Winter Playtime

For the rest of the country winter playtime on a sunny day likely means outdoor ice skating, skiing, snow shoeing or other general snow/cold weather play. For those of us fortunate enough to live on the milder west coast, winter playtime means what playtime almost always means – beach time.

Whether it’s Chika exploring all the wonderful beachy smells or Bushboy taking advantage of the wide open space, the beach inspires play.

Bushboy being, well, a boy.

You can sign up for outdoor camps, and they are fun and worthwhile. You can do organized sports or lessons and they give your child confidence and coordination. But nothing, absolutely nothing, is better than just getting outside. It requires no money, just a commitment of time and interest. And the rewards? You’ll see.

I'll take every moment of this I can get.

  1. I love that picture of the two of you! And I totally agree with you about “just going outside.” :-)

  2. i’d usually say i like nothing better than pictures of chicka, but that last photo of you and bb is just to sweet for words!
    glad you’re able to get outside and enjoy the fresh air.
    it definitely recharges the soul!

  3. Chika! I’ll have to echo the others…such a great picture of you and BB…I see the curls are back!

Welcome! I always like to hear what people think of a post, it often leads to a great discussion! I am now responding to comments and questions right in the comments themselves, so other people can follow the conversation.
