- Fuel up. Having kids makes you realize how important it is to have proper nutrition. I make sure the kids have a good breakfast before heading out and I bring plenty of snacks for them. I usually pack bananas, raisins, apples, fruit pouches and lots of water! I also pack snacks for myself like protein bars and coconut water. Having the right snacks and energy keep our blood sugar level, keeps the crankiness away and allows all of us to really enjoy each other’s company.
- Get in the game. Your kids want to play with you, take the opportunity to engage them. Take a few pictures and then put the phone down because you’ll never get this moment back. Your kids will never be this little again, and I know for a fact that your kids will have a better time with you then without you.
- Use your tools. Bring your stroller, bring your baby carrier, a blanket, a tent… Bring whatever tool you need to be able to participate. I like to bring my Ergo and carry Emory in there. That way I have two hands ready to lift another kid or two tie someone’s shoelaces or to give someone water. It takes a toll on my back, but when I’m able to use these things to my advantage, it’s easier for me to participate and have a great time with them.
This mama was hanging out with her babe, it was the sweetest thing and so smart of the zookeepers to keep them both behind a fence. All the kids would have gone crazy trying to pet the baby goat.
She wanted to brush all of the goats and had a blast doing it.
Check out his face friends. He’s so proud to be standing next to that cute little goat. I’m just glad we had plenty of hand sanitizer.
This is Alex’s sweet mama who visited a couple of weeks ago.
