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!
Homeschooling Mom Fail
Click Here to Watch Video
When you think you have it all together and your kid thinks you suck you got yourself a big fat “Mom Fail”.
One month into homeschooling and I apparently have not been doing as great as a job as I thought. Nothing ails a parent more than to see your child upset and when it’s your fault it’s even more disheartening.
Have you ever encountered this in parenting or in homeschooling? What happened and how did you handle with your child?
Our DIY Strawberry Garden
Click here to see Video
We’ve been wanting a strawberry garden for some time now so we finally decided to set out to our local Home Depot and create our own custom strawberry garden.
Every errand and trip with my kiddos is an adventure in itself. Funny, kids will always find something to amuse themselves with.
I hope you can see all the items used to create our garden. One thing not shown here is our drip system. You can water it yourself or add a drip system to ensure there is enough moister for plants. All material was purchased at Home Depot and put together by hubby.
Do you have a garden? If so, what do you think is the biggest challenge maintaining it?

Boys and their toys
Can’t believe what she just called us
I grew up with Barbie and G.I. Joe dolls (well when my brothers weren’t looking). They are all dolls to me, but apparently that doesn’t fly with boys…
My Funny Valentine
My son’s Valentine gift to parents
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.
Happy Birthday Lincoln and Washington
He made sure we celebrated Presidents’ Day! 2/2012
Not every kid wakes up happy and excited for Abraham Lincoln’s birthday…but this is my son Rockford and he always makes sure we recognize a great leader in our nation.
