After being cooped up with colds (and a double case of conjunctivitis for me) last week, our family was itching to get out of the house and get a little sunshine this weekend. Luckily we had some nice weather (high in the low 80s, low humidity) on Saturday, so we all loaded up in the car and took a drive out to Lake Monroe for a change of pace from our normal park and restaurants in town. First things first - lunch - at one of our favorite spots out there, The Scenic View. Afterwards, Adam navigated down to a small empty beach where we let Felix play around and throw rocks into the water (I assume all like kids love this just as much, right?) We wandered in some wooded areas, picked flowers, Felix wondered “Bear?” (he’s very into Winnie the Pooh right now) and we all got the fresh air we needed.
Just as I was milling about in PJs all week, Felix was pretty much in tee shirts and diapers. I decided to put into a real “outfit” for our outing and I think he looks so cute in little button down shirts (we took it off for lunch…just in case of a big spill). I’ve also found layers to be beneficial with kids when they get their first layer messy too - just throw on a hoodie (or in the case of summer, a little short sleeved collar shirt like this) and voila! Clean(er) looking kiddo! Then again, what do I know? His feet were wet within seconds and he sat down in the dirt just after these photos were snapped. Big thanks to today’s post sponsors at Old Navy and for the gift card I used to buy his little outfit!
