayna can run around, she has a blast at the park with her brother. Of course she tries to do way more than she is able to manage, and I have to stay by her side at all times, but she loves every minute.|
|They always love the swings|
Two recent sunsets in Yucaipa.
I love sunsets.
The other week my mother in law was super sweet and took Alayna for the good part of a day so that I could take Ethan to Disneyland before our passes expired. It was fun to take just him. We did whatever he wanted, which did not include many rides. His favorite part is always meeting the characters. He is just tickled when he gets to meet them, I love it.
|This huge sucker was the treat he picked out and lasted him a good two hours. It was awesome.|
|All tuckered out on the drive home.|
