This week we went on a little family hike. The kids had so much fun and I just had to share the pictures we snapped! This is one of the ways I like to show my kids that being active and adventurous is good for us. Too many kids are spending endless hours on iPads (not saying my kids don’t do this Nicholas certainly does play on the iPad a lot) watching TV and not getting outside and getting dirty or exploring. I’m not a believer of no electronics, but I love seeing my kids explore and learn outside so I try to find things that will be fun for them. On the way home from a shopping trip we stopped at this hiking trail and explored for about 30 minutes. We stopped at Santa Susana Park, it was a relatively easy trail and I thought it was perfect for Nicholas (3) and Emilia (18 months).
