Summer is my craziest time of year. I was a teacher before becoming a stay-at-home mom. Through teaching I met my husband and many of my close friends. So when summer comes around, they are all off on vacation, keeping my calendar full! It’s so hard to keep my two year-old on a schedule during the summer, but she sure does have a lot of fun! Here are a few of the things we did this summer!
Play Ball! I can’t say I’m much of a sports fan without lying, but my hubby loves baseball! I enjoy going to Oakland A’s games with him and now our daughter. We attended a few games this summer, decked out in green and yellow. A 3+ hour baseball game is a lot for a 2-year-old to sit through, so I am thankful for the Kid’s Zone! They have games, face-painting, and opportunities to meet the A’s mascot Stomper!
Marina Beach! We live about 2 hours away from the beach, making quick day trips to the beach totally doable. We went on an overnight trip to Marina Beach in June. The beach was small and quiet, perfect for a relaxing time. There was a man parasailing over our heads. It was perfect. The weather was actually too cold to go to the beach on day two, so we found a nice bike trail and let D ride her scooter! I think this was her favorite part of the trip.
Pinecrest! Pinecrest is a small lake in California. A friend and I ditched our babies and had a Mommies Day Out! We hiked around the lake (WAY longer than I expected), relaxed on the little beach, rented a kayak, then stayed late to watch Jurassic World at their outdoor theater!
Monterey Bay Aquarium! For my husband’s birthday, we went to Monterey for the day to visit the Aquarium. We had gone in the spring, but man was it busy! Unfortunately it wasn’t much better on the Tuesday we went. Still, we had a great time checking out the sea life and then eating sushi for dinner!
Well, that was my summer and the reason I was MIA on the blog. Looking forward to getting back to it and sharing my newest adventure with you-doing homeschool preschool with my almost 3 year old! 😉
