Woo Hoo!!! It’s finally 50 degrees here in Chicagoland! I am SO excited because that means more time spent outdoors and not cooped up in the house. To celebrate this break in the weather, here are my favorite things to do outside in the springtime – for free, near the house.
1.) Run around the backyard. My son loves to be outside to do…well, anything really. Blowing bubbles, kicking around the soccer ball, and just enjoying the fresh air. We plan to do A LOT of that this year.
2.) Head to a local park. I’m lucky in that there are 4-5 really nice parks within walking distance of my house. And, while swinging on the swings isn’t exactly my son’s favorite thing to do at the park, he does love going down the slides and climbing up the ladders. Hopefully we have enough rain-free days to visit the park!
3.) Go for a bike ride. Admittedly, my son is a little too young to join us on a bike ride (and those bicycle trailers for the kids kinda freak me out), but I love to hop on a bike as much as possible. Nature trails – here I come!!!
That’s it for this week’s Friday faves – got to go enjoy the fresh air!!!
