Hello Spring and hello fun sandals and comfy sneakers! We are all about the warmer temps and sunshine and are looking forward to spending some much needed time outdoors in the coming weeks. Delilah and Sawyer both enjoy taking walks, swinging on our swing set in the backyard and being outside with the neighborhood kids. Delilah is a huge fan of summer and all the outdoor activities that go along with it. Her favorites include playground fun, basketball, hopscotch, sidewalk chalk, and riding her scooter and bike around our court.
Although Sawyer is not quite mobile he loves to sit up in his stroller and watch all of the outdoor commotion, which pairs perfectly with a large cup of coffee on the porch while I keep an eye on big sissy. In the mornings we like to take walks up to our local bagel shop for breakfast and then stop in the grocery store to pick up something for dinner. Delilah likes to decide on desert which is usually smores during the summer months. We have an outdoor fireplace that makes the best smores and we like to make a night of it with good food and music to boot. We love how the warmer weather gives us freedom to get some exercise and utilize our outdoor living space. Is it me or does the food during Spring and Summer just taste so much more yummy when it’s cooked on the grill. The fruits and veggies are even amazing. I wish I could eat Spring and Summer food all year round, I love the lighter fare!
With Spring in full swing we have started to plan out our summer routine. Delilah will be out of her pre-K program in the middle of June and then we will officially be summering until after Labor Day when Delilah goes to Kindergarten, que the waterworks over here, mamas! We have our Spring Break trip approaching in late April and we will be jet setting to Jamaica with the kiddos in tow. We couldn’t be more excited to swim and enjoy the beach and Caribbean life. We had so much fun in The Bahamas this past December that we are eager to create more island memories.
With the seasons changing and upcoming vacations we are in full shopping mode for the right apparel and footwear that will keep the babes comfortable while they play and have a ton of fun in the sun. Stride Rite is our go to brand when it comes to footwear. I can always rely on Stride Rite to deliver stylish shoes that will keep our babes tootsies comfortable and safe. Delilah is quite the shoe connoisseur and can be a bit picky when it comes to her clothes and shoes, girl props, I know! She is totally in love with her newest pair of sandals from Stride Rite.
The Zuly Sandal has her overjoyed with its pretty metallic fabric and comfortable footbed. These sandals feel good on her feet and boast easy velcro closures, making it easy for her to slip on and off by herself as she is in and out of the backyard. I love their versatility and that they can be paired with a cute sundress for special occasions or with a cute pair of shorts and tee for a casual day outside and on the playground.
Now that Sawyer is sitting up and becoming more interested in crawling and taking steps, we are starting to introduce him to sneakers. I love the Soft Motion Ripley Sneaker as a first sneaker for Sawyer. This sneaker gives flexibility for natural movement and has rounded soles to to improve Sawyers balance as he becomes a rookie walker. The memory foam footbed and extra wide opening ensure his tootsies are super comfortable while making my life easier when putting on his cute kicks! Not only are these sneaks healthy for your little babes feet, they are oh so cute and come in many fun hues! Go check out Stride Rite today and stock up on their Spring fashions for your littles. Happy Shopping, mamas!
