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.

For the  Love of Fishing

Today we are heading out to a beach camping trip that has been long overdue…not so much for us as a family, but for my husband. For this reason I want to write my sons a letter to enlighten them on the significance and inspiration behind this trip by sharing with them a little about their Daddy’s childhood memories.
 

Honoring Memorial Day by instilling Patriotism in our children

30 May

Honoring Yesterday’s and Today’s Soldiers

Shaping Tomorrow’s Heroes

Honoring fallen soldiers

As a mother of two boys I am compelled to instill in them the love, respect and admiration for the men and women who serve this great country of ours.  My older son is three and I believe he is old enough to start learning about the real reason we commemorate Memorial Day. However, I was not quite sure how I would do this so I called on the wisdom of friends. I’d like to share these ideas with you.

Eric Carle The Very Hungry Caterpillar

It's not easy being green

A couple of months ago when my son was obsessed with Eric Carle’s book, “The Very Hungry Caterpillar“, he decided to act out his inner caterpillar during our family outing…not very clever.

The nickname you earned yourself your first year of life was “Smily Joe” because you are such a smily baby. You always know how to make everyone smile and laugh. I Love you son.

"How you doing?"

My soon to be 3-year-old loves to learn and for a long time we thought he would be our “nerdy, safety first” child. Then he goes and surprised us with his funky dancing the other day and last night with this hip hop rap…
