Family trip to Lake Cuyamaca

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.

Homeschooling Mom Fail

Homeschooling Mom Fail

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

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?

Sometimes my son says the funniest things, but when I think about it, it has more to do with his perspective than his sense of humor.

As we are in the borderline getting ready to cross to the United States I ask Rockford, “Rockford if the border patrol agent asks you where you were born what are you going to say?” He answers from the backseat with certainty, “In Mama’s belly!”

According to Rockford

Hmm,the way I see it…
 
Get the job done mama
 
I am getting ready doing my make up in the bathroom when Rockford walks in.
 
Rockford:  “Are you ready Mama?”
Me: “No, I’m not done doing my make up.”
Rockford: “Let me see.”  (Examines my face as if witnessing unfishined work) “Oh, yeah you’re not.”
 
…What is that suppose to mean?

Me: “Look Rockford! Look at all those birds!”

RF: “Those aren’t birds Mama. Those are parrots.”
