Rocking no pants, tube socks and high tops at the park today.
We're visiting the town where my husband grew up. We have had so much fun catching up with old friends, visiting Disney and hanging out at the beach. We stayed at a great air bnb with a pack n play and a giant wagon with beach toys and towels. The owner even put covers over the electrical outlets! We love staying at air bnbs and consider it our number one parenting travel "hack." ... More
We had a great time at Disneyland yesterday but I COULD NOT believe how crazy the lines were. There was literally no place for him to get down and play without being mowed over! We didn't end up seeing any characters at all (45 min plus wait times!)- for someone who didn't know anything about Disney, this is CRAZY to me! They ran out of viewing areas for the parade so we ended up leavin... More

My new favorite coffee shop. The baristas are super sweet with the kids and there's indoor and outdoor seating. The line on the weekends is intense but weekdays isn't too bad. Parking is a breeze! Try the Snowy Plover. My little (and me!) love the chocolate chip cookies. The inside is tiny- our umbrella stroller barely fits.
We love this bakery! Super kid-friendly but tiny. (Our bob stroller barely fits inside.) SO busy on weekends but the line moves pretty quickly.

Super kid friendly (and can bring your dog!) $5 kids meal. It's not on the menu but they can make chocolate milk. We love it here! Super stroller friendly and the baristas are so nice. Also, wine. Also, beer. Also, pizza. Great to warm up after playing across the street!
the mill is great for kids and strollers... more so during the week than on weekends. We like to sit at the front (space for a stroller and the bench is easier for kids to sit on.)- for $4 you can get a slice of toast with butter. I'm running a knitting group for parents next Saturday at the Mill at 1pm!
I LOVE having a babysitting exchange. A friend of mine switch back and forth so we each get one free date night per month! Last night my husband and I went and saw Hidden Figures and it was so good! It saves a lot of money and lets me see my old nanny charge. Does anyone else do a babysitting exchange?
