Fall Outdoor Play
The colder season definitely makes the days feel shorter. With Hubby and I working around the clock, maximizing fun time outdoors with our little guy takes a bit of a strategy. Getting out of the house and enjoying the fresh air and open space is a treat for the whole family and something we should try to do all year round. Luckily, we live within walking distance to an elementary school with an awesome playground.
When he was an infant, we would visit this playground with his bassinet stroller. As he learned how to walk, we played on the baby slide. Now, one of his favorite things to do is climb the rock wall!
The monkeybars, jungle gym, and funky stairs also keep us both entertained! He's busy reaching for the highest step and Mommy is relieved by the padded groundwork.
Outdoor play is great for running, jumping, and appreciating nature and the loudness that kids enjoy! (That "quiet indoor voices" game gets old quick!)
...and of course Daddy is always working to improve our soccer technique!

Outdoor play is a great way to release energy and definitely beats being stuck inside with the iPad. What's your family's favorite outdoor activity? Let me know so we can add it to our list.
