Our Annie’s Canyon Trail Adventure

6 Nov trail walk Annie's canyon trail adventure

If you are ever in San Diego, CA and enjoy hiking, this is one nature trail to take located in San Elijo Lagoon County Park and Ecological Reserve.

Hubby wanted to surprise the boys and me with a little nature walk and didn’t mention certain “strenuous” parts of the trail. Oh man, I think you can hear me running out of breath a couple of times (hey, I was also trying to record and talk to ya’ll).

In the end, this hiking trail was beautiful; it was surrounded with trees, a lagoon, and the magnificent boulders.

We hope to instill in our boys the desire to explore and be adventurous and curious about the world indoors and outdoors. There is so much to discover and so much to appreciate when we are open to it.

We love adventure and would any cool places you can recommend us. We are planning a trip to Yosemite Park in the spring so let us know what’s along the way!

One of the great things about having a kid in pre-school is the sweet crafts they make for parents. Case in point my husband and my Valentine’s gift from Rockford.

My Boys Bartering

Kids making business deals

Fair exchanges

My two-year old, Rocco,walks over to where I’m at , takes me by the hand to where he and his brother, Rockford, are having breakfast. He shows me he has finished all his sausages and gestures that he wants the ones sitting on Rockford’s plate. Without saying anything, he picks up his piece of nutri-grain bar from his own plate and hands it to Rockford. Rockford, in turn, places his sausages on Rocco’s plate. And just like that, my boys learned how to barter.

I guess I was called over to supervise their transaction. Who says it’s too early to learn Business 101 at home?

I Vote for me is a Vote for Lightening McQueen

It has been truly rewarding…and entertaining to go through a Presidential Nomination process with my 3 1/2-year-old son, Rockford. He has shown his love for his country and Presidents’ since he was two. Now I see him striving to grasp how a person becomes President and what type of person makes for a good president. Get a kick out of his perspective like we, his parents have.
