Exploring Nature – Stroller Style

The weather has been a bit spring-like in MA – so baby & I have been exploring nature.

First, we went for a walk around Turner Pond in Milton.

Elise loved looking at the ducks with Grandma Martha!

Next, we visited Webb Memorial Park in Weymouth with all of the Kempe family: Dad, Grandma, Grandpa, 2 Aunts, and an Uncle!

The views there were breathtaking! Auntie and Grandpa took Elise out of her stroller to give her a better view.

Finally, on Sunday, we visited with my side of the family and took Elise for a stroll on Revere Beach.

That one put Elise to sleep but I was happy for the walk with Elise’s Grandmother, Great Grandmother, & Dad.

We’re looking forward to lots more outdoor adventures when the weather in New England remembers it’s supposed to be spring, not winter.

Peek A Blue Hike

Peek A Blue Sign

My 4 month old Elise, her Grandmother, and I had a wonderful time at the first Peek A Blue Hike of 2018!

The hikes are in the Blue Hills of Milton, MA.
LL Bean sends a guide to lead and read stories.

Friends of the Blue Hills provide a song break and awesome snacks!

Snacks included coffee for adults, mini water bottles, juice boxes, apple slices, goldfish, mini muffins…and probably something else I’m forgetting.

There are 2 routes – one stroller friendly & one with hiking.

We chose the stroller friendly but I plan to carry Elise in her front carrier next time to see if we like the other route better. The stroller route was a bit of a steeper climb than we expected.

Hope to see you at a future hike!

Photo Blogging Challenge – Five

march2018

The theme for the March Photo Blogging Challenge was “Five”.

I had trouble finding time to take photos this month, but here’s what I came up with.

Five tiny fingers on my daughter’s hand.

Her nails can only be trimmed while she’s sleeping.

How adorable is this announcement from my friend that she’s having twins?!

She’s a math teacher and I love her creativity!

 

Thanks for checking out my photos!

This monthly photo blogging challenge is facilitated by PJ of the Northeast Bloggers Network.

 

Free fitness at Cambridgeside

One of my favorite things about spring & summer in MA is the return of free fitness classes!

They pop up all over the city.

For indoor workouts, my favorite is Cambridgeside.

Hope to see you at a class!

I’m sad I missed BollyX. They’re my favorite dance workout.

Brooks Bra Bash

Did you know, “sports bras should never celebrate a birthday”?

I headed to Brooks Bra Bash at Marathon Sports in Boston to get a free sports bra fitting from Brooks.

Since having a baby, I had no idea what my bra size is.

Can’t get back to getting fit if I don’t have workout clothing!

Thanks to the fitting, I got an awesome comfortable, new sports bra from Brooks that has enough compression that my large chest won’t bounce when I run!

Thank you to Marathon Sports for hosting!

I’m not even 5k ready post baby, but maybe I’ll get to marathon shape some day.

Opinions are my own. I was not compensated. Just a happy customer!
