Baby's Day Out

Make your outings with Baby fun and easy with these inspired ideas. From a short trip to the coffee shop to a stroll around the block, each small excursion offers a world of possibilities.

Amani's First Visit to the Pumpkin Patch

Every year, our local farm holds a harvest festival and has a big pumpkin patch. We pass the farm regularly on our way to the grocery store and can see the pumpkins growing in the field. Our anticipation of the harvest festival grows with each plump, pumpkin. Even though the weather has been anything but “fall-ish”, visiting the pumpkin patch really gets us in the mood for fall. Last year we were vacationing overseas, missing the harvest festival and essentially all of fall. I couldn’t wait to pick up the tradition again, this time with Amani!

Baby's First Pumpkin Patch Visit

First Trip to the State Fair!

As a stay-at-home mom, I’m always looking for reasons to get out of the house with my boys.

Recently the Arkansas State Fair came to Little Rock, an hour away from where we live. My sister-in-law, who has a 1-year-old daughter named Phoenix, called me and asked if the boys and I wanted to go to the fair. Of course, we said yes!

We had a blast! Read on to see pictures of our little ones enjoying their first time at the fair.

My Parenting Magic Trick

You know how some parents have that magic trick that you wish you could pull out of your back pocket at any given moment? Well, I think I found mine.

Getting outside.

A Day in My Life as a Mommy Blogger

A lot of people ask me what it’s like to be a blogger for Disney Baby. They usually say something along the lines of “Oh, how lucky are you?! That must be the easiest job ever!”

Well, on one hand, they’re right! Blogging is a pretty easy job. I get to tell people all about my life as a mom and gives tips and laughs here and there. The blogging part of being a mom is the easy part, but the “being a mom” part takes some work. Haha. I guess the hard part is multi-tasking: taking care of two babies at home WHILE blogging can be a little stressful, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.

So I thought I would give y’all a glimpse into my daily life as a mom and blogger. Here goes:

These Wet Bags Are Perfect for a Change in the Weather

Well, it finally happened. The glorious summer and amazing weather we’ve had in the Pacific Northwest has finally turned. As I look out the window, the rain is falling, the traditional red and orange tinged leaves are dripping water onto sidewalks, and morning headlights are reflecting off the sheen of water covering the pavement.

But in this neck of the woods, that doesn’t stop us from braving the outdoors, even with Baby. With these Bumkins wet and snack bags, we’re ready to tackle the elements.
