little adventures

Staying inside all day long can make for really long days. It's not fun to always be indoors, a little daily adventure or outing is always something that helps break up the day and gives us something to look forward to. It's harder to get out of the house every day in the winter, so I'm not sure what we'll do when these chilly days stick around. We can only play outside in the cold or snow for so long [or not at all depending]. Here are some of our favorite things to do and some that we're just starting. 

this picture is from a warm summer day :) 

- going on walks. We love to be outside and walking is such a fun way for us to exercise together. Need I say more?  

- playing at the park. Most of our walks end up at the park where we play for quite some time. We could stay there all day and Emerson would be as happy as a clam. 

- going to the library. After our trip to the library for story time last week I decided it was something we needed to do more! It will be especially great for the cold winter months. 
- browsing the aisles of Target. Exciting, I know. But sometimes we just need to get out of the house. And somehow Target is just more exciting than staying at home or going to the grocery store. These trips usually happen once a week. 

That's what we like to do for our little outings. What do you do to get out of the house and add some excitement into your days? Especially during the cold winter months? 

Thanks for linking up with us! This is the last of the series for a bit. Enjoy your Holiday season and the special days with your family. 

What are your favorite toddler outings?  Check out the other mama's blogs for their ideas  And be sure to link up with us below if you also have a post on this topic. 

In the difficulty of motherhood, it's so important to find other mamas to relate to.  Toddlers can be a handful and leave you wondering what to do next.  This series is here to help you navigate through toddlerhood while being able to relate to other mamas going through the same thing.  We may not always know what we are doing but we give it our best shot anyway.  Come back each week to check out our new topic and read along with the other hosts of our One Year and Beyond series!

haha to Target! I love doing that too! And Baby Fox doesn't mind either, so win-win in my book!

My son, who hates to shop with me, loves Target b/c he knows it usually means he gets a new toy (most of the time from the dollar section!). His very favorite thing to do though is play cars in the dirt in the front yard!
