This morning was amazing. Foggy, 60 degrees, a little wet out from all the rain we’ve had. A cup of tea kind of day. We were supposed to hang out with a friend this morning, but she wasn’t feeling well. So we instead went for a walk.
L and I love going on walks. I mean LOVE it. We usually go on walks 3-4 times a week when it’s nice. It tends to be “nice” enough to go on a walk during the fall (hey, that’s my favorite season), beginning of winter, and during the spring.
L’s favorite part is collecting things. Like every child’s favorite part, right? Acorns, walnuts, leaves, sticks, pinecones, and some other things usually end up in our hands. It’s so fun watching her touch things, learn about textures, and expand her vocab. I can’t believe she’ll be 2 in a month!
And what’s the best thing to hold your 2 year old’s collection of sticks? Well a wagon of course! This wagon is perfect for putting her collections in. It even has cup holders, a tray, storage, and a canopy attachment. It’s perfect for toting kids and their stuff around at the zoo, park, mall, etc. It is well worth the money! Highly recommended!
A walk isn’t complete without splashing in some muddy puddles. In your new shoes, of course.
My favorite part is watching her and being outside. I love hearing the all the sounds: birds chirping, squirrels munching away, cars driving by, kids in school playing on the playground. Walking also happens to be one of my favorite dates with my husband. We love walking and looking at houses together.
