    Honestly I’m not a huge outdoor person but I make an effort because I know it’s good for the soul! A nice simple walk, either in my neighborhood or the woods always does the trick.

    My daughter is only 5 months old, but I make it a point to bring her outside every day. It’s usually for an hour long walk with her in our Onya, but sometimes I’ll run with her in the B.O.B. stroller. Rain or shine, I want her to see the importance of getting out and being active!

    My little one isn’t born yet but I really hope he or she feels the same way as I do. I loved being outside and day dreaming and playing pretend as a kid. Also riding my bike. We will go to the playground often, I’m sure (it’s right next to our house!) and make sure the dog gets plenty of exercise.
