We often have days when we don’t want to drive to far, but definitely want the kids to run their energy out, and I want to effortlessly use my camera. Hiking through Vasquez Rocks has become our new family workout and photography hot spot. My boys get to play outside, jump over things, find lizards and enjoy the moment.
This post was originally going up on Friday, but life happens! I have a few cool products that I’ve come to love enough to share them with you.

Now I’m not saying blast your last dollar to enjoy day, but that’s basically what I do when I set our local family travel budget. We’re a family of 4, shit gets expensive real quick. Let me share some of my stress less + adventure tips as we stop to visit the Aquarium of the Pacific.
I’ll admit that I lose track of my goals, priorities and life in general – wayyyy too easily. With our typical family stuff, I forget to really sit back and enjoy the little things.

ADULTING! That’s when we pick up a quick subway and head straight to our local Bridgeport pond and feed the ducks.
