Kidspace

Ok, I am so not used to LA having a winter, we haven’t had one in like 5 years, and I’m out of practice. On the one hand it’s fun to bundle up, on the other hand,  in 10 years I haven’t gone a year without being at the beach in a swimsuit in February, and you can’t really beat that. BUT this past week, it felt like spring!!! We are loving it! Hudson has played in the backyard for hours each day, we get to leave our windows open without getting super cold (I know I’m totally spoiled and a whimp when it comes to the “cold”), and we get to start revisiting our favorite outdoor spots. Hudson has been asking to go to Kidspace for weeks, and we finally got to go! It is our favorite kids museum in LA. It’s right in Pasadena next to the Rose Bowl, and you could easily spend the entire day there. They have indoor and outdoor play/explore areas and our favorite part in the summer is the river where kids can walk up and down the rocks and play with buckets and there’s a little waterfall, it is AMAZING! PS … I’m dying over their little faces in these pictures. Ah, I love them.

Happy Monday!

Balboa Strawberry Festival

On Saturday we found out that there was a strawberry festival just twenty minutes away on Sunday, I mean … a festival for strawberries … yes please. So after church we headed up, and when we got there it was kind of like a farmers market but with lots of fun strawberry treats and fun games for kids. We had the most amazing fish tacos with strawberry salsa, chocolate covered strawberries, and there was this crazy chili, pineapple, strawberry drink everyone was raving about. Hudson loved cranking the water toys and driving “his fire Jeep” – he’s obsessed with Jeeps, like father like son. He’s the most passionate kid I’ve ever met, I love watching him enjoy things the way he does. It was a great way to spend our afternoon! Have a great weekend!! xo, Jac IMG_7882

LA Zoo

We have been really trying to take advantage of all that this beautiful city has to offer. We haven’t had a zoo pass for about a year, and when I was in Texas Jake took Hudson and renewed it. I’m not sure who enjoys it more, but I have no doubt we’ll be spending a lot of time there this summer! Jake was able to get some amazing shots of the lions, and according to the lion keeper getting shots of them showing affection is really rare, so that was fun. Hudson still hasn’t stopped talking about all the animals! Sofia did great on her first zoo trip! Clearly she slept through it all.
Happy Wednesday!
