It is still Strawberry Season!

It is strawberry picking time here in Florida! (Get it? Pick of the Week?) Benders Farm (Click Here to read a Review) is The Girls Strawberry Farm now doing U-Pick Strawberries.  We also love to go to UPDATE:  No Strawberries at the Girls this year.  It’s sad!  The Girls U-Pick (Click Here for a Review) it is a lovely way to spend an afternoon, even without the strawberries though.

Hiking Season!  Get out in nature!

Grab the chance to take the kids a little hike!  Need some tips for hiking with the Family?  Check out 5 Tips for Hiking with Kids or 5 Tips for Birding with Kids!  We love Boca’s best secret hiking trail (Yamato Scrub Natural Area)!  I also love Pondhawk Nature Center, it has stroller friendly paths and is near the playground.   Daggerwing Nature Center is really nice too, loads of playground, a nice small interactive education center, and of course playgrounds!

The calendar is filling up quickly!  Please make sure that we don’t miss your next event and submit your event today!

Daggerwing Nature Center

Patch Reef Park Winter FairOkay, I had to type and retype that headline 3 times! 2015! Happy New Year! I wanted to take a moment to thank you all for reading the site.  I hope you and families have a fabulous new year in 2015!

We have been very busy, you know the usual, the beach and the pool.  Not our typical January, but I won’t complain with our friends up North freezing!  Although I will admit I did complain a few nights ago when our AC quit and it was 85 degrees in the condo!

We went to Patch Reef Park for the Winter Fair over the break, it was a good time (crazy hot though).

I am looking forward to the cooler weather that is supposed to come in tomorrow!  Grab Daggerwing Nature Centerthe chance to take the kids a little hike!  Need some tips for hiking with the Family?  Check out 5 Tips for Hiking with Kids or 5 Tips for Birding with Kids!  We love Check out one of Boca’s best secret hiking trail (Yamato Scrub Natural Area)!  I also love Pondhawk Nature Center, it has stroller friendly paths and is near the playground.  I almost forgot to tell you, we went to Daggerwing Nature Center as well.

The Week Ahead Events List for South Florida 11/6/13

Playground at Patch Reef Park in Boca Raton

I hope you are all enjoying the break from the heat this week.  We have done very little except hang out on the porch watching the kids ride their bikes, scoot, run and play with sidewalk chalk.  In fact I have been neglecting just about everything in favor of watching them play and reading a book in the breeze.

Playground at Patch Reef Park in Boca Raton
No worries, it is just pretend!

With Veterans Day coming up on Monday, I think a good day in the park is in order!  So my pick of the week is one of my new favorite parks!  Patch Reef Park in Boca Raton!  Get out and take a walk in nature, this is the time of year to be grateful that we live in South Florida!
