Fall Activities With Toddlers

Hello, and happy Sunday! My little one developed quite the cold overnight and feels pretty yucky. She is trying to sleep on my husband, and I am laying next to them. The changing weather always does this. Ugh!

Fall has always been my favorite season, despite the sickness that seems to come every year. The weather is perfect to get outside without being too hot or cold. We have had an absolute blast this Fall. K is so fun and curious this year and I absolutely love it! I am going to share some of our favorite things we have done so far (all while socially distancing).

Farm fun! K got to feed goats, have fall muffins, take a hayride, and pick pumpkins.
Choosing the perfect pumpkin.
Painging gourds and pumpkins! We put her in just a diaper when she painted her pumpkin and she ended up painting herself, too! It was so fun and messy!
We did a hayride during the weekday when there was only a few other people at the local farm. It was a great way to spend the afternoon!
Halloween stickers! K absolutely loves these!! My mom got her a ton from the dollar tree.

We have also done apple picking and a lot of baking!

If she is better by next weekend, we plan on going to Boo at the Zoo.

Well friends, that’s all for today. I am off to spend the day cuddled up with my sweet family!

All my love,

Carly

A Family, Food, And Fitness Update

Hi, all!! The baby is napping and my cleaning is done, so I am relaxing with my cats and favorite chocolate. My mind has been racing quite a bit with everything going on, but I have been counting my blessings every day. Here is a little life update….

BABY:

Or should I say toddler? This kid keeps me on my toes, and I just adore her. She is learning new skills every day, and is absolutely hilarious. She is walking along everything, but not quite without support yet! She makes my days fun, but definitely has way more energy than me.

FITNESS:

Working out at home has been pretty fun actually! I have been using bands, my new kettlebells (thanks, mom), running, and the baby is awesome added weight for squats and stairs. Plus, she thinks it is funny. Win for everyone!!

FOOD:

We are trying to continue to eat well, and cook healthy, tasty meals! Just a few favorites that my wonderful husband cooked…

FAMILY:

When the days are nice, we take walks. Yesterday, we went for a long family walk. It was wonderful! We have some beautiful areas around and the baby loves riding in her truck.

We utilize facetime often to see our families, and play trivia with mine! It has been so fun. We miss everyone though!

PROJECTS:

We have been trying to do some fun projects around the house. My sister-in-law and I made a flag pallet and it turned out so cute!

We also have been working on a puzzle and have a great start on it.

OTHER:

My husband is still working, but baby K and I are hunkered down and enjoying our days together. I hope you are all staying safe and healthy!

That’s all for today!

All my love,

Carly

Fit Friday And Other Favorites

Hello, and happy Friday! Another week in the house, and I am still staying busy with a very active 14 month old.

Let’s talk favorites from the week…

FITNESS:

On the warm days, I put K in the stroller and take my workouts outside. I like to run, do hills, stroller barre, and bands.

On colder days, I have been trying to get more creative inside. I like to do YouTube workouts, especially ones using the loop bands.

I also run the stairs in my house, use the elliptical, and do yoga.

FOOD:

Grilled turkey burger and veggies.

A loaded salad! One of my favorite things.

My mom treated me and K to Northstar Cafe for a curbside pickup today! It was so nice of her, especially since we aren’t able to see her right now. I had the pesto basil burrito with broccoli and peanut sauce. K had the kids quesadillas with broccoli! YUM.

She sure loved her meal!

We both have leftovers, too! Yay!

BABY FUN:

K got to color Easter eggs! She had so much fun, and snuck some tastes of whipped cream haha

We have also been coloring, playing with pots/pans, splashing in water, and reading tons of books!

OTHER:

*True Crime Podcasts

*The Libby app for my kindle. It is linked to my library card and I can read tons of books.

*Shutterfly! I have been finally working on K’s photo album from her first year.

That’s about all for today. Have a wonderful weekend and Easter!

With love,

Carly
