Family trip to Lake Cuyamaca

13 Nov Lake Cuyamaca- family trip- san diego- nature trail

Our Trip to Lake Cuyamaca

Lake Cuyamaca - boy in lake- ducks- family adventure

CLICK HERE TO WATCH!

What a beautiful nature adventure just 50 miles east of San Diego. Our boys had a blast watching the ducks, geese, coyote, and deer. Yes, there is a coyote the locals call “the shy coyote” and true to his name he saw us and ran off to hide.

My boys fed the ducks and geese, climbed trees, hiked some trails, threw rocks into the lake, and ran around up and down the pier.  Who says fun family adventures have to be costly? We ate lunch at our loca In-and-Out before heading there and then had dinner at home.

When (not if, but when) we vist Lake Cuyamaca¬†again, I’ll be sure to pack us a picnic, enjoy rowing a boat with the family, and again take in all the beauty that beckons you to come again.

We are on a mission to rediscover our city and parks nearby one family adventure at a time. Please share with us a trip you think we should take.

Presidential Funnies

My Pint-Size Patriot

Rockford the Politico

Boy next to USA flag

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.

I wish I was so lucky, but at least I can do this for my kids. Here is my challenge to you…
