One of the things I love about our neighborhood is the abundance of parks and woodsy trails! There's few things more exciting to the children than getting to explore a new park with trails where "We don't know where it goes!". :)
I usually try to make our walks long enough to be worth all the trouble of getting 4 kids ready to go. Thankfully we have a variety of playtime options within walking distance of our apartment! :)
My sandwich: Turkey, mayo, lettuce, cheese, and tomato
Taking lunch along means we get to play longer, no hungry tummies on the way back home, and the crumbs are on the grass instead of the dining room carpet! Win, win, win!! :)
With the Ergo baby carrier, my favorite water bottles are even handier to take along on a hike. I am really, really enjoying the Ergo! Along with being very comfy and quick to put on, it has a zipper pocket and D-rings for my water bottles, features my mei tai doesn't have. The mei tai folds up smaller, is also easy to use, and is very comfortable (JUST as comfy as the Ergo in my opinion, until the child is a couple years old).
All in all, I find that I prefer a carrier (Ergo or mei tai) for our walks rather than a stroller -- maybe partly since using our stroller means carrying it up and down the stairs from the apartment. The summer here also isn't too hot, so wearing Moshe keeps him toasty warm on chilly days. :)
Sweet Moshe is 6 months old now! He gets so much love and attention from all of us, I'm convinced he's pampered more than any of the other kids ever were! :) I love this orange striped shirt on the little guy, and I really love the 3 BumGenius diapers that were so generously passed down to us and which are so, SO handy to take along on hikes and picnics! :)
Our street was being worked on by some big trucks, and I snapped this picture as the children were all standing on the deck, trying to see what was happening down there. :)
Remember the "5 Questions" game? I thought I'd try to do a round-up of everyone who answered questions from me. I thought I was a question expert but phew! I was pretty tired after brainstorming 5 questions for each person! :)
My posts answering your questions (so far):
Books, music, clothes, menu planning, etc.
My dream house, life stuff, etc.
Schedules, books, favorite foods, etc.
Weddings, babies, cooking inspiration, hobbies. etc.
People who played along (5 questions from me, answered on their blogs!):
Those links all go directly to their interviews! :) Thanks for playing along, ladies. :)
