Things have been crazy busy the past few weeks with vacations and small trips to the coast. And of course my most recent trip to Los Angeles. I am really slacking about getting all of this up on the blog lately. Ahhh! But anyway, between all of the craziness, we haven't really had a chance to see some of our favorite people. So the other day, I met up with my best friend and her kiddos for a play date at the park. We went to a new park that I had never been to, and it was fabulous! Lots of fun stuff for the boys to do and climb on.

I just think it's so important to make time to get outside. Whether it's to the beach, or taking a little hike somewhere, playing at a new (or old) park, hitting up your local water park or splash pad... etc. Kids really thrive when they are outdoors exploring. The freedom to be able to run around and be crazy, it's so good for their little minds and bodies!
But!! Don't forget to bring water to keep the kiddos hydrated, and of course, snacks. Something yummy that will give them nutrition and energy. For us, that has been CLIF Bars lately. Specifically the Zbar's. My kids devour those things. No joke. Easton is like "quit taking pictures mom, and give me a Zbar!" lol.
Other CLIF Kid snacks are Zbar Protien, Zfruit, and ZFruit + Veggie. All very yummy, nutritious snacks!
And in fact, CLIF Kid strongly urges children & families to be active and get outdoors to play. They've created an online hub that provides tips & tools to encourage and promote play for kids of all ages! Check it out here.
See, I told you, this child will inhale these things. ;-)
What are your favorite places to go play outdoors? And what are you favorite snacks to bring to keep your children energized!?
